At the end of Disney's Aladdin, Aladdin frees Genie with his last wish, and the cuffs, that are presumably keeping Genie imprisoned, vanish.
These cuffs are still not present when Genie leaves to see the world.
When Genie returns in Return of Jafar, the cuffs are back.
They are also present in the second sequel The King of Thieves and in the TV series too.
As far as I am aware, Genie is a free Genie in all these subsequent appearances.
Is there any reason for Genie still wearing cuffs after he has been freed by Aladdin?
