Sigh…I really regret doing this Forgotten/Minor Characters project with Pixar films, not because it’s a task I find boring. On the contrary, it’s wonderful to re-watch these Pixar films as I’m personally a Disney fan, hence the Disney movies are the ones that I’ve seen over and over multiple times whereas most Pixar films I’ve only seen once or twice.
No, the reason I regret doing this project with the Pixar films is that it’s so hard finding forgotten/minor characters in these films. Pixar has mastered a way of creating a plethora of characters in their films while still making each character distinct, unique, and above all, memorable. This is an admirable quality except when you’re doing a project like this. But, that’s the way the cookie crumbles and the show must go on and (insert any other figure of speech/idiom/phrase that you deem fit).

As if the news of Robin Williams’ passing wasn’t enough to bear, the news reported that the iconic actress, Lauren Bacall, had died the very next day.

In news that I’m still in shock over, beloved actor/comedian, Robin Williams has died at the age of 63! The cause of death is suspected to be suicide, but hasn’t been stated for certain.
