It’s small and it’s blurry, but the first film still from the upcoming live-action feature based on the classic 1980s cartoon “Jem and the Holograms” has arrived and looks like fun.
Elle Magazine’s March 2015 issue published the photo of Jem (Aubrey Peeples) with Aja (Hayley Kiyoko) on the bass and Kimber (Stefanie Scott) on the key-tar as they rock out on stage, and io9 has posted a blown-up scan of the shot. Jim’s look has undergone a change, though it’s hoped the iconic pink dress will pop up in a different scene.
The film’s story reimagines the show with Jerrica Benton now an orphan turned online recording sensation who, along with her sisters, embarks on a music-driven scavenger hunt across Los Angeles in an attempt to unlock a final message left by her father.
‘Jem’ comic artist Ross Campbell has also revealed that the characters of Kimber and Stormer are a couple in the new film and the movie will explore a romantic relationship between them.
