    Agnatic means only males inherit. Doesn't necessarily meant eldest male in the Sultan's dynasty. I didn't do research but the way it was worded here in the video I guess it's something like an Agnatic Seniority.

    This video is pointless. Just say “I wish to know the wish that would guarantee Jasmine’s hand in marriage.” Once you know the wish, just use it as your second wish. Use the last wish to wish for more genies. Easy.

    no no no no stop right here, Ottoman what ?? NO, it's more ancient than a city or a sultanate would be in the ottoman empire. First guess is the best guess, the clothes and the buildings give me the idea of the sultanate of Delhi, however with sands and songs about Jordan river and Arabian nights and stuff, I would say it's the time of the Seljuk empire and the decline of the Abbasid Caliphate, the time before the first crusade, small Arabic city states appeared in the levant and independent sultans would break from the Caliphate.

    nope, wrong Mat. he should wish for the law to be changed so the princess could marry whomever she wants, disallowing even her father to be able to choose for her. that's literally all it takes. phrase it so that Genie makes it like its always been like that (so nobody knows the difference), because the movie establishes that Jasmine hasn't liked ANY of the past suitors.

    Jasmine should NOT be sultan/a because SHE DOESN'T KNOW HOW MONEY WORKS! Both in the animated movie and the live action she is just baffled as to why the merchant expects money from her when she takes his goods and gives it to a starving child.
