They’re Making A “Captain Planet” Movie

Cartoon Network has signed a development agreement with Angry Filmworks to develop a live-action feature film based on the environment-saving animated hero “Captain Planet and the Planeteers”.

The original series was about a group of young people who combine their special powers (The Planeteers) to summon Captain Planet, an environmental superhero, to battle the world’s worst eco-villains. The show premiered in fall 1990 and ran for six seasons.

Producers Don Murphy and Susan Montford now have exclusive rights to develop and package the property and advance it towards production.
