This Genie's Magic Lamp was found by a mortal woman at a bazaar centuries in the past. The Genie subsequently fell in love with his mistress, who used one of her wishes to allow her beloved to become human and free, to marry her. Though he lost his magic powers in the process (with the Lamp becoming nothing more than an old trinket), the legend says the Genie continued to grant her every wish — as a loyal husband. Hundreds of years later, the Genie's distant descendant, Mr D'jinn, led Scrooge McDuck on an epic quest in an effort to regain the Lamp, the story of which the D'jinn line had dutifully chronicled over the centuries as it passed from hand to hand due to the persistent conception among evildoers that it still held some sort of magical power.
Behind the scenesEdit
The First Genie debuted in the upcoming 9th episode of Season 2 of DuckTales 2017, Treasure of the Found Lamp. He is loosely based on the Djinni seen in the original series, though much thinner (and kinder).
