As the outpouring of remembrances for Robin Williams continues, the late actor’s old friends at the Walt Disney Company have added their own tribute to the mix.
Disney released their tribute on Twitter, depicting Williams’ iconic “Aladdin” character, Genie, looking down upon his lamp from his new home among the stars.
“We’re deeply saddened by the loss of Robin Williams, a wonderfully gifted man who touched our hearts and never failed to make us laugh,” said Disney’s Robert Iger in a statement attached to the painting. “An incredible actor and a comedic genius, Robin will always be remembered for bringing some of the world’s favorite characters to life, from his zany alien on ABC’s Mork & Mindy to the irascible genie in Disney’s Aladdin.”
“He was a true Disney legend, a beloved member of our family, and he will be sorely missed,” he added. “We join Robin’s friends and fans everywhere in mourning, and offer our thoughts and condolences to his family during this difficult time.”
