Retelling the story of Aladdin (Jeff Blim) from Ja’far’s (Dylan Saunders) point of view, it’s clear the Ja’far was hardly the villain in the story. Ja’far fought for what he thought was right and when working for a government who wouldn’t hear him out, he devised his own plan.
Following the Disney plot well, the show gives a new look at the demoralized Aladdin and the shallow Jasmine (Rachael Soglin), while giving you a soft spot for Ja’far.
The best parts of the show are Jim Povolo as the straightforward Captain who blames everything on Ja’far and “Twisted” in which many Disney villains agree that they’re misunderstood.
Final say: A parody well worth it. ★★★★☆
