Reunited, and it Feels So Good

Of all the wonderfully upbeat, feel-good and amusing things to come out of quarantine, Josh Gad’s Reunited Apart has been the surprise sleeper YouTube series I didn’t know I needed. For those who have not yet had the pleasure of checking it out, let me break it down for you…
Everyone’s favorite animated snowman brings back together the casts of iconic favorite movies of all time for a social-distancing-approved virtual reunion comprised of memories and merriment. With a seeming sweet spot for 80’s flicks, thus far the episodes have reassembled the film casts of movies including Splash, Back to the Future, Goonies and (arguably the best of the best) Ghostbusters! It obviously goes without saying that anything featuring Bill Murray is a win no matter what.
While seeing quarantined cult movie celebs is already enough to make anyone’s day, the best part about the series is the charity spotlight included at the start of each episode. Josh is using this popular platform to draw attention (and encourage donations) to a variety of organizations that are dedicated to helping those most in need during the currently trying times. Some of the worthy groups of focus thus far have included the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, Project Hope, Dig Deep, No Kid Hungry, and the Equal Justice Initiative.
So if you’re looking for an entertaining distraction that will appeal to your inner pop culture/film nerd, look no further than Reunited Apart, and donate to a good cause while you’re at it!
