It doesn’t matter where or when there’s trouble, if you just call her name — Kim Possible, Disney Channel‘s beloved children’s cartoon series, gets a live-action movie order from the distribution giant.
A newly released film trailer shows the crime fighter navigating her usual hijinks and exploring typical teenage woes. The Disney Channel Original Movie is set to premiere Friday, Feb. 15 (8/7c).
The iconic heroine will be brought to life by extremely new up and comer Sadie Stanley, who won the role after successfully auditioning this past pilot season. Her bumbling socially awkward sidekick-turned-love interest Ron Stoppable, will be played by Sean Giambrone (The Goldbergs), while Issac Ryan Brown (Raven’s Home) will play agoraphobic tech-genius Wade and Erika Tham (Make It Pop) will play Kim’s popular rival Bonnie.
Per Tvline, the movie will begin with Kim and Ron starting high school, “where Kim must navigate an intimidating new social hierarchy. Kim’s day starts to turn around when she and Ron meet and befriend Athena, a new classmate and Kim Possible super-fan who is having an even worse day than Kim.
With Kim’s guidance and friendship, Athena transforms into the newest member of Team Possible. Soon, Athena starts to eclipse Kim just as the nefarious Drakken and Shego resurface in Middleton with a master plan to finally stop Kim. Now it’s up to Team Possible to stop these super villains.”
Kim Possible‘s supporting cast will include Connie Ray (The Big C) as Kim’s grandmother, Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) as Kim’s mom, Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys), and Taylor Ortega (Succession) as evil duo Drakken and Shego; Ciara Wilson as new student Athena.
