Corey Feldman, Martha Plimpton, And Ke Huy Quan Recreate Wishing Well Goonies Scene At Josh Gad Reunion
Corey Feldman, Martha Plimpton, and Ke Huy Quan recreated their famous "Wishing Well" scene from their cult-classic movie The Goonies . The cast joined host Josh Gad ( Frozen ) for his inaugural episode of Reunited Apart — a new YouTube series that debuted with a bang and climbed the YouTube trending charts! Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, many people who otherwise may have been engaged had a free schedule and were able to participate. Along with Corey Feldman, Martha Plimpton, and Ke Huy Quan, the remaining former child stars joined the panel including Kerri Green, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, and Sean Astin. Chris Columbus, Richard Donner, Steven Spielberg, Cindy Lauper, and the Fratelli brothers played by Robert Davi and Joe Pantoliano later joined the seven cast members and Josh Gad.
As part of the reunion, Josh Gad had cast members discuss their favorite memories from filming The Goonies , Steven Speilberg and Josh Gad gave their own Sloth impressions , and cast members read scripts and reenacted their scenes under director Richard Donner's direction.
Many were touched by Martha Plimpton's (Stef's), Ke Huy Quan's (Data's), and Corey Feldman's (Mouth's) reading of the Wishing Well scene. In the movie The Goonies, a wall in unearthed and the Goonies stumble upon an underground area glittering in coins. It looks as if they have stumbled upon buried treasure but they later realize it is the bottom of the wishing well and the treasure is an assembly of coins the hopeful have tossed from above. It is then that Corey Feldman who played Mouth makes his powerful yet sad statement.
"This one, this one right here, this was my dream, my wish, and it didn't come true. So I'm takin' it back."
