Important Jem & the Holograms News

Last month, I shared the news that Jem and the Holograms was getting its own live-action film, and said I hoped that Aja, Shana, and Carmen would not be whitewashed. So, the film has now been cast, and the good news is that Aja and Shana have not been whitewashed.
Aubrey Peeples, best known for a role on TV's Nashville, will play Jem. Disney star Stefanie Scott is Jem's sister Kimber, Aurora Perrineau (Pretty Little Liars) is Shana and Hayley Kiyoko (Lemonade Mouth) is Aja.

Jon M. Chu is directing from a script by Ryan Landels. The director posted a photo of the full Jem and the Holograms movie cast, which you can check out below.

It's still not set in the '80s, though! But I'll take it.
