Character Bio

Genie photo
The Genie (Arabic: الجني‎) is a jinni and is never given a proper name. He was portrayed by 'Robin Williams' in the first film. Following a contract dispute between Williams and the Walt Disney Company, 'Dan Castellaneta' voiced the Genie throughout the direct-to-video feature The Return of Jafar, as well as the television series, before Williams reprised the role for the final installment, Aladdin and the King of Thieves, as well as for the character's own mini-series, Great Minds Think for Themselves.

Castellaneta voiced the Genie in the Kingdom Hearts series of video games by Square Enix and Disney Interactive Studios.

'Jim Meskimen' took over the role in Disney Think Fast (2008) and Kinect Disneyland Adventures (2011).

Clements and Musker wrote the part of the Genie for Williams, and, when met with resistance, created a reel of Williams' stand-up to animation of the Genie. When Williams watched the video, he "laughed his ass off" and agreed to do the project. The Genie's supervising animator was Eric Goldberg.

Williams' appearance in Aladdin (despite his appearance along with 'Christian Slater' and 'Tim Curry' in the early 1992 animated film, Fern Gully) marks the beginning of a transition in animated film to "celebrity" voice actors, rather than specifically trained voice actors in animated film.
