John Mulaney & Andy Samberg To Star In ‘Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers’ Reboot | Film News


John Mulaney and Andy Samberg will star in a reboot of Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers for Disney+.


The film will be a combination of live-action and computer animation, with Akiva Schaffer – one of Samberg’s Lonely Island buddies who also directed Hot Rod and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping – helming the film.


Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers aired in America for three seasons starting in 1989. It followed the two chipmunks first introduced by Disney in 1943 in various shorts, but this series revolved around a detective agency that focuses on crimes too small scale to be tracked by the authorities.


Look, obviously it’s great that Mulaney and Samberg are teaming up for a film. It’s just a shame that it has to be a Disney+ reboot of an old show barely anyone remembers. Surely audiences would prefer a simple buddy comedy with the duo instead of a reboot that ostensibly has a built-in audience but might actually not?


Still, Mulaney and Samberg directed by Schaffer is still a terrific trio that can probably work some magic and turn this into zany fun. Hopefully Disney just let them go nuts with the premise and they don’t have to adhere to any strict rules about the original show’s legacy (what am I saying, this is Disney we’re talking about).


Samberg recently starred in the well-liked Hulu romantic comedy Palm Springs, while Mulaney’s only film role to date is as the voice of Spider-Ham in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, although he does have a role in the upcoming musical version of Cinderella that’s being helmed by Kay Cannon.
