My Thoughts: So… wow… what should I really talk about here? It’s bad, so it’s hard to center on just one thing. The characters are choppy, the story line is unexplained for the most part, and the voices make me cringe most of the time especially Iago. I mean, It was fine when he had very little screen time but this feels like its catering to him. I mean, Iago’s singing voice is so freaken bad! IT HURTS MY EARS! More on that in the voices part.
According to Genie, he is supposed to have less power now that he’s free but we see him doing all the things he used to before he was free. There is also the fact Aladdin hasn’t married Jasmine and yet even though they are engaged, he does a lot of stupid stuff in order to get money and give it to the poor. What is he? Robin Hood of the desert? The Personalities of all the characters might have been good in the first, but they should have grown by now. Also, the Genie is way to annoying.
Seriously, they just milked this series for all it was worth. Even the ‘new villian’ feels off and I don’t even know if we can consider him a villain. He seems to be too dopey to be a villain.
The animation is cheep and unappealing for most of the time. Most of the wonderful styles seem under played and I think part of it was the long gap between the two movies. There is also a lot of inconsistencies in the artwork.
There are way too many singing in this show again. And it has to be Iago’s singing it looks like it. Again, I HATE THE SINGING! I don’t see anime doing this all the time… and please don’t try to tell me about an anime they did like this.
