Rick Moranis Is Returning For The Honey, I Shrunk The Kids Sequel

Rick Moranis Is Returning For The Honey, I Shrunk The Kids Sequel

Rick Moranis has finally closed a deal that will see him return to the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids franchise for new movie Shrunk.

Moranis - who has also starred in comedy classics like Ghostbusters, Spaceballs and The Flintstones - had been rumoured for a return, but now has successfully managed to thrash the details out with Disney.

He confirmed his involvement with a fairly self-explanatory tweet:

This latest sequel, which is the fourth film in the series, will be directed by the returning Joe Johnston, and also features Josh Gad, better known - if you have kids - as Olaf from Frozen.

The new film seems set to focus on Gad's character, who is the son of Moranis' Wayne Szalinski, and presumably has similar tendencies when it comes to minimalizing various members of his family.

We can only imagine that Gad's character is also an aspiring scientist, and you'd also have to presume he'll somehow manage to shrink his own children this time.

A fitting tribute to his old dad, eh?

According to The Disinsider, the plot might go something like this: "Aware that the family ties have loosened over time, but seemingly afraid to confront anyone directly.

"[Wayne] has been tinkering alone in his attic for decades, dealing with the grief of losing his wife.

​Rick Moranis Rumoured To Be In ‘Early Talks’ For Honey I Shrunk The Kids Reboot

"He later reveals he shut himself away to try and invent a solution to help shrink Diane's cancer, but found it hard to cope when he ran out of time. His guilt and shame is palpable.

"Through the crisis of the kids getting shrunk, the truth emerges and the bonds begin to redevelop between him and his kids."

Disney will be hoping that this latest outing is as successful as some of the other films in the franchise, anyway.

Overall - unadjusted for inflation - the first two films took $281m (£217m) at the box office. After the initial success of 1989's Honey I Shrunk the Kids, Disney continued the story with Honey, I Blew Up the Kid and the straight-to-video Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.

The success led to a TV series as well.

Although they've been out of the game since 2000 - when the TV series finished - Disney will be hoping that the fans are still there.

The return of Rick Moranis might play a decent part in that.
