Following the first teaser trailer, Disney Channel has announced today that the Kim Possible cast has grown, with Christy Carlson Romano and Emmy and Grammy Award-winning actor/comedian Patton Oswalt joining.
Romano originally lent her voice to the hit series’ iconic title character, while Oswalt voiced the villainous Professor Dementor, who he will reprise for the live-action movie. Romano’s character is being kept under wraps for now.
Sadie Stanley stars in the upcoming live-action movie, set to debut in 2019. Kim Possible is based on the global-hit animated series about an everyday high school girl who, in her spare time, saves the world from villains. Sean Giambrone (ABC’s The Goldbergs) stars as Kim Possible’s loyal best friend, Ron Stoppable.
The Kim Possible cast also includes Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother, Disney Junior’s animated series Fancy Nancy) as brain surgeon Dr. Ann Possible (AKA Mom Possible); Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys) and Taylor Ortega will play fan-favorite villains Drakken and Shego, respectively; Connie Ray (The Big C) as grandmother Nana Possible; Ciara Wilson (OMG!) as new high school student Athena; Erika Tham (Make It Pop) who will play Kim’s childhood frenemy, Bonnie; and Issac Ryan Brown (Raven’s Home) as teen computer genius Wade.
The movie was written by Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley and Josh Cagan (The DUFF, Bandslam). The executive producers are McCorkle, Schooley and Zanne Devine (I, Tonya and Easy A). The movie will be co-directed and co-produced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky (both of Disney XD’s MECH-X4). Blyth Nailling (Last Man Standing and Scrubs) is the casting director.
The live-action Kim Possible Disney Channel Original Movie is a production of Middleton Productions, a subsidiary of Omnifilm Entertainment.
