There is no denying the immense popularity of “Kim Possible”, so it was only a matter of time that this animated series would make its jump to live-action territory for better or worse! Kim and Ron enter high school and become friends with Athena. With Kim’s guidance, Athena transforms into the newest member of Team Possible and soon starts to eclipse Kim. When Drakken and Shego resurface in Middleton, the team must stop them. The film stars Sadie Stanley, Sean Giambrone, and Ciara Riley Wilson. Sadie Stanley makes for a decent portrayal of Kim Possible, but the problem is that she’s too flawed and she’s upstaged but the new character Athena trying to replace her. Spoiler Alert! Athena is revealed to be a gynoid built by Drakken, specifically for this. Kim doesn’t even where are animated outfit in the movie, but its too revealing; later in the movie they poke fun at that fact. Sean Giambrone was born to play Ron Stoppable as he perfectly portrays his clumsiness and mannerisms, he’s almost too good for the role. Also Rufus is a lab experiment for some reason in his version. Drakken and Shego are easily the best thing about this movie; despite the fact that Drakken isn’t blue and Shego isn’t pale enough. Dr. Ann Possible and Nana Possible are given a huge role in the movie, but Dad and the tweebs Jim and Tim are completely sidelined. And why isn’t school teacher Mr. Barkin played by Patrick Warburton; Patton Oswalt got to play Professor Dementor? Also Bonnie Rockwaller and Wade are just there. And the original Kim Possible Christy Carlson Romano returns as Poppy Blu, a pop star which doesn’t add much. Overall this live-action Disney Channel Movie loses the what made the animated show so beloved!
