This Genie character is hilarious and not only his Frozen references both his whole appearance is belly shaking. Respect for the other actors, especially the one who plays Jafar, that can keep a straight face. I wonder if he’s ad-lipping or it’s in the script.
Andreas Deja posted a series clean up sheets of Jafar. Drawn by lead clean up artistÂ Kathy Bailey and her team Andreas was not sure his how “nice calligraphic line” from the rough drawings would turnout in the clean up phase of the character.
Andreas Deja posted a clip of his work animating Jafar in various stages, from simple lines, to complete inbetween final animation. He was has even bits of animation that didn’t make it to the final film. Like when Jafar says “Rasoul Azadani” to access the cave of wonders a reference to the layout supervisor of Aladdin and the classic “simsalabim”. In Aladdin and The King of Thieves Cassim says “Sesame Open” to enter his lair.
