About a month ago The Sandlot co-writer and director David Mickey Evans announced that he was developing a sequel series that would bring back the original cast. One of the thngs he said at the time was that he sold his pitch to a streaming service. We now know that streaming service is Disney+!

The filmmaker revealed that the story would take place in 1984 and all of the characters will be adults with kids of their own. The ending of the original film offered a breakdown of what happened to all the kids when they grew up, but this series will obviously explore that a lot further.

The original cast for the series included Mike Vitar (Benjamin “Benny” Franklin Rodriguez), Patrick Renna (Hamilton “Ham” Porter), Chauncey Leopardi (Michael “Squints” Palledorous), Victor DiMattia (Timmy Timmons), Marty York (Alan “Yeah-Yeah” McClennan), Shane Obedzinski (Tommy “Repeat” Timmons), Grant Gelt (Bertram Grover Weeks), and Brandon Quintin Adams (Kenny DeNunez).

Variety also reports that Evans is working on a Sandlot prequel film with Austin Reynolds. That story is said to take place in the 1950s.

There are no other details for either of these projects to share. But, as a fan of the original film, I’m excited to see how it turns out! I’d love to see what these characters are up to in the 80s and a prequel film could also be a lot of fun!
