The animated series that inspired the film ran on the Disney Channel from 2002 to 2007. The new, live-action movie follows the adventures of Kim Possible, who is just your “basic, average” teenager who also happens to save the world on a regular basis. Casual.
The cast the ‘Kim Possible’ live action movie also includes Sean Giambrone (‘The Goldbergs’) as Kim’s sidekick Ron Stoppable, Todd Stashwick (‘The Originals’) as Kim’s nemesis Dr. Drakken, Taylor Ortega (‘Succession’) as his henchwoman Shego, Issac Ryan Brown (‘Raven’s Home’) as Wade Load and Alyson Hannigan (‘How I Met Your Mother’) as Kim’s mom, Dr. Ann Possible.
Stanley first announced that she would be playing the iconic character on his personal Instagram, saying how much the role meant to her. She said:
“I will be playing the iconic, strong, empowering character of Kim Possible in Disney’s live action original movie! I just want to say that I know the responsibility I am taking on. I know how important this character is to so many people and what she represents.”
The ‘Kim Possible’ movie is set to air sometime next year.
