Mrs. Doubtfire children look unrecognizable as they reunite with Robin Williams 30 years after the cult film

THE adorable kids from ’90s hit Mrs Doubtfire have been reunited for 30 years.

The iconic comedy – starring the late Robin Williams – was released in 1993 and became an instant box office hit.

It tells the story of Robin Williams’ character, Daniel, who disguises himself as a Scottish nanny to look after his children after his divorce from his mother.

And it was at a convention celebrating all things ’90s when the child stars got back together.

Lisa Jakub, who played eldest sister Lydia, Matthew Lawrence, who played Chris, and Mara Wilson, who played Natalie, posed in a row for a family photo re-enactment.

The trio have had varied careers since the film came out, but are catching up regularly.

Perhaps the most famous of the three, Mara, 34, rose to fame in the Roald Dahl adaptation Matilda.

But then she suffered the tragic loss of her mother and only took on a few more roles before saying goodbye for a 12-year hiatus.

She avoided the limelight after a successful career and worked as a playwright, but has undertaken some acting projects in recent years.

These include the TV series Big Hero 6 in 2018 and starring as a waitress in 2016.

She recently starred in the TV series BoJack Horseman and published her book Where Am I Now?

Mara came out as bisexual after the 2016 Orlando shootings in which gay men were attacked at a nightclub.

Lisa, now 43, played Robin and Sally Field’s eldest child Lydia – and was just 14 when the hit film came out.

The child actress was controversially expelled from her school when she landed the role – but she enjoyed a successful teenage acting career, which included starring in Independence Day two years later.

However, she quit acting at age 22 — and moved to Virginia in 2005 to marry Hollywood theater executive Jeremy Jones.

Lisa now works as a yoga teacher, speaker, and author, even writing an autobiography called You Look Like That Girl.

Last year she launched a wellness website, Blue Mala, a resource she wished she had had in her darkest moments.

Matthew played middle child Chris in the blockbuster – and was 13 when it came out.

The 42-year-old is also the middle child in real life, and his brothers Joey and Andrew are also actors.

After finding fame in Mrs. Doubtfire, Matthew and his real-life siblings starred in the television series Brotherly Love between 1995 and 1997.

Between 1997 and 2000 he took on the role of Jack Hunter in Boy Meets World.

Matthew starred in a 2002 film called The Hot Chick and has now appeared in his brother’s sitcom Melissa & Joey between 2011 and 2014.

He split from his Dancing With The Stars wife Cheryl Burke after she filed for divorce in January.
