Lively, Kenny Set For “Powerpuff” Series

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

Robyn Lively (“Light As A Feather”) is set to play Sara Bellum and Tom Kenny will reprise his role as The Narrator in The CW’s “Powerpuff,” the live-action sequel series to Cartoon Network’s classic “The Powerpuff Girls” with the show’s pilot currently filming.

The new take follows Blossom (Chloe Bennet), Bubbles (Dove Cameron) and Buttercup (Yana Perreault), who used to be America’s pint-sized superheroes. Now they’re disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crimefighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?

Lively’s Sara Bellum is now a warm, witty career woman who shares a complicated romantic history with Drake and has always been a friend to the Powerpuff Girls. Bellum takes over a role voiced by Jennifer Martin.

Kenny will be reprising his role from the original 1998 cartoon and 2016 revival. The pair join Donald Faison as Professor Utonium and Nicholas Podanny as Mojo Jojo Jr. in the series.
