Get ready to step back into the 2000s when Kimmunicator’s and naked mole rats were at the top of your wish list. Disney Channel has announced that a live action Kim Possible film is currently in development as part of the Disney Channel Original Movie franchise.
Kim Possible initially aired between 2002 and 2007 for a total of 87 episodes and the two spinoff films Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama and Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time. This animated series followed high school student Kim Possible who skillfully managed to balance cheerleading practice and defeating supervillains.
Casting has already begun for the titular role of Kim, as well as her best friend turned boyfriend Ron Stoppable. Additional characters to be cast likely include Kim’s parents, twin brothers, best friend Monique, communication guru Wade, and archenemies Dr. Drakken and Shego.
The Kim Possible film is being adapted from a script by the show’s creators, Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley. Adam Stein and Zack Lipovsky will also serve as co-directors and co-producers on the film.
“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,” said Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide. “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.”
No release date for Kim Possible has yet been announced, giving you plenty of time to stock up on your Naco’s from Bueno Nacho.
