Robin Williams played a lot of roles, one of the most memorable being the Genie from "Aladdin"— one of Disney's most classic animations.

Now, Disney has released footage and never-before-seen stills of the late Williams in this iconic role from the 1992 film, which will be released on Blu-ray on October 13.
