A lot of us don't really believe in cosmic connections or talking to our loved ones beyond the grave, but sometimes something happens that is too big of a coincidence to go unnoticed.

While playing around with a new Disney character filter app, Zelda Williams' match was so perfect, fans couldn't help but make the connection and take comfort in it.


In the new third-party app, a gold frame with a lot of the same flare as the hand mirror from The Beauty and the Beast, appears above the user's head. When they click on it, it cycles quickly through a series of images and selects a random Disney character pairing for the user.

There have been a few hilarious mishaps with the app, including Josh Gad, who was expecting to be paired with Olaf from Frozen and Frozen II but was instead paired with Dory from Finding Nemo.

But in Zelda Williams' case, her pairing couldn't have been more perfect.

Williams shared a quick, five-second video on Twitter, showing her start the app and be matched with none other than the Genie, one of her father's most iconic roles, from the original Aladdin in 1992.

Her reaction was wholesome, with a smile that reminded her fans of Robin Williams and a quick laugh that's sure to put a smile on anyone's face.

You can watch the video here:

Of course, reactions have been pouring in from everywhere, but especially Twitter.

Some are experiencing all the feels at being reminded of the one and only Robin Williams.




Others believe it must be some kind of sign from beyond the beyond, and most certainly some kind of dad joke coming from the great genie himself.




And fans are loving the obvious resemblance between Zelda Williams and her father when she laughs, more than anything else.




Though it was just a quick, five-second video, and though there will be another trending app any day now to replace this random Disney character pairing one, this was a special moment in time for Zelda Williams and Robin Williams fans everywhere.

If nothing else, it reminds the entire community how they continue to not be alone in their missing of the great actor, and it pushes us all a little bit harder to do well by his legacy.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
