Praise King Bob! The live-action unofficial Recess movie is finally here

Disney's Recess was one of our favourite go-to weekend morning cartoons.

 The series ran for 127 episodes and four movies in the late 1990s, and, really, our Saturdays wouldn't have been the same without it.


Which is why we were particularly excited when, 20 years later, a group of Canadian filmmakers made an unofficial live-action reboot of the series.

Third Street, the unofficial Recess film, explores what happened to the Third Street gang after fourth grade.

The film was recently released on YouTube following a crowdfunding campaign earlier this year.

According to the Indiegogo campaign, the film's description reads: "When Mikey gets his fragile heart broken by Ashley A, the gang (with TJ at the helm) try and cheer him up with treats at Kelso's corner store.


"On their quest to make Mikey smile again, they discover that something more sinister than a break-up is brewing at Third Street High... There's trouble lurking in the shadows and it ain't Finster, folks."

The filmmakers have said the re-imaging would be "tackling current issues like love, peer pressure, social media, identity, etc.”

The cast includes Deadly Class' Benjamin Wadsworth as TJ Detweiller; Louriza Tronco as Ashley Spinelli; and Sean Depner as Mike Blumberg.

Lillian Doucet-Roche also stars as Gretchen Grundler, with Clive Holloway taking the on the role of Gus Griswald and Fritzy Klevans Destine as Vince LaSalle.
