We are very pleased to share the official casting news for The CW’s upcoming live-action series based on the classic Cartoon Network title, “The Powerpuff Girls.”
Two Marvel Television Studios alum, Chloe Bennet and Dove Cameron will be joined by Broadway’s Yana Perrault (“Jagged Little Pill“).
According to Deadline, who broke the news:
Bennet will portray Blossom Utonium. Though she was a spunky, conscientious, Little-Miss-Perfect child who holds several advanced degrees, Blossom’s repressed kiddie-superhero trauma has left her feeling anxious and reclusive, and she aims to become a leader again — this time on her own terms.
Cameron will play Bubbles Utonium. Bubbles’ sweet-girl disposition won America’s hearts as a child. She still sparkles as an adult, but her charming exterior belies an unexpected toughness and wit. She’s initially more interested in recapturing her fame than saving the world, but she just might surprise us and herself.
Perrault is Buttercup Utonium. Buttercup was the rebellious badass of The Powerpuff Girls in its heyday. More sensitive than her tough exterior suggests, Buttercup has spent her adulthood trying to shed her Powerpuff Girl identity and live an anonymous life.
