It’s officially comic con season, and one of Florida’s largest geek conventions returns with a star-studded lineup Thursday.

MegaCon Orlando returns to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando May 16-19. This year’s celebrity lineup includes nostalgic reunions from Back to the Future, Boy Meets World, The Goonies and The Lost Boys.

The convention announced last week that the original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, will be meeting guests, signing autographs and hosting the “This Life: My Music, My Story” evening with a Q&A session and live music.

Back to the Future stars reuniting next month include Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Tom Wilson and James Tolkan. The Boy Meets World reunion includes Danielle Fishel, Ben Savage, Will Friedle and Rider Strong.

And we can’t forget about iconic The Goonies stars Sean Astin, Corey Feldman and Ke Huy Quan reuniting in Orlando next month.

The “All New” Mickey Mouse Club also celebrates its 30th anniversary at MegaCon by reuniting Mouseketeers from its seven seasons. The reunion show on May 18 is hosted by Joey Fatone of N*SYNC followed by an autograph session.

Other celebrity guests appearing next month include Zachary Levi (Shazam!), David Tennant and Billie Piper (Doctor Who), Patrick Warburton (A Series of Unfortunate Events) and Kiefer Sutherland (The Lost Boys, Designated Survivor).
