While Robin Williams just lent his voice to the iconic Disney character of Genie in 1992's 'Aladdin,' according to the Instagram filter 'Which Disney Character Are You?', his daughter Zelda actually embodies the soul of the blue-colored shape-shifting entity that lives inside the magical lamp.

Zelda, 30, uploaded a clip on Twitter on December 31 of herself trying out the currently popular filter.

Initially, as the filter rolled through an array of popular Disney characters like Olaf, Maleficent, Ursula, Dory, and Aladdin before finally landing on Genie, her eyes grew wide in anticipation. As soon as the image of Genie sat frozen on her forehead, Zelda could not hold back her laughter as she cracked up. 

Her reaction to the result was hilarious because it was clear that she was not expecting the result and was taken aback by it. The short clip has since gone viral on social media, being viewed 1.8 million times, and garnering hundreds of comments.

"Dad's saying hi," wrote one, while another commented, "That's awesome. Divine intervention for that for sure." 

A third wrote, "This makes my heart jump for joy," while a fourth said, "Her reaction is priceless. You could still see the happiness there." 

The legendary actor who passed away in 2014 maintained during his life that his voice work for Genie in the Disney movie was one of his most beloved roles. To pay homage to his voice as Genie, Disney released a never-before-seen behind-the-scenes look of the 1992 cast in the recording booth -- following the 2019 Summer debut of the live-action movie of 'Aladdin' -- which included Robin Williams bringing the larger-than-life character who granted wishes, cracked jokes, to life. The clip also included voice-over clips from cast members like Jonathan Freeman as Jafar, Linda Larkin as Jasmine, Douglas Seale as Sultan, and Brad Kane as Aladdin.
