Captain Planet is our LIVE ACTION hero, he's gonna take pollution down to zero




Cartoon Network is expanding its footprint in the film world.
 
The Turner-owned net has inked a deal with producer Don Murphy (Transformers) to develop a live-action adventure film based on Captain Planet, the world's first animated environment-saving hero created by the company's founder and environmental activist Ted Turner. ...
 
"The messages of Captain Planet are even more relevant today," said Stuart Snyder, president of Turner Broadcasting System Inc.'s Animation, Young Adults and Kids Media division. "We feel this team can bring the world's first eco-hero to life in a powerful motion picture that is not only pertinent but entertaining."

Murphy's team is set to revive a concept that originated under Turner's watch. Captain Planet and the Planeteers premiered in 1990 as the first environmental animated series on the small screen. The six-season series centered on a band of young people who combine their special powers to summon eco-hero Captain Planet to battle the world's eco-villains.

"With the earthquakes, tornadoes, melting icebergs and all the other problems threatening the world right now, Earth really needs her greatest defender," said Montford.
