River, Wil Wheaton, Jerry O’Connell and Corey Feldman, Stand By Me behind the scenes, 1986.

‘’In “Stand by Me” I realized that what I was creating was going to live on far longer than anything of me as a person. The characters are more powerful than the person that creates them.’’ — River Phoenix.

‘’It was magical to make. Just being a kid up there with these guys. It was such a bond. It’s just like the movie says, you never have friends like you did when you were 12.’’ — Jerry O’Connell.

‘’[…] How lucky I am and how wonderful it is that I have this incredible movie in my body of work and it’s been there since I was a kid. There are actors who will go their entire careers without ever having an opportunity to work in a film like ‘Stand By Me. […]’’ — Wil Wheaton.

’’It’s become a cult classic. It’s brought up all the time, ‘why don’t you do a sequel.’’ — Corey Feldman.
