The Goonies tells the tale of five young adventurers who make their way through booby traps and escaped murderers to find the lost treasure of One-Eyed Willie. It is a swashbuckling adventure filled with laughter and excitement! The boys don't know what they are getting into when they go up in the Walsh's attic that day.

This movie was made thirty years ago in 1985! So what have these boys been up to? What do they look like now?


Corey Feldman played the snarky know-it-all named Mouth in The Goonies. He has many other movies and roles under his belt, one of which includes Slash in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So what does our young friend look like today?


He has one child and is also a spokesperson for PETA when he isn't acting. He has always felt strongly about animal rights. According to his IMDb page HERE, he has been a vegetarian since he was 13. This is why he helps the PETA. He recently had a small part in the movie Sharknado 3.


Our chubby friend is the walking disaster. They use him to get the map from behind the glass case. All they had to do was hand Chunk the frame and wait for him to drop it. The poor kid...

Anyway, what does Jeff Cohen look like today?

Oh goodness!! This one really shocked me when I looked up the former cast. The last movie he was seen in was 1991's Perfect Harmony. He is now an attorney and writer.


Josh Brolin plays Mikey's older brother. He, his girlfriend, and her friend travel with the other Goonies to the treasure. This one surprised me, because I did not connect this young teenager with a villain from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Meet Thanos, Marvel's big bad villain. He has also been part of many movies as a law-enforcement officer, or other authoritative positions. He played George W. Bush in the movie W. and also in a Jimmy Kimmel Live! episode. This is what the young body-builder has been up to today.


The group's techie brings all his gadgets to the trip. He was also Short Round in Indiana Jones: Temple of Doom. He hasn't done much since then, but here is his now photo.

Jonathan Ke Quan has been a singer and a stunt coordinator since his last movie in 2002.



Sean Astin was the protagonist of our story. He found the map which lead them to the treasure. As you probably know, Sean Astin has been in many movies. There are two movies that he has been in that I just loved, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and Mom's Night Out.

So what does this little treasure hunter look like today?

I love the beard. The beard is awesome.

So this is what happened to the Goonies after 30 years. Some of them decided against continuing their acting careers, but some kept down that path. It was interesting to look up the pictures of these small kids to see what they look like today!


Which change shocked you the most?
