Akiva Schaffer to Direct Disney’s “Live Action” Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers Film. According to THR, one of the directors from Lonely Island has been signed on to direct the CGI/’Live-Action’ reboot of Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers.
Producers of the film, David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, who also produced The Muppets and Beauty and the Beast, choose Akiva Schaffer to direct the new film starring our mischievous chipmunks, Chip and Dale. The film will be set up as a “Meta” based story, but all other details on the film are being kept air tight by the studio and crew.
Chip and Dale have been causing mischief for the classic Disney characters since 1943, but became the Rescue Rangers in 1989 with the release of Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers. The film was a success and sparked a 3 season television series, with the characters wearing outfits inspired by Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) and Magnum P.I (Tom Selleck).
Disney has not announced if the new Rescue Rangers film will be released theatrically, or will be offered exclusively on Disney+ once it is released.
