KIM POSSIBLE’s Coming Back As a Live-Action TV Movie

Ten years after the hit animated series came to an end, Disney Channel is beeping Kim Possible for a reboot. Except this time, the normal high school girl with a part-time job as a world-saving super spy is making the leap from animation to live-action for a TV movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kim Possible co-creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley co-wrote the script for the reboot with Josh Cagan. Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky are set to co-direct and co-produce the film, and it will be a part of the Disney Channel Original Movie (DCOM) series. Within the original show, Kim was joined on her adventures by her partner/sidekick, Ron Stoppable, a ten-year old computer genius named Wade Load, and Rufus, an adorable naked mole-rat.

Apparently, the search is already underway for Kim Possible; whoever nabs the role will be the first actor to portray her in live-action. It’s almost a shame Zendaya is so closely tied to her own Disney Channel spy franchise, K.C. Undercover, because that show proves she’d make an excellent Kim Possible. Times have changed since 2002, and there’s no reason the producers of the TV movie can’t consider more diverse performers for the main performers. Except for Rufus. As long as Nancy Cartwright wants to reprise her role as the voice of Rufus, she should be able to do that for life.

The initial report doesn’t indicate which villains will be used for the Kim Possible TV movie, although Kim’s most frequent adversaries, Dr. Drakken and Shego, seem like a safe bet. No time table’s set for the Kim Possible reboot film to head into production.
