We’ve been talking about The Powerpuff Girls a lot lately, due to the casting of the live action CW show. Personally, I don’t know a lot about the animated series, but I am learning. I am learning because Dove Cameron, Chloe Bennet, and Yana Perrault are all set to star in the show.
And that’s enough of a reason to watch.
Dove Cameron recently gave an interview and talked about her casting.
“I’m so excited to be in jeans and a little blue tank top and then levitate and zoom out of a window. Please. Fighting monsters? But also specifically getting to play the Powerpuff Girls. I grew up without cable and I even knew what the Powerpuff Girls were. I’m a freak for them,” she told Nylon.
She continued, “Diablo‘s vision for it is so crazy. I can’t tell you too much about it, but it is so exactly what you would want. It’s mental.”
The show will center around Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup who are now twenty somethings who resent the loss of their childhood to crime fighting. Are the going to reunite? Will they stay pissed and apart? Who knows. But we do know that the world needs them now more than ever.
When Cameron was cast she had to keep the news to herself for a bit. She knew for about a week before she was allowed to tell the world the news.
“After I got cast, I had to wait a week before the news came out, which was an excruciating week because I’m such a fan of the cartoon. It was so hard not to talk about it,” Dove shared.
We wouldn’t have been able to keep that secret.
