“Top that” is still a mantra for die-hard Teen Witch fans who cherish Louise Miller and her antics as a teenage sorceress. Now, the stars of the film have reunited, with teen witch herself Robyn Lively posting a series of Instagram pics that challenge all other film reunions to #TopThat.
Robyn Lively, Dan Gauthier, Joshua John Miller, Lisa Fuller, and Mandy Ingber posed for a selfie, looking remarkably unchanged since they appeared on screen together in the late ’80s. Magic really seems to be afoot in this gang.
Released in 1989, at the advent of the mystical teenage phenomenon that would be Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the film skyrocketed past critical scrutiny to become a cult classic. The story of a seemingly ordinary and unnoticed girl who develops magical powers, the film also featured a colorful cast of characters, including her Rodney Dangerfield-esque little brother Richie, who spends a portion of the movie as a puppy. (“A dog, Louise! Ya made me a dog!”)
Fans can also rejoice that the Louise and Polly friendship has stood the test of time; in another Instagram, Lively poses with her costar Mandy Ingber, who is now a successful celebrity yoga instructor and author.
Teen Witch was originally created to be a female-driven version of the Michael J. Fox hit Teen Wolf. MTV’s Teen Wolf reboot TV series has become a cultural hit; perhaps it’s time for Teen Witch to hit the small screen?
