World of Warcraft Robin Williams tribute models uncovered
World of Warcraft database site Wowhead has uncovered the in-game models to represent the late actor and comedian Robin Williams.
The model (which has been used before as pointed out by a Kotaku reader) depicts him as a genie-like character, named Robin, The Entertainer, obviously referring to his role as The Genie in Disney’s 1992 animated film Aladdin.
There are two more models on the website that suggest he will also appear as the character Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire from the 1993 film Mrs. Doubtfire and a normal-looking male model that doesn’t seem to be from a specific movie. You can view all three models here (courtesy of Reddit user planet5421).
A 10,000-signature-strong petition for Blizzard to memorialize Williams suggested including him in one of the game’s taverns to tell jokes “so that he may continue making us smile long after his passing.” It’s still unclear how or where Williams, who said he played World of Warcraft in interviews before, will be in the game, but we’ll likely find out soon.
Williams, 63, passed away earlier this month, leaving behind his wife and three children.
