22 years ago, everyone’s favorite twins Hallie Parker and Annie James first graced our screens as The Parent Trap hit theaters. A remake of the classic starring Hayley Mills, this new version gave us Lindsay Lohan playing both Hallie and Annie, twins who are raised apart as infants after their parents divorce and accidentally reunite at a summer camp. Each wanting to meet the other parent they’ve never known, the two switch places and hilarity ensues as the twins conspire to get their parents back together. The movie is considered a classic, with quotable lines and iconic characters like Hallie’s soon-to-be-stepmother Meredith Blake and Annie’s butler Martin (not to mention best surrogate mom ever Chessy).
Now, the cast of the movie has announced plans to reunite virtually for the first time to benefit World Central Kitchen. The entire cast is set to participate including Lindsay Lohan, Dennis Quaid (Nick Parker), Elaine Hendrix (Meredith Blake), Lisa Ann Walter (Chessy), Simon Kuntz (Martin), director Nancy Meyers, and producer Charles Shyer. They are also planning to honor the memory of Natasha Richardson, who played Elizabeth James and passed away in 2009. The reunion will be hosted by Katie Couric on her Instagram, premiering on July 20, so start practicing that secret handshake now!
Check out the full announcement below, and be sure to tune in!
