Honey I Shrunk the Kids is getting a sequel 31 years later, with Rick Moranis returning

Must See 14/02/2020

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids was released over 30 years ago! And now, the well known film is set for a reboot.

The reboot is set to star the original film's star Rick Moranis, who retired from acting decades ago.

The movie, titled Shrunk, will also see the return of original director Joe Johnston, and will star Frozen's Josh Gad as the son of Moranis's character Wayne Szalinski.

This will be Moranis's first live-action movie since 1997's Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves, which was a straight-to-video release.

Moranis took a step back from acting to focus on raising his two children following the death of his wife, costume designer Ann Belsky, in 1991.

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids followed the story of an inventor who accidentally shrunk his own and his next door neighbour's children to a quarter of an inch with his electromagnetic shrinking machine, and accidentally throws them out with the rubbish, where they must find their way through their garden to return home.

The film was an unexpected hit, becoming the highest-grossing live-action Disney movie ever at the time.

Rick Moranis is also known for his roles in Ghostbusters, Spaceballs and The Little Shop of Horrors.
