It’s the news we had all been waiting for! Kim Possible OG Christy Carlson Romano will officially be involved in Disney Channel’s upcoming live-action film. Romano voiced the titular character during the animated series’ original run and even appeared in a recent Disney marketing video used to promote the film. On top of that exciting news, the network also announced Patton Oswald would be returning to reprise his role as the villainous Professor Dementor and they dropped the first teaser trailer.
The film’s first teaser shows new Kim Possible Sadie Stanley stepping into the iconic crime-fighting role ready for action. It will also star Sean Giambrone as Ron Stoppable, Issac Ryan Brown as Wade, Todd Stashwick, Taylor Ortega, Ciara Wilson, Erika Tham, and Connie Ray. You can check out the short video below!
While Kim Possible’s mom would have been the perfect role for Romano to play, How I Met Your Mother alum Alyson Hannigan is stepping into the role, so Romano will simply be making a cameo. Romano voiced Kim Possible on the show from 2002 to 2007 for a total of 87 episodes as well as the show’s two feature films Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama and Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time. Patton Oswald (The Goldbergs) voiced Professor Dementor for 10 episodes.
Romano also starred on Disney Channe’s Even Stevens with Shia LeBeouf from 2000-20003 and snce wrapping on Kim Possible, she has appeared in The Cutting Edge 3: Chasing the Dream, Loosies, Deadly Daycare, Christmas All Over Again, and Blood Circus. In 2004 she played Belle on Broadway’s Beauty and the Beast and most recently appeared on stage in 2010’s Off-Broadway White’s Lies.
Kim Possible is set to premiere in 2019 with original creators Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley, and Josh Cagan all returning.
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
