KIM POSSIBLE live-action movie announces lead cast
Sadie Stanley and Sean Giambrone have been announced as the leads in the upcoming KIM POSSIBLE Disney Channel Original Movie. They will play Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable, respectively. The movie will be based on the global hit animated series about an everyday high school girl who, in her spare time, saves the world from villains. The comedy-adventure will go into production this summer with expected release in 2019.
A native of Columbia, South Carolina, 16-year-old Sadie Stanley landed the role in her first-ever audition. She has since guest-starred on “Game Shakers.” Sean Giambrone, age 18, stars in ABC’s hit comedy “The Goldbergs” and will film “Kim Possible” before returning to production of that series, now going into its sixth season, this summer.
Writing the script for the live-action movie are the creators of the animated series “Kim Possible,” Emmy® Award-winning Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley (“Big Hero 6 The Series,” “The Penguins of Madagascar”), and Josh Cagan (“The DUFF,” “Bandslam”). The executive producers are McCorkle, Schooley and Zanne Devine, whose producing credits include “I, Tonya” and “Easy A.” The movie will be co-directed and co-produced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky (both of Disney XD’s “MECH-X4). Blyth Nailling (ABC’s “Last Man Standing” and “Scrubs”) is the casting director.
The KIM POSSIBLE Disney Channel Original Movie is set to debut in 2019.
