With their powers combined, Leonardo DiCaprio, Paramount Pictures and Scream Queens actor Glen Powell are bringing Captain Planet to the big screen.

The hit '90s cartoon is renowned for teaching children about the dangers of pollution. It featured five young people from around the world with magical rings that could control natural elements.

United, they could summon Captain Planet, a superhero who helped them fight against environmental evils.

Oscar-winning actor DiCaprio is well-known as an environmentalist, producing documentaries like The 11th Hour and Before the Flood.

Appian Way, DiCaprio's own production company, has green-lit the Captain Planet film, with Powell being attached to co-write the script for Paramount.

Before too long, a whole new generation of kids could be blissfully yelling "Earth! Fire! Wind! Water! Heart!" as they take pollution down to zero.
