Call me, beep me if you wanna reach me but I probably won’t hear it over the sound of myself freaking out over the new Kim Possible trailer!
Okay, fine, I know I am an adult and this movie is directed towards a younger audience, but come on, no one could seriously tell me not to freak out over a live-action Kim Possible movie. The animated TV series was probably my favorite (and probably all our favorite) growing up – the very first kick-ass female hero we were introduced to. And she was a teenage girl with a guy sidekick, not the other way around. Go, Kim!
And I’ll admit when I heard it would be turned into a Disney Channel Original Movie I was a bit skeptical, but now that the trailer is out, I see there was no need for worry. The new movie will be released on February 12, 2019, at 8 p.m., and sees Sadie Stanley as Kim Possible, which from the trailer alone, you can tell she really brings that character wholly to life.

Alongside Saddie, Sean Giambrone from The Goldbergs’ takes on the role of Kim’s trusted sidekick and best friend, Ron Stoppable. The two of them (and Rufus, the naked mole-rat) go through life as your usual pair of high schoolers: be late for class in the morning, butt heads with Kim’s frenemy, Bonnie (portrayed by Erika Tham) during lunchtime, and save the world sometime in the afternoon.
Joining Team Possible on their fight against evil – namely, supervillains Drakken (Todd Stashwick) and Shego (Taylor Ortega) – are also the tech genius Wade, (portrayed by Issac Ryan Brown) and a Kim superfan by the name of Athena (Ciara Wilson). But for our dear heroes as well, navigating the social hierarchies of high school if much more difficult than saving the world.
Other than the main cast, the Disney Chanel Original Movie also stars Alyson Hannigan (from How I Met Your Mother) as Kim’s mom, Dr. Ann Possible, Connie Ray as Kim’s grandmother, and the OG Kim Possible star, Christy Carlson Romano. Patton Oswalt will also be there reprising the role of Professor Dementor.
The movie was written by Josh Cagan, Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle, and co-directed and co-produced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky
