See All 3 Powerpuff Girls on Set and in Costume! The CW is developing a live-action series based on the Cartoon Network animated series, The Powerpuff Girls. Variety shared that the new series “[will follow] the titular superheroes [who] are now disillusioned twenty-somethings [that] resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?”
The CW previously announced actresses Chloe Bennet (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Dove Cameron (Liv and Maddie, Descendants), and Yana Perrault (Broadway/Musician) had been cast as the leading ladies for the series, and now we have our first look at The Powerpuff Girls in costume and in action!
Check out Dove, Yana, and Chloe on set for The Powerpuff Girls pilot:
Chloe Bennet will portray Blossom Utonium, Dove Cameron has been cast as Bubbles Utonium, and Yana Perrault is making her TV debut as Buttercup Utonium. The series descriptions of the ex-superheroes reads:
“Though she was a spunky, conscientious, Little-Miss-Perfect child who holds several advanced degrees, Blossom’s repressed kiddie-superhero trauma has left her feeling anxious and reclusive, and she aims to become a leader again — this time on her own terms.”
“Bubbles’ sweet-girl disposition won America’s hearts as a child. She still sparkles as an adult, but her charming exterior belies an unexpected toughness and wit. She’s initially more interested in recapturing her fame than saving the world, but she just might surprise us and herself.”
Buttercup was the rebellious badass of the Powerpuff Girls in its heyday. More sensitive than her tough exterior suggests, Buttercup has spent her adulthood trying to shed her Powerpuff Girl identity and live an anonymous life.”
The original animated series ran from 1998-2005 on Cartoon Network and revolved around the adventures of three kindergarten aged girls, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, whom were created by Professor Utonium using Chemical X. The girls feature an array of various superpowers. Together, the sisters fought crime for the city of Townsville, often at the beck and call of The Mayor of Townsville. The series was rebooted on Cartoon Network in 2016 and has run for 3 seasons.
Heather Regnier and Diablo Cody will act as writers and executive producers for the series. With Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden as executive producers through Berlanti Productions. Warner Bros. Television will produce the series for CW. Currently, no other casting decisions have been shared by The CW.
