Does the Genie trick Aladdin with the third wish?

Well no. The Genie was freed. Therefore he had no more obligation to grant the wishes, regardless of whether Aladdin had any wishes left. If we are going to count the wishes though, the movie does ...

Did Genie actually grant any of Aladdin's wishes other than the one to set him free?

Aladdin already was a prince, even before he made the wish. From the third movie we know that Aladdin's dad is the king of thieves, which sort of makes him a prince. Of course you can still argue ...

Does the Genie trick Aladdin with the third wish?

After that, Genie explains that from then on, only valid wishes will be accepted and makes a big deal about it. "Valid" is not quite right. Aladdin does trick the Genie into freeing him from the Cave ...

Aladdin ending explanation?

Genies are given power in exchange for servitude. When Jafar wished for the powers like Genie, he got his wish. But it's exactly like the saying "be careful what you wish for, you might just get it". ...

Why does Genie rewear the cuffs?

Aesthetically, I like Genie with cuffs more than Genie without them. It also serves a visual purpose when we see Genie's dismembered hands doing things by themselves (which happens on several ...

Did Genie actually grant any of Aladdin's wishes other than the one to set him free?

Genie does grant the wish to make Aladdin a prince! The easiest counter argument is that without Jafar's involvement Aladdin would have stayed a prince. Jafar's magic counteracts Genie's when he "...

Why did touching Carpet not collapse the cave?

I don't know if there is a canonical answer here but for me, the implication is that they are not to touch any of the treasure. After all they were touching the ground by walking on it, so clearly "...

Why does Genie still have his powers after he was freed?

In popular culture, freed genies always retain their powers. In myth, Jinn are magical creatures, and their enslavement only limits when and why they can use their powers. In Disney, Genie isn't given ...

Why does Carpet act like he doesn't know Genie when they first meet?

This is Disney. It's a Children's movie, albeit enjoyed by adults. I think it would have been confusing to children to have Carpet know who Genie was, or for Carpet to act differently than the rest ...

Because they never touched it with their hands with the intention to take it like Abu did with the diamond/ruby shiny thing. They stood on it with their feet, which is basically what carpets are for ...
