Disney Is Bringing Back Kim Possible And Our Millennial Hearts Can't Deal
If the Family Channel was your crack back in the early 2000's, you probably remember the strong, independent, badass that was Kim Possible. A high school cheerleader by day and a villain fighting superhero by night, she lived the double life we all imaged for ourselves. With her buddies Ron, his mascot Rufus (the naked mole rat) and their tech genius Wade they navigated normal high school drama as well as bad guys like Dr. Drakken and his sidekick Shego.
The show ran from 2002 to 2007 and produced a total of 87 episodes and two original animated movies.
However, if you were just as devastated that it ended in '07 as I was, no worries because we have some great news for you! Disney has decided to revive Kim Possible in a live action movie.
There isn't too much information out yet but what we do know is that the original show creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley have already written a script for it. The movie is being co-directed and co-produced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky. And a casting director has already been brought on for the project. No word just on who will be playing the Team Possible characters though.
Adam Bonnett, the Executive VP for original programming at the Disney Channel gave a teaster on what fans of the show can expect:
"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. 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."
