There are a lot of new shows and original features coming to Disney+ over the next few years. But only one of those movies is going to star John Mulaney and Andy Samberg as noted Rescue Rangers Chip and Dale!
But wait—it’s even better than the casting suggests!
First of all, this filmic adaptation of Chip ‘n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers will be directed by Akiva Schaffer (who was one third of the musical-comedy trio Lonely Island, and who recently directed Palm Springs) and Dan Gregor and Doug Mand are co-writing the script, working from an earlier adaptation by Barry Schwartz.
Part B: the movie’s going to be hybrid live-action and animation, which, if done well, is the best.
But best best? Chip and Dale are going to be beings of traditional cell animation, trying to keep pace with the times as the world embraces computer graphics! Remember that scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? when Betty Boop reflects on her career struggles as cartoons went to color? Or all those parts of Wreck-it Ralph that dealt with sadness and ennui? It’s possible that might be this movie’s whole deal.
Also! Corey Burton, who voiced Dale and Zipper the fly in the original Rescue Rangers, will be reprising his role as Zipper in the film!
The Rescue Rangers will be tackling crime (and maybe ennui?) on Disney+ in Spring 2022.
