How can you tell when a movie is truly great? When the actors finish the film, and you just want to see them back together as if they were a real family or really friends! You want to check in with them over the years to see if they're still hanging out, keeping their signature looks, and saying the same catch phrases. ("Inconceivable!")
Well, thank God for three things: Entertainment Weekly, Good Morning America and social media. Because without them, we may never see these film cast reunions! Each year, Entertainment Weekly puts together a reunion issue, which Good Morning America usually covers on air. And for the ones that slip through the cracks - sometimes they just get together, hang out, and post their reunions themselves on Instagram!This list has some of your favorite classics from The Goonies and The Way We Were to Forrest Gump and Clueless. Granted, there's usually at least one person who opts out of the reunion photo op, but who needs Joe Pesci when you've got Goodfellas like Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro and Lorraine Bracco?! Check out this list of movie cast reunions to see pictures of some of your favorite movie casts now! Reunited and it feels so good!

Back To The Future - NOW
For the 25th anniversary, cast and crew members reunited to celebrate the milestone in 2010. There was a DeLorean time-machine cake, but noticeably missing was Crispin Glover. Apparently, Glover had legal wranglings with the filmmakers over unauthorized use of his image in the second film.
In 2018, the gang reunited again at the Fan Expo Boston. Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, and Thomas Wilson signed autographs and discussed the franchise with fans during a panel.
"This was special," Lloyd said of the reunion.
A grown up Peter Pan (Robin Williams) returned to Neverland in Hook - the Peter Pan sequel directed by Steven Spielberg in 1991. While there, he met the ragtag Lost Boys, who helped remind him of what it was like to revel in his imagination and spirit. (Oh, and saved his kids from Captain Hook.)
Actors: Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Carrie Fisher, + more
Initial Release: 1991
Directed by: Steven Spielberg
