Will Smith is going to be the ‘Genie’ that generations to come will remember. However, those who grew up watching Disney’s 1992 Aladdin will fondly recall the larger-than-life character being embodied by the late Robin Williams.
Following the release of the live-action reboot’s trailer and poster, the actor has paid tribute to the original, irreplaceable ‘Genie’ with a nostalgic illustration by Disney character designer Luigi Lucarelli.
The artwork, drawn in the nostalgic style of the 1992 animation, sees both versions of ‘Genie’ getting chummy with each other.
“I know ‘Genies’ don’t have feet, but you left some big shoes to fill,” Smith writes. “RIP, Robin! And thank you, Luigi [Lucarelli]! Love the artwork!”
They ain’t never had a friend like each other, but it’s clear to see that the two actors would have enjoyed the other’s company.
