It has been ages since I have seen any pictures or footage of the very popular cartoon series, “Captain Planet and the Planeteers”. Some of us will be hesitant to acknowledge the existence of this cartoon series because we might be considered “old” for even remembering this cool, “after school” 90’s cartoon. I have to admit, seeing this made into a blockbuster film will be exiting . I wonder if our on-screen hero will sport a green mullet?

The Inquisitr reported that Sony Pictures announced that the “Captain Planet and the Planeteers” movie is officially under development.

The 1990s toon series will be produced by Mark Gordon, Don Murphy and Susan Montford. Andrea Giannetti will oversee the production for Sony. No director and screenwriter have been announced to take on the iconic planet saving cartoon movie.

Awesome villain names is one avenue the screenwriter will not be struggling with.
