Holy Naked Mole Rat! The Kim Possible Live-Action Movie Is Going Meta

The cast has an exciting new addition

Megan Vick

Call me, beep me if you want to reach me because there is some very exciting news about the upcoming Kim Possible live-action Disney Channel Original Movie.

The sitch is that Christy Carlson Romano, the original voice of Kim Possible in the animated series, will appear in the live-action film Disney is preparing for next year. Romano announced the news during D23's Morning on the Lot presentation celebrating the show on Saturday morning in Los Angeles. We already thought that Disney making a live-action version of the show where a high school girl gets to moonlight as a secret agent was awesome, but connecting the universes with Romano gives this the nostalgic feel we could only hope for.

There's a Live-Action Kim Possible Movie in the Works at the Disney Channel

Romano is of course Disney Channel royalty, not only for voicing Kim Possible, but for playing Ren Stevens in the Even Stevens series and movie in the early 2000s. To make this news even better, she'll be joined by comedian Patton Oswalt, who will play Professor Dementor in the Kim Possible movie.

The DCOM stars Sadie Stanley as Kim and The Goldbergs' Sean Giambrone as Kim's best friend Ron Stoppable. Now, all we need is to confirm that Will Friedle -- who voiced Ron in the series -- will be in the movie and a live-action picture of our favorite naked mole rat Rufus and we'll consider ourselves completely satisfied.

Kim Possible the movie airs on Disney Channel in 2019.
