ProductionEdit

DevelopmentEdit

Gary-ross-premiere-the-hunger-games-01

Gary Ross, at the The Hunger Games events in 2012 and also who directed the last four Jane Hoop Elementary films, is chosen to direct the film.

A spin-off series was confirmed secrectly by Christensen on June 2014 to be in the works. She admits that the series will be inspired from Christensen's book, Heroes Forever: The New Beginning. It was confirmed that the spin-off will be a trilogy. Film distributor Paramount Pictures dated the first film to be released on November 11, 2016. The second film, entitled Heroes Forever: The Next Chapter, has confirmed a November 10, 2017 release date, and third Heroes Forever: The Finale for November 9, 2018. The series will be more of a sequel/spin-off series from the Jane Hoop Elementary film series.

The franchise will be based on the series spin-off, Heroes Forever: The New Beginning taking place about 13 years after the events from Jane Hoop Elementary: The Final Rush - Part 2, focusing on teenagers, who happen to be children of the original superheroes before they were born, defending the world. It was revealed that the enemy will be the brother of late sister Dr. Catwoman, the original heroes' enemy, who is trying to kill the heroes as to take revenge for the heroes who retired by destroying their kids.

Producers of the original film series, Derek Todd and Drake Jones both decided to come back and work on Christensen's project. Jones admits "Rita's plans is completely brilliant". Christen also got involved being producer for the film, making it the debut of working for films. Gary Ross, who directs the last four Hoop films, confirms that he will be directing the film.

Christensen states that the spin off series feels like: "since Jane Hoop Elementary story begins with younger kids first experiencing their first mission together as children, we will see the next new heroes beginning their first experience as teenagers, but felt like that would also have a mini scene where kids were playing around with their super powers as younger children, than get to their first mission as teenagers. This will feel a bit like the previous story of the original heroes [Danny, Rebecca, Alec, Cory and Jaquille], but for the new heroes [Devin, Brooke, Kurtis, Erica and Kyle], they were teenagers age between 13 to 15 when first being chosen to become superheroes instead of having written them as younger children when they first got chosen despite the original heroes were only young children ages around 5 to 7.

After discovers that the Harry Potter film franchise gets it's spin off franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and The Lord of the Rings film franchise also got it's spin off franchise, The Hobbit, Christensen feels like "since most popular film series gets a spin off, why 'Jane Hoop Elementary' can also get a spin-off?".

FilmingEdit

Filming for Heroes Forever: The New Beginning began secretly on June 25, 2015. Filming will most likely be filmed in Cincinnati, Ohio just like the original film series. However, most of the scenes from the film will also be filmed at the green screen at a local studio located in Cincinnati.

Filming for the film will have most of the scenes for this film taking place in Downtown Cincinnati, and some other scenes also being included in the film is the Cincinnati Museum, and the part where the location of Catwoman's old base, which is since demolished after Cawtoman's defeat, being rebuild for the base for her brother, who is seeking revenge on the heroes by destroying their children, who now gained super abilities. Filming for the film wrapped on January 16, 2016 back in Cincinnati, Ohio.

SettingEdit

Heroes Forever: The New Beginning will be taking place about ten years after the events from the last scene from Jane Hoop Elementary: The Final Rush - Part 2 where the heroes, now married and retired and now have children, now living a normal life and the world is now a better and safer place than never before.

Like the Jane Hoop Elementary film series, the film will be taking place in the city of Cincinnati, Ohio at the same Jane Hoop Elementary Base. The villains base, known for Catwoman's Base, was destroyed after the death of Catwoman and all of the villains. However, the same location of the base will be rebuild for Catwoman's brother, who is seeking revenge on the original heroes, who killed his sister during a battle.

Alice, who is the original Jane Hoop Elementary supporting character, will be part of the series more extended character, who happens to be replacement for Mrs. Bella Watson as Mayor of the city, wife of deceased president Mayor James Watson. However, her husband Hunter will be taking over as Mayor of the city of Cincinnati, also now known as management of Jane Hoop Elementary, replacing Mrs. Watson who temporarily becomes manager of the heroes and Mayor of Cincinnati.

The original characters; Danny Gorden and his wife Rebecca, Alec Gutzwiller and his wife Naudia, Cory Berning and his wife Stephanie, will all be absent from the first film, but will however appear in the sequels of the planned trilogy, basically supporting their children on protecting the world. It was also unsure if other character Jaquille Short will also appear as well since the story never tell if he was also married and have kids as well.

CinemaScore score the film a A on the A+ to F chart, making it the fourth film in the Jane Hoop Elementary universe that can score that grade on the chart.

Many critics are separated between mixed and positive. Some says this is indeed "a brand new chapter for Jane Hoop Elementary, calling it "intense" and "adventurous". Other says it is not as entertaining of Jane Hoop Elementary, but can be more of a Jane Hoop Elementary somewhat reboot. Critic Robert Crawford praises a mixed review stating: "a must seen movie all children and teens are dying to see", and also "but this not meant to be seen for some children because sometimes their parents might refuse their young children to see this movie because it involves action and violence, so I recommended I should have gotten a PG-13 rating instead of PG."

Other critics also praised on the actors' performances and the characters. Joey Grace of The Guardian gave the film four out of five stars praising: "Devin Gorden is nothing like Danny Gorden, but he is a true hero he is." He also praised the film "as one of the most remarkable and very action packed film ever made since The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King in 2003."

Movie critic Jonathan Ferrall gave it a positive review praising: "mind blowing, and a nice well welcome to brand new faces, that brings you into the new generation of the superhero world of five young children becoming superheroes." Alyssa Thomas score the film a A+ praising it "probably the most anticipated movie in my book."

Kevin Smith of The Guardian ranked the film a decent 3.0/5 stars and calling the film "fun and fulfilled with spectacular excitement". Robert Buckley of The Hollywood Reporter gave the film a a positive review: "Devin is nothing like Danny, but at least this is how they feel this way. Bravely and courage, it is all that matters that "braveness and courageous" makes it fell like we are coming back home so many years since we first saw Danny and the gang on the big screen."
