Although the project was only announced a month ago, Jem and the Holograms is already moving forward and, in an appropriately truly outrageous move, has just revealed the first image from the Jon M. Chu film along with the names of the core cast. Aubrey Peeples will play Jem, Stefanie Scott will play Kimber, Hayley Kiyoko will play Aja and Aurora Perrineau will play Shana. Check out the tease of all four below!
Created by Christy Marx, the original “Jem and the Holograms” series was a joint collaboration from Hasbro, Marvel and Sunbow Productions. It began airing in 1985 and ran for three seasons, following the adventures of the titular Jem, the musical superstar alter ego of a young woman named Jerrica Benton who, with the help of a holographic computer called Synergy, is able to clandestinely perform rock concerts with her friends.
