Kim Possible Live Action Movie Details

Booyah! Disney Channel's Live-Action Kim Possible Movie Has Cast Its 2 Leads


With all the TV reboots coming down the pike in 2018, it was only a matter of time before beloved Disney Channel shows started getting the same treatment. Just like the recent revival of That's So Raven, Kim Possible is also being brought back, but with a fun twist.

The animated series about a young high-school cheerleader who lives a double life as a spy saving the world from supervillains, is being turned into a live-action movie, and now we finally know who will be playing the two leads. Newcomer Sadie Stanley will star as the title character while The Goldbergs star Sean Giambrone will play her trusty sidekick Ron Stoppable. Hopefully they get Christy Carlson-Romano and Will Friedle (who voiced Kim and Ron, respectively) in there for a cameo and figure out some way to work Rufus into everything, even if it's live-action.

Kim Possible premiered on the Disney Channel back in 2002 and had a successful 87-episode run that included an Emmy nomination for outstanding animated program. And who could forget the two Disney Channel original movies it spawned, Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama and Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time? Definitely not me, considering I've had the same Kim Possible text alert since I was in ninth grade (yes, really). The script is being handled by series creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley and will be codirected and coproduced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky. The movie is expected to go into production this Summer with a release date sometime in 2019.

"Mark and Bob created an enduring character and kids all over the world found a friend in her, an average girl who just happens to spend her off-school hours thwarting evil villains," said Disney executive Adam Bonnett in a statement. "Although Kim Possible 'can do anything,' kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them. As we embark on the fun challenge of making Kim and Ron fully dimensional, I'm thrilled to be working again with Mark and Bob and to welcome the addition of a dynamic creative team – Josh, Zanne, Adam, and Zach – into a world where anything is indeed possible."

At the very least, now we all have a reason to dust off our Kim Possible Halloween costumes this year
