Yes, you read the title correctly. Jem and the Holograms, a live-action movie. OUTRAGEOUS! Jon M Chu is going to direct this live-action movie, now Chu also directed the movie G.I. Joe Retaliation, another cartoon from the Hasbro company. If memory serves me correctly, Retaliation was trash. I’m excited about this project as Jem was the best cartoon out there for girls and well I’m a girl soo yeah, OUTRAGEOUS!!!! Peep the announcement on Jem and the Holograms movie from director Jon M. Chu and producers by Jason Blum and Scooter Braun.
Wow, so Kickstarter without the money, huh? All they’re looking for is creativity and who the fans think should play in the live-action Jem and the Holograms movie. I could totally see Ariana Grande playing Jem. Have you heard her sing? Mercy. Mariah Carey 2.0. She could totally be Jem, Scooter Braun manages Ariana Grande anyways so I’m thinking it could be the perfect fit. Have Miley Cyrus play Pizzazz.
Wait, you never heard of Jem and the Holograms have you?
The series revolves around Jem, the mysterious lead singer and front-woman of the rock group “Jem and the Holograms.” Her real name is Jerrica Benton, and under this name she is the owner and manager of Starlight Music. Jerrica adopts this persona with the help of a holographic computer, known as Synergy, which was built by Jerrica’s father to be “the ultimate audio-visual entertainment synthesizer” and is bequeathed to her after his death. Jerrica is able to command Synergy to project “the Jem hologram” over herself by means of the remote micro-projectors in her earrings, thus disguising her features and clothing enabling her to assume the Jem persona. While disguised as Jem, Jerrica is able to move freely without restrictions and on several occasions other people have been in direct physical contact with her without disrupting the holographic projection. Jem, through the use of her earrings, is also able to project holograms around her and uses this ability throughout the series to avoid danger and provide special effects for the performances of her group.
Jem’s theme song.
I really REALLY hope that this is done correctly otherwise you’re screwing with my damn childhood and that is NOT cool. I’ll be following this closely. Follow JemTheMovie for updates and use the hashtag #JemTheMovie if you have any ideas, pictures that’s Jem-worthy. What do you think of this radical announcement? Let us know in the comments. I’m about to call my mother to see if she still has my Jem and the Hologram dolls!
