Hello, welcome to a virtual representation of my 23-year old fangirl brain. Convinced that I should have been born in the UK. I live for coffee, tea, billowing long coats, snow and puppies. Willing to sell soul for unlimited travel. Life has been ruined by Tumblr, Sherlock, Merlin, Harry Potter, Hannibal, Game of Thrones and Doctor Who (and oh so many more).
I think the reason why Robin Williams death hit a lot of people hard, (myself included) is because his acting is a direct link to your past, whether it was Mrs Doubtfire, Dead Poets Society, Hook, Patch Adams, Aladdin, etc the fact of the matter is a part of the fabric of your young life is now gone, so you feel an actual real loss, over a man you’ve never met.
gentle reminder that it is okay to be as sad as you feel necessary when a celebrity passes, and it is okay to feel completely indifferent about it and giving others a hard time whatever their reaction is just a dick thing to do.
The opening scene with the street merchant was completely unscripted. Robin Williams was brought into the sound stage and was asked to stand behind a table that had several objects on it and a bed sheet covering them all. The animators asked him to lift the sheet, and without looking take an object from the table and describe it in character. Much of the material in that recording session was not appropriate for a Disney film.
"Combination hookah and coffee maker, also makes julienne fries! It will not break! It will not- …. it broke."
that line used to just kill me as a kid and now it’s better because it was unscripted and he probably broke the prop
