As per the latest news, the upcoming famous show GCI Reboot will be more exciting, puckish, and roguish.
It is also said that the show will portray various issues related to the current times. One example of such a thing is its character being shown openly as gay. According to the voice performer of the character, this move is “a beacon for young queer people.”
The original voice cast of this renowned Nickelodeon show is making a return to this cartoon after around 17 years of time. The cast is reprising their roles as Angelica Pickles (Cheryl Chase), Chuckie Finster (Nancy Cartwright), and Tommy Pickles (E.G., Daily).
Natalia Morales, who appeared in Parks and Recreation, will be joining the old cast of the show and will be playing the character of Batty DeVille, who in the show is the mother of Lil DeVille and Phil.
As per Morales, the updates are reasonable, logical, and do make perfect sense.
Talking to the A.V Club, Morales has said that, “Anyone who watched the original show may have had an inkling Betty was a member of the alphabet mafia [a reference to the LGBTQ+ community].”
Morales further said that “Betty is a single mom with her own business who has twins and still has time to hang out with her friends and her community, and I think it’s just so great because examples of living your life happily and healthily as an out queer person are just such a beacon for young queer people who may not have examples of that,”
“And yeah, Betty is a fictional cartoon, but even cartoons were hugely influential for me as a kid, and if I’d been watching Rugrats and seen Betty casually talking about her ex-girlfriend, I think at least a part of me would have felt like things might be okay in the future,” Morales further added.
Nickelodeon Animation Studio is producing this show for Paramount+, which is a streaming platform. This cartoon will be following the mischief toddlers making things challenging for their parents who were supposed to take control of them.
Nancy Cartwright has said that “They’ve brought it into 2021. They use cell phones, they have computer screens, there’s video, they’re zooming”. She is referring to the kids.
The show premiered on Paramount+ on 27th May 2021.
