Added DiffLines:

* OdeToFamily: The film has the song "Sisters Are There", which is sung when Jerrica explains to Ashley and Ba Nee that, despite their bickering, they're still foster sisters nevertheless.
* OriginalFlavour: It's slightly darker than canon and has queer characters (which weren't allowed in the 1980s), but the film predominantly keeps to the style of ''Jem''.


* {{Foreshadowing}}: Kimber murmurs that Jerrica is like a robot. [[spoiler: It turned out to be the other way around. ''Literally.'']]

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: WordOfGod is that [[spoiler:Kimber]] being a robot is a queer allegory. She's special but doesn't realize it at first, but after recognizing it she becomes more curious about it and wants to explore it more.

* TakeThat: The film was made as a TakeThat to the official ''Film/JemAndTheHolograms'' film, which was an InNameOnly SettingUpdate. It was made to show that it's possible to adapt ''Jem'' into a film while being (mostly) canon accurate and still having a DarkerAndEdgier tone.

Added DiffLines:

* DiesDifferentlyInAdaptation: Jacqui died of illness, not a plane crash, and Emmett died in a plane crash, not of illness. [[spoiler:Subverted in the latter point as he faked his death]].

* AdaptationalSexuality: Stormer and Kimber are a thing in the film. It's unclear if they're dating or whether they simply like each other, but it's implied they're in a SecretRelationship. This has long been {{fanon}} and appeared in the official [[ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms comic book reboot]] as well.
