Genie is the tritagonist of the 2019 feature film Aladdin, the live-action remake of the 1992 animated film of the same name.
He is portrayed by Will Smith, who also played Agent J in the Men in Black films, Steven Hiller in Independence Day, Mike Lowrey in the Bad Boys movie series and a fictionalized version of himself in TV's The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
While trapped inside the cave, Abu reveals that he stole the lamp back from Jafar. Aladdin notices the lamp is a bit dusty and gives it a rub. This causes the lamp to release a powerful Genie who can grant him three wishes, as long as he is holding the lamp. Aladdin wishes to escape from the cave (though he makes a wish without holding the lamp, keeping his three wishes in tact), and both he, Genie, Abu and Carpet find themselves in the middle of the desert. Genie instructed Aladdin on wishes that he can't do, he can't kill anyone, resurrect someone from dead or make anyone fall in love with anyone else. After seeing Genie's potential, Aladdin wishes to become a prince in the hopes that he can be with Princess Jasmine. Genie transforms him into Prince Ali, and parade to The Sultan's Palace, where the Sultan welcomes him.
While Aladdin and Jasmine are riding the magic carpet, Dalia and Genie go out for a stroll. After Jafar pushes Aladdin out of his tower and falls into the sea. Abu and Carpet arrive with the lamp, and Aladdin manages to rub it before drowning. Genie appears and rescues Aladdin, and after speaking with Jasmine they confront the Sultan of Jafar's treachery.

Genie was upset with him that he broke his promise. But Iago took the lamp, without Aladdin noticing it. Aladdin knew Genie was right and he was going to tell Jasmine the truth that he is a street rat. Iago took the lamp for Jafar and Genie is terrified of him. The Genie gives Jafar how two wishes, turning Jafar into both the new Sultan of Agrabah and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Aladdin notices the lamp was missing and went to the palace to retrieve from Jafar but it was too late. Jafar banished Aladdin and Abu to frozen wasteland. The Genie transport the magic carpet to find Aladdin and Abu to frozen wasterland to find them. The Magic Carpet found them and head back to Agrabah.
