The Goonies are reuniting at Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo 2019

Mar 5 2019, 5:43 am

No movie better encapsulates the thrill of adventure, bravery, and camaraderie quite like the 1985 cult-classic, The Goonies. 

Set in Astoria, Oregon, the story revolves around a group of kids called the Goonies who go in search of a pirate’s fortune in the hopes of saving their neighbourhood from demolition.

Starring Sean Astin (who would see further fame in Rudy and The Lord of the Rings trilogy), The Goonies became a cult classic thanks to its quotable lines, memorable moments, and occasionally over-the-top story beats.

Now, over 30 years after finding treasure and saving their hometown of Astoria (sorry about the spoiler, but, come on, it’s been out for a while now), three of the most memorable Goonies are reuniting at this year’s Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo.

Sean Astin (Mikey Walsh), Corey Feldman (Clark “Mouth” Devereaux), and Ke Huy Quan (Richard “Data” Wang) will attend the four-day long festival to meet with attendees, sign autographs, and pose in photos with fans of the flick.

Astin will be on scene on Saturday and Sunday, Feldman will be around on Sunday, and Quan will be available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Fans may also recognize Feldman from The Lost Boys and Stand By Me, while Quam played Short Round in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. 

Autographs and photo ops can be purchased in advance at the Calgary Expo website, along with general admission tickets.
