It's official: the original cast of The Sandlot are returning for an exciting project that's sure to be a home run for fans of the 1993 coming-of-age movie that became a cult favorite.

Moviegoers fell in love with Scottie Smalls (Thomas Guiry) and his new group of young baseball-playing friends who get into mischief during the summer of 1962 in California's San Fernando Valley.

Although the film spawned two direct-to-video sequels, The Sandlot 2 (2005) and The Sandlot: Heading Home (2007), only James Earl Jones returned to reprise his role in the first sequel as Mr. Mertle who owned "the Beast" – a ginormous English Mastiff that became a hilarious suburban legend.


David Mickey Evans, who co-wrote and directed The Sandlot, revealed to the baseball podcast The Rain Delay that the beloved movie will be adapted for television as a reboot.

"I just sold a Sandlot television show. We're about to get an order for the first two seasons."


Evans didn't reveal which streaming service the show will be available on; however, he did throw us a curve-ball.

"I know who's going to stream it. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out right now."
"I already got all the original cast members back. It takes place in 1984, when they're all, like, 33 years old and they all have children of their own, and that's all I can tell you."

Fans are batting up for the exciting reunion.






The movie's appeal is timeless.



Will expectations be met?





It was a long time coming for ardent fans.


The announcement comes a year after the movie celebrated its 25th anniversary during which cast members Patrick Renna (Hamilton "Ham" Porter), Tom Guiry (Scotty Smalls), and Chauncey Leopardi (Michael "Squints" Palledorous) reunited at Dodger Stadium in Los Angles.




Cast members waxed nostalgia during a special 25th anniversary reunion with Today.

Release dates for both the prequel and the TV reboot are forthcoming.

Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:
