NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- The casts of the classic 1980s movies "The Big Chill," "Footloose" and "Airplane!" are scheduled to reunite on the "Today" show in New York, NBC said Friday.

The actors are assembling to discuss their experiences making the films, as well as what it's like to reunite after more than 20 years, the network said.

Glenn Close, JoBeth Williams, Mary Kay Place, Jeff Goldblum and William Hurt are slated to talk Monday about their Oscar-nominated movie "The Big Chill" and the impact it had on their generation.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Robert Hays, Peter Graves, Leslie Nielsen and Jill Whelan are set to reunite Wednesday to chat about their big-screen comedy, "Airplane!"

Kevin Bacon, John Lithgow and Lori Singer are to appear on the show Friday to talk about their dance-themed flick, "Footloose."

Singer Kenny Loggins is to make a special appearance and perform the movie's title song, NBC said.
