The Junior Defenders is a 2007 direct-to-video comedy-fantasy film from Warner Bros. starring Ally Sheedy, Brian O'Halloran, Justin Henry, and Jason David Frank.
With a fanbase that rivaled Star Trek 's, The Junior Defenders was one of the top TV hits of the late '70s. 25 years following the show's sudden cancellation, a crazed fan named Norman is still obsessed with the show. In his mania, Norman treks across the country in a stolen Winnebago, kidnapping the four washed-up former child stars, Jill, Mitch, Jimmy, and Tommy, from his beloved childhood program. The kidnappings spark a national media frenzy. Once in Hollywood, Norman takes over a soundstage and forces the cast at gunpoint to act in his brand-new episode of The Junior Defenders.
