Published Apr 27, 2020Proving that Goonies never say die, the original cast of the beloved 1985 movie have staged a reunion thanks to Josh Gad. Yes, the stars of The Goonies all got back together, and they were joined by a series of special guests, including executive producer Steven Spielberg, director Richard Donner and even soundtrack star Cyndi Lauper.
The first episode of Gad's "Reunited Apart" — the comedian's new charity-oriented YouTube show — saw Goonies stars Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman, Jeff Cohen, Ke Huy Quan, Martha Plimpton and Kerri Green all getting back together.
They were joined by those aforementioned special guests, as well as writer Chris Columbus and even actors Joe Pantoliano and Robert Davi, who played the Fratelli brothers in the film.
Down below, you can watch the Goonies reunion, which even finds the cast reenacting scenes from the film. There's also a ton of behind-the-scene stories, as well as some footage from the original film.
At one point, the show even addresses the possibility of a sequel to The Goonies.
"Chris, Dick and I — and Lauren [Shuler Donner] — have had a lot of conversations about it," said Spielberg during the show. "Every couple of years we come up with an idea but then it doesn't hold water."
Spoiler: there's also a singalong to "The Goonies 'R' Good Enough."
The funds from the first episode will go towards the Center for Disaster Philanthropy to support their COVID-19 Response Fund.
