The Recess Live Action Movie
Marc Gordon - August 9, 2019

Scatter Seeds Of Kindness

If you have a friend worth loving
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you
Sung by any child of song
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves you
By its humble, pleading tone
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his God alone
Why should not thy brother share
The strength of ‘two or three' in prayer?

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand
Say so. Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go
Leave them. Trust the Harvest-Giver
He will make each seed to grow
So, until the happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend

Growing up, we all had our favorite weekend cartoon to watch over a bowl or two of sugary cereal. It’s safe to say that Recess was probably one that you looked forward to watching on Saturday mornings. It was always a treat to watch the group of six friends enjoy their recess time to the fullest. 

Well, a shocking twenty years have gone by since then, with the show running from 1997 to 2001, and now a live-action movie is coming out! It’s here to offer us all a glimpse into what recess was like for the gang once they entered high school. 

The short film will bring the iconic characters from the cartoon to life, and show them as teenagers.  It’s actually a volunteer project, with the cast and crew taking part with funds raised from an IndieGoGO campaign and is made for the love of the series, rather than as a profitable project. It’s made by fans, for fans. 

It’s already reported to have an impressive cast including Benjamin Wadsworth, Sean Depner and Emilija Baranac, and although we’re not yet sure when it will be officially released, we’re so ready for recess time!
