“The Goonies” r good enough for a reunion.
“Frozen” star Josh Gad has been reading to our children almost nightly during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, now he’s got the members of “The Goonies” back together, NME reported.
Gad made the announcement over the weekend on his YouTube channel with some help from Sean Astin.
Astin, Josh Brolin, Kerri Green, Ke Huy Quan, Martha Plimpton and Jeff Cohen were part of the event. So was be Corey Feldman, who just last year, said there would be no reunion when asked about the prospects of “The Goonies 2,” TMZ and US magazine reported last year.
They were also joined by Joe Pantoliano and Robert Davi, the actors who played the Fratelli brothers.
Surprise guests like Chris Columbus who wrote the script, director Richard Donner and executive producer Steven Spielberg joined the chat. Cyndi Lauper, who wrote the song “The Goonies 'R' Good Enough," made an appearance, Deadline reported.
There had been talk over the years after Astin said in 2015 that there would be a sequel one day, NME reported.
Apparently Astin was partially right five years ago. Fox is working on a project where students would do a shot-for-shot remake of the film, Deadline reported.
The reunion will be Monday at 12 p.m. ET, 9 a.m. PT, Deadline reported.
“The Goonies” was originally released on June 7, 1985, and this year marks the 35th anniversary. The town of Astoria Oregon was supposed to host an event, but due to the coronavirus, the celebration may go on, but it will be different than the organizers had originally planned, officials with the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce said on the group’s website. Plans were expected to be announced last month, but the pandemic has delayed it.
