Kim Possible live-action trailer perfectly recreates our animated favs


The live-action remake of Kim Possible just dropped its trailer. While being reintroduced to the newest generation of Disney-watching kids, it’s still bringing us back memories of our childhood.

In this era of remakes and cartoons being transformed into live-action films, it was only a matter of time before Kim Possible, Disney Channel’s favorite red-haired hero, was converted into something that kids who grew up with CGI and special effects in all of their favorite shows and movies could enjoy.

So call her, beep her, if you want to reach her, because Kim Possible is saving the world yet again. On December 7, Disney Channel dropped the trailer of their newest take on our early 2000’s superhero.

“A few years ago, I accidentally received a distress call. I was done with my homework, so I answered it,” Kim Possible explains in the trailer. “Now, well, I save the world.”

But saving the world isn’t all she does.

Our new Kim Possible is played by Sadie Stanley, a newly rising star in the Disney fandom. This is her first major film debut, and Stanley seems just as confident yet confused as our original Kim — overcoming the challenges of Middleton High School by day and defeating threatening villains by night. By her side is our favorite sidekick Ron Stoppable (played by Sean Giambrone), helping her to navigate both worlds.

But it wouldn’t be a Kim Possible story without the villains we love to hate, Drakken (Todd Stashwick) and Shego (Taylor Ortega). These two are back with hopes to defeat Team Possible for good.

Just like the original, this movie will focus on the story of friendship, strength, and sacrificing one thing to save another. It encourages kids to take action for what they believe in and allows them to develop their own voice. It’s also a feminist take on a new age superhero who struggles with imperfection, acceptance, and believing in yourself.

But wait, that’s not all!

It’s been revealed that the woman behind the voice of the original Kim Possible, Christy Carlson Romano, will also play a part in the remake. We’re just not sure what it will be yet, but we can’t wait for that big reveal.

Other cast members include Alyson Hannigan as Kim’s mom, Connie Ray as Nana Possible, Issac Ryan Brown as Wade, Patton Oswalt (another familiar voice from the original) as Professor Dementor, and Ciara Wilson as Athena.

The movie is set to be released on February 15, 2019, and we’re counting down the days!

While, of course, we’ll always hold onto our nostalgic feels for the original Kim Possible, it’s exciting to see that she’ll be a female superhero to an entirely new generation of kids watching Disney Channel. And that’s the sitch.
