Disney is planning a live-action 'Kim Possible' remake

The Disney Channel is developing a live-action movie version of cartoon series Kim Possible. The show not only offered a very catchy ringtone but a female action hero who could kick ass and live a normal teenage life. Creators Mark McCorkle, Robert Schooley and Josh Cagan are set to executive produce and are working on a script for the project, which doesn't yet have a release window. Adam Stein and Zack Lipovsky will serve as co-directors and co-producers on the film. It also spawned two animated movies: Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama and Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time. Bonnett said that the process of making Kim and Ron "fully dimensional" has been a fun process, and that he's thrilled to bring a creative team "into a world where anything is indeed possible". Kim Possible was a great formative show that discussed themes of girl power and feminism (as much as it could in the mid-2000s on the freaking Disney Channel) in the burgeoning Internet age. The show starred Christy Carlson Romano as Kim Possible and Eric Friedle as Ron Stoppable, both alumni of Disney programs Even Stevens and Boy Meets World, respectively. Because I can't really imagine a Kim Possible story beginning with anything other than "Call Me, Beep Me".

Apparently, the search is already underway for Kim Possible; whoever nabs the role will be the first actor to portray her in live-action. Either way, after a 10 year hiatus, Kim Possible warrants a warm welcome back.
