Fans are really excited to see their favorite childhood cartoon characters literally come to life before their very eyes! In case you haven’t heard, a live-action remake of the Powerpuff Girls is in the making, and CW has released the first look at the talented actors who step into both the roles and the plot!
Dove Cameron, Chloe Bennet and Yana Perrault will portray adult versions of the iconic little girls made with spices, sugar and all kinds of cute things!
Unfortunately this started with some controversy!
Last week, some pictures from the set of the live-action reboot popped up on social media, and fans didn’t get away with it when they saw the boxy, colorful, Halloween-costume-looking cheap clothes the actresses were wearing.
They looked just like the outfits the cartoon characters are wearing, but many were just expecting something better and more realistic for a live-action remake.
The CW quickly released an update, however, reassuring everyone that the tape was from looking back at their teenage years and that the characters are wearing a range of “normal” clothes in the present day.
At this point, the show is, in fact, only a pilot, and the story is about the characters as “disaffected twenty-year-olds who refuse to have lost their childhoods to fighting crime”.
They have to decide if they want to reunite “now that the world needs them more than ever”.
And that’s not all! The network even released a more detailed description of each of the main characters.
For Blosson it says, “Although she was a spunky, conscientious little-miss-perfect with multiple advanced degrees, Blossom’s repressed kiddie-superhero trauma has made her anxious and withdrawn and eager to be a leader again – hers this time own terms. ‘
The description of Bubbles reads: “Bubbles”, the disposition of cute girls, conquered America’s hearts as a child. She still sparkles as an adult, but her charming exterior hides unexpected tenacity and wit. She is initially more interested in regaining fame than saving the world, but she might surprise us and herself. ‘
After all, ‘Buttercup was the Powerpuff Girls’ rebellious evil in its prime. Buttercup is more sensitive than her appearance suggests and has spent her adulthood losing her Powerpuff identity and simply leading an anonymous life. ‘
