‘Recess’ Superfans are Making a Live-Action Reboot and The Internet Has Some Opinions About It

The classic 90’s Disney cartoon Recess is on the conveyor belt of nostalgic live-action reboots coming to the big screen.

Recess superfans Jerome Yoo, Kent Donguines and scriptwriter Zlatina Pacheva are bringing the kids of 3rd Street Elementary School in a live-action adaptation to take place several years later with the characters now as teens.

According to Hypebeast, the Recess live-action lineup includes Deadly Class’ Benjamin Wadsworth as TJ, Sean Depner as Mikey, The Order’s Louriza Tronco as Spinelli, Lillian Doucet-Roche as Gretchen, Fritzy-Klevans Destine as Vince and Clive Holloway as Gus. They’ve also enlisted Sydney Scotia, Brenna Llewellyn, Kelcey Mawema and Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’s Emilija Baranac as the trio behind “The Ashleys” and, of course, Adam DiMarco as playground snitch and teacher’s pet Randall.

Although this is not a studio-made Disney film and the filmmakers are currently fundraising their project to get it made — fans of the beloved animated series are not too thrilled with the idea. And it seems the nostalgia of remakes used a selling tool to create more movies is slowly beginning to wear down. The box-office is still making its millions from The Lion King which has grossed over 250 million domestically. And as long as the audience pay top dollar to see their favorite classics adapted on the big screen in live-action form, expect the reboots and remakes to keep on coming. We still have Mulan and The Little Mermaid on its way down the pipeline.
