A Live-Action Powerpuff Girls Series Is In The Works

A Live-Action Powerpuff Girls Series Is In The Works

Everyone will remember The Powerpuff Girls television show on the Cartoon Network.

The crime-fighting kindergarten-aged girls, named Buttercup, Blossom and Bubbles, were turned into superheroes by their 'father' aka Professor Utonium, who was on the hunt to create the 'perfect little girl' using a combination of 'sugar, spice, and everything nice'.

They would fight villains and protect their home and save everyone from destruction.

But those original episodes finished 15 years ago and it appears they are getting the reboot treatment with a twist.

According to the news site, the updated show will have the three superheroes as 'disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting'.

It would be pretty exhausting having to save the world again and again all before you even get your pen license and it seems to have rubbed the superheroes up the wrong way.

We've already had a reboot of the series, which went live in 2016 and finished up in 2019, but this will take Buttercup, Blossom and Bubbles out of the animated sphere and into the live-action arena.

Based off the success and hype of Disney's live-action movies like Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast and Mulan, it's not hard to see why a series like this could be an absolute gold mine.

There's no release date or casting line-up revealed in the report, so we'll have to sit and wait until we get more news.
