The film-loving world was recently united in collective joy when it was confirmed that Rick Moranis would return for Shrunk a ] Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Continued from Disney. Moranis, a popular comedic star known for his work in films like Ghostbusters and Spaceballs stepped out of the limelight more than two decades ago and has performed on selected projects over the years only very sparsely on since. Now Moranis has publicly commented on the news in a simple but extremely effective manner.
Rick Moranis does have a Twitter, but it's not what you would call an overly active user. Given the news that he came from partial retirement to make his first appearance in a film since 1997, this was worth a tweet. The actor shared a GIF of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids with these three simple words.
"Honey, I'm back"
Honey, I shrunk the children Published in 1989, was one of the most memorable roles by Rick Moranis. In the film, he plays Wayne Szalinski, a scientist who accidentally shrinks his children. Josh Gad ( Frozen Murder on the Orient Express ) is said to play his son Nick, who walks a mile in his father's shoes after shrinking his children. Gad, who went on Twitter, expressed his enthusiasm for Moranis' return to Shurnk .
"To say it was a dream come true, Rick Moranis on the big screen again is the understatement of the decade One of his most iconic roles is the understatement of the century, welcome back, hero! # Shrunk "
Originally, it looked like Disney was developing this for the century streaming side of things on Disney +. Rather, this will be a theatrical release, which seems to imply that they have great confidence in the project. Another important element is that Joe Johnston, known for his work on films such as Captain America: The First Avenger and The Rocketeer will sit on the director's chair. Johnston also directed the original, which means that this is a form-fitting return for the franchise.
Honey, I Shrunk The children were a great success at the time of their publication and brought 222 at the box office Million dollars. There were two sequels, the 1992 released Honey, I Blew Up the Kid, and the direct video released Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves, which arrived in 1997. Since then Moranis has stepped out of the Limelight to raise his children and mainly followed the language work in Brother Bear films. Moranis could not even be persuaded to return for the Ghostbusters: After Life this summer which makes it all the more revealing that Disney has managed to win him back for this film. Shrunk has not yet set a release date, but we will keep you posted as further details become known. Be sure to read the post from Rick Moranis' Twitter account.
