"Jem, also known as Jem and the Holograms, is an American animated television series that ran from 1985 to 1988 in U.S. first-run syndication. The show is about music company owner Jerrica Benton, her singer alter-ego Jem, her band the Holograms, and their adventures. The series was a joint collaboration by Hasbro, Marvel Productions and Sunbow Productions, the same team responsible for G.I. Joe and Transformers." (Wiki)And while my personal memories of this 80s property remain essentially non-existent in my mindscape, seems the exces at Hasbro thinks differently, with a "live"-action feature film to beamed, as directed by Jon M. Chu. ("G.I.Joe"), with the main cast recently announced on JemTheMovie.com:
Jem - Aubrey Peeples
Kimber - Stefanie Scott
Aja - Hayley Kiyoko
Shana - Aurora Perrineau
And while this might not be the excitement of a lifetime for myself, the sheer possibilities of 80s cartoons opening up for reboot(s) in fancy films, is a big lure for me … here's hoping **SilverHawks or **BraveStarr might make the celluloid-cut one day!
(P/S: **Yes I know they're not under Hasbro, but I can dream, can't I? ;p)
