Sean Astin Teases One-Eyed Willy's Return in GOONIES Sequel
Over the past couple of years, there's been a lot of talk regarding a sequel to The Goonies. That talk has been coming from people like Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, and even director Richard Donner, all of whom have said the movie is going to happen. You can read up on all of our Goonies related news here.
Astin continues to say that The Goonies 2 is going to happen. Over the weekend, he appeared at Phoenix Comic Con 2016, and while he was there he teased that the sequel will include another appearance from the legendary pirate One-Eyed Willy. During the actor's panel which you can watch below, he said:
"In the original Goonies, it's not the only time Mikey will come face-to-face with One-Eyed Willy."
I would really love to see this sequel to The Goonies happen. Astin seems very optimistic, so that's a good sign that things are still progressing with it. It will also be cool to see how One-Eyed Willy will be implemented into the story for the sequel.
Personally, I've always wanted to see a 17th century-set film that tells the story of One-Eyed Willy and the events that led up to him, his crew, and his treasure being trapped in the cave where the Goonies found him. There's a great story to tell with this character! It'd be a shame if it never happened.
Regardless, it seems like a Goonies sequel is still slowly in the works, so hopefully, one day that happens.
