TV and movie nostalgia is all too real these days, so thankfully we live in an age where Hollywood respects fans' wants and needs.

As soon as we heard Halloweentown was a real place, and by that we mean St. Helen's, Oregon, exists (the city where the famous Disney movie was shot), we freaked out. Because 1) Halloweentown is an incredible movie and 2) A festival that celebrates the cult classic is just awesome.

But we didn't think it could get any better than finding out about Spirit of Halloweentown, the annual event that pays homage to the film. Lo and behold, we were wrong—it does get better! Original Halloweentown star Kimberley J. Brown announced that she'll be traveling to Oregon to kickoff the annual festival!

That's right—Marnie is going back to Halloweentown. "On Oct. 10, I'm going to dust off the old broom, pull out my witch's cloak and fly on up to Halloweentown and kick off the festivities for the month," she said in a video posted on YouTube.

And she's not just showing up, either! She's also in charge of lighting the jack-o-lantern because if you're going to do Halloweentown you have to do it right. "I am honored, not only that St. Helen's does this for the movie…but that they asked me up to celebrate the film."

Naturally, everyone is freaking out about the news, which was also shared on Facebook.


Another posted, "OKAY!!! I just about DIED!!!!!! That's the DAY I will be there. A happy dance is in order!!!!!!!"

"EEEEKKKKK! Childhood dreams! So excited to go this year!" commented another.

Twitter wasn't any less chill about it.

Now let's all pretend like the Halloweentown recast never happened.
