Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
The new school year starts off terrible for Kim. In her ordinary life her best friend is moving away, and in her heroic crime-fighting life, three of the most notorious villains in her world plan to use time travel as a weapon against her.
Christy Carlson Romano,
It's the most exciting time of year at Third Street Elementary-- the end of the School Year! But boredom quickly sets in for protagonist TJ Detweiler, as his friends (the other 5 protagonist children) are headed for Summer Camp. One day, while passing by the school on his bike, he notices a green glow coming from the school's auditorium. This is the work of the insidious ex-principal of Third Street, Phillium Benedict and his gang of ninjas and secret service look-alikes! Benedict is planning to get rid of Summer Vacation using his newly-acquired Tractor Beam, which he stole from the US Military Base in an effort to raise US Test Scores, and it's up to the Recess Gang to stop him! In the end, TJ and the gang, with the help from the other students, Principal Prickly, Ms. Finster and the other teachers, destroy the laser, Benedict and his henchmen are arrested, and the kids (TJ's buddies) decide to spend their Summer with TJ.

T.J. rides his bike by the school & see the glowing green light in the windows of the school. The recess gang stand outside the school and see the giant tractor beam device rise out of the roof of the school and shoot a beam & yet we're suppose to believe that no one else in the neighbourhood or throughout the town notice this happening at the school.

When the Walt Disney pictures logo forms, T.J., Spinelli, Mikey, Gretchen, Gus, and Vince appear on the logo and blow their kazoos to the tune of the Walt Disney Pictures logo music. See more »
This is a likeable cartoon feature for both parents and children because it moves along and holds your attention. Fortunately, no one bursts out singing, but the oldies background music is a plus. James Woods does a fine job as the voice of the baddie. NOTE : Have never seen the TV show so am judging the film on its own.
