Josh Brolin, Sean Astin, Martha Plimpton, Corey Feldman, Kerri Green, Jonathan Ke Quan, Jeff Cohen, Joe Pantoliano, and Robert Davi will take part in an online gathering to re-enact scenes from the 1985 film to benefit the organisation No Kid Hungry.

The virtual event follows a cast reunion, hosted by Josh Gad, in April (20).

"Millions of kids in America rely on the meals they receive at school for the nutrition they need," Tom Nelson, president and CEO of Share Our Strength, which is staging the collaboration, says. "With more students learning virtually than ever before and with record jobs and wages lost, an unprecedented number of kids are going hungry during this crisis.

"Amidst this increased need and an uncertain school year, kids need our support more than ever. We're grateful to the cast of The Goonies, Warner Bros., Warner Media and those tuning in to the reunion special to help ensure kids have access to the food they need."

The event will be available to stream for free, with donations encouraged on 5 December at 8pm ET.
