In case you missed the memo, there’s a live-action Powerpuff Girls series coming to the CW. And yes, leaked set photos and video seem to indicate that the Powerpuff Girls work in live-action just about as well as you would have expected.
Granted, it’s principal photography and there’s only so much you can do with the original designs on grown women, buuuuuut yeah.
Twitter isn’t terribly impressed, either.
It was announced that the beloved Powerpuff Girls Cartoon Network series would get the “Riverdale treatment” by the CW earlier in the year courtesy of Diablo Cody, writer of Juno.
The internet reacted. Pretty negatively, we might add.
The ill-conceived pilot episode was greenlit nonetheless, with Disney Channel star Dove Cameron playing Bubbles, Chloe Bennet as Blossom and Yana Perrault as Buttercup.
Nicholas Podany has been cast as their arch nemesis Mojo Jojo.
So an attractive young male is cast in a show rumored to take a cue from Riverdale. What can possibly go wrong?
Scrubs star Donald Faison has also been cast as Professor Utonium, for what is sure to be a very different take on the character than was was seen in the cartoon.
Nobody asked for this show. Nobody particularly seems to want this show. And the photos look like budget cut cosplay.
But hey, maybe it’ll surprise us.[Source: TMZ]
