Fan theory had been questioned since 1992
One of the most popular urban legends surrounding Disney’s Aladdin has finally been revealed as true, two decades after fans began speculating.
Directors Ron Clements and John Musker confirmed fans’ speculation the bazaar’s peddler – also voiced by Robin Williams – was in fact the Genie himself.
“That was the whole intention, originally,” Clements told US news channel Entertainment! Online during a round of publicity to promote the release of the latest version of the Disney classic.
