Aladdin was not the genie’s first master. It’s unlikely that the movie shows the first time that he suggested that a master set him free. He must have had a previous master who refused. This master is never mentioned anywhere, but Andrew Bridgman and Paul Westover of Dorkly have inferred that he must exist. He’s one of 5 Disney characters that necessarily exist, including the clam that forms Ariel’s bra and the fashion expert who suggested that Cruella de Vil get a dog-skin coat.
