Ever since we found out that one of our favourite childhood shows Kim Possible was being turned into a live action Disney Channel Original Movie, we’ve been beside ourselves.
Back in March, it was announced that Sadie Stanley and Sean Giambrone had been cast as Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable respectively. Over the past few months we’ve been patiently waiting for more information, and now our wish has come true.
During Disney Channel’s San Diego Comic Con panel yesterday, the first look at Sadie as Kim Possible was shared with the world. It’s safe to say that Sadie looks amazing, and we’re super excited to see how she’s going to bring the famous character to life in the live action movie.

In addition to Sadie and Sean, the Kim Possible DCOM will also star Alyson Hannigan as Dr. Ann Possible (Kim’s mom), Todd Stashwick and Taylor Ortega as Drakken and Shego respectively, Connie Ray as Nana Possible, Ciara Wilson as Athena, Erika Tham as Bonnie, and Isaac Ryan Brown as Wade.
The movie has been written by Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley and Josh Cagan. McCorkle and Schooley serve as executive producers alongside Zanne Devine, whilst Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky are co-directors and co-producers.
In case you need a refresher, Kim Possible originally launched as an animated comedy adventure series in 2002, with the leading lady being voiced by Christy Carlson Romero. The series, which also inspired two original animated movies, focused on high school student Kim who also fought crime on a regular basis. She was aided by Team Possible, made up of her best friend and sidekick Ron Stoppable, his pet naked mole rat Rufus, and computer genius Wade.
The Kim Possible movie is due for release in 2019.
