On June 23 “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” was released…

On June 23, 1989 25 years ago, Disney released “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.” The science-fiction family film focused on an inventor who accidentally shrunk both his kids, and his neighbor’s, using a shrinking ray. They subsequently find themselves the size of 1/4 of an inch, lost in their backyard, and facing various dangers (i.e. encountering insects). The film, starring Rick Moranis, was a box office success, grossing over $220 million worldwide, and spawning two sequels (1992’s “Honey, I Blew Up the Kid” and 1997’s “Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves”), while receiving positive reviews from critics.
