About Genie

Genie is the big blue guy who is forced to grant three wishes to anyone and everyone in the Disney film Aladdin. When he met the street orphan Aladdin, he had no idea that he would be meeting his new best friend. Aladdin wished for two wishes and then granted Genie’s freedom for his final wish! Genie’s new freedom allowed him to venture out into the world and experience everything he could never do. He was no longer trapped in that tiny lamp like he had been for thousands of years before.

Genie wasn’t only known for granting wishes for strangers; he also showed how loyal and brave he could be when he helped Aladdin take down the Grand Vizier of Agrabah, Jafar. Genie may have acted scared at times, but he never left Aladdin’s side. We all know it wasn’t because he was stuck with him until he granted those three wishes for Aladdin. Genie taught us the loyalty of a best friend and that everything you do for other people will come back to you one day!
