Robin’s Wish will see interviews from his widow, Susan Schneider Williams, as well as people he worked with towards the end of his life including Night At The Museum director Shawn Levy.

Speaking about the making of the documentary, Susan said the process had helped her to understand more about the condition Robin was suffering from towards the end of his life.

She told Entertainment Weekly: “Armed with the name of a brain disease I’d never heard of, I set out on a mission to understand it, and that led me down my unchosen path of advocacy.”

“With invaluable help from leading medical experts, I saw that what Robin and I had gone through, finally made sense — our experience matched up with the science.

“And what I discovered along the way was bigger than me and bigger than Robin. The full story was revealed during the making of this film, and it holds the truth that Robin and I had been searching for.”

Back in April, a new YouTube channel launched, featuring a host of Robin Williams’ classic stand-up routines.
