"To be honest, I actually didn't mind this one. I've always wanted to know moew about what the Man Village was like, so I didn't mind getting a little glimpse of Mowgli's new life. There's some rehashing, but the voice acting is top-notch, and we get some more creative settings of the ancient jungle like Ancient Ruins, which I really enjoyed. Overall, I thought this one was okay. Certainly not great, but okay."
Aladdin and the King of Thieves
August 13, 1996
"This one was actually a toss up between this and Return of Jafar. I like Dan Castellaneta's unique flavor he gives to the Genie, but in the end, Robin Williams returning as the Genie is a real treat. [Genie: This is not my fault! This one was not built to code! — Fear not, Father of the Bride, we can rebuild!] And that alone is enough to make Aladdin: King of Thieves worth the watch. But it's also a solid adventure about Aladdin meeting his Dad with an interesting, if muddled message about accepting people don't really change. While I have a soft spot for seeing Jafar return as the villain, this could definitely be seen as one of the best as well! If you like, considered it the 7th best!"

"This one is another crime not to be mentioned, because it was almost a good sequel. I mean, it doesn't have the mature majesty of the original, but this is still FAR above the usual standards of Disney sequels! Some of these song sequences were EASILY as beautiful as the originals!"
