Perhaps he knows about the third century because he is an all-knowing genie.
@heavenly potato, Perhaps you're a heavenly potato
@heavenly potato, phenomenal cosmic power, he makes jokes about the future and past
@heavenly potato, somebody cpuld hace wished to live in the future ir see the future as well
@heavenly potato, and being trapped does not mean he cant see out. Why would he only do ones of the 19th century. Was this our best comedic time in the next 8,000 years? Depressing.
There are more theories about this movie than 9/11.
@Devils Avocado, Bush did Aladdin.
@Devils Avocado, even the genie can't melt steel beams with jet fuel
@CriTiKa1, lol if you think Bush doing 9/11 is just a theory then boy do I have a story for you
@iplaybassoon , And if you think that bush doing aladdin is a joke, then you got another thing coming.
Guide to making a theory about children's cartoons:
Step 1. Say its post apocalyptic
Step 2. Find some tiny evidence
Step 3. ????
Step 4. Profit
Because it's a children's movie
He was probably using three Islamic calendar which current year is 1436. So it might have been 1700 years ago our even older. It is illogical to assume they were using the Gregorian calendar.
or he can see the world while he's inside of the lamp
Nah, cuz how could he have known any of those celebrities if he was locked up? BOOM, theory dismissed
He probably just knows all this because it's a movie
Umm.. because he's a genie
His Robin Williams impression was spot on too
Or he could be like Robert and Rosalind Lutece, and he lives outside of time and space.
If he was trapped for 10,000 years and knows Groucho marks and all them wouldn't it be more around 12,015?
Fallout 5 confirmed
If he could only have known that aladdins clothes were 3rd century because he was imprisoned after then, the he shouldn't be able to know how to make all those references. So either the year is actually 12,000AD, or this theory is bullshjt.
He makes constant references to the 'future' as well so maybe it is a post apocalyptic version of the very distant future?
If he was trapped in the lamp for 10000 years he wouldn't know about Groucho Marx or Jack Nicholson *eye twitches*
I am going to put your theory to shame and explain why you are wrong in three words: "PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWER!!!" which could very well include omniknowledge, thus he knows about everything that has or will happen.
Or somebody just didnt think of the discrepancy when they wrote it
The new fallout looks pretty good
Maybe he had a TV in his lamp!!!!
I feel like this theory contradicts itself. They say magic carpets and iago are technological advancements aka things considered magic but where does that leave genie and Jafar? Technological advancement?
@Just a doctor , *Armstrong voice* NANOMACHINES SON!
Or or or it was the genius and talent of Robin Williams....R.I.P. 😢
Or that the lamp is a place that exists out of time itself. How else could he quote all those funny movies?
It's a cartoon genie.
Have you heard of something called Cyberpunk? Magic in the future.
Mayhaps someone summoned the genie in the 3rd century
I thought this was going to be about Aladdin standing on the Genie's junk...
