2020 is feeling like the longest year on record and it’s just February. But earlier this week we were treated to some of the best news coming out of Hollywood in some recent memory. Rick Moranis left acting in 1997 to raise his children. A great cause indeed. But during that time the actor did a few voice-over roles for major animated features such as Brother Bear. Recently, he reprised his role as Dark Helmet from Spaceballs during an episode of The Goldbergs. Rick Moranis may honestly have some of the most iconic roles for an actor during late 80s to early 90s. Little Shop of Horrors to Ghostbusters, to Little Giants, just to name a few, in fact, this topic became a debate topic on an episode of TBK Live. But one question we wanted to know is when the actor would return to the screen. And we have our answer.
Rick Moranis is signed on to be part of the Honey, I Shrunk The Kids reboot. He will return to one of his most famous roles, Wayne Szalinski. But that is not all, the original director Joe Johnston will always be part of this new movie. And Wayne’s son will be portrayed by the very funny Josh Gad.
The other huge part of this story is reboot will be hitting the big screen and not going straight to Disney+ like some thought.
While, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is not my favorite franchise of all time, I can say without a shadow of a doubt this is one film that I am ready to see on opening day. Will we see Rick Moranis return to acting for a period of time? I honestly hope so.
