Disney’s Live-Action ‘Chip N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers’ Film To Be Directed By The Lonely Islands Akiva Schaffer

It has been quite a few years since it was reported that Disney was in development on a live-action/CGI adoption of the popular animated series Chip N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers. Well now we have an update.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Akiva Schaffer, one-third of Lonely Island along with Andy Samberg and Jorma Tacoma, has closed a deal to direct the studio’s live-action/CG hybrid take on Rescue Rangers.

David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, who produced The Muppets as well as Beauty and the Beast for the studio, are producing the project, whose distribution path is unclear. It may end up a theatrical release or could head to Disney+, the company’s upcoming streaming service that launches later this year.

Plot details are being kept under wraps but it will not be an origin story nor detective agency story. Rather, the take is being described as being meta, something self-referential and cool. Barry Schwartz and scribe duo Dan Gregor and Doug Mand wrote drafts.
