“Right after making this movie I went and followed The Grateful Dead for like three or four years and that was my Grateful Dead lot name: Hollywood,” Katz told E! News. “Everybody used to say, ‘What’s up, Hollywood?!'”

The young trio from the film—Katz, Shaw and Birch—have remained close throughout the years, especially after reuniting for the 20th Anniversary at the Walt Disney Studio Lot in 2013. “It was like, ‘Oh wait, we love each other, why aren’t we hanging out?!'” Shaw said. “[We] went out for dinner one Halloween, it was perfect. We’re still connected after that.”
