‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids‘ Sequel Starring Josh Gad Coming Soon! The working title for the reboot is being called ‘Shrunk‘ and will take place 3 decades after the original 1989 classic.
‘Shrunk‘ will be the third sequel to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, but will take place much later that the original films which were set in the 80’s and 90’s. Rumors circulated that Shrunk was in the beginning stages of production and would be released via Disney+, but according to slashfilm.com the film is being set for a theatrical release despite the last film Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves which was released direct-to-video.
The films were wildly popular with audiences and even sparks a tv show that ran from 1997-2000. So when will the new film take place and who will play the classic characters?
We know that Josh Gad has been signed to the film and will star as a grown up Nick Szalinksi, Wayne Szalinski’s (Rick Moranis) son, who accidentally shrinks his own children, similarly to how his father did so 30 years earlier.
Josh is no stranger to Disney and has worked with the studio to voice or portray several characters including Olaf from Frozen and Lafou in the live action Beauty and the Beast. No other castings have been announced and we will keep you posted about future updates about Shrunk.
There is no set release date for the film just yet, but more than likely filming will begin in late 2019 or early 2020 with a release likely to be in 2021.
