Ravers rejoice! It seems as if the beloved Hallmark animated television series from 1983, Rainbow Brite, is getting remade! Yes — you will no longer have to field those answering machine messages about paying those VHS overdue fees from your local (and last) video store because you still have yet to return those hardshell cases!
It wasn’t enough that Hollywood had to go and sully Jem And The Holograms with a reboot, now it’s gotten its grubby paws on Rainbow Brite–at least, if Emily Osment‘s Twitter and Instagram are to be believed. The Hannah Montana star (and younger sister of Haley Joel Osment) tweeted a picture of a script for the pilot, saying she’s “very stoked to be back doing some animation,” and indicating that she’s playing the title character. Little else is revealed in the tweet other than the name of the episode, “Cloudy With A Chance Of Gloom,” suggesting that ol’ Murky Dismal is back up to his cloudy tricks again.
No word yet as to which network will be hosting the new version of the show, but keep your cable bills paid, and soon your comedowns will be that much easier!
