In early 2019, actor Josh Gad pitched to Disney an idea for a film set 30 years after the original Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. On May 13, 2019, it was confirmed that Disney and Mandeville Films are developing a new Honey, I Shrunk the Kids film. Titled Shrunk, the film will be produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman and written by Todd Rosenberg, with Gad set to star as Nick Szalinski and the film being set to be released threatically, as Rosenberg's script was reported to have "elicited enthusiasm from [executives]". The project was described as a "legacy-sequel", with the film being set 30 years after the events of the first film. On December 5, 2019, it was reported that Joe Johnston, who directed the first film, is in talks to return for Shrunk. On February 3, 2020, it was confirmed that Johnston will return as director, while Gad, Ryan Dixon, Ian Helfer, and Jay Reiss were revealed to have worked on the film's story. On February 12, 2020, it was confirmed that Rick Moranis will appear in the film, reprising his role as Wayne Szalinski from the previous films. The film marks Moranis' first film role since Disney's 2006 direct-to-video film Brother Bear 2, his first theatrical role since 2003's Brother Bear, and Moranis' first live-action theatrical role since Warner Bros.'s 1996 film Big Bully.
Filming for Shrunk was set to begin in early 2020. It will be shot in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and Atlanta, Georgia, USA. However, the film was put on hold due to concerns following the COVID-19 pandemic.
