Be ready Disney Channel lovers, your Kim Possible is coming back to save the world from Dr. Drakken once again.
That’s correct, Kim Possible Disney Channel Original Movie has officially announced its cast and the expectation is real.
Kim’s fans must be thrilled to hear the news of the upcoming live-action movies which is 16 years after the last episode of Kim Possible on the Disney Channel was aired.
This is the first time our high-school girl heroes wears her gloves and put her gears on again in a live-action movie, and of course, she won’t be without her sidekick Ron Stoppable.
Sadie Stanley and Sean Giambrone will star as Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable respectively.
The production is set for this summer and the premiere is expected to be next year. “Sadie delivers Kim’s confidence, smarts, and agility; most importantly, she’s an everyday girl with an extraordinary spirit,” said Judy Taylor, Disney Channel Casting and Talent Relations senior vice president.
“Sean is such a magnetic actor; he always finds the right balance of physical comedy and heart. We’re excited for audiences to see Sadie and Sean bring these iconic roles to life.”
The original series, which began in 2002, marked a journey of fighting Dr. Drakken’s evil plans.
Stanley, a 16-year-old girl from Columbia, South Carolina, got the role in her first-ever audition. The 18-year-old teenager, Giambrone was from ABC’s comedy The Goldbergs before getting cast as the Ron Stoppable.
The two creators of the animated version, Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley are working together to deliver the true and most authentic materials to the live-action movies by writing the script.
Adam Bonnett, Disney Channels Worldwide executive vice president praised the achievements the two creators have had and said he put trust in them in the project.
“Mark and Bob created an enduring character and kids all over the world found a friend in her, an average girl who just happens to spend her off-school hours thwarting evil villains. Although Kim Possible ‘can do anything,’ kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them,” Bonnett said.
“As we embark on the fun challenge of making Kim and Ron fully dimensional, I’m thrilled to be working again with Mark and Bob and to welcome the addition of a dynamic creative team – Josh, Zanne, Adam and Zach – into a world where anything is indeed possible. He said.
