'Captain Planet' Live-Action Movie Takes Pollution Down To Zero

Posted 5 hrs ago by Danica Davidson in News

Captain Planet“Captain Planet” is back! But the eco-friendly superhero won’t be showing up in an animated reboot of the original '90s cartoon. Instead, Cartoon Network and "Transformers" producer Don Murphy and partner Susan Montford's Angry Filmworks are teaming together with "Transformers" producer to make a live action film about the environmentalist hero.

“The messages of Captain Planet are even more relevant today,” said Stuart Snyder, president and COO of Turner Broadcasting System Inc.’s Animation, Young Adults and Kids Media division, in a press release. “We feel this team can bring the world’s first eco-hero to life in a powerful motion picture that is not only pertinent but entertaining.”

Murphy and Montford also expressed their appreciation of the project in the press release.

“[Captain Planet’s] adventures are known worldwide and he is recognized across generations,” said Murphy. “We expect to make a spectacular series of films with the amazing team at Cartoon Network.”

“With the earthquakes, tornadoes, melting icebergs and all the other problems threatening the world right now, Earth really needs her greatest defender,” added Montford.

The press release did not say when the movie is expected to be released.

This is being done for Cartoon Network. It wont make it to the big screen, and I've checked IMDB. Look at the other crappy live action movies CN have done. This will suck like those, and be on the $5 DVD section at Walmart in 3 months.

Plus who wants to see a super hero that looks like this?

My kids love Phineas and Ferb, or at least that's what I tell them when I put it on. :D

As for Captain Planet, it was lame then, it will be lame now. The only thing that will be interesting is watching the kid who gets his powers from being bitten by a radioactive Al Gore. :D

My biggest question is, "Why?"
'Captain Planet' is a show which has not aged well at all, is preachier than most religious- themed cartoon shows, has not been released on DVD, and the only attention it currently gets is from people who laugh at how lame and preachy it was. There's a reason why generally the only place it can currently be seen is 6:00 am on Boomerang. Cartoon Network (A network which, imo, plummeted in terms of quality about 5 years ago) has shown they only care about shows that they think can sell and attract ratings, so why the hell would they go with a Captain Planet movie, a project that's pretty much guaranteed to fail? Even if they are doing it to pursue an environmental message, surely there are better ways of doing so than reviving a show that nobody likes.

The only thing that I can think of is that they will give it the parody treatment that it so richly deserves. If they use it to lampoon the pretensions of environmentalists, then it will be worth watching. They need to give it the Team America treatment.
