The CW is making a live-action adaptation of the popular Cartoon Network series “Powerpuff Girls,” with Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron and newcomer Yana Perrault taking up the lead roles.
First revealed in August 2020, the “Powerpuff Girls” live-action will follow the girls, who are now in their 20s, living their lives while resenting how they lost their childhood to fighting crimes, according to Variety.

Bennet will play Blossom, the leader of the group – or at least was once the leader. She was once a “spunky, conscientious, Little-Miss-Perfect child who holds several advanced degrees,” but her “repressed kiddie-superhero trauma has left her feeling anxious and reclusive.”

Bennet is best known for her role as Daisy Johnson in “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Born to a Han Chinese father and Caucasian mother, Bennet moved to China at 15 to pursue a singing career before moving back to pursue an acting career in Hollywood, according to her IMDb profile.
Cameron will take up the role of Bubbles.
“She still sparkles as an adult, but her charming exterior belies an unexpected toughness and wit,” the description of her character reads. “She’s initially more interested in recapturing her fame than saving the world, but she just might surprise us and herself.”
Perrault will play Buttercup. In the live-action series, viewers will get to see the once tough superhero try to live her life anonymously.
If the series moves forward, this will mark Perrault’s onscreen debut. The original cartoon, created by Craig McCracken, first aired in November 1998 and ran for six seasons until it ended in March 2005.
