Courtesy of Disney, Chip ‘n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers is getting the feature-length treatment starring John Mulaney and Andy Samberg as our loveably mischief-making chipmunks of our youth. The upcoming film will be a hybrid live-action/CG animated feature based on everyone’s favorite animated chipmunks. Disney+ took to Instagram to share the news, captioning their post, “A ̶r̶e̶b̶o̶o̶t̶ comeback 30 years in the making. Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers, an Original Movie, is streaming Spring 2022 on #DisneyPlus. #DisneyPlusDay”
Fans of Chip and Dale rejoiced! One says, “I’m not ready!!! Can’t wait to show my god daughter this show.” Another, “This script is very clever and smart. Can’t wait.”
Others were squeaking with delight! “I SEE A DARKWING DUCK SCRIPT DISNEY IT BETTER STAR BILL HADER” and “IS THAT A DARKWING DUCK SCRIPT IN THE BACKGROUND?” and “DARKWING DUCK???
But my first response echoed this. “A chipmunk sized script! ????” That script is so cute! If you look closely, the ‘monks point out “It’s a comeback 30 years in the making.” That script looks like it’s been through the wringer!
Disney+ also took to Twitter to share a little video of John Mulaney and Andy Samberg announcing the news. Admitting that the tiny script was “shockingly hard to read” they still seem pretty pumped. Samberg quipped, “Now, I know what you’re thinking, ‘Another reboot, no! But our film isn’t a reboot, it’s a comeback.”
Co-starring with John Mulaney and Andy Samberg are Corey Burton reprising his role as Zipper, Anthony Molinari, Victor Turpin, James Joseph Pulido and Emil Beheshti. Akiva Schaffer (Saturday Night Live, Hot Rod, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping) will be helming, while Dan Gregor and Doug Mand penned the screenplay from the story by Barry Schwartz.
Also in celebration of Disney+ Day, The Walt Disney Company will build on its commitment to children’s hospitals by expanding access to Disney+ to help ease the fear and anxiety of a hospital visit into over 30 countries worldwide beginning in 2022. In 2018, The Walt Disney Company continued its longstanding support of children’s hospitals and places of care, committing $100M to reimagine the patient journey.
In celebration of Disney+ Day, the second anniversary of the streaming platform, Disney+ not only premiered more than 25 new pieces of content, but also debuted dozens of first looks, new trailers, and exclusive clips from The Walt Disney Company’s world-class studios that showcase the incredible breadth of content coming to the service in the years ahead. Additionally, Disney+ subscribers were treated to a slate of all new content from each of its marquee brands, Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and in international markets, Star. Check out their Twitter and Instagram and share in the delight with the fans for all the new entertainment coming our way!
We can look forward to seeing Chip ‘n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers on Disney+ in Spring 2022.
