Where the Hell Are the Holograms?!?

I just watched the new Jem and The Holograms trailer and I have to ask: Where is Synergy? Where are the holograms? What happened to The Misfits? How is this a Jem and the Holograms movie?!?

The trailer shows Jerrica, Kimber, Aja, and Shana as teenagers who make it big when Kimber shares a home-made music video of Jerrica singing. The girls get signed with a mega-recording studio and create their alter egos, Jem & the Holograms.The film indicates that it will be about Jerrica’s struggle with the stress put on her by portraying Jem.

About midway through the trailer I realized I was doomed to be disappointed. There is no mention of Jerrica’s genius father or his amazing holograph generator names Synergy. Besides the fact of the names and some of the costumes I  really don’t see much of a relation to the old cartoon show I grew up with. Cmon Ryan Landels. Just take my dreams and smash them upon the all nullifying concrete of Hollywood, why don’t you? Hasbro approved this right? What the hell? What are they going to do next? Make a My Little Pony movie with real ponies who combat the glue manufacturers with big doe eyes or maybe they’ll just turn them into teenage girls?

Oh wait…

They are.
