While most of the time we see Genie as a highly charismatic comedy goldmine, we have also seen Genie to be a bit of a sneak from time to time. However, what most viewers don’t realize is that Genie might actually be more of a sinister liar than we think, who has more free will than he has led all of us to believe. And once you look at the facts, you may never look at this lovable character the same way again!

The Villain In Aladdin is not genie jafar’s the villain of Aladdin
It probably would have been too hard for them to basically fake being a king as long as a rich.... And claim to come from somewhere else...
So genie is interestingly much more of a djinn stereotype than you're led to believe as a kid
I think that Genie actually has free will in a way, as long as the wish gives him the opportunity.
Because what did Aladdin wish for? To be a prince. Well, that's not very precise. When did he want to become a prince? Right now? In a week? In a few years? What kind of prince does he want to be? Of a big kingdom or a small one? First-born or second-born? Do you really want the royal house to exist or do you just want to look like a prince? Etc. etc.
So it is the wish itself "Genie, make a prince out of me!" that gives Genie complete power over Aladdin here and gives him complete freedom of choice. So if Genie wasn't such a nice guy, he could have used the wish against Aladdin through the complete freedom of interpretation, just as Jaffar does in the second movie.
About the three rules: Genie does set rules for the wishes, but I think that if someone nevertheless wishes someone back from the dead, for example, he still have to obey. So he is merely pointing out that such wishes do not make one happy. Whether Genie's master then takes this into account or not is up to the person himself.
For example, when Jaffar wishes to be the most powerful wizard and then to be Genie himself, Genie does not want to grant the wishes, but does so anyway.
I think the only real rule that Genie is subject to is that everyone has only three wishes. Either because that is a cosmic rule and the number three is a magic number. Or Genie was once free and was banished to the lamp and "cursed" to be eternally bound to the bottle and to grant wishes to every owner of the lamp. The only way to escape is for the owner of the lamp to wish Genie free. And to prevent this, Genie has been given the rule that he can only use his powers to grant three wishes to arouse the owner's greed and selfishness.
I thieck gein was a good gie
If that is true, then why was Ginie helping Aladdin, explain that plus the Ginie was giving him really good advice about friendship and how to get a girlfriend the right way so you're theory doesn't work
Sooooo you never watched the live version of the movie?! If you did, you'd realize why most of your supporting evidence doesn't make sense.
Well if you've ever read stories about genies aka jinn (or djinn) you'd know they're tricksters. According to Britannica, "Jinn delight in punishing humans for any harm done them, intentionally or unintentionally, and are said to be responsible for many diseases and all kinds of accidents; however, those human beings knowing the proper magical procedure can exploit the jinn to their advantage."
1 of my favorite horror movie series is Wishmaster which is about an evil genie trying to take over the world along w/ his brethren! The 1st 2 star Andrew Divoff as the Djinn & the last 2 star John Novak as the Djinn.
I'm typically one for these types of videos...new theories and angles and all, but this whole video seemed like a stretch, except for the Genie being the peddler. 🤔
really? The black goatee? THE GUY HAS 4 FINGERS... there are dozens of other Agrabah denizens with a black goatee, but no other with a complete hand AND 4 fingers
This is narrated by a hired actor, right? Not by the person who wrote it.
Ugh. I wish you wouldn’t bring in the sequels. Not only are they awful, but the animation quality is so incredibly inferior it’s annoying to look at, especially when directly compared to the original. I wish we call could just agree that if it didn’t get a theatrical release (back before streaming and the pandemic) then it’s not canon. It’s just like crappy fan fiction.
i always thought Iago was the villain of the movie... he was the one who gave jafar the idea to marry jasmine and rule agrabah...
Genie is your run-of-the-mill, chaotic jinn trapped in a lamp for doing Too Much Nonsense. Our sweet Genie likely caused a huge mess while he was wild and free, and to teach him a lesson, a magician of some sort took him, tricked him, shackled him and stuck him in a lamp. Then turned around and put his lamp in the most dangerous cave they could make. No one would dare go in after seeing what happens to the first person to step foot in that mouth.
This is pretty important, because it shifts Genie's story a bit: He's not some helpless victim of circumstance, he's a chaotic being with too much power that was being punished for what he did. That said, genie could only be allowed to be found by someone with a good heart and good intentions, or else he'd simply be out and allowed to do more harm again.
