The 1989 film 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids' is a bit of a classic, so when Disney announced their plans for a reboot - they wanted to make sure the new version was in the right hands.

The reboot, simply named 'Shrunk', is set to star Frozen 2 star Josh Gad and now it seems the director of the original film, Joe Johnston, will be returning to lead the charge on the new flick.

Work on the film is still in very early stages, but some original characters are set to be returning.

"In the original film, Moranis plays Wayne Szalinski, a scientist and father who accidentally shrinks his teenage son and daughter, along with the two brothers from next door, to just a quarter of an inch in size." Variety says.

"When they are thrown out with the trash, the four kids must travel through their backyard to return home while fending off insects, lawnmowers and other obstacles."

"In this version, Gad will play Wayne’s grown-up son, who follows in his father’s footsteps by not only becoming a scientist, but also accidentally shrinking his children."

Fingers crossed we see this reboot on screens sooner rather than later!
