On first inspection, a Disney movie reviving a long-lost (albeit fondly-remembered) animated present won’t be probably the most tantalising of reports. However what if that present was the beloved Chip ’N Dale: Rescue Rangers (they’re chipmunks who remedy crimes and save the day!), and the individuals making it had been the comedy geniuses generally known as The Lonely Island? You then’d begin to get fairly rattling excited. And, effectively, you’d be proper: the primary trailer for the brand new Chip ’N Dale film, directed by Akiva Schaffer and that includes Andy Samberg as Dale, seems good and witty, full of every kind of unusual crossovers as well. Take a look at the trailer right here:
Appears to be like surprisingly enjoyable, proper? This one is taking a meta tack – catching up with Chip (John Mulaney) and Dale thirty years after their heyday, now washed up and in want of a ‘reboot’. And time has seen them drift aside – Dale has had dreaded CGI surgical procedure, their former buddy Monterey Jack developed a cheese habit, and so they’re now not within the public eye. If there’s little trace of the plot that will get the gang again in movement, there are many cameos – from Scrooge McDuck to Roger Rabbit, to the Sultan from Aladdin. Extra curiously, there are appearances from the My Little Pony characters and the cats from Cats too, the latter in a sequence that appears to be set within the uncanny valley itself, with Seth Rogen as a creepy medieval avatar. All that, and also you get an Indiana Jones gag about Chip’s basic costume too – certainly made potential because of Disney’s acquisition of LucasFilm.
Right here’s hoping this one has much more gags and delights hidden up its sleeve. Would possibly it even, in some way, reside as much as Popstar: By no means Cease By no means Stopping and Sizzling Rod? We’ll discover out when Chip ’N Dale: Rescue Rangers streams on Disney+ from 20 Could.
