No one can deny that The Parent trap was a super hit romantic comedy film made in 1998 that is fun to watch even today. It gave a kick-start to Lindsay Lohan’s acting career as a child artist. To mark the 22nd anniversary of the movie’s release, the cast and crew of the film held a virtual reunion on Instagram on Monday. The reunion was moderated by Katie Couric.
Katie Couric announced the reunion on her Instagram on Sunday. Excitedly she wrote, “Boy, do @nmeyers and I have a treat for you! We got the cast of the Parent Trap together again for the first time since 1998. The full episode will premiere exclusively on my Instagram TOMORROW at 9 AM ET. Make sure to mark your calendars – you won’t want to miss this!! 🤗 #parenttrapreunion”
The reunion featured stars Lindsay Lohan, Dennis Quaid, Elaine Hendrix, Lisa Ann Walter, and Simon Kunz, as well as director Nancy Meyers. This is the first time after 22 years that we saw everyone together for an event since the movie’s release in July 1998.
After the reunion, Katie Couric put the reunion video on her Instagram. She wrote, After chatting with @nmeyers during an IG Live – we decided that we should try and see if we could pull off getting the Parent Trap gang back together again for the first time since 1998 — and guess what, we really did it!!
The Parent Trap is a remake of the 1961 movie of the same name. It is an adaptation of a German novel Lottie and Lisa which was written by Erich Kästner in 1949. What are your views on the reunion? Do let us know!
