Disney Finds It's Cast For Their Live-Action KIM POSSIBLE Movie
A few months ago we learned that Disney was going to be developing a live-action film adaptation of their classic animated series Kim Possible. The movie will air on the Disney Channel and today we've learned the two actors who will play Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable. Those young actors are newcomer Sadie Stanley and Sean Giambrone (The Goldbergs).
Kim Possible centers on a typical high school girl who, in her spare time, saves the world from evil villains. Along with her hapless sidekick Ron and his naked mole-rat Rufus, Kim took on power-hungry villains like Drakken and Shego. The comedy/adventure series ran for 87 episodes and aired two original animated movies.
Judy Taylor, Senior VP of casting and talent relations at Disney Channel had this to say about the casting in a statement:
"Sadie delivers Kim's confidence, smarts, and agility; most importantly, she's an everyday girl with an extraordinary spirit. Sean is such a magnetic actor; he always finds the right balance of physical comedy and heart. We're excited for audiences to see Sadie and Sean bring these iconic roles to life."
Fans of the original series will be happy to hear that the show's creators, Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley, wrote the script for the live-action movie along with Josh Cagan (The DUFF). The movie will be co-directed and co-produced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky, who were finalists on Fox's On the Lot, the directing competition series from Steven Spielberg and Mark Burnett.
The comedy-adventure will go into production this summer and is set to premiere in 2019.
