The Rescue Rangers are back in business. If the reporting from DisInsider is true, we’ll be getting a half live-action, half CG version of the classic cartoon. The rumor states that the film, which has long been gestating, will release on Disney+. In addition to that, they’re also reporting that the original voice actors, Tress MacNeille (Chip and Gadget), Corey Burton (Dale and Zipper), and Jim Cummings (Monterey Jack) from the cartoon are reprising their roles.

Akiva Schaffer, one-third of The Lonely Island, and co-director of Hot Rod, is set to direct and the film was written by Dan Gregor and Doug Mand. The classic animated series ran from 1989 to 1990. You can watch the original series on Disney+. The show told the story of Chip and Dale’s detective agency, the Rescue Rangers.

It ran during the classic afternoon lineup on Disney Channel along with Ducktales. There aren’t many other details about the show available. So in regards to the plot, it likely will follow the same general story of the original. But the addition of live action actors might throw a wrench into that. We’ll have to see when the film releases on Disney+.
