Disney+ is bringing back the classic duo Chip ‘n’ Dale, for a rebooted cartoon this November. Produced in Europe, the lovable chipmunks will be getting a modern take, of course, with series spanning 39 episodes, each seven minutes long.
While we have yet to see any footage, the studio promises that the show will feature the lovable chipmunk troublemakers in a non-verbal, classic style comedy. Not like the popular Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers from the ’90s. Instead, Disney is said to be working on a live-action Rescue Rangers film, with The Lonely Island’s Akiva Shaffer tapped to direct.
The original characters were created by Walt Disney animator Bill Justice as anthropomorphic chipmunk brothers and first appeared in 1943’s Private Pluto.
