While doing press for INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 Hayley Kiyoko sat down with The Movie Chickk and discussed the release of the trailer for her upcoming film JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS. The trailer hit the web last week and the internet exploded with comments from Jem’s loyal fans who mostly picked the trailer to pieces and were less than enthusiastic about what they saw.
JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS was an animated series that ran in the 80’s and followed Jerrica Benton, a music company owner who had an alter ego that totally rocked named Jem whose band was The Holograms. The band consists of Kimber Benton, Jem’s younger sister, Aja Leith, and Shana Elmsford. Aja and Shana are also Jem’s childhood friends and adopted foster sisters. The Holograms have two rival bands, “The Misfits” and “The Stingers.” Jerrica uses Synergy, the holographic computer her dad built, to project the Jem hologram over herself to disguise her clothes and features allowing her to assume the Jem persona. She does this with micro projectors in her earrings.
We do see Jem in the new trailer touching that earring so I have my fingers crossed. As a kid from the 80’s who loved Jem and still sings the theme song I had to ask Hayley about the new trailer. We talk about the trailer, what she is excited for fans to see and how amazing the loyal Jem fans are. Check out the video below to see what Hayley had to say and check back next week for the entire interview where we talk INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3. JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS opens in theatres on October 23, 2015.
