Powerpuff, the live-action reboot of The Powerpuff Girls, is still in active development at The CW, in spite of the cartoon also returning.
Announced in 2020, Powerpuff was a reimagining of the Cartoon Network classic that would portray Townsville’s greatest heroes as “frustrated twentysomethings that frown at having lost their childhood years to criminal activity combating” that “concur to reunite currently that the globe needs them even more than ever before.” The pilot for the reboot was created by Diablo Cody and Heather Regnier as well as starred Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron and also Yana Perrault as Blossom, Bubbles and also Buttercup, respectively. Nonetheless, the job has actually already suffered setbacks, including an overwhelmingly negative response to the dripped pilot script and Bennet leaving the collection. Both CW CEO Mark Pedowitz as well as TVLine have actually said that Powerpuff is still in active development.
Created by Craig McCracken, the initial The Powerpuff Girls ran from 1998 to 2005 on Cartoon Network, finishing its time on the air with 76 episodes, 3 specials as well as a theatrical feature film launched in 2002. A reboot of the series debuted in 2016 without the involvement of McCracken or the girls’ original voice stars and also was wrapped up in 2019. Lately, it was announced that McCracken would return for an additional reboot of The Powerpuff Girls in addition to his various other Cartoon Network development, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends.
” The Hanna-Barbera homecoming of Craig was a possibility we might not miss,” claimed Sam Register, the president of Cartoon Network Studios, Warner Bros. Computer animation, and HBSE. “Along with his unmatched feeling of fun and creative imagination, he’s bringing two of his greatest works in The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends and also we are so excited for these personalities to be a part of the brand-new legacy materializing at the workshop.”
Like Powerpuff Girls, the series was a hit for Cartoon Network, producing 79 episodes and also 18 shorts from 2004 to 2009. The reboot will supposedly concentrate on a brand-new cast of characters and be aimed at a preschool demographic.
