On being dared to jump: “Oh you want to challenge me, I’m from Philly son.” (Will also revealed that he purposely did not do any test jumps to create more authentic content!)

On the new Aladdin, in which he plays the Genie: “[It has] singing, dancing, special effects, action, comedy.. it has everything.”

On being authentic and fearless in the digital age: “[Avoid looking at] the numbers. Nothing is more valuable than your gut. Anything that is great, anything you love or you think is amazing in your childhood, someone once said it wouldn’t work…Fear is so constricting. It even constricts your thinking. Confront fear to maintain creativity.”
