Are animations made better by not using "established" acting talent? I think I like more animated films these days than I did from the 1970s/1980s. Good actors tend to be in good films. If you have the skill and professionalism necessary to carry a starring role in a Disney film I think there's a solid chance you've already got an established career in entertainment.

@Compucles I disagree. The movies I was thinking of when I wrote that comment did not include Pixar's movies. I probably should have said "except Pixar, in my opinion animated movies don't really challenge you anymore like they used to when I was a kid, pre-Shrek."

@dapperfan44 Personally, I think those two movies are just as touching as "The Lion King" or "Bambi." Good drama isn't solely limited to the sudden death of a loved one (although, "Moana" also has that as well). Meanwhile, "Tangled" and "Frozen" are musicals on par with the ones Disney released in '89 and the early 90's, while "The Princess and the Frog" isn't that far behind. Anyway, you were the one who suggested what "modern animation is today," so of course you can't discount any modern animation studios when trying to make that argument.

Really don't understand why its an issue to use actors who have repeatedly proved themselves to be hilarious to ensure the quality of an animation film... & celebrities have been used to advertise big movies since the beginning of film. There are some people who we just love to watch, & for very good reason.

I loved Robin, and I don't give a fuck about celebrities. I was fortunate enough to meet him in Afghanistan where he performed for us poor, dirty, tired, lonely bastards free of charge because he believed in us too. It just so happened I got to eat breakfast with him the next day as I was on "KP" duty at the 'fancy' mess hall the next morning. I spoke with him briefly and regret not telling him his impact to me and countless others, though I know it would be hubris to think someone random person in a short encounter could make him stay here longer.

Robin Williams was being kind of a dick here imo, I mean he knew how the industry works, and they mostly stuck to the agreement. It's kind of diva-ish behaviour, like doing a Simpsons episode and asking them not to show it on fox or something. His claims to moral superiority might ring truer if he wasn't a notorious joke thief.

I am happy that I have watched all Disney movies until my 20s, dubbed over in Polish, so a lot of jokes from the pop culture where missing, they were mostly original and I nobody cared what actors where doing the voices, because they had different voices :D And actually, the funny thing is that even when they would have A-list Polish actors doing some voice, only a few people found out about it years after they have seen the movie and it was like "whaaat? that's his voice?!"

I think the voice actors should be the people that wouldn't get movie roles otherwise. I loved Robin in Aladdin but I don't watch animated movies to recognize who plays a character's voice. That being said, some of these actors did a great job in their roles. I don't know if the characters would be the same with another voice actors.

I’m sorry you’re so butt hurt over casting. It is your opinion and I respect that, however I disagree that bankable talent is a detriment to the final product.

In Sweden, we were luckily blessed from the mass usage of celebrity voices, at least during the 90s and early 00s. Voice acting was instead done by professional voice actors or lesser known actors/singers that fit the part. Robin Williams did a really great genie. I would recommend you to check out the swedish genie (by Dan Ekborg). I might be slightly biased, but I really think he is at least just as brilliant as Williams. You can have a look here: /watch?v=aOK5SuoBVUY

You censored your own usages of the "f" word but left Robin's uncensored. Does that make any sense?

@9:49 I'm confused about the alleged violations on the poster and the BK commercial. Williams didn't want his name or voice used. Neither of them appear here. It would be ridiculous for Williams to ask them to not use visuals of a main character in their marketing, and as far as we know he didn't make that request anyway. What am I missing here?

Great video! But to concentrate on the issue of the vid: Robin said, "Don't use my VOICE" in none of the merch examples did I hear his VOICE. In all the examples provided in this vid, I saw the Genie's IMAGE. No VOICE. We can't expect Disney not to use the image of one of their own drawn characters. Can we? Disney may have violated the spirit of the agreement that RW thought he bargained for- but I don't see anything egregious about using an IMAGE of a blue genie from their own movie. (P.S. I love Robin Williams)
