Earlier this year it was announced that a live-action Kim Possible Movie would be coming to Disney Channel in 2019 and now we have a look at our villains for the film thanks to Entertainment Weekly! (Cue maniacal laugh track, Muah hahaha)
Our favorite teen-spirited, crime fighting heroine is back and ready to kick some butt! Kim Possible (Sadie Stanley) and Ron Stoppable (Sean Giambrone) will be facing their dastardly foes, Dr. Drakken (Todd Stashwick) and Shego (Taylor Ortega) as the main villains of the film. Kim and Ron will also be fighting other trouble makers from the animated series, such as Professor Dementor (Patton Oswalt).
Take a look at Sadie Stanley dressed as Kim Possible for the Disney Channel Original Movie. We’d say she fits the bill, and we can’t wait to see her crime fighting moves on screen in 2019. You can also check out the trailer for the Kim Possible Movie HERE.
But what is a hero without their villains?
Those with a keen eye may have noticed Dr. Drakken is a little less blue than he was in the animated series. Co-directors Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky did this intentionally. “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.”
As for his more green-hued assistant Shego, she still rocks a green and black jumpsuit, but with some noticeable changes to the suit. “Shego is one of the funniest characters from the original show, but she’s also incredibly tough. We had to find someone who could be hilarious and pull off the eye rolls and nail filing that Shego’s known for, while still being physically threatening.” says co-director Adam B. Stein. “Todd’s really tall. [In casting], Taylor was the only one who could push him around with just her presence.”
The co-director also had a comment on Shego’s new look: “When we looked at live-action versions of the original costume, it felt a bit like pajamas.” Stein says.
Take a look at Dr. Drakken and Shego’s full look below.
I would say these two look positively evil and ready to take over the world! The real question is will Kim save the day? Or will Dr. Drakken and Shego get away?
