Today Disney+ released the first trailer and poster for its original movie Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers. The movie is being billed as a comeback and not a reboot, that is 30 years in the making. It mixes both live-action and CGI for a hybrid animated adventure comedy. The film catches up with the former Disney Afternoon television stars in modern-day Los Angeles. Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers will arrive on Disney+ on May 20, 2022.
Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers Official Description
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 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.
