And it’s a role that is so complex because it requires singing and dancing, high expectations, it requires comedy, it requires drama. It really requires kind of the full skill set of an actor, and he pulled it off. And how he did that was he made it really personal. I think that’s the number one overarching theme that everyone brought the movie. They they made this movie by bringing their personality to it.”

No different actor may have accomplished this the way in which he did, in the identical manner no different actor may have accomplished the genie the way in which Robin Williams did. They are so iconic and so the way in which Will interpreted the Genie was to make an iconic character that solely he can play that may be very true to himself. And that is what actually excited us and allowed us to distinguish and stand out from the earlier Aladdin film.”
