Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers

Children of the 90s remember the theme song, and now a new generation just might become acquainted with a new chipmunk team on the big screen. While everyone is familiar with Alvin and the Chipmunks and their disastrous live-action, CG hybrid film franchise, Disney has their own team of chipmunks with ties to nostalgia as well. The duo of Chip 'n' Dale appeared in various Disney shorts in the 1940s and 1950s, but they found a much bigger audience when they became Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers, running a detective agency and saving animal friends. Now that action adventure iteration is headed for the big screen.

If you need something to be stuck in your head all day, here's the animated series' title sequence:

THR has word that commercials director Robert Rugan will write the new version that will act as an origin story of our heroes. Mandeville Films, the company behind The Muppets franchise at Disney, will produce the film which will likely be in the same style as other live-action and computer animated hybrids like The Smurfs, Scooby-Doo and Alvin and the Chipmunks. Now a whole new generation of kids will be confused by the fact that "Chip 'n' Dale" sounds exactly like the nomenclature of male strippers. Anyone interested?

        I definitely would've gone with Ducktails first. Pretty sure they just re-released an HD remastered version of one of the games for multiplatform.

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat !! OK, big fan of Chip 'n Dale RR here, and I'm both excited and worried. Let's see who this will work. FYI; go read the 8 issues of the comic book from Boom! Studios for 5 years ago, is amazing.
