'Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers' wins Outstanding Television Film at Creative Arts Emmys ...

Chip n Dale: Rescue Rangers is a live-action/animation action comedy film that was shortlisted for a Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Television Film. The film was released in May on Disney+, despite favorable reviews, but Rescue Rangers beat out Ray Donovan: The Movie, Reno 911!: The Survivor, and Zoeys Extraordinary Christmas.

Rescue Rangers was praised by critics for its meta-commentary and voice performances, and it was compared to Space Jam: A New Legacy, a similar live-action/animated hybrid that lobbied at the film industry but was eventually dismissed as inappropriate upon release. Ross Bonaime, who wrote a glowing review, called the film an inventive recreation of our IP-obsessed society that shows how wonderful and wonderful it can be when executed extremely well.

Chip and Dale, a self-aware twist, is reimagined by Akiva Schaffer and features John Mulaney and Andy Samberg as the two has-beens. After a long-time friendship, the two have to reconcile.

The Lonely Island comedy group is well-known for him as a film director. He has directed Hot Rod, The Watch, and the criminally underrated Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. He also co-produced the well-received 2020 time loop comedy Palm Springs; the cinematography, for instance, was handled by Zack Snyders regular DP Larry Fong, while the score was composed by blockbuster veteran Bryan Tyler.

Between 1989 and 1990, the original cartoon series ran for 65 episodes. The characters were originally created in the early 40s, and appeared in a series of shorts that ran till the mid-50s.

KiKi Layne, Will Arnett, Flula Borg, Keegan-Michael Key, Tress MacNeille, Tim Robinson, J.K. Simmons, and Chris Parnell are all featured in the film.

Chip and Dale are living among cartoonists and humans in modern-day Los Angeles, but their lives are completely different now. Chip (voice of Mulaney) has succumbed to a life of suburban domesticity as an insurance salesman. Dale (voice of Sandberg) has had CGI surgery and is working the nostalgia convention circuit, eager to relive his glory days.
