It’s time to visit Halloweentown… again!
Remember when Disney Channel had the best movies of all time. My personal favorites were definitely the Halloweentown movies with Marnie and Grandma Aggie.
That’s why I’m so excited that that Kimberly J. Brown, who plays Marnie, announced that the original cast/family are returning to St. Helens, Oregon for the annual Halloweentown festivities this year.
The big family reunion is to pay respects to the late, Debbie Reynolds.
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.
You can join the ceremony, too! It will be Saturday, October 14th so you better plan that road trip to Oregon now.
