The Powerpuff girls live-action is supposed to be late this year but it is trouble.
CW‘s Powerpuff girls are supposed to be the continuation of the original late 90s original. I see a lot of potential with the plot and the cast but they need to fix the writing. The Reboot reintroduces the girls as adult women in their early 20s who have gone their separate ways.
They are suffering from PTSD from losing their childhood to fighting crime. They will be forced to reunite because of an evil they need to stop. Most people are negative about that concept but I see potential with the right execution. I know Diablo Cody can do better but the script that leaked online is lackluster. CW will keep the same cast but the pilot will have to reshoot and overhaul the script. It will not be picked up if that Pilot fails.
The team behind this team needs to put their things together or they will suffer the same with Adrienne Palecki’s Wonder Woman.
This week the script of the Pilot got leaked on Twitter but it is now gone because of a copyright strike. I get to read it and they need really to rework it. I hope they improve on the writing of this project. Some information I can share about the leak is that Bubbles is like the messy former child star. She holds on with the remaining fame she has and she has problems with drugs. Buttercup is an Angry lesbian who hates the dress because it is too “heterosexual” Blossom becomes an overachiever at school with an identity crisis. I want to believe in this project but they need to fix the script of the pilot because first impressions last. There are so many shows with great potential but got canceled because of a bad Pilot. I hope they can turn things around.
