Dread the Evil Genie is a minor antagonist character from the Disney Junior animated series, in Jake and the Never Land Pirates. He is a wicked genie who drains other genies of all their magic power so that he can boost his own. He is voiced by David Tennant.



Dread is an evil, power-hungry genie. He is the devourer of countless other genies magic, and quite feared by other genies as revealed by Pip the Pirate Genie. He is quite open and accepting about his own cruelty, and prides himself on his ruthlessness.

Powers and Abilities[]

Because Dread consumes magic from other genies, he possesses unimaginable magical power, dwarfing even that of Pip the Pirate Genie. He displays the power to detect other genies by their magical energy, and absorbing their magic by using his magic bottle. Dread's only known weakness is being without his magic bottle his power begins to fade, leaving him weak.

By the time of Dread's reappearance in the episode "Dread the Pharaoh!", after being freed from his damaged bottle, Dread has lost all of his magical powers and now longs to gain magic once more.
