Now and Then was released in theaters exactly 20 years ago today. The coming of age film is beloved for a lot of reasons, including that you could see Devon Sawa's butt for a second. It also featured double awesome actresses by showing the same characters as cool tweens in 1970 and mature #girlbosses in 1991. And now, thanks to the perpetual passage of time, we can see what all those actresses look like 20 years after the film, just (approximately) like the time jump the characters in the film make. Trippy, dude. This is probably what Demi Moore thinks about when she gets high.

You may have noticed one person missing. Sadly, Ashleigh Aston Moore, who played young Chrissy, passed away in 2007.

Since the film has stayed so important to fans long after their crushes on Devon Sawa disintegrated into nothingness, screenwriter I. Marlene King has said she'd love to do a Now and Then TV series. And the characters would be split between their teen years and forties, so yes, the dream of seeing Kiernan Shipka and Amy Poehler play the same character could happen in our lifetime.
