Honey, we have another reboot coming. 

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids could be making a comeback thanks to Disney. 

Multiple outlets report that Disney is in negotiations with original director Joe Johnston to helm another installment of the Shrunk film franchise.

The new iteration was pitched to Disney by Josh Gad earlier this year, and the studio jumped on board the idea, but have yet to officially greenlight the project.

The original 1989 pic starred Rick Moranis as Wayne Szalinski, a scientist and father who accidentally shrinks his son and daughter, along with the two brothers from next door. When they are thrown out with the trash, the four kids must travel through their backyard to return home. 

According to Variety, in the new film 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.
