The cast of Halloweentown reunited to celebrate Debbie Reynolds
Guys, Halloween is cool.
And you know what else is cool? The Cromwell family from the classic ’90s Disney Channel Original Movie Halloweentown about a grandmother who takes her grandchildren away for an adventure in Halloweentown, where, if you didn’t know, Halloween is celebrated all year long.At a festival this week, Marnie (Kimberly J. Brown), Sophie (Emily Roeske), Dylan (J. Paul Zimmerman), and Gwen (Judith Hoag) returned to Halloweentown — and they didn’t even have to worry about Kalabar.
“The fam bam is back together!” Brown captioned a sweet Instagram post of the Cromwells at the annual Spirit of Halloweentown festival in St. Helen, Oregon, where the first movie was shot.
Sadly though, the magical matriarch of the family wasn’t there. Debbie Reynolds, who played Grandma Aggie in the original movie and all three subsequent sequels, died almost a year ago. The reunited cast members all lovingly shared memories of their on-screen grandmother to a crowd of fans.
“This movie would not be the lasting Halloween tradition that it is without all of you,” Hoag, who played Reynolds’ daughter, said to the crowd, Comicbook reports. “It was an honor to do these movies and it was a huge honor to work with the absolutely incredible, iconic, unbelievable, creative, talented Debbie Reynolds.”
When Brown first announced the family reunion, she teased that there would be a special tribute to the friendliest witch there ever was when the family came together, saying, “We wanted to do a special tribute to her and her role as Grandma Aggie and have a small monument set up there for her, so we’re going to do that this year during the lighting ceremony.”
