I saw this movie in the 90s when I was young. It is not Escape from Witch Mountain. I would recognize the face of the actors if I saw a pic.

Plot is fuzzy, but I believe it had the following:

  • Brother/Sister
  • Special powers of some kind, mostly mind based
  • One power they had was to restore damage.
  • They had a friend, old asian guy and a green car, his car was basically damaged and the boy used his power to restore the car to new.

What is this movie?

  • I remember that movie... for a bit, I was thinking Pat Morita, but that doesn't quite match up with the film list. He wore a brown hat and I can hear his voice in my head.

This sounds like Return From Witch Mountain, actually. Naturally, it has the brother and sister with psychic powers. There was also a friendly Asian character, played by Jack Soo, who drives a green van, which Tony/Tia use their powers to repair.

  • I'm intrigued why you edited out the info about the accident

  • @Valorum As I recall, the accident was a collision with a fire hydrant. That video clip doesn't look like the damage from that kind of accident. That looks more like the van was a decayed heap of junk, and was returned to working order from that condition.

  • The van was a junker before the accident and a broken junker afterwards. The kids restored it to mint.
