Storyline

During their wedding ceremony, Aladdin and Princess Jasmine find themselves the targets of a raid by the infamous Forty Thieves, led by a man named Cassim. Although Aladdin, Jasmine and the rest of their gang successfully stopped the raid and drove the thieves away, they are unable to prevent the wedding from being ruined. Determined to learn what the thieves were after, Aladdin finds an unusual staff (which The King of Thieves tries to steal) among the treasures given as wedding presents. The staff contains an oracle, able to see into the past or the future, but is only able to grant an answer to one question asked per person. Consulting the Oracle by John William Waterhouse, showing eight priestesses in a temple of prophecy An oracle is a person or persons considered to be the source of wise counsel or prophetic opinion; an infallible authority, usually spiritual in nature. ...


Overcome with desire to know more about his family, Aladdin asks the oracle about his long-lost father, and learns with shock that it is The King of Thieves, Cassim. Struggling to believe this information, and still curious about what the thieves' real intentions were, he tracks them down and eventually defeats Cassim's right-hand man, Saluk, in battle, gaining him a place among the thieves. It is then that he learns the true motives behind the raid, and his father's leave of absence from his family: he had discovered evidence of the existence of the Hand of Midas, a powerful artifact that can transform anything it touches into solid gold. Cassim believed that, with the Hand, he could return to his family and give them the life they deserved instead of one living out in the streets, and had instigated the raid so he could capture the oracle's staff so he may question the seer as to the precise whereabouts of the artifact. Saluk, the meanest of the forty thieves. ... In Greek mythology, Midas (in Greek, Μιδας, often referred as King Midas) is popularly remembered for his ability to turn everything he touched into gold: the Midas touch. Midas was king[1] of Pessinus, a city of Phrygia, who as a child was adopted by the king Gordias and Cybele, goddess... This article is about artifacts in fantasy and roleplaying. ... GOLD refers to one of the following: GOLD (IEEE) is an IEEE program designed to garner more student members at the university level (Graduates of the Last Decade). ...


Aladdin convinces Cassim to come back with him to the Palace as his guest and, for a while, he is happy to spend quality time with his son; but, the pull of his obsession with the Hand is too great, and he ends up stealing the Oracle's staff and gets captured by the palace guards. Aladdin helps his father escape, but he is recognized by the Captain of the Guard and forced to flee with Cassim and Iago, Aladdin's treasure-loving parrot. Rather than abandon Jasmine (like his father had left him), Aladdin angrily confronts Cassim and returns to Agrabah to take responsibility for his actions. Meanwhile, Iago and Cassim return to the thieves' cave, and find that Saluk is still alive and is now the leader of the remaining thieves. Because Saluk has tricked the remaining thieves that Cassim has informed the palace guards to capture many of the thieves, in which he didn't, Cassim is forced to use the oracle he took to find the location of the Hand: an enclosure built on the back of a gigantic undersea turtle. Iago from Aladdin, imitating Jafar. ... Agrabah is the fictional middle eastern land from the movie Aladdin,Agrabah has a huge poverty population. ...


Iago manages to escape, and leads Aladdin and Jasmine to his father. Aladdin and Cassim reconcile and retrieved the Hand once the turtle begins to submerge when they are attacked by Saluk. Then, after struggling to escape the flooding fortress, Cassim throws the Hand of Midas to Saluk, who doesn't know the legend of the Hand. Foolishly grabbing it by the gold hand (instead of the wood handle), Saluk is turned into gold. Aladdin and Cassim manage to escape with the Hand but, finally realizing how much pain his obsession with the trinket had caused, Cassim decides to toss it into the sea. However, it does not hit the sea just instantly. It hits the thieves' ship instead, turning it gold, and it sinks. As the movie closes, Aladdin and Jasmine finally tie the knot, and Cassim accepts the parrot Iago as a traveling companion as he goes off once again to see the world.

Trivia

  • The character of Jafar is saved for a brief quick mention during the beginning of the film, but is not mentioned throughout the rest of the movie.
  • In the original 1992 film, Genie makes a reference to the Forty Thieves during "Friend Like Me." In this movie, he in turn makes reference to that song when, referring to Aladdin, he tells Cassim, "You've had chums for pallin' around with, but you've never had a friend like him!"
  • Robin Williams returned to voice the Genie after Disney apologized for the use of his likeness in the promotion of the original Aladdin film (Williams believed Disney had broken the terms of his contract). Dan Castellaneta had actually recorded all the dialogue of the Genie for this film, as he did with the previous sequel due to Disney's differences with Williams, but his recording session was not used when Robin Williams agreed to reprise his role. In fact, this was Williams' only true reprise of the Genie.
  • Genie transformed into Pocahontas from Pocahontas.
    Genie transformed into Pocahontas from Pocahontas.
    Williams' many impersonations included someone he created: The title character of the 1993 comedy film Mrs. Doubtfire.
  • In the tale, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Cassim is the name of Ali Baba's brother, who is trapped in the cave after forgetting the password that opens it, and is killed by the thieves when they return.
  • Earlier ideas for the film included Aladdin finding out that Mozenrath is actually his brother. They did not use this idea because the voice actor did not agree to reprise his role, and also because the filmmakers felt they should draw attention away from the TV show, though Uncouthma and his family make cameos as Aladdin and Jasmine walk down the aisle.
  • The new Aladdin setting and the Oracle was based on Judaism of Jesus.
  • The Merchant who started telling the story of Aladdin from the first film appears at the end of this one, implying that he told his unseen audience the story of all three movies. The song that the Merchant sings is a reprise of "Arabian Nights", the opening song of the first movie. The reprise had actually been written and recorded for the first movie, but was not included in that final product.
  • At the very end of the credits, the Genie appears in front of the black screen and says, "Game over man, game over!" This is a spoof of an identical speech by the character Hudson in the movie Aliens.
