Fact #65

Robin Williams signed on to do Aladdin under the agreement that his voice was not to be used in any merchandising, and that his voice was not to account for more than 1/4 of ad time. Disney violated this agreement and Williams denied support for the movie.

Disney’s CEO tried to win him back by buying him a Picasso painting, but Williams returned the painting.

Subsequently, he did not appear in the second movie, being replaced by Dan Castelanetta.
