What’s the sitch? There’s a new “Kim Possible” duo in town and they’ve officially been approved by the OGs.
Back in February, Disney Channel announced its plans for a live-action version of its hit cartoon “Kim Possible.” The animated series was a fan favorite that starred the voices of Christy Carlson Romano & Will Friedle as the iconic duo of Kim and Ron Stoppable and of course these two actors couldn’t help but audition for the new version.

As it turns out, that hilarious “audition” was just a way to announce the new stars for the live-action version because it’s always nice to see the original cast pass the torch. Newcomer Sadie Stanley and Sean Giambrone from “The Goldbergs” will officially be bringing Kim and Ron to live for the “Kim Possible” live-action movie which will go into production this summer and is set to debut in 2019.
Judy Taylor, senior vice president, Casting and Talent Relations, Disney Channel, said, “Sadie delivers Kim’s confidence, smarts, and agility; most importantly, she’s an everyday girl with an extraordinary spirit.” She added, “Sean is such a magnetic actor; he always finds the right balance of physical comedy and heart. We’re excited for audiences to see Sadie and Sean bring these iconic roles to life.”
A native of Columbia, South Carolina, 16-year-old Sadie Stanley landed the role in her first-ever audition. She has since guest-starred on “Game Shakers.” Sean Giambrone, age 18, stars in ABC’s hit comedy “The Goldbergs” and will film “Kim Possible” before returning to production of that series, now going into its sixth season, this summer.
Now we just wait to hear how our favorite naked mole rat will be brought to life as well as trusty Wade. Are you excited for the “Kim Possible” movie?
