Jem and the Holograms

Remember Jem and the Holograms? If not, that’s OK because you’ll get a chance to soak it all up pretty soon. The camp ‘80s pop band cartoon is getting a live-action big-screen reboot. 

Penciled in for release this December through Universal Pictures, the film follows Jerrica Benton who lives a secret double life as Jem, the pink-haired lead singer in the famous pop group the Holograms. 

'Jem and the Holograms' Director Teases Modern Movie About 'Staying True to Who You Really Are'

Aubrey Peeples (Tokarev, Sharknado, Nashville) stars as Jem, alongside a cast that also includes Juliette Lewis and Molly Ringwald. Jon M. Chu, who helmed the documentary Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, directs the movie. Jason Blum and Scooter Braun are executive producing the movie, with Bieber's well-connected manager helping to score original songs for the movie.

It's a safe bet that merch and music spin-offs will be a huge part of the rollout. And all just in time for Christmas. Watch the trailer below.
