Disney Channel is bringing the iconic television show “Kim Possible” to the silver screen on Feb. 15, 2019 with a new cast. Kim, Ron, and their newest team member Athena must team together to defeat the villains Dr. Drakken and Shego in a high-stakes battle.

I had the chance to interview Team Possible — Sean Giambrone (Ron Stoppable), Sadie Stanley (Kim Possible), and Ciara Riley Wilson (Athena)–and villains Todd Stashwick (Dr. Drakken) and Taylor Ortega (Shego). They discuss their characters, the elements of a great team, and what they want audiences to take away from the film.

The original voice of Kim Possible, Christy Carlson Romano, will be returning in the new film with a cameo as “Poppy Blu” a famous pop star who helps Kim on her journey. Another returning character is Rufus the Naked Mole Rat, voiced by famous voice actor Nancy Cartwright, known for voicing Bart Simpson and several other characters on “The Simpsons.”

Along with the airing of Kim Possible is “Fast Layne,” an upcoming American comedy television miniseries created by Travis Braun, about a couple of kids who discover a sophisticated talking car called ‘V.I.N’ hidden in an abandoned shed. The series will star Sophie Pollono (Layne Reed), Sofia Rosinsky (Zora Morris), Brandon Rossel (Cody Castillo), and Winslow Fegley (Mel).
