When you thought this idea couldn't get any worse.:facepalm:

Quote:
Disney’s feature film reimagining of Chip ‘n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers has found its director. Akiva Schaffer, one-third of Lonely Island along with Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone's, has closed a deal to direct the studio’s live-action/CG hybrid take on Rescue Rangers, featuring the classic chipmunk duo.

David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, who produced The Muppets as well as Beauty and the Beast for the studio, are producing the project, whose distribution path is unclear. It may end up a theatrical release or could head to Disney+, the company’s upcoming streaming service that launches later this year.

Plot details for Rangers are being squirreled away, but it will not be an origin story nor detective agency story. Rather, the take is being described as being meta, something self-referential and cool. Dan Gregor and Doug Mand wrote the script. Execs Louie Provost and Jessica Virtue are overseeing for the studio, Alex Young is shepherding for Mandeville Films/TV.

So basically a replacement for Alvin and the Chipmunks. Will be skipping this for sure.

What in the heck is Disney even doing to their legacy? Descendants, some of their live action films, for some RBTI, and now this. Disney might as well ignore their past movies & shows.

And I thought Hollywood was way past this. AATC hasn't been relevant for years.

I thought this project had been completely abandoned! If I understood it correctly, the movie won't be based on the TV series anymore, is that right? That's a real shame. :( I was excited for this project when it was first announced because I love the TV show and I thought that, if done right, it could be a good idea. Now, I'm not so sure.
