Fellow Aladdin co-stars Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott later joined Will Smith. He spoke about stepping into Robin Williams‘ iconic Genie character—and how he relied on his own Fresh Prince of Bel-Air experience to make it his own. He explained:

“The music is where I found my in to the Genie.”

“‘A Friend Like Me’ was the first song that I messed with in the studio and then I found that hip hop flavor.”

“I was like, ‘Oh, I can just use my Fresh Prince persona and use that ’cause the Genie’s been forward and back in time, so he can pull references from anywhere.”

“So I mirrored that. The hip hop in was where I saw I could put my own signature while maintaining the nostalgic value.”
