In the recently releasedtrailer for the film, we see Robin at his comedic finest alongside co-stars Lauren Graham and Joel McHale.
The extended preview depicts the hilarious trials and tribulations Joel and Robin’s characters go through to ‘save Christmas’. Naturally, the film is full of seriously funny hijinks and we can’t wait to see it all play out on the big screen.
Will you see the film when it’s released this November or will it be just too sad to watch?
And she thinks audiences may have the same reaction. In an interview with KIIS FM on Thursday morning, Rebel said that [SPOILER ALERT]Robin saying goodbye as Theodore Roosevelt is almost too sad to handle. She said:
“It’s just so emotional because in the movie his character knows he’s not going to be alive the next day and he gives this speech and it was just me and my assistant Katie just sitting in this screening room just crying. It’s super, super emotional.”
Rebel has joyous memories of working with Robin too. In fact, she remembers one day on set that she’ll treasure forever. She said:
“He watched me in a scene with Ben Stiller and called me over to his trailer afterwards and he just said, ‘I think you’re such a great improviser and you’re so funny.’
I was so shocked that the Robin Williams was speaking to me and the fact that he was watching me for the last four hours and wanted to tell me all this stuff about comedy for about two hours. It was just, I couldn’t believe I got to have that time with him and how cool.”
Yet another example of Robin touching lives wherever he went.
The comedian went on The Tonight Show where he and host Jimmy Fallon swapped stories about the late star, recounting all of the times that he made them laugh the hardest. Since Billy was Robin’s good friend, he has a ton of them!
