The world is mourning the loss of Robin Williams, who Disney fans know him most famous for his role as the Genie in "Aladdin". He also starred as Phillip Brainnard in Disney's Flubber in 1997. He also became a member of the Disney Legends in 2009, for his excellence in Film and Animation (Voice). Here's a "Friend Like Me" where he featured his talents of voice acting singing which is still the inspiration character in the Broadway show and in the stage show in Disney California Adventure.

Bob Iger, CEO of the Walt Disney Company, issued this statement: "We're deeply saddened by the loss of Robin Williams, a wonderfully gifted man who touched out hears and never failed to make us laugh. An incredible actor and 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 and Mindy to the irascible genie in Disney's Aladdin. He was a true Disney Legend, a beloved member of the family, and he will be sorely missed. We join Robin's friends and fans everywhere in mourning, and offer our thoughts and condolences to his family during this time." (Source: ABC News).

RIP Mr. Robin Williams. πŸ’• I was first introduced to Robin Williams as Popeye and Mork, and grew to love him even more over the years. He was not only a clever and funny man, but a gifted actor and I loved his ability to play such a diverse array of characters. My heart goes out to his family and friends; the world ha indeed suffered a great loss, but I'm so thankful his talent will continue to entertain and inspire. - MarathonMinnie  139.3 #2898 6:08PM
Just heartbroken over this news. I never missed one of his movies. He had so many wonderful movies that will allow his legacy to continue for future generations to see. The world lost a bit of funny today. There will never be another comedian like him. Prayers for his family. - Sugarbuzz  242.6 #1449 6:26PM
Couldn't have said it better myself. I immediately thought Mrs Doubtfire, Hook, Flubber, Jack, Jumanji, Patch Adams and of course Aladdin. Those movies were such a huge part of my childhood. - ThinkTink23  46.9 #4915 6:45PM

BFCM that must have been a SHOW!!!  I have seen film if some of those shows for our servicemen and women. He did so many of those shows and always spent time later with the audience one on one.  - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 7:36PM

I will always remember him for the part in Aladdin where he goes over the rules of the genie.'Rule #1 I can't make anyone fall in love. Rule #2 I can't kill anybody. Rule #3 I can't raise anybody from the dead......it's not a pretty picture.....so don't ask!....otherwise you got it!' - Donaldfan_532  247.3 #1391 8:59PM

I've never really understood why some would be so sad when someone they didn't personally know passed. . I get it now :( this is very unfortunate but I am lucky to have seen his talent & shared laughs with others bc of him.  He will be missed . He will be remembered.  Thanks for the laughs, Mr. Williams.  RIP - luvMickey  583.6 #347 10:18PM

Does anyone find it odd/weird that this morning's "Get Happier" promotion was a chance for VIP seats for Aladdin, just a few hours before this happened?  - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 11:32PM
I work in the Sales and Marketing department for a large company and I know it takes a lot of preparation. If Disney changed their scheduled promotion in a few hours that would be quite a feat.  - Boundin  712.2 #272 11:54PM
I'm not saying Disney can't do something like this, but if they could I am super impresses. I think it was a coinsedance. - Boundin  712.2 #272 12:16AM
Unfortunately I think this is a very odd coincidence! - ThinkTink23  46.9 #4915 12:23AM
If you are correct and they changed their plans, I am hoping that they did it out of respect and not capitalizing on events.  - Boundin  712.2 #272 12:49AM
I think what BBMCM was trying to say is that today was the day  special tickets for Aladdin for the get happier Mondays just happened to be the promotion, and what a tragic coincidence it was since today was the day he passed. They did not have time to do a tribute at theAladdin    show either.  I hope they do one though.  - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 1:05AM
Rip πŸ˜ŸπŸ˜” and yes.. the genie is free.. - Kac527  25.6 #6456 11:48PM
I'm so sad about this. I spent all day hoping it wasn't true.  - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  531.4 #391 2:16AM
Such a loss for the world! - drskookie  378.9 #593 3:22AM
Such a tragedy. Genie will always be remembered as one of his best.  - marisadel  12.1 #9776 3:32AM
