1980s power cartoon Rainbow Brite has been rebooted in a brand-new animated miniseries with Molly Ringwald attached to voice the villain. Needless to say we were pretty excited—and then we saw this trailer.
Truth talk: This is just not a very good trailer. We can get on board with a redesign and we like the new voices, but this trailer is just all over the place. It looks like a mess. True, the otter joke was very funny, but somehow this feels like it's striving for newly rebooted My Little Pony territory and falling short. Also the music, it makes it feel like a parody. DID STARLITE JUST FLEX HIS HORSE PECS? Seriously, what is going on here?
This sucks because, again, we liked the little joke. The new series will launch on Nov. 6th on the VOD network Feeln, so they still have some time to whip it together. And again, this was just a trailer, not an actual episode.
Rainbow Brite is an '80s icon, and not to be trifled with, so let's hope this gets way better.
