THE POWERPUFF GIRLS: Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron & Yana Perrault To Lead Live-Action CW Reboot

The CW's upcoming live-action reimaging of The Powerpuff Girls has announced its leads: Chloe Bennet (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Dove Cameron (Descendants) and Yana Perrault (Jagged Little Pill)...

The Powerpuff Girls are set to return in live-action form for The CW's upcoming pilot, and the three leads (via Deadline) have now been announced.

Chloe Bennet (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Dove Cameron (Descendants) and Yana Perrault (Jagged Little Pill) are set to play Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup (respectively), but obviously not as children.

If the official synopsis is any indication, this show will actually serve as more of a sequel to the original Cartoon Network animated series from creator Craig McCracken.

"The Powerpuff Girls 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?"

Bennet will portray Blossom Utonium. "Though she was a spunky, conscientious, Little-Miss-Perfect child who holds several advanced degrees, 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."

Cameron will play Bubbles Utonium. "Bubbles’ sweet-girl disposition won America’s hearts as a child. She still sparkles as an adult, but her charming exterior belies an unexpected toughness and wit. She’s initially more interested inrecapturing her fame than saving the world, but she just might surprise us and herself.

Perrault is Buttercup Utonium. "Buttercup was the rebellious badass of The Powerpuff Girls in its heyday. More sensitive than her tough exterior suggests, Buttercup has spent her adulthood trying to shed her Powerpuff Girl identity and live an anonymous life."

Written by Diablo Cody and Heather Regnier, the pilot will be produced by Berlanti Productions and Vita Vera Films in association with Warner Bros. Television. Cody and Mars executive produce with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and David Madden. Erika Kennair is also on board as producer.
