Goonies Sequel to be Comic Book Miniseries
  |  @   |  

Wizard has an exclusive first look at Goonies: The Search for Sloth, the comic book sequel to the 1985 movie, Goonies.

Teaming up to write the 5-issue miniseries are Goonies director Richard Donner and his long-time collaborator and protégé Geoff Johns (writer for DC Comics miniseries Infinite Crisis and its weekly spin-off 52).

Goonies, which had a screenplay by Chris Columbus with a story by Steven Spielberg, followed a group of kids trying to save a part of town called the “Goon Docks” from demolition. They head off on an adventure to find the buried treasure of a legendary pirate named One-Eyed Willie and it’s on this quest that the “Goonies” are introduced to a gentle giant named Sloth.

Goonies: The Search for Sloth picks up several years after the end of the movie. While some of the “Goonies” are in high school and others are in college, they are no longer working as a group. When one of the old gang finds out that Sloth has gone missing under suspicious circumstances, the “Goonies” reform to save the giant.

The sequel comic book is tentatively scheduled for a late summer launch.

Donner recently told EW that a movie sequel is unlikely, but that he’s discussed with Spielberg the prospect of adapting the original movie into a musical.


  1. Oh, sigh… Goonies, The College Years? I think the likelihood of Chunk’s being interested in Sloth’s whereabouts once Chunk discovers the joys of pizza and beer are slim-to-none.

  5. Whats worse is that I heard Donner talking about it and apparently the whole thing has to do with how Sloth is actually a hairless Sasquatch. I kid you not. Thanks god this IS in comic book form. That way we can discard it as soon as the last issue hits the stands.
