The upcoming live-action adaptation of The Powerpuff Girls has officially began filming.
The series director Maggie Kiley took to Instagram saying Powerpuff is now underway, and she even give us a first look at the show’s logo that looks similar to what aired on Cartoon Network.
The original animated series which premiered back in 1998, centers around Blossom, Buttercup and Buttercup who are three superpowered young girls that uses their powers to fight crime and villainy in the city of Townsville.
Powerpuff Girls Create Divided Responses
In addition to the Instagram post, we now have behind-the-scenes photos and a video from the set of the pilot that were uploaded from TMZ. The photo features the main cast with Chloe Bennet (Agents of Shield) playing Blossom, Dove Cameron (Descendants) as Bubbles, and Yana Perrault (Jagged Little Pil) playing as Buttercup.
Each actress is shown to be wearing their retrospect character’s outfits that are brightly colored similar to the original animated series.
In the video, it appears that they are shooting n action scene with Bennet flying through the air as the other actress followed her. As well as you can even see Donald Faison in the background who is set to play Professor Utonium, the scientist that is responsible for creating the PowerPuff Girls. So far, it appears that the live-action is staying true to the animated series with their costumes, but as well as the house that the Professor and the superpower trio lived in that looks ripped out of the cartoon.
The brand-new reboot will be served as a sequel to the original series that will reimagine the PowerPuff Girls as “disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crimefighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?” The Powerpuff Girls will be written by Diablo Cody (Juno) and Heather Regnier (Sleepy Hollow), with the series being produced by Greg Berlanti (ArrowVerse).
At this time, the CW has not set a premiere date for the live-action reboot.
