The classic animated Cartoon Network franchise – The Powerpuff Girls – is getting a live-action adaptation following the three as young adults. The new adaptation will be housed in California-based The CW.
Watch the original The Powerpuff Girls opening:
The series will, however, put a focus on the trio as young adults who felt robbed of their childhood due to their constant crimefighting getting in the way of doing normal childhood things. All’s not good in Townsville, though, and they must don the very thing they resent once again.
Heather Regnier and Diablo Cody are slated to pen the script while Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden are slated to executive produce. As it stands, nothing is known of when The Powerpuff Girls adaptation will start shooting or who will play the trio of aged-up heroes.
