The CW has found its trio to bring the iconic Powerpuff girls cartoon to life.
Dove Cameron, Chloe Bennet and Yana Perrault will be suiting up as the Utonium sisters according to Deadline. The CW pilot will be written by Diabo Cody and Heather Regnier and will be based on the beloved Cartoon Network series. It follows the trio, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, 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?
So, who will be playing which sister? Chloe Bennet will be playing Blossom Utonium. As a child, she was a spunky, conscientious, Little-Miss-Perfect child who holds several advanced degrees. Now, 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.
Dove Cameron will play Bubbles Utonium. As a child, Bubbles’ sweet-girl disposition won America’s hearts. Now, 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.
Yana Perrault will play Buttercup Utonium. As a child, Buttercup was the rebellious badass of The Powerpuff Girls in its heyday. Now, she is more sensitive than her tough exterior suggests. She has spent her adulthood trying to shed her Powerpuff Girl identity and live an anonymous life.
The show will reunite Bennet and Cameron, who both appeared in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Bennet starred on AOS for 7 seasons and also appeared in the musical remake of Valley Girl. Cameron is best known for her work in “Liv & Maddie,” the “Descendants” franchise and “Hairspray Live.” Perrault hails from Broadway where she appeared in “Jagged Little Pill.” All three of these talented actors also sing so could that be an element to this new show?
“The Powerpuff Girls” is produced by Berlanti Productions and Vita Vera Films in association with Warner Bros. Television.
