So sad and scary.

This is a pretty good pick!
On Monday the President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) Lorenzo Soria announced the recipient of the Cecil B. De Mille Award at the upcoming 73rd Golden Globes — and we LOVE it!
The winner is a movie star with a storied career in Hollywood.
If that's not enough, he's NEVER made a sequel before his upcoming project that's due out in 2017, and has a podcast named after him titled _____ is The Greatest Actor of All Time Period!
This is a real moment for him to bask in some well-deserved glory…
He's had so many hits, you could call him a man on fire…
Seems like he's one jump ahead of Disney even in the afterlife.
As you may already know, the lengthy legal battle between Robin Williams' children and his wife Susan Williams finally came to an end at the beginning of October, and now more details about his will are surfacing.
Susan already spoke to GMA about the trouble she went through to protect his estate and her home, but now we're hearing what rules Robin laid out in regards to his work as an actor.
Apparently, his will is extremely strict when it comes to those amazing Aladdin outtakes that we saw last month, to the point where the House of Mouse cannot
This is so heartbreaking.
On Good Morning America Tuesday, the Robin's widow sat down with ABC News' Amy Robach and revealed quite a bit about her husband's final moments, his unknown health problems, and how's she's been coping.
On Wednesday morning, GMA released a second part of the interview, in which Susan tells her side of the legal battle with Williams' kids.
According to the Jumanji star's widow, she was "forced" to go to court in order to protect Robin's estate and retain the couple's house!
Susan says she was still in the grieving process when calls started to come in regarding taking legal action regarding the Oscar winner's estate:
This is just so sad!
In fact, in a candid interview with People magazine, the late funnyman's wife revealed that prior to his death he was told that he'd have to enter an inpatient treatment facility for his Parkinson's disease — perhaps indefinitely.
"This is when a pivotal moment happened. The psychiatrist said 'Now, Robin…' – and mind you this is a few weeks before he left [died] – 'It is no longer an option to have inpatient neurocognitive evaluation. This is now mandatory and we need to decide, you need to decide where you want to go and we're all going to figure this out.'"
However, the Oscar winner's autopsy later revealed that he suffered from Lewy Body Dementia — which happens to cause disorientation and hallucinations. Tragic.
This meeting with the psychiatrist came about after Miz Williams found her husband with a head injury after an accident with a door in July 2014.
This news obviously shook Robin to his core, something his love noticed.
We can't imagine how difficult this must be for her.
The emotional interview is very telling and reveals some insight into what the comedian was going through in his struggles with depression and Parkinson's disease.
Susan not only reveals the last loving words exchanged between her and the love of her life, but also talked quite a bit about seeing her husband "disintegrating" before her eyes.
Apparently Robin suffered from Lewy body dementia, a disorder that would have caused a progressive decline in mental abilities. Susan explained:
This is so sad.
But the pain of those touched by Williams' career is far exceeded by that felt by Susan Williams, the widow of the late comedian.
Susan spoke to ABC News reporter Amy Robach about the actor's death, and how she's been healing since that day.
Check out a preview of the interview (below):
Now, the 1992 film is being digitally re-released, along with never-before-seen clips from the House Of Mouse that feature outtakes of Williams' vocal work!
On Thursday's Good Morning America, the cast and creators of the Arabian tale sat down to share memories of the Oscar winner and his part in the movie's long-lasting impact!
Ron Clements, who co-wrote and co-directed the movie, said there was "nobody else that could be the Genie," explaining that the part was written with Williams in mind. He elaborated:
