The Goonies director Richard Donner confirmed the exciting news that the beloved children's adventure would indeed be hitting our screens once more whilst signing autographs in Beverly Hills, California, over the weekend.

That would mean stars Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin, Sean Astin and Jeff Cohen would all be back, and seeing those four stars in the same film again — given how diverse their acting careers have become since their hit childhood movie — is definitely going to be unmissable!

The Goonies is often cited as one of the top children's films from the '80s, but would the sequel have the original actors starring as the same characters almost 30 years later?

Donner has not revealed any more about the sequel at this time. However, this is not the first time there has been talk of a The Goonies comeback. According to the New York Daily News, in 2010, the famed director was actually completely against the idea.

"I don't think there'd be a sequel," Donner told Collider via the New York Daily News. "I wouldn't remake it. If anything it'd be something new and fresh."
