Yep, he's back and although it should be a time for celebration, it looks like Wayne's return isn't exactly a happy one. It was previously reported that the synopsis for the new Honey, I Shrunk The Kids film will start with a tragedy.
The synopsis for the sequel reads as follows:
"Aware that the family ties have loosened over time but seemingly afraid to confront anyone directly. He has been tinkering alone in his attic for decades, dealing with the grief of losing his wife. When we first meet him, he has accidentally shrunk himself and is flying around on a shrunken drone — seemingly lost in a continuous of tinkering and experimenting that often puts himself and his family in jeopardy. He later reveals he shut himself away to try and invent a solution to help shrink Diane’s cancer but found it hard to cope when he ran out of time. His guilt and shame is palpable. Through the crisis of the kids getting shrunk, the truth emerges and the bonds begin to redevelop between him and his kids."
Moranis will reprise his role as Wayne while Josh Gad will portray his adult son who repeats his father's error from 1989. The sequel has not yet been given an official release date.
