Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers debuted on Disney+ yesterday (May 20) and included a remix of the series’ classic theme song, courtesy of Post Malone.
Malone kept most of the original version’s core lyrics and melodies intact, but turned it around with his signature trap-influenced pop style.
It marks his third time contributing to a Hollywood soundtrack – in 2017 he linked up with Watt for xXx: Return Of Xander Cage including ‘Burning Man’, and in 2019, featuring ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ cut ‘Sunflower’ (featuring Swae Lee) featured in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Malone also had a cameo in the second film.

Dale, meanwhile, had CGI surgery and worked on a nostalgic circuit, desperate to relive his glory days.
“When an old co-star mysteriously disappears, Chip and Dale must mend their broken friendship and once again become the detective character Rescue Rangers to save their friend’s life.”
