WATCH: New Aladdin out-takes show genius of the late Robin Williams

October 11th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Now that Robin Williams is sadly no longer with us, we treasure anything that comes out about the late, great comic. Now, with the 25th anniversary edition of Aladdin set to be released, we have been treated to a special, never-before-seen series of outtakes from Williams’ legendary performance as the genie in Aladdin.

The clip, originally aired on Friday morning by Good Morning America, shows the comedian at his brilliant best, improvising with sound effects and everything.

GMA’s George Stephanopoulos also caught up with cast and crew members of the 1992 film, including co-director and co-writer Ron Clements, who recalled Williams’ tireless work ethic while portraying Genie.

“He worked so hard,” Clements said. “We recorded him in four-hour sessions, and he would be going four hours straight. … By the end he was just drenched. He had so much energy and so much passion.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
