2 Genie (Robin Williams) - Aladdin

Robin Williams at his best voicing the Genie from Aladdin who provides a lot of the laughs and heartwarming moments. there is only one Robin Williams and there will only be one Robin Williams. - egnomac

8 Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) - Forrest Gump

I love this. He's always protective, and loyal to people, but dead seriously, stupid.

Like Vito Corleone before him Hanibal was a supporting character who managed to steal the whole show thanks to Anthony Hopkins creepy portrayal. - egnomac

One of the best female Disney characters in history as a maiden who takes her father place in the army to not only save him but bring honor to her family while risking everything to do so. - egnomac
