A low quality image giving us a first look at the 80s cartoon come to life in Jem and the Holograms has been making the rounds after appearing in a magazine, and now Universal Pictures has released an official high-resolution version that we can check out. The original animated series began airing in 1985 and ran for three seasons, following the adventures of the Jem, the musical superstar alter ego of a young woman named Jerrica Benton who, with the help of a holographic computer called Synergy, is able to clandestinely perform rock concerts with her friends. But the movie may end up a little different than that. Look below!
Here's the first image from Jon M. Chu's Jem and the Holograms from Universal:
As a small-town girl (Aubrey Peeples) catapults from underground video sensation to global superstar, she and her three sisters (Stefanie Scott, Aurora Perrineau, Hayley Kiyoko) begin a one-in-a-million journey of discovering that some talents are too special to keep hidden. These our aspiring musicians will take the world by storm when they see that the key to creating your own destiny lies in finding your own voice. Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis also star in Jem and the Holograms, directed by Jon M. Chu (Step Up, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and written by Ryan Landels ("Masterclass"). Universal releases the film October 23rd.
