Once upon a time, a group of misfit kids from a small town stumbled upon a treasure map that led them on an adventure of a lifetime.
Their adventures were chronicled in a classic 80s film called ‘The Goonies‘, which became a cult classic and beloved by generations of viewers. Now, years later, a TV series inspired by the iconic movie is heading to Disney+.
The series, set in the same small town as the movie, will follow a new group of kids who discover the treasure map and set out on their own adventure to find the hidden treasure. The show promises to be filled with the same sense of fun, excitement, and danger that made the original movie such a hit.
Fans of ‘The Goonies’ can expect to see familiar nods to the original film, including references to the town’s history and landmarks, as well as appearances by some of the original cast members.
As the new gang of adventurers faces their own set of obstacles and unexpected twists, viewers can’t help but join them on their quest and root for them along the way.
With Disney+ bringing this classic story back to life, a new generation of fans can join in the fun and excitement of ‘The Goonies’ and experience the magic of an unforgettable adventure.
This new series is currently called “Our Time” and the production companies, the Donner Company and Amblin, are back on board for the Disney+ series. Sarah Watson is also an executive producer on the series with Gail Berman, Hend Baghdady, Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, Lauren Shuler Donner and the late Richard Donner; and Amblin TV’s.
The show’s producer, Gail Berman, revealed plot details for the upcoming TV show with Variety to promote the new Warner Brothers film, “Elvis”, when she was asked about the upcoming “Goonies” series.
“This is a partnership between me, Amblin, and Lauren Shuler Donner. When I was at Paramount, there were these young boys doing this movie about “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” a shot-by-shot remake. It got some press at the time, and the studio was very upset about it. I thought it was an amazing idea, and it always stood in my head of — how can you take an idea like that and turn it into a TV series? … We needed a terrific writer and great partners, so we brought the idea to Amblin and those guys loved it. Sarah Watson is our creator. The series is a story of a town and a family in the lens of “Friday Night Lights,” and within that they tell a story of a shot-by-shot remake of “The Goonies.” We had to go to Warner Bros., to Toby Emmerich, and ask if we could have rights [to “The Goonies”]. They said yes, obviously, because of Mr. Spielberg and the Donners. We’re now doing this for Disney Plus.”Gail Berman, Variety
