Without a doubt, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3D is hands-down a classic. It’s rather over-the-top, features a lot of bright colors, mostly takes place on Planet Drool, and gave us the bop that is Sharkboy’s “Dream Song.” So you know, a real gem. And one of the movie’s main stars, Taylor Lautner himself, is ready for another film. Yes, we’re being serious!
See, long before Tay stole hearts as the werewolf Jacob Black in The Twilight Saga, he played Sharkboy in the 2005 fantasy flick when he was still a tween himself. So when a fan submitted a question on his Instagram Stories asking if he would be down for a Sharkboy and Lavagirl remake, he gave an honest response. And he’s all about it! “Umm, duh,” the 26-year-old actor wrote back, along with an epic throwback pic of himself and his leading lady, Lavagirl herself Taylor Dooley.
Okay, but like can we legit make this a reality now? Taylor D is actually still really close with the Lautner fam, as Tay’s younger sister Makena, is good friends with Taylor D and she was even a bridesmaid in Taylor’s wedding. As for the former Lavagirl, well she is a bit busy at the moment since she, her husband, and their young son Jack announced she is pregnant again and they’re adding another adorable bundle of joy to their family, a daughter. The 25-year-old has posted throwback pics from her Lavagirl days on her IG before, so it’s obvious the movie and role both forever hold a special place in her heart too. Another one of their former co-stars, Sasha Pieterse, we know is filming for her upcoming show Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, but we have a feeling she wouldn’t be opposed to heading back to her ice princess roots. Seriously, some sort of remake of this movie would be nothing short of iconic and we’re ready for it to happen, please and thanks.
