Or is it?
I don’t know what this movie is going to achieve, other than earn something in the box office, but apparently there is a film inspired from Captain Planet that is int he works. According to the producer of “Transformers” plans are underway to bring the eco-hero to the big screen.
Captain Planet was originally a TV series in the 90′s called “Captain Planet and the Planeteers”. It delved on environmental issues, where five young people travel the world to help come up with solutions to eco-crises. When the task is just too great, they call on the blue superhero, Captain Planet to assist them.
The movie deal is said to be a live action flick, meaning, it’s going to have real people in the cast.
According to the producers:
“The messages of Captain Planet are even more relevant today… We feel this team can bring the world’s first eco-hero to life in a powerful motion picture that is not only pertinent but entertaining. With the earthquakes, tornadoes, melting icebergs and all the other problems threatening the world right now, Earth really needs her greatest defender.”
Perhaps this is one way of inspiring and giving people who have experienced nature’s wrath first hand, new hope, as well as increase awareness about climate change.
What do you think?
