On the heels of set photos leaking showing the trio as the titular hero group as filming gets underway for the pilot, The CW has unveiled an official first-look photo from the forthcoming Powerpuff Girls sequel series illustrating stars Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron and Yana Perrault as Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup. The photo can be viewed below!
Written and executive produced by Heather Regnier (iZombie) and Diablo Cody (Jennifer’s Body), the live-action pilot entitled Powerpuff centers on the titular trio as disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having spent their entire childhood fighting crime and are struggling to reunite as the world needs them more than ever.
The project is being led by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. alums Bennet and Cameron along with Perrault, who are portraying the roles of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup, respectively, as well as Scrubs alum Donald Faison as Professor Drake Utonium, Nicholas Podany (Hart of Dixie) as Mojo Jojo’s son and Tom Kenny reprising his role as narrator.
Alongside Regnier and Cody, the pilot is being executive produced by Greg Berlanti (Arrowverse), Sarah Schechter and David Madden via Berlanti Productions with Warner Bros. Television set to produce the project. Maggie Kiler has also boarded the pilot to serve as the director.
The Powerpuff Girls was created by Craig McCracken and debuted in 1998, centering on Professor Utonium as, in an attempt to create the perfect little girl, ends up creating the titular trio Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup from the combination of sugar, spice, everything nice and the mysterious Chemical X. The series received rave reviews over the course of its six-season run and was broken up with a theatrical movie in 2002, which was a modest critical and commercial success.
