Rick Moranis Will Return to Honey, I Shrunk The
Disney has been working on a reboot for Honey, I Shrunk the Kids and has officially pushed nostalgia levels to critical mass.
Moranis will return as Dr. Wayne Szalinski, the eccentric scientist who just so happens to make his house his lab. Joe Johnston, director of the original, will direct the reboot, which has Josh Gad attached to star as Szalinski 8217;s grown son. David Hoberman is producing the reboot from a script by Todd Rosenberg. No other casting attachments or plot information has been revealed.
Moranis is well-known for a number of 8217;80s and 8217;90s comedy classics, including Ghostbusters, Spaceballs, and Disney 8217;s Little Giants. Most millennial viewers, however, know him for Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.
Disney 8217;s 1989 original focused on Szalinski 8217;s kids who stumble upon a very poorly secured shrink ray in their family home and accidentally shrink themselves down to the size of bugs. The movie struck a delightful balance between sci-fi and family fun, taking the convention of the family comedy, adding some special effects, and teaching kids everywhere that bananas are high in potassium.
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids spawned a 1992 sequel, Honey, I Blew Up the Kid, and a 1997 straight-to-DVD continuation, Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves, which was his last live-action film. Moranis starred in all three, as the good doctor just can 8217;t seem to follow proper safety procedures on his experiments, accidentally inflating his newborn baby to the size of a house and then shrinking himself and his wife.标签：
