The live-action adaptation of “The Powerpuff Girls” is in the works and has found its leads in Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron and Yana Perrault.

The reboot for the beloved Cartoon Network animated series was first announced to be in development in August last year. This time around, as grown-ups, Bennet, Cameron and Perrault will be bringing life to the superheroes who learned to resent their childhood lost to fighting crime.

Bennet will be playing Blossom, Cameron was cast to be Bubbles, while Perrault will be seen as Buttercup, said a report from Variety on March 9.

Diablo Cody and Heather Regnier will be writing for the series while Maggie Kiley will be directing it, based on the original animated series by Craig McCracken. The series will air on the American television network The CW.

FEATURED STORIES

The live-action series will be continuing the story of the animated series instead of rehashing it, the report said.

Blossom, the spunky leader of the group, has evolved into a reclusive and anxious 20-year-old in the live-action adaptation. Bubbles, who was known to be the charming Powerpuff, grew to crave fame more than crime fighting. Lastly, Buttercup grew up trying to leave behind her life as a Powerpuff.

Cameron expressed excitement over the live-action reboot through a tweet today, March 10.

“i cannot WAIT for you guys to see this show. the script is unreal, i don’t think i’ve ever laughed out loud so much reading anything,” she said, adding that she is a fan of the original cartoon.
