Okay, I haven’t seen The Wizard in probably 15 years and I’m sure it doesn’t hold up, but in junior high school… I thought it was a pretty cool flick. While not much more than a 90-miniute commercial for Nintendo and the launch of Super Mario Bros. 3, I was still hooked. So, I’m more than just mildly intrigued that Ain’t It Cool News has announced plans for an Austin reunion by the director and two co-stars of the 1989 film.
On Friday, December 7, The Wizard director Todd Holland will be joined by stars Luke Edwards and Fred Savage at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz. At press time, no scheduled appearance by their co-star (and current Rilo Kiley singer) Jenny Lewis. But these three are plenty. Add to this the fact that December 7 is also the night before Butt-Numb-A-Thon 9, and you have the makings of one helluva dorky-cool weekend. Refresh your “Power Glove” memories, with the trailer for the film:
