For those of us who grew up with Mrs. Doubtfire and a world without twitter, it was bizarre to see our old world and new world collide when Mrs. Doubtfire became a trending topic on twitter over the last 24 hours.
Brace your 12 year old self for some potentially great news. Mrs. Doubtfire 2 might be coming to a theater near you…sooner than you ever imagined. Both Robin Williams (who starred in the film) and Chris Columbus (who directed it) have signed on to the project, although some news sources are reporting that it may be too soon to tell if the film will actually be made. We have mixed feelings about this.
On the one hand, we love the idea of Robin Williams starring in a new comedy. On the other hand, 1993 called and they’re like, “Hey 2014, remember that movie, Mrs. Doubtfire, that you all loved so much, well you're about to ruin it.” 1993 was a simpler time when a man who cross dressed to hang out with his children seemed a lot less...illegal.
So let’s see how fans are reacting on twitter.
There are those rejoicing.

Mrs. Doubtfire 2 is "in the works." There is a God.— Rich (@RAKcity27) April 17, 2014
Others are still working out their feelings.
Just saw the news about a 'Mrs. Doubtfire' sequel. I will be issuing a statement later with my feelings. #ohnodear— Michelle Beadle (@MichelleDBeadle) April 17, 2014
Of course, there are doubters.
I love Mrs Doubtfire and the fact they're doing a sequel makes me sad. They'll just ruin it✋— (@kieeefy) April 17, 2014
There’s always that one guy who’s like, “I totally predicted this.”
There's a Mrs. Doubtfire 2 in the works and I tweeted this just over a year ago. Can't wait to collect my royalties. pic.twitter.com/rJn2AxdJxr— Korey Kuhl (@koreykuhl) April 17, 2014
And then there are the reactions that, thanks to twitter, we get to enjoy.
