Disney is developing a live-action version of the popular animated hero, and casting has already started.
The beloved animated children's series about a high schooler by day and spy by night, which ran for 87 episodes on the network from 2002 to 2007, is now being redeveloped as a live-action movie. "Although Kim Possible 'can do anything, ' kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them".
Apparently, they're working on the casting process now, and while I'm going to save my true excitement when they reveal who will be taking up the crop top mantle, I'm at least excited to know that Disney will be investing in some of its older shows. It starred Christy Carlson Romano (Kim Possible), Will Friedle (Ron Stoppable), Nancy Cartwright (Rufus), Tahj Mowry (Wade Load), John DiMaggio (Dr. Drakken), and Nicole Sullivan (Shego), and there will be plenty of fans who are happy to see the franchise return in a new form. Her bestie Ron, and his naked mole rat Rufus, were loveable even if they only could provide emotional support. Josh Cagan will also help on writing duties, and Zanne Devine will join McCorkle and Robert Schooley on executive producing duties.
Kim Possible profiled a regular high school student and her secret double life as a crime-fighting tough girl. Current Disney programming includes Disney Channel's Raven's Home, a sequel to the 2000s series That's So Raven, and Disney XD's DuckTales, a reboot of late-'80s show of the same name.
In addition to its Emmy Award and eight nominations, the series' other accolades are from the Parents' Choice Foundation, the International Animated Film Society's Annie Awards and Italy's Pulcinella Award for Best Program and Best TV Series for Children. The movie will be co-directed and co-produced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky.
The movie musical stars Milo Manheim and Meg Donnelly (American Housewife) and follows a cheerleader who befriends a zombie at hig school.
