Robin Williams' 1-Year-Old Grandson Is Learning About The Late Actor By Watching 'Aladdin'

The list of iconic Robin Williams characters could fill this entire article. The actor was known for his feel-good family comedies, as well as a host of animated roles that shaped childhoods for kids all around the world.

Now, Robin's oldest son, 37-year-old Zak Williams is talking to People how he is introducing his 1-year-old son to his late father through one of the actor's most beloved roles.

"His mom [Olivia June] and I have certainly considered how we want to introduce my son's grandfather, my dad, into his life," Zak explained.


"Certainly through his movies and the cartoons that he participated in is a great way."

"My son, Mickey, points at a cel that we have in his room of my dad that has the genie from *Aladdin.*"

"He's got a collection of photos and animation cels throughout our home that he sees on a daily basis."

"I think it's being mindful and introducing the elements and stories about him slowly."


He continued: "We hope that we can celebrate the positive elements and his works and films in a way that there can be appreciation and acknowledgment of him both as an entertainer, but also as a family man, and parent and grandfather to my son.

"So, the key thing would be for us to introduce it slowly and meaningfully. Taking an opportunity to share stories and his values in a way that we hope can be appreciated and embodied."
