Réunion (; French: La Réunion, [la ʁe.y.njɔ̃] (listen); previously Île Bourbon; Reunionese Creole: La Rényon) is an island in the Indian Ocean that is an overseas department and region of France. It is located approximately 950 km (590 mi) east of the island of Madagascar and 175 km (109 mi) southwest of the island of Mauritius. As of January 2023, it had a population of 873,102. Like the other four overseas departments, Réunion also holds the status of a region of France, and is an integral part of the French Republic. Réunion is an outermost region of the European Union and is part of the eurozone. Réunion and the fellow French overseas department of Mayotte are the only eurozone regions located in the Southern Hemisphere. As in the rest of France, the official language of Réunion is French. In addition, a majority of the region's population speaks Réunion Creole.
A reunion is an event or gathering where individuals, who have been apart or separated for a period of time, come together again.

The fifth ‘American Pie’ has been written and as far as I know has been sitting on a shelf in Universal collecting dust for the last five years, … I’m not really where that stands. There’s been a lot of rumors online. Some fans have started Twitter pages called ‘American Vacation,’ pretending that it’s happening. I haven’t heard anything. I was the first one to agree to do ‘American Reunion.’ I remember [writer] Adam Herz, we were talking at a sushi restaurant in 2009. He was like, ‘Hey, what do you think of this idea about doing a reunion? I was like, ‘Count me in… Good luck coordinating everyone’s schedules.’ Sure enough, it took about three years.
We’ve said no to every sort of reunion, lately there’s one that we sort of are gravitating towards. It’s not a complete reunion, but a twist. If we can get it done right ... then we will do it.
Each year brings us nearer to the Wiedersehen [reunion with the dead], though it is sad to think how one's glass is running out, & how little good goes with it, compared to the numberless blessings we receive. Time goes incredibly fast.
When you surrender and release the illusion of control, you begin to free-fall toward your destiny of a grand reunion with your original-self; a self uncorrupted by the world’s false lessons of fear and control.
We've said no to every sort of reunion, lately there's one that we sort of are gravitating towards. It's not a complete reunion, but a twist. If we can get it done right ... then we will do it.
