Vertical Entertainment have released the official trailer for the upcoming Robin Williams documentary Robin’s Wish.
The official synopsis for the documentary is as follows:
In August 2014, the world was shocked to find out that Robin Williams had died by suicide. For someone who brought so much humour to the world, it was a tragic, traumatic end. But no one knew how much more there was to the story. Left to speculate on Robin’s motives, the media circus spun out further and further, leaving the public in the dark about a complicated and obscured truth: Robin – bright, funny, quick witted – had lost a battle against an unknown enemy: the nearly impossible to diagnose brain disease Lewy body dementia. Knowing the truth can make all the difference. LBD is a disease that, while all too common, is unknown to most, and without a diagnosis causes heightened fear, paranoia and confusion. In the end, Robin may have lost his final battle with dementia, but he succeeded at his lifelong goal – To make people less afraid. This is Robin’s wish.
The documentary features Robin’s widow, Susan Schneider Williams, his friends and colleagues, Shawn Levy, John R. Montgomery and David E. Kelley, giving interviews about Robin Williams. The documentary is directed by Tylor Norwood.
Robin’s Wish is scheduled to be released On Demand on the 1st September 2020.
