Aladdin: The Return of Jafar

Corrected entry: Genie still has the bracelets on that he shed at the end of the first movie when Aladdin wished him free.

Correction: This has already been corrected. The bracelets falling off could have just have been a symbol of freedom, but they were really a part of Genie.

Corrected entry: At the end of the first movie, you see the Genie's wrist bands come off, since it was a symbol of his servitude. In Return of Jafar, his wrist bands are back on.

Correction: The falling off of the bands was just symbolic. Perhaps they were spelled to keep him in bondage. Now, they're as harmless as cufflinks.

Corrected entry: Anyone else notice that the guy that frees Jafar is the same guy that got eaten by the Cave of Wonders in the first movie?

Correction: No he isn't. The guy that got eaten in the first movie's name is Gazeem. The guy that rescued Jafar's name is Abiz Mal.

Corrected entry: When Aladdin is singing 'Forget About Love' with Jasmine, he's wearing his white royal clothing. However, as soon as the song ends, he's suddenly back in his street rat clothing. Talk about a quick change.

Correction: the movie doesnt go through every little second of every day, there was implied time after the song. they implied that time passed by showing him in different clothes.

Corrected entry: Right after the tiger barges into the dinner, for a few shots Aladdin is wearing his street rat cap (not something I would wear to a formal dinner, in my fancy clothes).

Correction: it's a fez. arabic people wore (and wear) them all the time. it's hardly a 'street rat cap'

Corrected entry: If Aladdin and Jasmine married at the end of the first movie, how come he's still wearing the 'street rat' clothes at the beginning of the second one?

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Genie is singing in the beginning of the movie, towards the end of the song when they are up in the palace, when Genie, Aladdin, and Jasmine first throw their arms out, you see that Jasmine's arms are behind Genie's. But when they turn around facing the outside, you see her arms in front of Genie's.

More quotes from Aladdin: The Return of Jafar

Trivia: "The Return of Jafar" is notable for being Disney's first direct-to-video animated sequel, and it served as the start a long line of such films in the '90s and 2000s. Though oddly, it wasn't originally meant to be a feature film. The movie instead began as an hour-long pilot for the "Aladdin" television series and was meant to air as a TV-special. But "Aladdin" series producer and co-director Tad Stones liked the story and characters so much, he pushed to expand the story and release it on VHS as a proper "sequel" to the first movie. It took some convincing, but eventually Disney executives fell in love with the idea and agreed.

Wouldn't the same thing happen to Jafar if Jafar was freed?

Yes. The same thing would happen to Jafar if Abis Mal did free him but, as seen, Abis Mal never wished for Jafar to be free. Jafar was still a genie because he still had the bands attached to his wrist.
