If you grew up watching Disney Channel in the early 2000s, you probably watched at least one episode of the classic animated series, Kim Possible. For those unfamiliar with the show, Kim Possible was the story of high school student Kim Possible who balanced cheerleading with saving the world. The show, which aired for four seasons and spawned two Disney Channel Original Movies, was a fan -avorite thanks to its wacky supervillains and support of girl power.
Well, fans of the show can rejoice. This morning, the Disney Channel Twitter account made the announcement that there's a live-action movie being made!

The film will be developed by the show's original creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley, and will reportedly be “a Disney Channel Original movie in the vein of Descendants and Adventures in Babysitting.”
The executive vice president for online programming at Disney Channels Worldwide, Adam Bonnett, told Variety about the project.
“Although Kim Possible ‘can do anything,’ kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them. As we embark on the fun challenge of making Kim and Ron fully dimensional, I’m thrilled to be working again with Mark and Bob and to welcome the addition of a dynamic creative team—Josh, Zanne, Adam, and Zach—into a world where anything is indeed possible,” Bonnett said.
There is currently no release date for the film, but I know that many people (myself included) will be eagerly anticipating this new DCOM. Now we just need to know who is going to play Kim Possible!
