It’s been almost 18 years since we’ve last seen TJ, Spinelli, Mikey, Gretchen, Vince, and Gus on the same screen. The bad news is that they’re all being remade in live-action.
‘Recess’ was one of the most well-known and appreciated shows on Disney nearly two decades ago. But, good news for fans of the show, it appears we haven’t seen the last of TJ, Spinelli, Mikey, Gretchen, Vince, and Gus yet. Yes, it’s true.
A community theater in Westport, CT has raised almost half of the funds to produce this adaptation of “Snow White”. The cast will include local actors and actresses, many from the region.
The producers are currently working on hiring a technical crew to complete production for later this year. The only distinction is that the youngsters will now be teenagers.
Yes, that’s right! We’ll be able to track TJ and his friends as they go through high school and face themes including love, peer pressure, social media, and identity to name a few.
A Kid’s Crew is the team behind this live-action Recess, and they describe themselves as “die-hard fans” of the original animated series. They’re currently fundraising to fund their pet project.
‘Imagine you’re 10 years old and sitting in front of the TV with TJ, Spinelli, Gretchen, Vince, Mikey, Gus, and Randall from 3rd Street Elementary School getting up to their usual antics.
The Recess Gang begins in elementary school and spans 20 years; during this time, we experience ups and downs. In the early hours of one morning when you’re about to fall asleep, you lay your head down for the last time that night.
You dream about being a part of this group and then awake 20 years later wondering what happened to the Let’s take a look at some of the most common signs to determine whether or not you might benefit from therapy.
Benjamin Wadsworth plays TJ, Sean Depner is Mikey, Louriza Troncos Spinelli plays Gretchen, Lillian Doucet-Roche is Gretchen’s mother, Fritzy-Klevans Destine portrays Vince, and Clive Holloway plays Gus in this live-action film.
Randall, a playground snitch, will be played by Danny DiMarco. It goes without saying that the show will not be the same without Ashley and Sydney Scotia, Brenna Llewellyn, Kelcey Mawema, and Emilija Baranac having been cast in the role of this legendary group.
This project is directed by Jerome Yoo and Kent Donguines, with Mikey devastated as the rest of the crew tries to boost his spirits. The team is based in Vancouver, Canada, and they are working on a voluntary basis.
As such, they are appealing to fellow fans of the show to contribute anything they can to help them move forward with their endeavor.
