When Disney’s animated adventure movie, Aladdin arrived in cinemas back in 1992, it not only took audiences on a whirlwind tour of Agrabah, it also kick-started a long-running storyline for its central character. That storyline – which centred around the adventures of Aladdin and his friends – would be told over the course of multiple movies, as well as a popular television show.
If you followed along with the movies and show when they made their debut, then you no doubt enjoyed watching Aladdin and Co. involved in various epic tales. But if you, or your children, are only now discovering Aladdin, playing catch up could be a little confusing.
Well, be confused no more, because this post can help you out. Below you will find the entire viewing order for the Aladdin movies and show… and you won’t need the aid of a magic lamp to guide you through.
Understanding Disney’s Aladdin
As mentioned above, Aladdin was the first entry in the series and this should be your starting point. The movie introduced all of the key characters, and told the story of a young boy who is granted three wishes by a genie.
Aladdin was then followed by a direct-to-video sequel, in the shape of The Return of Jafar. This movie picked up the story a short while after Aladdin had concluded, and saw the Agrabah gang square-off against an old foe.
After two movies, the story was then continued through an animated television show. The series – simply titled, Aladdin – ran for three seasons, comprising 86 episodes, and expanded the mythology even further, introducing a collection of new characters (and villains).
When the show came to an end, Aladdin’s story was not quite over, and continued through one more movie. This final movie was Aladdin and the King of Thieves, which rounded everything off quite neatly.
OK, so that was a brief explanation of the Aladdin movie/TV series, now for an easy-to-follow list for that all-important viewing order…
