The Goonies

In 1991, plans for a sequel to The Goonies were underway at Amblin Entertainment in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures.

Plot[]

The plot is currently unknown.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. It was denied many times over the years by the original cast and crew.
  2. Donner said that he had a story he liked and Spielberg behind him. However, in 2004, most of the cast of the original film revealed that Warner Bros., the film's owner, had shown no interest in a sequel.

Result[]

  • The Goonies remains as a standalone film.
  • Rumors of adaptations and sequels in other media took off in 2007, including a comic-book miniseries, an animated television series and a musical adaptation of the film. Corey Feldman said he was asked to returns as Mouth in an animated series that would feature the original Goonies characters as adults and focus on the adventures of a new set of kids. Apparently, this project was briefly in the works for Cartoon Network before being shelved. Entertainment Weekly reported in March 2007 on a potential musical adaptation of the film. "Steven and I have discussed it, and it's something that I'm fairly passionate about right now," Donner says. Variety reported in October 2008 that Donner had met with Broadway entertainment attorney John Breglio, and is "confident things are moving in the right direction." As of May 2011, the musical was still in the beginning stages, but Donner was hopeful that an "irreverent" script would be completed by October.
  • On April 5, 2014, Richard Donner revealed that the sequel was in the works, and he hoped to bring back the whole cast.
  • On February 12, 2020, Fox ordered a pilot for a drama series from Sarah Watson, creator of The Bold Type, about a woman helping film students create a shot-for-shot remake of The Goonies. Greg Mottola is attached as director, and as executive producer along with Richard Donner and his wife, Lauren Shuler Donner. On May 7, 2021, Fox announced that the pilot would not be moving forward.
  • On December 15, 2021, Disney+ picked up the series for development now titled Our Time.
