Robin and the Genie

I apologize in advance that these last two posts are a tad somber, but I didn’t realize yesterday that today was the one-year anniversary of Robin William’s passing. In an effort to keep things on the up-and-up, I am sharing a video that I think is both extremely interesting and honorable for the actor who brought to life one of Disney’s most iconic characters; the Genie from Aladdin.

The video is from Nightline, and it is about how the animators convinced Williams to voice the wish-granting goofball. Start the video at 2:30 to skip the report on the details of his passing.

It’s a really sweet video with great behind-the-scenes shots. I’m smiling as I am writing this! Enjoy! 🙂

  1. I wrote a full-length tribute piece to him yesterday. Wonder if you have read it. Of course I mentioned his performance as the Genie quite a bit, but other works of his were featured as well.
