Return of Jafar, The (film) Video release on May 20, 1994. Directed by Toby Shelton, Tad Stones, Alan Zaslove. A made-for-video sequel to Aladdin that picks up where the feature left off with the evil Jafar trapped inside a magic lamp. A clumsy thief, Abis Mal, inadvertently unleashes the now ultrapowerful “genie Jafar,” who proceeds to plot his revenge against Aladdin. It is up to Aladdin and his friends to foil Jafar and save their home. Scott Weinger, Brad Kane, Linda Larkin, Gilbert Gottfried, and Jonathan Freeman reprise their voice roles from the feature, with Val Bettin (Sultan), Liz Calloway (Jasmine singing), and Dan Castellaneta (Genie) added to their ranks. It became one of the top-selling videos of all time within weeks of its release.
