Captain Planet

All remember Captain Planet?

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...icaprio-938852

I wish the series was rebooted. I love how the series conspires to real life events.

In the TV show, they should add a sixth planeteer who uses the power of thunder. Someone from Australia.

And later on, Gaia could forge new rings for new planeteers to replace the old someday. When they like "graduate" or something.

If new planeteers after them, I'd imagine...
  • Earth: North America - Canada
  • Fire: Asia - India
  • Wind: Europe - England/Ireland/Scotland
  • Water: South America - Mexico
  • Heart: Middle East - Israel

I'm a fan even if it went over the top with it's message but is it really that bad if the message is a good one? In fact I think after the early 90s people stopped giving a crap about the environment because we never had any shows to educate newer generations and most forgot but things didn't get magically better and it's the reason we're in this problem now which by the way people still deny there is one.


As far as the show we do need a new one but without someone as passionate as Ted Turner I find it hard but at least we'll be getting this new movie that could get a new show into production especially if celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio want to use their influence for the greater good like he is with this movie.

The new movie's concept is cool as it's a continuation of the show and people ignoring the problems. That was always my concept for a new show so I guess great minds think alike And we're getting into fanfiction territory but I always pictured the new team including the son or daughter of Wheeler/Linka for continuity purposes and characters from countries with big pollution problems, sadly many of them would be from the same countries as the original (Mati and Gi are implied to be Brazilian/Chinese) but maybe keeping it a bit ambiguous like the originals how even if they did imply it in a few episodes.

I feel like the world has lost its way.

Maybe someday Wheeler & Linka will get married.

I wish for new planeteers from different countries to take their places someday. It's like passing their titles to a new generation.

Imagine someone from the Middle East wielding the power of heart. There's gotta be other countries who can use earth, fire, wind & water.

I don't remember much about Captain Planet. I liked watching it in the early 90s, but I didn't pay much attention to it, to be honest.

I found an old VHS tape with a Captain Planet marathon on it. I'm surprised a movie hasn't already been made.

I just hope the movie can inspire people to do good things again like in the 90s.

Plus maybe give out new planeteers after Kwame and the group. Kwame and the gang will be the first planeteers anyway.

They also should for once add a sixth planeteer this time. Australia would be given the chance.

They were planning a direct-to-video sequel movie in the late 90s, it reached the storyboard stage before being abandoned. It was called "Dark Planet"

Levar Burton and David Coburn are reprising their roles as Captain Planet and Kwame for a brief cameo in an episode of Cartoon Network's O.K. K.O
