The Magic Mirror is a minor character and object featured in the Disney Junior animated series, Jake and the Never Land Pirates. He is a magical mirror that once belonged to the wicked Sea Witch. He is voiced by Corey Burton.
Not much is known about the mirror, except that his sole purpose is to serve whoever may own him at the time. While he served evil on many occasions, he is not entirely evil, yet he is forced to obey as he is a slave. He does not hesitate to tell the truth to Captain Hook, when it is revealed that Jake and his crew are considered the bravest in Never Land.
Role in the Series
The Magic mirror first appeared in the episode "Witch Hook". Captain Hook and his crew were on their way back to the Jolly Roger when a magic treasure chest bumps into Bones, but on the closer exception of the chest, Mr. Smee sees it bears the symbol of evil the Sea Witch, but Hook does not listen to Smee's warning and decides to claim whatever treasure the chest may hold for himself. But once Hook opens the chest, he was disappointed to see a worthless mirror, but the mirror soon springs to life, revealing the answer to Hook's question and stating it only speaks the truth. Hook asks the mirror who is the bravest pirate in Never Land, to which the mirror informs Hook that Jake is the bravest in never Land, much to Hook's fury, wishing he could prove that he is truly the bravest. The mirror hears Hook's plea and knew of a spell that can make Hook's wish come true, but it turns the captain into a witch. At first, Hook was furious of having been tricked by the mirror, but the mirror assures Hook he now has great power at his command. Hook is soon delighted at his newfound power, and creates a flying broom for himself as he commands the rest of his crew to continue with his plot.
On Shipwreck Beach, Jake his crew were playing hide-and-go-seek when they overhear Captain Hook calling for help. Jake quickly rushes to the captain's aid, but only to be confronted by Hook as a witch, who transforms Jake into a coward with a magic spell. With Jake a helpless coward, Hook soon leaves to gloat. Izzy suggests they journey to Misty the Wonderful Witch's cottage to find a cure, but Hook's magic proves too powerful for Misty to revert by her hands. However, Misty knew that if anything could restore Jake's courage, it would be the magical waters of Washaway Falls. As Jake and his crew set off to Washaway Falls, Hook was spying on them using the mirror. Hook asks the mirror once more who the bravest pirate, but it informs him that Cubby is the braver pirate, fueling Hook's fury. He then plans to fix that by attacking the young pirates as they cross a bridge above a lake of lava. Cubby finds himself dangling over the edge. Jake wishes he could help, but Hook's spell prevents him from leaping into action. Izzy quickly helps Cubby using a jungle vine to lift him up. With Cubby safe, the young pirates continue to Washaway Falls. Hook soon asks the mirror once more who is the bravest pirate, but again the mirror informs him another pirate is braver than him, this time it was Izzy. Hook confronts Jake and his crew once more on the path to the falls, using his magic to teleport Izzy's pixie dust pouch out of her grasp and confines Izzy, Cubby and Skully in a wooden cadge sliding out of control.
Jake soon muscles up enough courage to retrieve the pixie dust, and using a large palm leaf to slide after his crew, he saves his mateys as they land at Washaway Falls. Hook curses at Jake's thwarting his scheme as Jake washes Hook's spell, restoring his courage. Hook tries to stop Jake, but the young pirate splashes the captain with the magical waters, returning Hook back into his normal self and taking the magic mirror away. Jake suggests taking the mirror to Misty before returning to Pirate Island.
