Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Promises Robin Williams' Character Will Be immortalized in 'Jumanji' Reboot

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has officially started working on his Jumanji reboot, and took to Instagram to discuss the late Robin Williams, who starred in the original film.

“An important thing that I want to be honest and bring up is Robin Williams. The love and respect I have for this man is boundless. You have my word, we will honor his name and the character of ‘Alan Parrish’ will stand alone and be forever immortalized in the world of JUMANJI in an earnest and cool way. I have an idea of what to do and I think his family will be proud. I also think Robin is somewhere lookin’ down and laughing, remembering the first time we met backstage and I (for the first time ever) was a star struck bumbling idiot that couldn’t even get my words out. Idiot. He literally calmed me down w/ that smile and laugh. But that’s for another fun story down the road,” The Rock wrote on his Instagram account. “We got a great team assembled already over at our home base of SONY and now we build from here.”

Dwayne also added, “Here’s another fun part… in the original movie there were three big roles. In our new story there’s now FIVE. Been so damn cool to see all my actor buddies push their projects aside so hopefully they can come play in our world. Should have cool casting announcements this week. Will keep you posted. #TheMagicBegins #JustPressStart #JUMANJI.”

Robin Williams' Widow Discusses His Cause of Death, Details Their Last Conversation in New Interviews

Robin Williams‘ widow Susan has given several interviews that came out today (November 3) about her husband’s sudden and tragic death last summer.

“It was not depression that killed Robin,” Susan told People about his diagnoses, with was Diffuse Lewy Body Dementia or Dementia with Lewy bodies. “Depression was one of let’s call it 50 symptoms and it was a small one.”

“I’ve spent this last year trying to find out what killed Robin. To understand what we were fighting, what we were in the trenches fighting and one of the doctors said, ‘Robin was very aware that he was losing his mind and there was nothing he could do about it,’” Susan added, saying that the symptoms include anxiety, delusions and impaired movement.

“If Robin was lucky, he would’ve had maybe three years left. And they would’ve been hard years. And it’s a good chance he would’ve been locked up,” Susan added to ABC News.

She also detailed the last conversation she had with him, when he asked if she wanted a foot rub.

“And I said, ‘It’s OK, honey. Not — you know, it’s OK. You don’t have to tonight.’ And I’ll never forget the look in his eyes of just, sad because he wanted to. And I wished — you know? Then he came back in the room a couple of times. Once to his closet. And he said — and then he laughed. And he said, ‘Goodnight, my love.’ And I said, ‘Goodnight, my love,’” Susan described.
