Cartoon Network has inked a deal with producer Don Murphy (Transformers) to develop a live-action adventure film based on Captain Planet, the world’s first animated environment-saving hero created by the company’s founder and environmental activist Ted Turner. Murphy’s partner Susan Montford and their company Angry Filmworks are also attached.

Captain Planet and the Planeteers premiered in 1990 as the first environmental animated series on the small screen. The six-season series centered on a band of young people who combine their special powers to summon eco-hero Captain Planet to battle the world’s eco-villains.
