Mara Wilson, who played Natalie Hillard in “Mrs. Doubtfire,” reacted to the announcement of a sequel on her Twitter. Though she does not identify herself as an actress these days, she is also known for her roles in movies such as “Matilda” and “Miracle on 34th Street.”

Wilson, now 26, began explaining to her followers over Twitter the reasons in which she did not want to reprise her role in the sequel. Responses to tweets then ensued.

Wilson continued:

As Wilson trended on Facebook later, she also tweeted this:

She ended her Facebook post by saying “Whoever chooses these trending topics needs to get their stuff together.”

Reactions to the sequel itself ranged from excitement to skepticism, especially since the original came out over 20 years ago (This is not the only ’90s movie that has announced a sequel recently–“Dumb and Dumber To” is to be released later this year).

The only confirmed original cast so far are Robin Williams coming back as the lead Mrs. Doubtfire, along with Chris Columbus directing the movie.

The original movie brought in over $219 million and is still a classic comedy. No one really knows how good the sequel would be until a little more information is released. It would be interesting to see what kind of a storyline Williams would come up with and even the previous actors expressed their skepticism.

Both Wilson, who expressed her feelings over Twitter, and Lisa Jakub, who played Lydia Hillard, said how unsure they were about what kind of storyline they could possibly make. According to TMZ, Matthew Lawrence, who played Chris Hillard, is all on board for a sequel. “Of course I would be on board. I hope they make the second as good as the first. The first was so good.”

While it’s obviously Wilson’s decision not to reprise her role as Natalie in the sequel, it’s kind of a strange reaction for first of all not even being asked yet and not even knowing what the script looks like. For all we know, the second one could be a total success, who knows? Yes, it’s completely her decision but it is weird how strongly she would knock on it before having much information on it. Heh, “kid’s” say the darnedest things…

What do you think of Wilson’s reaction to the film’s sequel?
