Iago is a character from the film Aladdin.

History[]

Iago was a parrot who served as the pet and henchman of the sorcerer Jafar, the grand-vizier of Agrabah's sultan. The two schemed to take over the kingdom by claiming the Genie of the Lamp and later by attempting to have Jafar marry the sultan's daughter Jasmine. Their plans were thwarted however by the heroic thief Aladdin who tricked Jafar into using the lamp to wish to become a genie himself, resulting in Iago and Jafar being trapped within their own lamp which was subsequently sent to the Cave of Wonders.
