ABC's Good Morning America has started previewing each reunion as of Wednesday. First up, GMA showed the cast of the hit Julia Roberts film Mystic Pizza reuniting! Yesterday GMA brought us Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers of the '80s TV drama Hart to Hart reuniting and hosted by Parks and Recreation stars Amy Poehler and Adam Scott! Today GMA reunited the cast of the '70s family TV drama The Waltons! Good "morning" John Boy! Now those are just three of the ten featured on EW's "The Reunion Issue." Other classic casts reunited are: Boy Meets World, Frasier, The X-Files, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, School of Rock, Do the Right Thing and Wicked.
