With Disney diving into its back catalogue for multiple revivals, sequels, prequels and reboots, actor Pauly Shore recently took to Instagram to see if he get fans to put pressure on Disney to make for a sequel to “Encino Man” for Disney+

“Hit up Disney+ on social media and let them know Brendan, Sean, and myself are ready to go!” Shore said. “Let’s do this 2021.”

Following the popular response to this post, Pauly Shore made a second Instagram post encouraging fans to get in touch with Disney about a sequel.

“Encino Man” was released in 1992 and starred Brendan Fraser, Sean Astin, and Pauly Shore. It told the story of High school misfits Stoney and Dave, who discover a long-frozen primeval man buried in their back yard. But the thawed-out Link—as the boys have named him—quickly becomes a wild card in the teens’ already zany Southern California lives. After a shave and some new clothes, Link’s presence at school makes the daily drudgery a lot more interesting.

The film was renamed “California Man” in many countries throughout Europe, Asia and Australia.

The original movie isn’t yet available on Disney+ but was a box-office success when it originally released, so would you like to see a sequel or remake of “Encino Man”?

    I was going to wait and put this comment on the related YouTube video, but since you may not do one, here is my take: While the original film may not need/deserve a remake, it would be somewhat poetic for the gang to get together in 2021 to create one for release on Friday, May 20, 2022, the Friday closest to the 30th anniversary (May 22, 1992) of the release of the original
