Aladdin sequel set

Published on .

Walt Disney Co.'s home video unit, Buena Vista Home Video, is putting together a $70 million marketing push behind the second and last direct-to-video sequel to its 1992 animated feature "Aladdin." "Aladdin & the King of Thieves" will be supported with significant promotions and advertising from General Mills and McDonald's Corp. This "Aladdin" sequel marks Robin Williams' return (his voice, at least) to the role of the genie, which he voiced in the original film. The video hits retail in late summer.
