“Sugar, spices, and many beautiful things.” And now, in addition, in the flesh. We already know how the Powerpuff Girls were formed, but what we do not know is what consequences it has had for them to spend their childhood fighting against all kinds of villains.

That’s what Powerpuff Girls, the new series from The CW that brings back Bubble, Petal, and Cactus, will review.

Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, and Yana Perrault will be the protagonists of this fiction of which we can already see the first official image. In the promotional image, they have abandoned the dresses with which they were seen during the filming and have adopted clothing much more in line with their adulthood. After all, who still wears the same clothes they wore to kindergarten? We do not know if this change will be permanent or if it will be something exclusive at first glance.

According to EW, The Powerpuff Girls will explore the lives of heroines in their twenties. They have grown up being the saviors of humanity on multiple occasions, which has forced them to take a childhood far from normal. As adults, they review the consequences of this condition and, according to the production slogan, they must decide whether to meet once again to save a world that needs them more than ever.

In addition to Bennet, Cameron, and Perrault, the cast consists of Donald Faison as the Professor, Nicholas Podany as Jojo Model, and Robyn Lively as Sara Bellum, the mayor’s secretary and true brain of the city. In the creative team, we find Diablo Cody as the scriptwriter, the same one who wrote the script for Juno and Young Adult. Executive Producer is Heather Regnier (Veronica Mars, iZombie), alongside directors Maggie Kiley, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden.

The Powerpuff Girls was an international success after its premiere in 1998. The story of three preschool girls who fight against villains thanks to their superpowers was broadcast on Cartoon Network until 2005. A total of 78 episodes gave rise to all kinds of products and, in addition to animated feature films, a ‘reboot’ series released in 2016. At the moment, the live-action version, entitled Powerpuff, is working on the pilot and it remains to be seen if it receives the green light.
