Earlier this year, we found out that the Cromwell family from Halloweentown would be getting back together! The day finally arrived and it looks like it was epic. The original announcement was made by actress Kimberly J. Brown, who played Marnie in Halloweentown—one of our favorite Disney Channel movies ever. Check it out:
According to Kimberly, cast members journeyed back to the city of St. Helens, Oregon, where Halloweentown was filmed, for the city’s annual Spirit of Halloweentown festival. The Spirit of Halloweentown is a celebration that brings to life the iconic town square from the Halloweentown movie. It even includes the giant jack o’lantern! Remember this?The cast gathered to honor the late Debbie Reynolds, who played Grandma Aggie in the film. They joined the lighting ceremony as festival goers said a spell from the movie while the giant pumpkin was lit up.

Debbie lived her life like all of us should, to the fullest. She was bold, funny, and had the biggest heart.
Her sparkly smile warmed every room she was in, and her jokes about her amazing career and life would make your stomach hurt with laughter.
Making people happy through her performing was her favorite thing to do, and she showed me at a young age what a gift it is to be able to do that for people. She was so talented and wise, which easily could have gone to her head, but instead she went out of her way to help others shine as brightly as they could. She’d try to move huge ladders on set just to help the crew, and looked out for every actor no matter the size their role. Her humility, grace, and care for others inspired me so much as a teen and is something that will always stay with me. “Being normal is vastly overrated” is a quote from “Halloweentown,” and how fitting it is that her character spoke it. Her generosity, talent, and loving spirit made her anything but normal. Thanks for the magic, Debbie. Rest in peace.
