Back in 2015, someone in Hollywood decided to do a live-action version of beloved ’80s cartoon Jem. Sadly, they left out almost everything that made the cartoon memorable, and what we ended up with was Jem in name only. Well, sometimes, you’ve just got to leave it to the fans to do it right. The new fan film Truly Outrageous: A Jem Fan Film!, created by the YouTube users Chickbait, is the Jem and the Holograms movie that we have always wanted.
Back in 2015, the folks at Chickbait made a video where the “real” Jem and the Holograms had to sit through the trailer to the Hollywood version, only to come out the other side with a “WTF did we just watch??” look on all their faces. This led to the far superior 29-minute fan film, which will bring a smile to the faces of any fan who grew up with the original series. Maybe the 2015 movie was worth it then if we got this delightful and loving tribute out of it?
What do you make of this fabulous fan film? Be sure to let us know your thoughts down below in the comments.
