What’s the sitch? The original Kim Possible has joined the cast of the live-action remake!
It was reported by Variety that two very familiar faces will be coming back for the new live-action remake of Kim Possible: Christy Carlson Romano and Patton Oswalt.
Romano, who you might know as the original voice of Kim Possible, has signed on to make a cameo appearance in the new film. As for Oswalt, who played Professor Dementor in the series, will be reprising the role of Professor Demento for the forthcoming Disney remake.
We’re beyond excited to see some familiar faces, uh, voices, making their appearance in the upcoming film, but that’s not the only casting news we’ve heard.
We recently reported that newcomer Sadie Stanley and The Goldbergs star Sean Giambrone will play the role of the fearless duo of Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable.
It was also reported that most of the main characters for the film have already been cast, including How I Met Your Mother‘s Alyson Hannigan, who will play brain surgeon Dr. Ann Possible (aka. Mom Possible), Connie Ray as Nana Possible, Todd Stashwick as Kim’s arch-nemesis, Dr. Drakken, and Taylor Ortega as Dr. Drakken’s sidekick, Shego.
As previously reported, Executive Vice President of Original Programming for Disney Channels Worldwide, Adam Bonnett, said this of the forthcoming live-action remake:
Although Kim Possible ‘can do anything,’ kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them. As we embark on the fun challenge of making Kim and Ron fully dimensional, I’m thrilled to be working again with [series creators] Mark [McCorckle] and Bob [Schooley] and to welcome the addition of a dynamic creative team – Josh [Cagan], Zanne [Devine], Adam [B. Stein], and Zach [Lipovsky] – into a world where anything is indeed possible.
Kim Possible aired on Disney Channel from 2002 to 2007, and we can’t wait to see what new adventures Kim, Ron, Wade and Rufus get up to for the upcoming flick.
Luckily we won’t have to wait for long! As Deadline reports, the live-action film is set to start production this summer with a debut date sometime in 2019.
What’s more? A teaser trailer for the forthcoming remake has been released by Disney, and we can’t wait to see this teenage crime fighter on the big screen.
