The Cromwell family from Halloweentown is getting back together! That’s right! This amazing announcement was made today by actress Kimberly J. Brown, who played Marnie in Halloweentown—one of our favorite Disney Channel movies ever. Check it out:
Isn’t this incredible? According to Kimberly, cast members will be journeying 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 is gathering to honor the late Debbie Reynolds, who played Grandma Aggie in the film. They’ll be joining the lighting ceremony as festival goers say a spell from the movie while the giant pumpkin is lit up. What a perfect tribute! According to Kimberly J. Brown, in attendance at this year’s festival will be J. Paul Zimmerman (who played Marnie’s brother Dylan), Judith Hoag (who played their mother, Gwen). Emily Roeske (who played Sophie) will do her best to attend as well.

What do you say about a woman who had such an impact on your life both professionally and personally? 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.
