Netflix To Reboot Inspector Gadget

26 February 2015 7:19 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Netflix is adding another 80s classic as a new reboot, Inspector Gadget. Yes, the fun cyborg is coming with a whole new lease on life. Dhx is bring back him, his niece Penny who is now older and her smart dog Brain in CGI. March is their currently planned released date where Mr. Claw and others will become quickly targeted again by Inspector. You can check out their official trailer down below.

I am so glad to see how this show will go. I hope that it will be as delightful and fun for kids to watch. If they do it as well as Garfield was for Cartoon Network. If they can keep it as true as that, then I think they will find their 22 episodes season to be successful. The real challenge will be how their viewers will feel about the more modern take of classic show.

New Projects: Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Alien’, Will Ferrell, and ‘Duck Tales’

26 February 2015 10:53 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

New Projects is a weekly round up of movies and TV shows recently announced and currently in development for the near future. 

To be honest, I was a little skeptical of the news last week that Neill Blomkamp would be helming an Alien remake. Elysium was a bust, the jury is still out on Chappie, I personally think District 9 is a little overrated, and just how many Alien remakes, sequels, prequels, and video game spin-offs do we even need? But after speaking with EW, Blomkamp confirmed that Ripley is supposed to appear in his new movie, and that Sigourney Weaver, after working with him on Chappie, is on board to reprise her iconic role.

Over the years, I came up with a story for a film in that universe that I wanted to make. And then when I talked to her about her experience making those films and what »

7 '90s Kids Cartoons We'd Like to Reboot

25 February 2015 7:37 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On the heels of Disney Xd's DuckTales revival, and Netflix bringing back Inspector Gadget and Danger Mouse, we started thinking about other cartoons that could be due for a reboot.

News: DuckTales is Coming Back to TV!

Here's seven animated series we're starting to feel nostalgia for that could give joy to a new generation.

1. Darkwing Duck: The feel of the show isn't that far away from Inspector Gadget, and who doesn't like a masked superhero?

2. Rocko's Modern Life: The humor of this show was pretty sophisticated for a cartoon, giving it an appeal to kids and parents alike.

3. Dexter's Laboratory: If The Powerpuff Girls could get a reboot, surely we should get the chance to see Dexter back in his lab. The brother-sister/odd couple comedy duo of a mad scientist child and his annoying sister Dee Dee is one of the best of all time.

4. Johnny Bravo: »

Nostalgia Alert! 'DuckTales' and 'Inspector Gadget' Getting Reboots

25 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ready for a blast from the past? Classic '80s cartoon series "DuckTales" and "Inspector Gadget" are getting rebooted for a new generation of kids.

Disney Xd is reviving "DuckTales," which follows the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his mischievous grandnephews Huey, Dewy, and Louie. And Netflix has acquired a new version of "Inspector Gadget," which has already aired in Europe. In the original cartoon, the titular, dim-witted detective solved cases with a big helping hand (and paw) from his clever niece, Penny, and their super-smart dog, Brain.

"We think that kids are going to love the show," said Erik Barmack, Netflix's vice president of global independent content, "but it's also going to get some co-viewing because there is a generation of parents who grew up on the original."

"Inspector Gadget" will available to stream in March; the new "DuckTales" will air on Disney Xd at an unknown date. »

Netflix Nabs "Gadget," "Danger Mouse" Reboots

25 February 2015 7:41 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"DuckTales" isn't the only 1980s cartoon getting revived. Netflix has ordered five new children's series, including reboots of the classics "Inspector Gadget" and "Danger Mouse".

Like the original cartoon, the new 'Gadget' follows a bumbling detective outfitted with crazy, high-tech gear that he uses while tracking down the crime syndicate Mad.

Technically the show is being setup as a sequel rather than a restart, Gadget comes out of retirement and his helped by his now older niece Penny and dog Brain to fight crime.

One change though is a switch to computer animation, and rather primitive looking CG animation at that. The new 'Gadget', which has already aired in Europe, is slated to debut on the streaming service next month.

The new "Danger Mouse" isn't slated to premiere until spring next year. The other three shows on Netflix's order include "Bottersnikes & Gumbles," "Super 4" and the live-action "Some Assembly Required".
