So, what’s the sitch? Disney has confirmed a live-action Kim Possible movie, based on the highly popular animated Disney Channel series of the same name that aired from 2002-2007.
The Disney Channel original movie script will be written by series creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley along with Josh Cagan (The DUFF) and co-directed by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky (Mech-X4).
The movie will focus on the well-loved Kim Possible and her sidekick Ron Stoppable along with his pet naked mole rat Rufus. In the cartoon series, the teenage crime-fighting duo regularly saved the world from various villains including Kim’s archenemy Dr. Drakken and his evil sidekick villainess Shego.
“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. Although Kim Possible ‘can do anything,’ kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them,” Adam Bonnett, executive vice president of original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a statement.
“As we embark on the fun challenge of making Kim and Ron fully dimensional,” he continued, “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.”
The movie is in early stages, but perhaps we will see an after school Bueno Nacho run with Ron’s signature dish the naco (nachos and a taco) or the tech-savvy genius, Wade, make an appearance. The possibilities are endless.
