Rick Moranis Returns for Honey, I Shrunk The Kids Sequel!

Rick Moranis, AKA Wayne Szalinski is reprising his role as the famous inventor in Shrunk. This role will mark his first return to live-action film since 1997’s Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves. The new film stars Josh Gad (Frozen) as Wayne’s son. While it’s unclear how large of a role Moranis will play, the fact he accepted at all is very significant, as he famously turned down a cameo in the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot and is known to be extremely selective in his roles. We’re just happy to have you back, Rick. You’ll always be Inventor (and Father) of the Year in our hearts.
