Disney Greenlights Chip N’ Dale Movie
As the recent Alvin and the Chipmunks and Smurfs movies prove, Live-Action/CG hybrid reboots of iconic 80s animated franchises are lucrative, and it’s something that no major studio can ignore – especially when it comes to Disney as they have dozens of these 80s franchises just waiting for a reboot. And according to The Hollywood Reporter, they may be in the process of reviving Chip N’ Dale via a film adaptation.
According to the report, Disney has picked up a Chip N’ Dale film adaptation from commercials director Robert Rugan, and that the film will be produced by Mandeville Films/TV, which has already worked on The Muppets (and the upcoming Muppets: Most Wanted). No details regarding the plot or the release date have been released at the moment, though it is said that the film will serve as an origin story of sorts for the main characters.
