If you think about it, who would have taken better advantage of staying home from school during a pandemic than Ferris Bueller? (That’s some pretty good social distancing in the above museum image). In advance of its 35th anniversary next year, the cast of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is one of many groups that have reunited for fans in such an unprecedented way this summer in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. These great panel discussion events are a good start at sharing some positive vibes right when everyone needs it. It’s like a year long comic-con. This Ferris reunion definitely belongs on the top shelf of what not to miss. This event was part of Josh Gad’s Reunited Apart videos. The upbeat actor hosts Ferris himself, Matthew Broderick, along with co-stars Alan Ruck (Cameron) with great COVID hair, Mia Sara (Sloane), Jennifer Grey (Jeanie), Cindy Pickett (Mom), Lyman Ward (Dad), and some charming bits from Ben Stein (Ferris’s econ teacher).
Plus, watch for some surprise guests.
By way of trivia, we’re thinking that’s a quick shot of either Mia Sara’s husband Brian Henson (son of The Muppets’ Jim Henson) or her son Dashiell Connery (grandson of Sean Connery), helping with her video set-up.
Other than maybe Caddyshack and Stripes, can you think of a more quoted movie from the 1980s? Revisit it all over again on YouTube here:
