Three former child stars reunited to celebrate the anniversary of their beloved movie Mrs. Doubtfire. Matthew Lawrence, Lisa Jakub and Mara Wilson came together in San Francisco to reminisce about portraying siblings in the Robin Williams film and perhaps open up about the experience in a podcast.

Mrs. Doubtfire came out in 1993 and followed Williams’ character Daniel as he struggled to remain close to his kids after separating from his wife Miranda (Sally Field). Eventually, he decides to dress up in drag and become an English nanny named Mrs. Doubtfire as a way to be around his kids every day without his ex knowing.

The movie remains a classic Williams comedy after he passed away in 2014. It did quite well in theaters and earned an Oscar for Best Makeup for Williams’ elaborate costume and makeup. During their reunion, Wilson shared a photo of the trio and teased that they reunited to record an episode of Lawrence’s Brotherly Love podcast, which he hosts with his brothers and fellow actors Joey and Andy Lawrence.
