More wishes and more commands! The new re-release of Disney's Aladdin includes never-before-seen clips and outtakes from the beloved 1992 animated movie, which famously featured the late Robin Williams as the voice of the beloved Genie.
The new Diamond Edition Blu-ray set will include the special footage of Williams, who died from suicide last August at age 63. The Aladdin team stopped by Good Morning America on Friday, Oct. 9, to share the news and remember the late comedian.

Supervising animator Eric Goldberg told GMA that Williams was just as dynamic as the character he voiced. “Aside from him being funny as anything, he was such a warm person," he recalled of the Flubber star.
Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who penned the movie's hit, "A Whole New World," equally enjoyed spending time with the late comic. "It was amazing working with Robin, absolutely incredible," he said on Friday.
"He was the Genie," added Aladdin's co-director and screenplay writer John Musker. "He was bigger than life."
Musker's fellow co-director and writer Ron Clements also remembered Williams' talent and passion for his job. "Nobody else could be the Genie. We recorded him in four-hour sessions and he would be going for four hours straight," he gushed. "By the end, he was just drenched in sweat. He had so much energy and so much passion."
