Disney+ has unveiled a full trailer and a new poster for its new live-action/animated action/comedy Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers. The movie takes place 30 years after the original series came to an end, and it “catches up with the former Disney Afternoon television stars in modern-day Los Angeles.” The chipmunks are back to save their friend.
The movie tells a mystery story with toons going out in the real world. The movie looks like it will be fun and it’s got a fantastic cast!
The movie stars John Mulaney as Chip, Andy Samberg as Dale, and KiKi Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk). Also joining the cast are Will Arnett, Eric Bana (Hulk), 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).
“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.”
The movie 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.
Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers will be out on May 20, 2022, exclusively on Disney+.
