The trailer for Jem And The Holograms was recently released but it seems like few people think it’s truly outrageous and are simply truly outraged.
The film is based on the hit 80’s cartoon and follows a small-town girl who catapults from underground video sensation to global superstar (via Youtube). The trailer for the updated remake was released yesterday and fans have been upset about it since, thanks to some key elements from the 80s cartoon that were omitted ( a key one being…the holograms)
“I can guarantee you that there’s going to be a lot of pink. Nobody will be disappointed with the hair, makeup and the fashion,” The film’s star Aubrey Peeples teased to E! News. “We had a lot of different performance looks, each one is truly outrageous.” She’s right about one thing…it seems the only thing fans AREN’T complaining about is the hair, makeup and fashion.
Take a look at some of the Twitter responses and a special response from the voice of the original Jem below:

Only thing Truly Outrageous about #JemTheMovie is that it's not Jem. At least Michael Bay remembered Transformers had transforming robots.

Dear #JemTheMovie – you turned the story of a powerful woman CEO into a tween Hanna Montana knockoff. I wonder if anyone ever told you no.
