Goonies never say die.
Set your alarms for 5pm today, people! We’re going all the way back to 1985 for this one. Yes, you read it correctly. The cast of The Goonies are reuniting for a special event this afternoon.
Sadly, due to lockdown restrictions, we can’t go an adventure quite like the gang did in eighties classic The Goonies. But thanks to Josh Gad, we’re getting a brand new taste of their life. Josh Gad, star of Frozen, announced the news via his YouTube channel. He did so in epic style, joined by star of the Steven Spielberg-produced movie Sean Astin to recite “Troy’s Bucket” passage from the film.
The reunion airs at 5pm UK Time and will no doubt send many of us into nostalgic overdrive. Along with Sean Astin (Mikey), we’ll be blessed with the presence of Josh Brolin (Brand), Kerri Green (Andy), Corey Feldman (Mouth), Martha Plimpton (Stef), Ke Huy Quan (Data) and Jeff Cohen (Chunk).
Josh Gad will host the reunion, but no word has followed on the exact form the reunion will take. Be sure to check into Josh Gad’s YouTube channel at 5pm. There is talk of “many surprises”, so who knows where this could take us. All will be revealed later today…
