Even since the huge success of the 1985 movie The Goonies, there has been a lot of talk about the potential of a sequel being made, with fans calling for The Goonies 2 to be made for decades now. Every time we seem to get a little bit closer to The Goonies 2 becoming a reality, something happens which sends the project back into development hell.
Back in April this year, director Richard Donner confirmed that he and Steven Spielberg were working on a story for The Goonies 2 and were hoping to get as many of the original cast back together as possible. While we are huge fans of The Goonies and would love to see the original cast back for The Goonies 2, we can't help be feel that the movie would take that something special away from the originals.
There is also the fact that Steven Spielberg loves to put aliens in everything, which is not always a good thing. Just take a look at the movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. By making that movie have a strong alien story line, it felt like it was taking something away from the original Indiana Jones films, which is what we can see happening with The Goonies 2.
There are no real details on the story of The Goonies 2 yet but we cannot help but think that Steven Spielberg is going to make aliens a huge part of the story. We can see it being based on the kids of the original characters, who are told a legendary tale of an alien landing and go off in search of the lost spacecraft. Let's just hope that we are way off base here and Spielberg has learned his lesson about aliens.
