I saw late last night, very cute. ^_^ Was the Dazzler one posted as well? Maybe you could add it.

Maybe it's this one - It's what was linked at the end of the video, at least.

A question popped in my head last night when listening to these. Are the lyrics from the comics?

You know I'd love to see a Dazzler, Lila or Jem comic actually record music and take advantage of AR to play it (if the Captain Marvel Lila appearances did this I missed it cause I can never get the Marvel AR app to work properly).

As is in Jem I kinda skim the singing parts but I am sure Samantha Newark would be happy to sing for Jem again.

Oh hah. She's just so into her role as Jem, and her music career that I guess I conflated them.

She'd probably still be up for recording an album for IDW... I have no idea if such a thing would generate a sales spike to make it worthwhile, but I'd love to see someone tackle the inherent issue that comics with music as a subject matter have.

This. Oh, this. It's cheesy, silly, the special effects aren't exactly the best, the acting is on the weak side, and the students are lacking their accents (Rahne's Scots burr, Sam's Kentucky drawl) and NONE OF THAT MATTERS BECAUSE THIS IS FREAKING GLORIOUS.

Guido! Stevie Hunter! Lila! Dazzler! Longshot! And the entire freaking classic cast of the New Mutants from when they were MY X-Team of choice back in my misbegotten youth. And they are almost totally, instantly recognizable as such if you remember the comics. (Okay, I briefly confused Doug and Sam because Sam should be blonder, and dammit, there were a LOT of blondes on that team, between Illyana, Amara, Doug and Sam).

The classic costumes. The it's so '80s style and the music and...

In my heart, I want a New Mutants Netflix series and a Dazzler series that employs exactly this sort of aesthetic, attention to detail, and respect for the source material that these people have demonstrated. And it makes me sad that the wrong damn company owns the mutants at the moment because if we got a New Mutants series from them, it would probably have Cannonball, Sunspot, Bird Brain, Feral, Armor, Penance,and Adam-X the X-Treme, or some other ludicrous lineup.

This is one of those things I never knew I wanted until I saw it.

I got so excited when I realized that was the New Muties and Stevie Hunter!

The strongest criticism I have is that Rahne's hair was much shorter at this time. That's how good this is.

The low-budget Warlock was brilliant. The space sequence is so amazingly 80's, it drives home how much Lila was a 1980's rock star. No, a rock fantasy, and her behavior right out of teen movies of the time.

Sam really was like that in the comics, too.

Someone has to show this to Chris Claremont.

Totally rad! I just regressed to my seventh grade self who'd bum comics off my collector friends with the promise to not crease the pages and return them to their mylar-and-cardboard homes when I was through. That instrumental section was basically Steal this Planet! in a nutshell.

Minor nitpick though: didn't Allison also play keyboards for Lila when she was with Lila's band?
