Fastpass To History: Back To Neverland

Back To Neverland

This week the world tragically lost a talented actor and comedienne who brought smiles and laughter to so many people. Robin Williams brought so many great characters to life through his work. Several of my favorite Robin Williams characters include his work for Disney.

While Robin Williams is well known for his brilliant portrayal of Genie from Aladdin, he also played a role in one of my favorite videos from the Disney parks. Years ago, the Animation Tour at Disney-MGM Studios began with a short film about how animated films are created. The film, Back To Neverland, starred Robin Williams and Walter Cronkite. As Robin Williams is transformed into an animated character, Walter Cronkite explains the animation process. This film was definitely one of the highlights of the tour. Take a look at the video below.

Do you remember watching Back To Neverland at Disney-MGM Studios?

Please join me in praying for the family and friends of Robin Williams as they go through the difficult months and weeks ahead. Robin made the world a happier place during his time on Earth and will be greatly missed.
