Rick Moranis returning for Honey, I Shrunk the Kids sequel Shrunk

The new movie, which will star Josh Gad as the grown son of Szalinski's character, finds his spawn charting his own scientific path - and repeating his father's error by shrinking the kids.

Joe Johnston, who made his directorial debut with "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids" and went on to helm "Captain America: The First Avenger", is set to return as well.

"To say it is a dream come true to once again see #RickMoranis on the big screen is the understatement of the decade". Disney will be bringing back an icon of the 80s when it makes a new Honey, I shrunk the Kids sequel that is now in development.

Rick Moranis is returning to the Honey, I Shrunk The Kids franchise with Disney after taking an acting hiatus in 1997. Moranis couldn't even be convinced to return for this summer's Ghostbusters: After Life, which makes it all the more telling that Disney managed to woo him back for this one.

Moranis declined an offer to appear in the 2016 all-female Ghostbusters reboot; he does not seem to have been cast in the forthcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife, due for release in July.

He also starred in Frank Oz directed sci-fi film LIttle Shop Of Horrors in 1986. The couple had two children together: Rachel and Mitchell.

"I'm surprised that Disney hasn't done 'Honey, I Shrunk the Grandkids, ' " he told the Hollywood Reporter in 2015. "I still get the occasional query about a film or television role. and as soon as one comes along that piques my interest, I'll probably do it".

"I was working with really interesting people, wonderful people", he said. It will be Moranis' first movie since 1997's "Honey We Shrunk Ourselves", as he retired from acting after the death of his wife to focus on raising their children. "Picky has worked for me".
