Ok, so if you haven't heard, Jem and The Holograms is going to be made into a live action movie. If you don't know about Jem and The Holograms, it was a cartoon in the 80s about an all female singing group. The show had to be my favorite cartoon as a child and still is now as an adult. I have literally seen every episode of the cartoon and I love that it's still popular to this day. I love that younger generations are able to enjoy it through Netflix and The Hub. I think more 80s stuff should get a chance at this kind of new generation love.
Also, it seems that this big thing about casting fans and having fans involved was just a way for creators to get some free viral marketing by having people hashtag all their movies and entries about the movie in social media with their hashtag #jemthemovie. Then they only give some people bit parts and that's about it from the fans. I mean they didn't even get the original creator and anyone from the original show involved. They are truly going for their own vision of the show and from reading various posts, the fans, younger and older, are so not happy, and a lot of them have created a new hashtage they are passing around called #boycottjemthemovie. Another hashtag that is going around now too is #WeWantChristy in a bid to get Christy Marx on the movie team. I mean let's face it, most of the crew seems like they were born after the show went off the air, so they don't know what an icon Jem was for the time. They don't have that relation to her, so messing up the story will be super easy for them. The fans are aware of this, and they are making themselves be heard.
here, and there is also a blog that I believe a fan is running here. It has some added info I couldn't find elsewhere, but I am not 100% sure if their info is right. Seems legit, but read at your own disclosure. And I will talk to you lovely people later. Until next time. Take care. Bye for now. :-)
