According to HypeBae, the film is being directed by filmmaker Jerome Yoo.

The filmmakers shared this synopsis for the fam-made film, “Picture 10-year-old you sitting in front of the TV, watching TJ, Spinelli, Gretchen, Vince, Mikey, Gus, Randall, the Ashleys and the rest of the colourful cast at 3rd Street Elementary School getting up to their usual hijinks. You lay your head to rest that night and dream about being part of this group and then awake 20 years later and think: ‘Hey, I wonder what happened to the Recessgang when they went to high school?’ Well, YOU’RE WELCOME, because we’re here to answer that question for you!”
The film’s main cast is as follows:
- Benjamin Wadsworth as TJ
- Sean Depner as Mikey
- Louriza Tronco as Spinelli
- Lillian Doucet-Roche as Gretchen
- Fritzy-Klevans Destine as Vince

“The Ashleys” clique will be played by Sydney Scotia, Brenna Llewellyn, as well as Kelcey Mawema and Emilija Baranac, who’s best known for her role as Genevieve in the Netflix hit, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Of course, the gang won’t be complete without the playground snitch Randall, who’ll be portrayed by Adam DiMarco.
The fan-made film is currently in post-production and set to release online sometime in August 2019. “Recess” will be free for viewing for all the nostalgic 90’s kids to enjoy! Be sure to check back here at Chip and Company for all Disney based entertainment!
