It’s one thing to marvel at Robin Williams’ performances on-screen, when they’re completely finished and polished. It’s another to see the great performer behind the scenes.

In this clip, fans of Williams can see him working tirelessly to perfect the character of the Genie in “Aladdin.”

Even though it was just a voice performance, Robin gave it his all. The clip shows him jumping around the recording booth, gesticulating wildly.

You can tell he had an amazing time bringing this character to life, which certainly translated into the final picture.

Seeing a master work on his craft with such passion really is a treat. It’s a shame that he will no longer produce these iconic performances. At least we can always revisit “Aladdin.”

The segment involving Williams begins around the 6:30 mark so make sure to start the video there. Enjoy!

Adorable Little Girl Wakes Up Dancing To Ed Sheeran’s ‘Don’t’ (Video)

Children’s music is horrendously painful to listen to, and my heart seriously goes out to any parent who’s forced to sit through hours of baby-voiced “musicians” singing about wheels on busses and crap like that. The thing is, it’s not even totally clear if babies enjoy that obnoxious children’s music; they hardly react. Baby Maisie, […]
