The live action Kim Possible movie has already announced most of the cast and now we’re getting some sneak peeks!
Where there’s a hero, there’s a villain. Dr. Drakken (Todd Stashwick) and Shego (Taylor Ortega) are the mad scientist/sassy ninja duo whose plans are constantly foiled by Kim Possible.
As for Dr. Drakken’s blue skin, Stein and his co-director, Zach Lipovsky, ultimately decided to against the signature blue skin to keep the character from looking too cartoony.
“It’s like he’s got a blue infection within,” Lipovsky says of the new Drakken. “It’s like some experiment or some dastardly plan went wrong years ago and now he’s got this side effect where he’s got a bluish hue.”
Shego also got an update. “When we looked at live-action versions of the original costume, it felt a bit like pajamas,” Stein says.
The live-action Kim Possible movie is expected to hit Disney Channel sometime in 2019.
