From the OUAT Fan Podcast Deputy Desk:
In Disney’s Aladdin, Jafar tries to use Genie’s powers to take over Agrabah, first wishing to become the sultan, and then the most powerful sorcerer in the world. After battling Aladdin with his questionable sense of humor, Jafar transforms himself into a giant cobra in an attempt to kill Aladdin, but just as Jafar is squeezing him to death, Aladdin tricks Jafar into using his third and final wish to become an all-powerful genie himself and the strongest entity in the Disney universe. In Western culture, genies are almost always portrayed as being confined to small oil lamps until they are released to do a human’s bidding; Jafar is therefore trapped by his own selfish wish for power.
In Fruit Of The Poisonous Tree we see Regina’s Father bringing the box to the Genie so he can bring it to Regina and this would ‘set her free’
This was the Viper of Agrabah the most venomous snake of all the lands
Did you realize this was a Disney reference from Aladdin?.
Aladdin tricked Jafar into using his third wish. Just like what Leopold had told Genie as he was slowly dying. “You should have used your wish”
Just like Jafar in Aladdin he was trapped by his own selfish wish for power.
As Genie used his wish to always be with Queen Regina for always. therefore for his own selfish wish for love, he was trapped in the mirror,wishes always come with a price.
