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.

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.
