He tweets, “Farewell to my childhood hero and my Genie. The world won’t be the same without him.”

And composer Alan Menken, who worked on the Oscar-nominated Aladdin tune “Friend Like Me” with Williams, has issued a statement to, which reads:

“If I had only watched Robin Williams on the TV screen, in the movies or on stage, I would consider myself blessed for having simply experienced his brilliance, his joy, his humor and his heart.

“The fact that I had the honor of sharing the creative process with him is an honor and a privilege that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”

The Academy also remembered Williams with a tear-jerking Aladdin tribute:
