"For me, it represented a magical story about, you know, listening to a voice you maybe didn't want to listen to," 59-year-old Costner told the Des Moines Register of the 1989 flick.

"[The movie does deal] with that biblical thing of men and their sons and maybe not getting along," Costner explained. "You don't want to go through life and wish you had played catch.'"

Accompanying the Oscar winner to the historic field were Costner's three youngest kids (with second wife Christine Baumgartner)—Cayden, 7, Hayes, 5, and Grace, 4—along with 12,000 fans. The actor, a father of seven, revealed that the trio has never before seen Field of Dreams; in fact, the Hollywood hunk wanted to reserve the moment for their visit to the site.

"I'm going to sit in a little cornfield in Iowa, these lights are going to go out, and we're going to watch a movie," Costner explained in a public Q&A. "And I don't think there's anything more American, I don't think there's any bigger miracle for me that occurred than this movie that was made 25 years ago here in this field."
