Movies combining live-action and animation certainly isn't a new concept. Who Framed Roger Rabbit was arguably the first film to merge the two successfully. While we also recall classic movies like Mary Poppins and Pete's Dragon, the on-screen time humans and toons spend together is relatively short. Since Roger Rabbit, other companies have tried to follow suit, with Cool World and Space Jam still stuck in everyone's memory (the latter receiving a long-awaited sequel in 2021).
With the announcement of a Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers movie, and the early rumors of it being a hybrid film, I started to get my hopes up... cautiously. Now that I have seen it, I can't express enough how thrilled, entertained and surprised I was every step of the way.
