With the recent release of Aladdin Diamond Edition, many cast and crew members of the movie appeared on Good Morning America to talk about how the film impacted their lives.

During the show, Brad Kane and Lea Salonga performed "A Whole New World" live. In the film, Brad portrayed the singing voice of Aladdin; Lea, the singing voice of Jasmine. Accompanying them was Alan Menken, who wrote the music for the movie.

Simply breathtaking, right? I absolutely love imagining that Aladdin and Jasmine are still singing this maybe a few decades after the film takes place, just based on how Brad and Lea's voices have matured.

But perhaps the best part of the whole show was the brief glimpse of the outtakes from Robin Williams' voice recording sessions for the Genie. Robin's absence isn't overlooked, with people around the world still honoring one of comedy's funniest men after his suicide last year.
