Rainbow Brite


Rainbow Brite rides again! Feeln is bringing the iconic 1980s cartoon back to life with stars Emily Osment and Molly Ringwald providing key voices.

Osment will voice Rainbow Brite, a young girl with magic powers who goes on a quest to save Rainbowland from dark forces.

"Being cast as the voice of Rainbow Brite for the relaunch of this iconic show is truly an honor. I look forward to connecting with the audience, old and new, and going on this exciting adventure together," Osment said in a statement.

Ringwald will voice the show's main antagonist, The Dark Princess. Classic Rainbow Brite characters Starlite and the Color Kids will also return for the limited series event kicking off Nov. 6. Check out the trailer above.

The character first premiered more than 30 years ago in 1983 and became a TV show that ran from 1984-1986.

"With Rainbow Brite, we believe we have created something that captures the essence of the original series—but with a vision that resonates today," Iris Ichishita, head of original entertainment at Feeln, said in a statment. "We hope audiences will react with an ‘oh my bows!'—just like us."

Feeln was founded in 2007 and is a movie subscription service for an all-ages audience. The service is available online and through stream-to-TV devices such as Roku and Xbox.

The revival of Rainbow Brite is just the latest in classic childhood comebacks. Netflix announced a new cartoon for Care Bears and the Teletubbies are also getting a reboot.
