Soooooo, on Tuesday, the first official trailer for the band new Jem and the Holograms trailer (based on the awesome 80’s cartoon) was released and….well…there’s that saying “if you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.
Not that anyone actually adheres to that saying.
And here’s the trailer that has caused much outrage from Jem fans:
Most people my age will know that the original cartoon series was about music company owner Jerrica who, with the help of a computer named Synergy, can touch her earring, transforming her into Jem through a hologram program – hence Jem and the Holograms. Jem uses Synergy’s holographic transforming powers to keep her Jerrica identity secret, especially from her enemies – The Misfits.
Show me anywhere in that trailer where a misfit is mentioned or an earring is touched. Instead, the masterful minds behind this live-action version have turned Jem into a High School Musical-Hannah Montana knock-off that instead of beinng outrageous, has just outraged fans.
What do you think about the newly released trailer?
