Disney has announced it will bring the rodent adventurers Chip 'n' Dale to the Disney+ streaming app in the form of a new show.
According to Variety, Chip 'n' Dale is "being developed by the company’s London-based team in co-production with Marc du Pontavice’s Paris-based Xilam." Xilam is known for kids and family hits like Paprika and Mr. Magoo.
The series will run for 39 episodes, each seven-minutes long, and will use traditional animation styles. The plot will focus on the pair of chipmunks as they "struggle with life in the big city." Jean Cayrol will direct the series and Marc du Pontavice will serve as producer.
The chipmunk pair made their debut in 1943 in a series of Disney shorts in which they were portrayed as antagonists. The duo also starred in the popular '80s series Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers. That series ran for three seasons on the Disney Channel, totaling 65 episodes before it eventually ended in 1990.
The Chip 'n' Dale reboot was just one of the series announced by Disney at this year's Annecy International Animation Festival.
Disney+ is expected to launch in North America on Nov. 12.
