As the republic continues to crumble, nostalgia has never been more in.
This is exemplified by the theatre marquee at Edwards Cinema which features a list of movies that will have you checking the date to make sure you're in the right decade.
Devon Sawa—himself a 90s heartthrob—tweeted the image with the caption:
"Dear children of today: Like it or not, you're really 90s kids."

The films are still a little different than their original counterparts: Pixar's animation has grown by leaps and bounds since the original Toy Story's release in 1995, Aladdin is a live-action remake, This decade's Child's Play revolves around technology rather than voodoo, and Men in Black now features a woman as the lead.
Nevertheless, the marquee had people hella disoriented.

@DevonESawa @grantwarkentin It's like 1997 all over again. All we need is torrential rain at the Glastonbury Festival and- ...oh.— Jay Bluff (@Jay Bluff)1561570070.0
Some lamented that the nostalgia is actually a lack of originality.
@DevonESawa ....huh. We’re denying a generation their own formative pop culture experiences, instead forcing them… https://t.co/Op7Qk1kBj7— Asherd the D&D Character (@Asherd the D&D Character)1561519298.0

@DevonESawa @MaraWilson Showing how original cinema has become and how much they’re really hanging on to that “Millenial nostalgia” 👍🏻— McKell Forbes (@McKell Forbes)1561523291.0
If that doesn't overwhelm you, The Lion King will be arriving to theatres next month.