So, yes, I think he fully intended to trick Aladdin. I think he would've pulled a Monkey's Paw on the kid if Genie felt he could.
Thing is, he can't.
But Aladdin can.
Aladdin can be vague, misleading, omit information and be indirect with what he wants an all powerful (but not all knowing) spirit to do for him.
Thus, the rules. Accepting the three wishes is a magical contract enforced by the jinn himself: You can have just about anything you want! But these are my restrictions. Aladdin accepted the restrictions happily, still managing to trick Genie into saving him and then referring back to the rules, specifying he didn't technically make a wish, just goaded the Genie into action.
So, no. I don't think Genie is actually capable of manipulating Aladdin as much as we think. And I think, specifically, it has to do with The Rules. Genie is bound to them too, after all.
Thus the rest of my theory:
Aladdin was already a prince. Genie gave him all the social status, riches and clothes associated with being a prince, but he didn't give Aladdin a country to rule or people to govern because... he already had those. Aladdin's father was a thief well before Aladdin was born and probably had the King of Thieves title well before the movie takes place. Land, citizens, a "throne" and law to oversee were already his, whether he knew it or not.
Furthermore, if Genie isn't all knowing, he definitely doesn't know about Aladdin's family enough to make them royal in any regionally recognizable sense. It would mean either killing someone or bringing someone back from the dead, which Genie has already put hard 'no's on. Any claim to a pre-established throne is out of his hands, and the qualifications of being a royal is literally wealth and influence, otherwise.
Genie working for Jafar... Can we. Just remember Genie is a magical servant? He doesn't have the ability to say no if Jafar tells him to do anything not restricted by The Rules. "He worked for Jafar" is like blaming someone for committing a crime when they had a gun to their head... which is very much the case, here, especially in the hands of another wizard/sorcerer. We need to remember, in no small terms, Genie is enslaved and has Very Little say in what happens to him or his powers.
Lastly, the peddler...
After everything that happened (being awoken after years, helping a kid get his dream girl and improve his life and being able to trust this kid to free him), he takes his vacation, travels the world maybe, and comes back. Why? He doesn't need money. He doesn't want fame after everything that endangered his life. And he probably doesn't want someone else thinking he needed to be locked away.
So he takes his lamp, which was his living space and connected to his life, gets a pet camel and rides around selling junk he knows people don't want just so he can have the chance to talk about the human who taught him he could do good with his magic. His first friend in a long, long time.
Can't say selling broken junk is good per say, but I think wanting to establish a legacy for his friend and the man who freed him is a good first step.
I would go with Grnie being something nore like Chaotic Neutral than really Evil in any way. He looks out for his own, and mostly does things his way, free will or no, and he knows more than a couple tricks to temporarily "untie his hands" like saving Aladdin by "assuming" his suggested wish was desired even though Al was not conscious enough to give true consent, using an otherwise disingenuous gesture. Interestingly enough, this act displays he was still constrained by some rules but like most genies knew how to divide the letter from the spirit of the phrase, and despite this gave Aladdin mostly correct interpretations of what he wanted, despite being the vaguest wishes one could give. Meanwhile when helping Jafar, the instructions were clear enough the constraint of his rules kept him from denying the wish while also he did the bare minimum needed to grant it. Interpretation was always a genie's wiggle room in their bondage, no different here.
You miss a telling point: the kingdom already has a useless, mentally-defective man-child as a ruler and a headstrong, irresponsible brat who will become the next ruler's wife--if any man can be found to reel her in! Jafar is probably the only one actually keeping the kingdom running. ...and now, thanks to the genie, you have a clueless, narcissistic egomanic lined up to rule the kingdom once daddy-dear kicks the bucket. What could possibly go wrong, now that the only person who actually knows anything about ruling is gone? If the genie was actually GOOD*, he would have acted to *save the kingdom, not utterly destroy it, which is pretty much the only possible outcome.
That's one of the worst theory that I ever saw.
Why do they keep calling him a Genie he's a Djin, not a Genie a genie is a female Djin
I think it’s safer to say that he’s neutral. Only doing things that benefit himself…
