Iago is a parrot the secondary antagonist and former minion of Jafar in Disney's 1992 feature film Aladdin, as well as later the reformed supporting character in it's sequel. He is voiced by Gilbert Gottfried.


He is a greedy, irritable parrot who was once a minion to the villianous Jafar. However, in the direct-to-video sequel The Return of Jafar, he grows tired of Jafar, with Jafar constantly giving him orders like a henchman (hench-bird in this case), and leaves him to make it on his own. He soon becomes friends with Aladdin and the other heroes, but still remains somewhat greedy and irritable, which often leads him into trouble, much to his dismay. He always gets out of trouble, however, either with Aladdin's help or just pure luck. In said sequel, he helps the heroes destroy Jafar by destroying Jafar's own lamp.

In the Magic Kingdom attraction, The Enchanted Tiki Room – Under New Management, he is the new co-owner (the other being Ichy or Zazu of the Enchanted Tiki Room and plans to put in new, hipper acts, though he is thwarted, and severely injured by Uh-Oa the Tiki Goddess of Disaster, after insulting the Tiki gods). In most of his appearances he is voiced by Gilbert Gottfried.

He one time stopped Malcho, the giant winged serpent.
