So what's the sitch on this live-action verison of Kim Possible? Well, yes, it is 100% happening and the Disney Channel Original Movie is set to premiere in 2019. You're really going to get to see Kim, her BFF Ron Stoppable, and all your fave villains from the beloved animated series come to life. To get ready for this big movie, we're giving you a breakdown of every detail you need to know.
Who is starring in the movie?
Everyone was dying to know who was going to snag these roles, and we do have our Kim and Ron. Sixteen-year-old actress Sadie Stanley will be taking on the part of Kim with 19-year-old Sean Giambrone – who you might recognize from the show The Goldbergs – set to play Ron. And they already look beyond cute together as the BFF duo.
Plus, we've gotten a look at Sadie in action as Kim too, with a teaser trailer that Disney Channel debuted.
Girl is already slaying! Of course, fans had a lot of suggestions as to which actress they wanted to see play the crime-fighting redhead, with Riverdale star Madelaine Petsch at the top of the list. So when she wasn't the one cast in the role, people have some feelings. But at 24-years-old and with her schedule packed with filming her show, it makes sense Disney Channel went with someone who is the actual age of Kim. And Madelaine even messaged Sadie on Instagram, letting her know how excited she is to see this movie.
Seeing these young actresses be so supportive of each other is always the sweetest!
Will the original cast be involved?
As any fan of the cartoon version knows, the voices of Kim and Ron are easily so recognizable. Kim was voiced by Christy Carlson Romano, a Disney Channel legend, and Ron was voiced by Will Friedle, the one and only Eric Matthews from Boy Meets World. And they even reunited for a hilarious skit dressed up as their animated counterparts pretending they were ready to reclaim their roles.
The Rufus stuffed animals does add a nice touch. But it's obvious they won't be playing Kim and Ron this time around. However, Christy did confirm she has a small role in the movie, although she couldn't say exactly who she'll be playing or what she'll be doing this time around.
"I can't say too much about my involvement yet, but I'm very excited to help usher in the strong, empowered female character I helped bring to life, to a new generation. And I'm equally thrilled to see what the original fans think," she said to People.
How exciting is that though? If the OG KP is involved in this movie, then we can trust it's going tobe something special.
When does the Kim Possible movie come out?
As of right now, there isn't a set release date for the DCOM, but we do know it's coming next year. Can't come soon enough!
