“HEEEY YOUUU GUUUYS!” – “Goonies” Director Says Sequel is DEFINITELY Happening!

“Goonies Never Say Die!” Truer words never spoken, as the film’s director, Richard Donner, has confirmed that a sequel is in the works. Not only that, but he plans to bring back the entire original cast!

…Of course, we imagine he means the kids, the Goonies themselves, as several of the original cast, including Mama Fratelli and Sloth, have since passed away.

For a great many of us, in any fandom, when we see news of a beloved film or book or comic or game being revisited or reimagined, it’s always something of a mixed blessing. Something to be cautiously optimistic about. The sequel to “The Goonies” is no exception here. No doubt, the gang has fallen apart and will have to be brought back together to solve some mystery or find some treasure to help out someone who’s fallen on hard times… You know, the old “Blues Brothers” method.

But, we at TFP will be keeping an eye out for more news, and we’ll all be hoping for a tale worthy of their legendary friendship courage.

For a look at how the actors look now, almost 20 years later, check out the below picture:


Man, it’ll be really weird to see a skinny Chunk!


We’re, as always, gonna at least give it a shot.

What do you all think of this development?

    I loved that movie so much! You’re right–it’s such a mixed blessing for a beloved classic to be revisited. I can’t wait to see how it’s done, though. I’m excited to have stumbled upon a blog that gets into this stuff as much as I do. Cheers!

      Thanks for the comment! I’m going to be optimistic about the movie, even as I sit here, heartbroken that there will never be another Sloth moment. But it’ll be interesting to see where the director envisions the characters at now in their adult lives!
