‘The Goonies’ Reunite in Corey Feldman’s ‘Ascension Millennium’ Video

The iconic actor’s latest music video has it all, including a cameo by Sean Astin, that brings us more than a sequel to ‘The Goonies’ could ever hope for.

Whenever a franchise has laid dormant for a number of years, the cry for a sequel or a reunion can reach deafening volumes, only to be met with a product that is derided by fans for being a worthless waist of time that taints any goodwill we had for the original. Just look at Arrested Development. Fans wanted a movie for years. When they finally got their wish in the form of 15 all-new episodes, they hated it. The magic was dead. No one knows how this works better than Corey Feldman. For years, fans wanted a The Lost Boys sequel. Twenty years later they got Lost Boys: The Tribe, and it was horrible. Two years later, Lost Boys: The Thirst wasn't quite enough to make up for it. Any way you look at it, turning The Lost Boys into a franchise was a bad idea, a waist of time and talent, and only stood to tarnish a classic 80s vampire flick.

For years, nearly thirty to be exact, we've been hearing about The Goonies 2, a sequel to 1985's cult classic The Goonies, which would reunite the entire cast. It's never come together, mainly because of cast availability and lack of a good script. If it did eventually get made, we're pretty sure it would suck anyway. Corey Feldman, who's been in the business for more than forty years, knows this a little too well. So, today, he has shared his latest music video with the entire world (formerly an MTV exclusive). Its his Ascension Millennium (an entire movement, not just a song), and it contains a cameo by Sean Astin as Mikey that is so enduring and so funny, it completely decimates any need for The Goonies 2 to ever exist. There's no way a sequel could be better than this 4 minute epic, which also includes a peek at Corey's Angels, hot pancakes, a couple of well-known celebrity friends, and one of Feldman's signature Michael Jackson dance routines (thus also eliminating the need for a Dream a Little Dream 3 or a Rock 'n' Roll High School Forever 2). Check it out in its entirety if you already haven't. You will thank us later!

The Goonies 2 is in development and stars Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman, Kerri Green, Martha Plimpton, Jonathan Ke Quan, John Matuszak. The film is directed by Richard Donner.

    I think one of the few sequels that would actually work today would be a Ferris Bueller sequel where the two main actors return but the roles are switched.

    Cory needs to stop revisiting older films and move onto other and more interesting films. He would be a great choice to be in a Martin Scorsese film or a horror like Insidious. I personally think he's trying to hard.
