Call them. Beep them if you wanna reach them.
Yup, the nostalgia of the early 2000s Disney is coming back. The House of Mouse is currently working on bringing one of their top rated shows into the real world. Kim Possible centers on high school cheerleader who is a super secret agent fighting crime and thwarting the plans of her nemesis, Doctor Drakken. The Disney series ran for 84 episode from June 7, 2002 to September 7, 2007. Disney is bringing the young crime fighter back in a new live action film. Newcomer Sadie Stanley landed the role after her first audition. Judy Taylor, Disney’s vice president of casting, said in a statement that “Sadie brings Kim’s confidence, smarts, and agility; most importantly, she’s an everyday girl with an extraordinary spirit.” Cast as Kim’s best friend, love interest Ron Stoppable is “The Goldbergs” star Sean Giambrone. According to Judy Taylor, Sean is a magnetic actor; he always finds the right balance of physical comedy and heart.
Interestingly, Sadie and Sean are the right ages for the roles – 16 and 18 respectively. While much is not known about Sadie Stanley, Sean is best known for his role as Adam Goldberg on the hit ABC series, “The Goldbergs.” He also has a hand in voice acting as well. He portrays Jeff Randell on the Cartoon Network series “Clarence” and Russell the terrier in Russell Madness. Sean was also in the “Emoji Movie” as Travis.
Only the roles of Kim and Ron are filled right now. There is no word on who will portray Drakken, Shengo, or the Possible family.
Disney announced that they were reviving Kim Possible back in February with series creators working on the script and handling executive producer duties as well. The live action film is set for release in 2019 with production scheduled to begin this Summer. Filming will take place in Vancouver, Canada.
To promote the upcoming movie, original series actors Christy Carlson Romano and Will Friedle, who voiced Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable respectively, jokingly audition for the movie in a video from the network.
