After 21 years and public feuds, the cast and creators of Wayne’s World reunited for a special panel discussion.
On April 23rd, The Academy presented a special screening of Wayne’s World at the Same Goldwyn Theater in Beverley Hills. Prior to the screening, executive producer and Academy President Hawk Koch hosted a Q&A session with Mike Myers, Lorne Michaels, Dana Carvey, Rob Lowe, and director Penelope Spheeris.
The gathering was a rare event as rumors have spread over the years about feuds between the crew. Mike and Dana had a falling out after Mike allegedly stole the Dr. Evil character/voice from Dana. Mike was reportedly overbearing in the editing room with Spheeris, which supposedly led to Wayne’s World 2 being directed by Stephen Surjik. Whatever the truth is behind the rumors, the crew seemed like old friends catching up on nostalgic times.
