In the live-action Kim Possible movie, Kim and her best friend and sidekick, Ron Stoppable, start Middleton High School, where Kim must navigate an intimidating new social hierarchy. With Kim's guidance and friendship, Athena transforms into the newest member of Team Possible. She is ready to tackle the challenge head on, just as she has with everything else in life, but her confidence is shaken when she faces roadblocks at every turn - getting lost in the confusing hallways, being late to class and facing rejection during soccer tryouts from her frenemy, Bonnie.
Disney has released the first trailer for its live-action take on Kim Possible, the classic cartoon that ran between 2002 and 2007. As is all too common in life, Athena starts to usurp Kim and joins up with Drakken and Shego with an evil plan to finally stop Kim from stopping all the bad guys. And Kim Possible fans shouldn't worry, Rufus, the naked mole-rat, will be there to help Team Possible stop super villains Drakken (Todd Stashwick) and Shego (Taylor Ortega). Plus, cameos by actress/singer Christy Carlson Romano (who voiced Kim in the animated series, receiving an Emmy nomination) and Emmy- and Grammy-winning actor/comedian Patton Oswalt, reprising his old voice role as Professor Dementor.
The script will be written by Kim Possible creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley (Big Hero 6: The Series, The Penguins of Madagascar), and Josh Cagan (The DUFF, Bandslam). McCorkle and Schooley will also serve as Executive Producers along with Zanne Devine, whose producing credits include I, Tonya and Easy A. Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky (both of Disney XD's MECH-X4) will co-direct and co-produce the film.
Even though Stanley's experience with acting is limited (her audition for Kim Possible was her first ever), she whizzes through the action-packed trailer like a pro, even nailing Kim Possible's amusing personality. The movie is produced by Middleton Productions, a subsidiary of Omnifilm Entertainment, and carries a TV-G parental guideline.
