Live-action Kim Possible teaser trailer debuts
Disney has released the first teaser for their upcoming live-action movie based on the animated hit Kim Possible. The teaser itself reveals almost nothing about the film itself, instead featuring star Sadie Stanely (The Goldbergs) against a vibrant green backdrop asking “What’s the sitch?” before the film’s title pops up.
Joining Stanley in the film are Sean Giambrone (The Goldbergs) as Kim Possible’s loyal best friend, Ron Stoppable; Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) as brain surgeon Dr. Ann Possible (AKA Mom Possible); Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys) and Taylor Ortega will play fan-favorite villains Drakken and Shego, respectively; Connie Ray (The Big C) as grandmother Nana Possible; Ciara Wilson (OMG!) as new high school student Athena; Erika Tham (Make It Pop) as Kim’s childhood frenemy, Bonnie and Issac Ryan Brown (Raven’s Home) as teen computer genius Wade.
In addition, it’s been confirmed that voice actors from the original animated series Christy Carlson Romano (the voice of the original Kim Possible) and Patton Oswalt (the voice of Professor Dementor) have joined the cast of the live-action film in undisclosed roles.
The script will be written by Kim Possible creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley (Big Hero 6: The Series, The Penguins of Madagascar), and Josh Cagan (The DUFF, Bandslam). McCorkle and Schooley will also serve as Executive Producers along with Zanne Devine, whose producing credits include I, Tonya and Easy A. Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky (both of Disney XD’s MECH-X4) will co-direct and co-produce the film.
Kim Possible got its start as an animated comedy/adventure series in 2002, centering on the title character who uses her brain, heart, and expertise to save the day. The show ran for 87 episodes and inspired two popular animated original movies. Those include 2005’s Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama, which was the first animated title in the Disney Channel Original Movie franchise, and 2003’s Kim Possible: A Stitch in Time.
The live-action Kim Possible movie will debut on The Disney Channel sometime in 2019.
