‘Jem and the Holograms’ star Stefanie Scott has a message for the haters

It's safe to say the first trailer for Jon M. Chu's live-action “Jem and the Holograms” movie (embedded below) didn't go over too smoothly with fans of the original series. But cast member Stefanie Scott (a.k.a. Kimber) is asking the doubters to give it a chance.

“I think that they have to see the movie to understand that things that they think are missing are in there,” Scott told us while doing press rounds for the upcoming horror prequel “Insidious: Chapter 3.” “It's kind of like, why would we put it all of that in the trailer when you get to discover it through the movie?”

Fans decried the absence of a number of elements from the original animated series, including rival band the Misfits, the holographic computer named Synergy and Jerrica (a.k.a. Jem's) star earrings.

“Jem and the Holograms” is slated for release on October 23.
