Twenty-five years ago, on November 24, Mrs. Doubtfire hit theaters and became an instant classic. The film, starring Robin Williams who, while caught up in a messy divorce, tries to spend more time with his children by posing as their elderly British nanny, also featured adorable performances by his three onscreen children and Pierce Brosnan (in one of his earlier roles) as their mother's new boyfriend. To celebrate the film's 25th anniversary, Brosnan and the "kids" met up for a reunion!
Lisa Jakub, who played Lydia, the eldest Hillard child, posted a photo of the family back together on Twitter!
So this just happened. #mrsdoubtfire #reunion #25yearslater https://t.co/Xa8LoUVNIE— Lisa Jakub (@Lisa Jakub)1540418892.0
She also posted a video of Brosnan in full-on dad-mode:
In the video, Brosnan can be heard saying:
Here you go: at the premiere of Mrs. Doubtfire and here we are, we pull back slowly, tada!" Brosnan could be heard saying as he showed how the three actors had grown from their child star days. Love you, love you all so much. So good to be a part of your lives. I want to get into the picture as well.
Jakub had teased the upcoming reunion in an Instagram video the day prior. Standing in an airport, she addressed her followers, saying:
So I feel like I pretty much live in hotels and airports these days. So hi from another airport," she said in the video. "I am on my way to Los Angeles and I am doing that because of a certain significant anniversary that is coming up next month and, uh, a couple of fake siblings that I used to have.
The reunion pics gave many fans just the pick-me-up they needed during a hard day:
