John Mulaney and Andy Samberg are Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers!

The entirety of my childhood slate of after-school programming is back, I’m struggling to think of anything I used to watch religiously that hasn’t made it’s way back to the screen. The latest, which has been in the works since 2014, is a two’fer of the OG rodent private eyes, Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers! Samberg and Mulaney will voice the two gumshoes in a live-action hybrid movie that’s said to feature a cameo by Seth Rogen. I’m really scraping the back of my brain here and I honestly think the only thing left from Disney’s early-90’s afternoon lineup that hasn’t gotten a big-time reboot is Tale Spin. Can we take a minute to just appreciate how lax things were back then that they made a kid’s show with a name that’s a play on the most famous male strippers? Or….did the Rescue Rangers come first? If so, that’s kind of disturbing.

Anyway, if you were concerned that 90 minutes just isn’t enough of these pint-sized heroes, fear not! Chip and Dale will be back in more then just the feature, there’s also and animated series currently in production at Disney. It will still be a bit before we see any footage or trailers, as filming isn’t set to begin until Spring of 2021. I’m just hoping they don’t mess with the original design too much, I really hate when the revival shows look nothing like the original. See: Thundercats.

Fun Fact: Chip ‘n Dale wear outfits to mimic Indiana Jones and Magnum P.I.
