Such a tragedy. Robin Williams, was found dead in his home at the age of 63. The iconic actor and comedian touched the lives of many, and with four unreleased films, including Merry Friggin’ Christmas and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, audiences will be able to see Robin do what he did best — make people smile and laugh. Read below for all the details of the fallen actors upcoming roles.

Robin Williams ‘Merry Friggin’ Christmas’

Tributes poured in to honor the late actor following his apparent suicide. From heartbreaking statements from his wife, Susan Schneiderhis devastated daughter Zelda, 25, and his Good Will Hunting co-stars Ben Affleck, 41 and Matt Damon, 43, it is clear that Robin will be missed. Leaving behind an amazing legacy, the actor had four new films in the works that are set to be released this year.

The first of Robin’s first four pictures to open will be Merry Friggin’ Christmas, which is set to debut theatrically and on demand on Nov. 7.

Robin plays the role of Mitch, a slightly eccentric man who is estranged from his son, Boyd, played by the hilarious Joel McHale.

According to the DailyMail, “After suffering through the company of his estranged family, the film sees Boyd take Mitch on a crazy eight-hour road trip through a blizzard after Boyd realises he has accidentally forgotten to bring all of Doug’s presents.” — seems like this father-son duo won’t be able to stay estranged for long!

In the short clip, Boyd is somewhat reluctant to bring his family to his father’s home for christmas, and we can see why! Boyd begins to dig in to what he believes to be chicken, only to find out that he is chewing on shot-gun pellets! After he starts choking, he looks to his father, who announced, “It’s squirrel.”

The seemingly hilarious film co-stars Lauren Graham, Candice Bergen and Clark Duke.

Robin’s Unreleased Films

Along with his upcoming holiday flick, Robin will be starring in three other movies. In Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb the fallen comedian will return to reprise his role as President Teddy Roosevelt alongside of Ben Stiller, when it hits theaters on Dec 19.

Robin is also set to star in the film, Boulevard. Although it did debut at Tribeca Film Festival, it does not have a distribution date in the US. This film, which IMDB describes as being about, “A devoted husband in a marriage of convenience is forced to confront his secret life,” will show off Robin’s seamless ability to take on any role rather it be serious or comedic.

For his final role, Robin lends his voice to  “Dennis the Dog.” He will be starring alongside of Kate Beckinsale, and Simon Pegg in live action roles.
