Posted on

You are a mere 90 hours away from your first return visit to Camp Firewood in 14 years, and to mark this completely arbitrary designation of time, Netflix has released another peek at Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. This three-minute preview sneaks you behind-the-scenes — including to the very first day of shooting — so you can see all the fun and mischief that the original gang had while reuniting for their follow-up to the 2001 cult indie Wet Hot American Summer

Watch the video video to see Bradley Cooper marvel that “Paul Rudd looks exactly the same,” and Amy Poehler quip: “Working on this just feels like when we shot Wet Hot — it was really cold, we’re moving really fast and everybody’s having sex with each other.” Want to hear from new cast members like Chris Pine, John Slattery, Jason Schwartzman, and Lake Bell while dressed in character? That’s in here, too. Press play to be transported back to the summer of ’81.
