Comedian Carl Reiner died just three days after filming a beautiful scene for a charity project. Director Jason Reitman put together a Princess Bride remake with a bunch of celebrities during quarantine. The Princess Bride is a cult-classic film from 1987, directed by Carl’s son Rob Reiner.

For the remake, Jason got different celebrities including Rob, Carl, Jennifer Garner, and more to recreate scenes. Carl and Rob act out the closing scene. In the closing scene of the original film, the grandfather reads the story to his grandson before bed.

They did not know this would be Carl’s last project. It was certainly a bittersweet goodbye for the 98-year-old. Carl ends the scene by saying “As you wish,” which really means, “I love you” in the classic film.
