Disney has announced plans to turn its hit 1990s cartoon Chip ‘n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers into a live-action movie. They’ve already optioned a script written by Robert Rugan who is an award-winning commercial director. The movie would combine both live-action and CGI to tell the origin story of the Rescue Rangers.
I was a big fan of the original animated series when it aired as a part of the Disney Afternoon, but live action? You know you thought the same thing when you read that headline. This could either turn out really good, or it could take an unfortunate leap into awfulness that could ruin it forever (don’t forget Alvin And The Chimpunks and The Smurfs). Let’s hope the Rescue Rangers aren’t the ones who end up needing rescuing from their own movie.
