Saving the World Before Bedtime! New ‘Powerpuff Girls’ First Photos Released
At the TCA winter press tour 2016, Cartoon Network debuted new character artwork for the re-imagined “Powerpuff Girls,” set to debut on the network later this year.
Starring Amanda Leighton as Blossom, Kristen Li as Bubbles, Natalie Palamides as Buttercup and Tom Kenny, who will be reprising his role as the Narrator/Mayor, the new series will be executive produced by Nick Jennings (“Adventure Time”) and Bob Boyle (“Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!”).
“It has been wonderful to see this new show team bring such passion and positive creative spirit to this iconic property,” says chief content officer, Rob Sorcher. “We know that fans of every age will appreciate this new take on saving the world before bedtime.”
“It’s all the elements that we brought out last time, but there’s also a contemporary edge to it. It’s just as original as the first time around,” says Jennings.
In addition to the worldwide launch in 2016, Cartoon Network is also working with Spin Master, Ltd. to create a line of toys, dolls and more; Penguin Young Readers Group will debut a series of books based on the show; and Disguise Inc. will launch a series of costumes for kids, juniors and adults.
