Captain Planet and the Planeteers‘ ran for more than 100 episodes not two decades ago, telling the story of five youngsters. They represent the five continents of North America, Asia, Europe, Africa and South America, sending a message of ethnic and racial tolerance, but not only.

That’s right, the elements are five but they don’t follow the traditional Chinese symbolism. Earth, water, fire and air are combined with the element of the heart, representing the union between man and nature.

Whenever the children’s powers are not enough to stop the baddy, they put their rings together and summon the fabulous Captain Planet. When you think about, this recipe is destined for glory: strong international cast, positive message to protect Mother Earth and awesome superhero. Let’s pray the release date is anytime soon.
