I can assure you that most kids came to know about the importance of Earth and the elements in it like fire, water, wind etc through this cartoon. And the most important factor of all, to use your heart in whatever you do.

But the new news in town is sure to make the Captain Planet lovers happy. After more than twenty years of hiding Captain Planet is ready for a comeback and this time he is making it big. That is right, Captain Planet is gonna hit the big screen soon and ready to take on the bad guys destroying the environment with some real life action.
Producers Don Murphy and Susan Montford along with their company Angry Film works have already signed the deal with Cartoon Network to make this environment friendly super hero a reality. Murphy assures that the movie will be entertaining but relevant to the current happenings and the message on environment is more significant now than it was twenty years ago.
Coming back of Captain Planet would also mean the comeback of the Planeteers; the five kids who came from all over the world to stay united and fight against pollution. Plus don’t forget the magic rings filled with the power of earth, water, fire, wind and heart, which when combined together bought Captain Planet to life. Murphy’s work have entertained and astonished millions of people all around the world with movies like ‘From the Hell’, ‘Transformers Trilogy’ and an upcoming Hugh Jackman movie created with Montford, ‘Real Steel’. So ‘Go Planet’ featuring Captain Planet and the Planeteers will surely keep movie lovers and Murphy fans patiently wait for this blockbuster.
