‘Jem and the Holograms’ Trailer Trashed by Original Fans of Animated Series

Die-hard fans of the 80s cartoon express outrage over the first trailer for the ”Jem“ remake

The new trailer for “Jem and the Holograms” has sparked outrage on social media, as fans of the original animated series think it’s a pure “disappointment” and “nothing like the cartoon.”

Jon M. Chu‘s live action remake of popular 80s’ cartoon “Jem” was released on May 12. Since then, original “Jem” fanatics have ripped it to shreds on Twitter.

“You turned the story of a powerful woman CEO into a tween Hanna Montana knockoff,” one fan tweeted.

That was just the beginning.

“Looks like someone got #PrettyLittleLiars drunk on hard gummy bears then punched it in the face,” another Twitter user posted.

The live-action telling stars “Sharknado” actress Aubrey Peeples as the eponymous Jem, an introvert teen living with her aunt (Molly Ringwald), sister and foster siblings (Stefanie Scott, Hayley Kiyoko, and Aurora Perrineau).

The remake, scheduled for release October 23, will be distributed by Universal Pictures. Juliette Lewis and Ryan Guzman also round out the cast.
