This is kind of interesting, The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Disney is reviving Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers. They have accepted a pitch from Robert Rugan, an award-winning commercials director, who is writing an updated take on the characters from the late ’80s animated series. It is being looked at as a live-action/CG hybrid film.
With the success of three Alvin and the Chipmunks movies (Fox is in the process of making a fourth) and Sony Pictures Animation with two Smurfs movies (Smurfs was successful?), the live-action/CG hybrid of popular animated series is working for Hollywood. I still remember watching the series on television and even playing the Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers for the NES. Not entirely sure what I think of this yet. What about you guys? (Source: THR)
