'Aladdin' - Will as Genie

Recommended Posts

Ok so I did some snooping/stalking whatever you wanna call it on Mena Massoods instagram (Aladdin). He made a video saying he and Will were working on “Friend like me”. For those not familiar with Aladdin, the Genie sings that.

 

So it looks like Will has a musical number in this. Who knows if they stick to original lyrics or change it up but I can’t help but be excited.

Whenever you're doing things that are iconic, it's always terrifying. The question is always: Where was there meat left on the bone? Robin didn't leave a lot of meat on the bone with the character... I started to feel confident that I could deliver something that was an homage to Robin Williams but was musically different Just the flavor of the character would be different enough and unique enough that it would be in a different lane, versus trying to compete... I think it'll stand out as unique even in the Disney world. There hasn't been a lot of that hip-hop flavor in Disney history."
