Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers “Comeback” Trailer Released


Disney has finally released their ‘Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers’ Reboot, I mean “Comeback” trailer today. It’s something!

Take a look!

Well that’s……something.

Here’s the write-up from YouTube:

Rescuing the world takes a pair.

A comeback 30 years in the making, the hybrid live-action/CG animated action-comedy catches up with the former Disney Afternoon television stars in modern-day Los Angeles. “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers” premieres May 20, 2022, exclusively on Disney+.

“Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers” stars John Mulaney (“Saturday Night Live”) as Chip, Andy Samberg (“Palm Springs”) as Dale and KiKi Layne (“If Beale Street Could Talk”). Also joining the cast are Will Arnett (“Arrested Development”), Eric Bana (“Dirty John”), Flula Borg (“Pitch Perfect 2”), Dennis Haysbert (“24”), Keegan-Michael Key (“Schmigadoon!”), Tress MacNeille (“The Simpsons”), Tim Robinson (“I Think You Should Leave”), Seth Rogen (“Pam and Tommy”), J.K. Simmons (“Being the Ricardos”), Chris Parnell (“Saturday Night Live”). The film is directed by Akiva Schaffer (“Saturday Night Live”), written by Dan Gregor and Doug Mand (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) and is produced by Todd Lieberman (“Wonder”) and David Hoberman (“Beauty and the Beast”), with Alexander Young (“Extinction”) and Tom Peitzman serving as executive producers.

In “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers,” Chip and Dale are living amongst cartoons and humans in modern-day Los Angeles, but their lives are quite different now. It has been decades since their successful television series was canceled, and Chip (voice of Mulaney) has succumbed to a life of suburban domesticity as an insurance salesman. Dale (voice of Sandberg), meanwhile, has had CGI surgery and works the nostalgia convention circuit, desperate to relive his glory days. When a former cast mate mysteriously disappears, Chip and Dale must repair their broken friendship and take on their Rescue Rangers detective personas once again to save their friend’s life.”

There is also a new poster:

I mean the jokes about the bad CGI were funny, and the Cats gag was funny as well. It feels like “Ready Player One” meets ‘Chip ‘n Dale’ and it’s clearly self-aware from the get go with the reboot comment, making sure we know it’s a “Comeback” not “reboot.”

I do think the 2D animated meets CGI is interesting, just waiting to see how it’s balanced. My daughter saw it and was like “It’s Alvin and the Chipmunks: so I’m hoping it feels ‘Chip ‘n Dale.”

Now they’re coming for the 90’s. I just hope it’s good. But if it’s like other reboots Hollywood has been putting out I have my doubts.

The new movie debuts on Disney+ on May 20, 2022.
