Goonies-Themed TV Series Lands at Disney+

A Warner Bros.-produced television series inspired by the classic 1985 adventure film The Goonies is currently in the works at Disney+.

For some time, Warner Bros. Television has been developing "Untitled Film Re-Enactment Project," a drama series about a teacher who helps her students re-enact the original Goonies film shot-for-shot. Writer Sarah Watson adapted the concept into a pilot for Fox, though the network ultimately passed on the project.

As first reported by Variety, the Goonies-inspired series is now being redeveloped at Disney+ under the title Our Time. The Donners' Company and Amblin Entertainment are both involved with the project, with the aforementioned Watson serving as an executive producer. Our Time's other executive producers include The Jackal Group's Gail Berman and Hend Baghdady, Amblin TV's Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey and, of course, Lauren Shuler Donner and the late Richard Donner.

"Sarah worked nonstop to deliver this incredible script, we had our table read, and then the world shut down for COVID," said Warner Bros. TV Executive Vice President and Head of Development Clancy Collins White. "So we came back many months later and finished the beautiful pilot, and it was an incredible cast, but unfortunately a little bit too young for Fox. And so we immediately swung into high gear and hit the town with it. We did not yet have anything in development at Disney+. It's been another example of being able to carve a pathway where there wasn't one by virtue of a great story, a great pilot, a great series. The deal has taken a while to make, but we're really excited to be moving forward."

Produced by Amblin Entertainment and distributed by Warner Bros., The Goonies originally hit theaters on June 7, 1985. Directed by Richard Donner from a script by Chris Columbus and a story by Steven Spielberg, the film follows a group of kids who embark on a quest to find the hidden treasure of a legendary pirate named One-Eyed Willy, all while being pursued by a family of criminals. The film starred the likes of Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman, Kerri Green, Martha Plimpton and Ke Huy Quan, among others.

Our Time is currently in development at Disney+.
