The trend for Disney producing old content into modern live action content continues. They’ve done it now with the release and production of several classic movies (Aladdin, Lion King, Mulan), and now they’re bringing back ‘Recess’. That’s right, the 3rd Street Elementary School crew is back, but now, they’re live and in living color.
Here’s a look at the cast list
- Benjamin Wadsworth as TJ
- Sean Depner as Mikey
- Louriza Tronco as Spinelli
- Lillian Doucet Roche as Gretchen
- Fritzy Klevans Destine as Vince
- Clive Holloway as Gus
- Adam DiMarco as everyone’s favorite snitch, Randall
What makes this project so great outside of the nostalgia factor is the fact that it will be released online for free. A smaller lower budget project for Disney, who will turn around any proceeds and earnings through donations and advertisements back into paying for the project. Get ready for ‘Recess’ again, coming this August!
