However, he's not the only Aladdin-related tribute coming in.
The chairman and CEO of Disney, Robert A. Iger, released a remarkable statement about Robin's influence on the world.
'We’re deeply saddened by the loss of Robin Williams, a wonderfully gifted man who touched our hearts and never failed to make us laugh. An incredible actor and a 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 & Mindy to the irascible genie in Disney’s Aladdin.
He was a true Disney Legend, a beloved member of our 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 difficult time.'
Ugh, where are our tissues?? We've got to wipe our eyes from that…
