Bringing Back The Parent Trip

Caged Bird

By Maya Angelou

The free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wings in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings with fearful trill of the things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom.

Remember The Parent Trap? Of course, you do, because it’s a completely unforgettable movie. So how does a Parent Trap reunion sound to you?  Well, if you were to ask Annie James, it would be excellent.  And if you ask us? Also excellent. The director of the ionic 1998 movie, Nancy Meyers recently took it to Instagram to share an epic throwback picture of herself, together with adorable little Lindsay Lohan, the star of the classic movie that played not one role, but two. Meyers posted the nostalgic and powerful picture with a seriously fascinating caption saying-  “I have some #ParentTrap news to share next week. #ItsGoingToBeFun,”.

And while it surely made fans incredibly excited thinking that it meant there was more to come, she made a point of adding to her caption that there won’t be a sequel, unfortunately. Nonetheless, her caption got everyone’s blood pumping, coming up with all kinds of theories as to what could possibly be up her sleeve, with most people convinced that there’s going to be some sort of Parent Trap reunion! Others are also under the impression that a remake of the movie will be released. Either way – they both sound excellent, although a remake would probably fill our hearts a little more.

Lindsay Lohan herself is believed to be on board with whatever’s in store – and that’s backed up by the fact that she shared an article about Meyer’s mysterious post on her Twitter account. Rumor also has it that Lohan is also really keen on the idea of returning to playing Mean Girls Cady Heron, another one of her most iconic and memorable roles of all time. And while Mean Girls 2 might be a highly far fetched dream, at least we know some kind of Parent Trap treat is right around the corner. But if we could take a vote, we’re in favor of it all.
