Hollywood is bringing back all the childhood favorites; toys, video games even our favorite saturday morning cartoons. There was a television show called the Banana Splits that was about a rock band (similar to other cartoons in the era like Josie and the Pussycats and Jabberjaw) who went on crazy adventures solving mysteries.
They are back in 2019 in an all new adventure only to find out their long running variety show has been cancelled. The gang has told by their stage manager Rebecca, played by Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries, A Series of Unfortunate Events, War for the Planet of the Apes) and learns the show has been cancelled from studio executive Andy, played by Daniel Fox (Generation Kill, Eye in the Sky).
But these are not your usual happy go lucky characters. The Banana Splits Movie is a different take on the classic characters. Harley and his family go to a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for him. But things go wrong and the body count quickly rises. It looks like a fun mix of horror and comedy and I can’t wait to see what they do with this new take.
The Banana Splits Movie is out on Digital starting August 13, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on August 27, 2019.
