Puff Girls – The pilot of the new television bet already has confirmed actresses for the roles of the famous, Powerpuff girls, a trio of heroines, and actor for his mentor, Professor Utonio
Sabrina Spellman opened the door. The Winx set the pace. And now, it was their turn: the mythical Powerpuff Girls. The live-action program of the popular animated heroines of Cartoon Network will be one of the great bets in terms of television series and although details of the adaptation still need to be known, a large part of the leading cast has already been confirmed.
As reported by Variety, the plot of this adaptation will be somewhat darker than that of the famous cartoons, something that also happened with Destiny: the Winx saga. Here, the protagonists are not girls but discouraged twentysomethings who, after having spent their childhood from mission to mission to save the world, now enjoy a more or less “normal” life, until a new challenge forces them to resume their heroic task.
It was clear that finding the ideal actresses to play Blossom, Bubble and Buttercup was the first and main challenge. And the producers of The CW channel cycle – Heather Regnier (Veronica Mars), Diablo Cody (Juno) and Warner Bros – seem to have found them.
The role of Blossom, the leader of the Powerpuff girls and who in the animated series went out of his way to be the perfect daughter, was left to Chloe Bennet. The actress is more than familiar with heroines: for six seasons she played Daysy Johnson (Quake) in the Marvel series Agents of SHIELD. Here, her character will be a young woman with ease for studies, but who got caught up in anxiety and lack of company. Their goal, once the new mission that will put them back in charge of saving the planet is revealed, will be to re-embody the role of leader, but this time under their own rules.
Bubbles found its ideal interpreter in Dove Cameron. It is not the first time that the actress will put on the superhero costume: she has already played Mal, the powerful daughter of Maleficent in Descendants , the Disney film series. In addition, he shared with Bennet the set of Agent of SHIELD as one of his main rivals: Ruby. In his case, he will put himself in the body of a Bubble that continues to have the world at its feet, thanks to its charm and beauty.
The most rebellious in the Powerpuff girls, Buttercup, now lives in anonymity, without making any reference to her past full of bizarre adventures. The person in charge of interpreting it will be Yara Perrault, a singer and actress who has just starred on Broadway in the musical Jagged Little Pill , based on the consecrating album by Alanis Morrisette.
This Tuesday it was also announced who will be in charge of embodying Professor Utonio, the “father” and mentor of the group, Powerpuff girls. Who will take over the role will be Donald Faison ( Scrubs ). Now, the genius scientist will have the difficult mission of convincing Bombón, Burjuja, and Acorn to resume their heroic lives while trying to compose the relationships between them.
