Then there’s the radio play re-tel of the movie released in a number of languages in many countries on various media like CD, cassette and I even came across an LP version one day. The play is from Austria in German and has pretty cover art marketing the kind princess and dashing hero.
Strolling off Ebay I came across this rare Aladdin spinoff radio play in German. It’s callled JAGOS RÃœCKKEHR and seems to be starring Iago. Although I’m not able to translate the title my gut tells me it’s like Return of Jafar, Iago switches sides from evil henchman to good sidekick.
It’s released on a music casssete or MC which was what MP3 is today a way to have portable music back in the 80’s. The walkman is like the Ipod of the 80’s.
