The Sandlot Is Getting A Prequel



Personally, if the Beast is the focus, this feels like giving us the origin of a character that doesn’t need one. I understand The Sandlot name is needed for the brand recognition, but I would have liked to see a reboot that showed a different neighborhood and different baseball team on an entirely new quest or mystery versus just showing another facet of the one we already know. Despite that, The Sandlot works because of its humor, heart and fun cast, and as long as a prequel film gets the dynamic of the kids right, it will work. Plus, seeing the Beast as a puppy is an easy sell.
