Way back in the mists of time, in a more innocent age (2011), a little movie called Goon came out. Scripted by regular Seth Rogen collaborators Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, it starred Sean William Scott as a brawny-but-simple bar bouncer who, thanks to his preternatural ability for taking a beating, finds himself drafted into a local failing ice hockey team. Despite sounding like a slightly gonzo version of an awful and schmaltzy live-action Disney sports movie, Goon was fucking awesome. Both filthy funny and unexpectedly sweet, it was criminally under-seen at the time. Sean William Scott played the hulking protagonist Doug exactly right, and there was real pathos in his struggle to belong and genuine empathy-grounded satisfaction in watching his arc play out.

So we all watched the movie, and loved it, delighted by a genuine hidden gem.

Then, silence.

Then, over a year ago, we got confirmation that Goon 2 would be happening!

Then, silence.

Now, as if to bring sweet maple-y balm to soothe our troubled souls, Jay Baruchel has dropped the news on us:

Huzzah!

Goon gif party!
