A Middle-Aged Peter Pan is Out to Get Chip n’ Dale in New Rescue Rangers Trailer
Published 1 year ago
We may never have gotten a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? but it looks like Disney is going the spiritual sequel route with Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers. The movie is set to premiere on Disney+ later in May, and we have a new trailer that reveals the villain (or rather, villains).
While a middle-aged Peter Pan is enough of a joke in itself, it looks like the movie is going to have him be the villain to the dynamic duo Chip and Dale. With Will Arnett voicing the part of a grown-up Pan, I’m kind of hoping we get a cameo from Arnett’s other famous animated role, BoJack Horseman—please make it happen, Netflix.
Though this could have easily been a reboot, Rescue Rangers admittedly takes a very interesting direction, and offers a meta-look at animation and the Hollywood industry. Not only do we get commentary on old 2D vs. 3D animation, but there are also some jabs at older forms of CG, especially with Seth Rogen’s dwarf character with the ‘dead eyes.’
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 castmate 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.
Catch Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers when it hits Disney+ on May 20.
