The social media embargo for Disney+’s newest original movie, Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers, has lifted. Critics have been sharing their thoughts on the movie, calling it “hilarious” and “reminiscent of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”. Check out the reactions below, and check out the film when it begins streaming on Disney+, this Friday.
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 castmate 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.
The comedy stars John Mulaney (Saturday Night Live, Big Mouth) as Chip, Andy Samberg (Palm Springs) as Dale, and KiKi Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk). Also joining the cast are Will Arnett (Arrested Development), Eric Bana (Hulk), Flula Borg (Pitch Perfect 2), Dennis Haysbert (24), Keegan-Michael Key (Tomorrowland, Schmigadoon!), Tress MacNeille (The Simpsons), Tim Robinson (I Think You Should Leave), Seth Rogen (The Lion King, Pam and Tommy), J.K. Simmons (Being the Ricardos), Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live).
The film is directed by Akiva Schaffer (Hot Rod, Saturday Night Live), written by Dan Gregor and Doug Mand (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), and is produced by Todd Lieberman (Wonder) and David Hoberman (Beauty and the Beast), with Alexander Young (Extinction) and Tom Peitzman serving as executive producers. Post Malone will sing the iconic theme song. Composer Brian Tyler (Thor: The Dark World) scores.
