First “Powerpuff” Official Photo Released

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

The first official photo from “Powerpuff,” The CW’s “Powerpuff Girls” live-action sequel series pilot, has been released and shows off the three stars Chloe Bennet as Blossom, Dove Cameron as Bubbles and Yana Perrault as Buttercup.

The now-adult trio are joined by Donald Faison as their father Professor Drake Utonium, Nicholas Podany as the villain formerly named Mojo Jojo, and Robyn Lively as Sara Bellum.

The new take follows the girls 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?

Tom Kenny will be reprising his role from the original 1998 cartoon and 2016 revival as the show’s narrator. Filming is now underway.
