They’re made of sugar, spice, and everything nice, and don’t forget that little dash of Chemical X!
EW reports that Cartoon Network is re-launching our favorite trio full of adorable girl power, The Powerpuff Girls! The animation and signature style will stay the same, but they will have new voice talent! Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup will be voiced by Amanda Leighton, Kristen Li, and Natalie Palamides, respectively.
Of course, we here at The IF List, started thinking about a live-action version, and were excited to dream cast it right away! Check out below who we would cast as our favorite superheroes, eccentric villains, and Townsville folk.
Olivia Cooke is our top choice to play the self-proclaimed leader of the girls, Blossom! She has the same red hair and doe eyes, and is obviously talented (make sure to check out Me, and Earl, and the Dying Girl!).
Bubbles is known for being joyful and bubbly (except for in my personal favorite scene of hers, “I’m hardcore now!”), and we think Evanna Lynch is a perfect fit. We’ve seen her skillfully play a dreamy, adorable character like Luna Lovegood, so it’s a no-brainer! Elle Fanning is an honorable mention as well!
Isabelle Fuhrman, who’s no stranger to tough, violent characters (The Orphan, enough said), would be great as the sassy Powerpuff girl with a mean streak, Buttercup! She has the right look and attitude, so we are sold!
Though we can’t be sure whether these recurring villains would be used in a live-action version, we thought we’d dream cast them just in case! First up is Fuzzy Lumpkins, a hillbilly villain who lives right outside of Townsville. Fuzzy Lumpkins stirred up trouble in a couple of episodes, and even became the mayor in an episode! Glenn Fleshler is our favorite choice, especially after seeing him as the villain in True Detective!
Any Powerpuff Girls fan would agree with the following statement: Him is one insanely creepy character you can never forget! Tim Curry could definitely play this character with some sinister fun. Remember him in The Rocky Horror Picture Show?
THE PEOPLE OF TOWNSVILLE
Sofia Vergara may not have the red hair, but she could definitely convey the essence of the intelligent and beautiful Ms. Bellum who is always at the Mayor’s side. Christina Hendricks is also a wonderful choice.
