The Live Action Kim Possible is Coming to DVD!
I’m sure you heard the news that Disney Channel’s Kim Possible was one of the latest Disney properties to receive the “Disney live action treatment.” Kim Possible fans were incredibly curious to see how it would turn out, so of course when the movie first aired on Disney Channel I tuned in to see how it turned out! The new live action Kim Possible is full of nods to the original animated series, including a cameo appearance by Christy Carlson Romano herself, and Ron and Kim’s hangout Bueno Nacho looking the same. Most importantly, while different actors are playing the main characters and villains, their personalities and quirks remain true to what fans know!
There are enough nods to the original, while also having a new story and having changes to align with the technology we have now. As an original Kim Possible fan, I quite enjoyed the new, which I felt was great for new audiences being introduced to our superhero girl. And for audiences more familiar with the original tv series, it had enough nostalgia with enough new to make it feel fresh while also still feeling familiar. You can watch the Disney Channel Original Movie over and over with your family when it comes to DVD March 26th! To celebrate, my daughter and I Disneybounded as Ron and Kim (she is a bit excited, if you couldn’t tell!
