Robin Williams' daughter Zelda posted a GIF on Saturday, the actual day of the anniversary, of her father's character, Genie, having silly fun with Aladdin.

"Genie turned 25 yesterday. Little brother turns 26 today. Life is full of reminders that time passes so very fast," she wrote. "Now, excuse me while I go reenact this with my baby brother’s face."

Scott Weigner, who voiced the titular character, also posted on Twitter, tagging and writing to his co-star, "Hey Princess @MissLindaLarkin can you believe #Aladdin was released 25 years ago today? I’d lie to you about being a prince just to fly you around the world on a Magic Carpet all over again."

Lea Salonga, the voice behind some of Jasmine's songs, added her own thoughts on the anniversary.
