‘Kim Possible’ Live Action Movie Sets Premiere Date On Disney Channel, DisneyNOW

Disney Channel

Kim Possible, the Disney Channel live action original movie based on the beloved animated series, will premiere Friday, Feb. 15 at 8 ET/PT on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.

In the live-action Kim Possible movie, Kim and her best friend and sidekick, Ron Stoppable, start Middleton High School, where Kim must navigate an intimidating new social hierarchy. She is ready to tackle the challenge head-on, just as she has with everything else in life, but her confidence is shaken when she faces roadblocks at every turn—getting lost in the confusing hallways, being late to class and facing rejection during soccer tryouts from her frenemy, Bonnie.

Kim’s day starts to turn around when she and Ron meet and befriend Athena, a new classmate and Kim Possible superfan who is having an even worse day than Kim. With Kim’s guidance and friendship, Athena transforms into the newest member of Team Possible. Soon, Athena starts to eclipse Kim just as the nefarious Drakken and Shego resurface in Middleton with a master plan to finally stop Kim.

Now it’s up to Team Possible—Kim, Ron, tech-genius Wade, new friend Athena and Rufus, a Naked mole-rat that Ron meets along the way—to stop these super villains. You can watch a trailer above.

Newcomer Sadie Stanley stars as Kim Possible, along with Sean Giambrone (ABC’s The Goldbergs) as Ron Stoppable.

Kim Possible also stars Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys) and Taylor Ortega (Succession) as evil villain duo Drakken and Shego, respectively; Ciara Wilson (OMG!) as new student Athena; Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother, Disney Junior’s Fancy Nancy) as Kim’s mom, Dr. Ann Possible; Connie Ray (The Big C) as Kim’s grandmother, Nana Possible; Issac Ryan Brown (Disney Channel’s Raven’s Home) as tech-genius Wade; and Erika Tham (Make It Pop) as Kim’s childhood frenemy, Bonnie Rockwaller.

The comedy-adventure also features cameos by actress/singer Christy Carlson Romano (Disney Channel’s Even Stevens) and Emmy and GRAMMY Award-winning actor/comedian Patton Oswalt (Veep). Romano voiced the title character in the animated series, for which she was nominated for an Emmy, and Oswalt reprises his role as Professor Dementor.

Kim Possible was written by Josh Cagan (The Duff) and Bob Schooley & Mark McCorkle (Disney Channel’s Big Hero 6: The Series, The Penguins of Madagascar). McCorkle, Schooley and Zanne Devine (I, Tonya, Easy A) serve as executive producers. The movie was co-directed and co-produced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky (Disney XD’s MECH X-4). The movie is produced by Middleton Productions, a subsidiary of Omnifilm Entertainment, and carries a TV-G parental guideline.

Immediately following Kim Possible, Disney Channel will present a first look at the new eight-part miniseries Fast Layne, with an episode titled Mile 1: the Voice in the Shed.

Fast Layne will move to its regular time slot with a second installment, Mile 2: Paid to Drive, on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 8 ET/PT. Both episodes will be available on DisneyNOW.

 Fast Layne centers on twelve-year-old over-achiever Layne, who finds her orderly life thrown into a tailspin when she discovers a sophisticated talking car named “VIN” hidden in an abandoned shed.
