File this under “interesting.”
Brian Lowry of CNN recently penned a review entitled, “Kim Possible kicks off Disney live-action adaptation parade.”
In it he wrote:
Disney’s upcoming movies include a trio of big-budget adaptations of its animated hits and a steady dose of superheroes. Its TV arm beats the studio to the punch and round-house kick, however, with “Kim Possible,” a Disney Channel live-action movie based on the animated series
“Kim Possible” represents a totally homegrown concept, having begun as an animated show — about a “basic average girl,” as the catchy theme song goes, who spends her spare time saving the world as a secret agent when not surviving high school — that made its debut in 2002 and ran for five seasons.
I say this is “interesting” because I hadn’t thought of Kim Possible being the first of this sort of programming; however, in essence, it really is a trend that will continue onto Disney+ and beyond.
I’m ready and down for it. But what about you? Is the “live-action reboot” a trend that you are happy to see continue onto the small screen?
