It’s been a long time coming for Community fans, but as of today, we’re getting the movie that we’ve all wanted so badly. The movie comes from original creator Dan Harmon and brings back six of the original cast members: Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong. In addition, Peacock will get the entire full series library. Conspicuously absent are Donald Glover, Chevy Chase, and Yvette Nicole Brown. It’s not known at this time whether any of those three will be involved with the new movie.
Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content NBCUniversal Television and Streaming had this to say about the new movie.
