It's been nearly 25 years since Aladdin hit theaters, and to celebrate, Disney is releasing a Diamond Edition Blu-Ray on Oct. 13 of the game-changing animated feature that includes exclusive, never-before-seen footage of the late Robin Williams recording the voice for the movie's iconic Genie.
A whole new generation will now be able to experience a "whole new world" of animation and Williams' comedic genius as one of Disney's most memorable characters. The archived footage shows Williams in the recording booth bringing the Genie to life with his improvisational skills and impressions, many of which didn't make the final cut.
John Musker, the film's writer and director, told Good Morning America on Friday that Williams was actually the inspiration for the Genie and was "bigger than life."
"Yeah, we wrote the part with Robin in mind," Musker said. "We didn't know if he would do it. And fortunately for us, he did. We were totally walking down the plank. If he said no, we were going to be in big trouble because the whole concept was built around Robin."
Eric Goldberg, the supervising animator of the Genie added, "Aside from him being funny as anything, he was such a warm person."
