Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) and Connie Ray (The Big C) have been cast in the live-action Disney Channel original movie Kim Possible, based on the global hit animated series about an everyday high school girl who, in her spare time, saves the world from villains. Hannigan is set to play the role of brain surgeon Dr. Ann Possible (aka Mom Possible) and Ray will play grandmother Nana Possible.

Also joining the cast are Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys) and Taylor Ortega who will play fan-favorite villains Drakken and Shego, respectively; Ciara Wilson (OMG!) as new high school student Athena; and Erika Tham (Make It Pop) as Kim’s childhood frenemy, Bonnie. They join the previously announced leads, Sadie Stanley as Kim Possible and Sean Giambrone as Ron Stoppable.

The animated comedy-adventure series launched in 2002 and centered on a strong teenager who uses her brain, heart, and expertise to save the day. Throughout 87 episodes, Kim Possible traversed the social hierarchy of high school and, with her loyal sidekick Ron Stoppable and his naked mole-rat Rufus by her side, thwarted power-hungry villains Drakken and Shego, among others. It inspired two popular animated original movies, Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama in 2005, which was the first animated title in the Disney Channel original movie franchise, and Kim Possible: A Stitch in Time in 2003.

Viewers’ connection to Kim Possible also led to an off-TV franchise, including Kim Possible and Rob Stoppable characters at Disney Parks & Resorts and a line of Kim Possible branded consumer products at mass retail, soundtracks, books and games.

The Emmy Award-winning series garnered additional accolades from the Parents’ Choice Foundation, the International Animated Film Society’s Annie Awards and Italy’s Pulcinella Award for Best Program and Best TV Series for Children.

The writers of the Kim Possible live-action movie are the creators of the animated series, 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 (Mech-X4). Blyth Nailling (Last Man Standing, Scrubs) is the casting director.

Hannigan can also be heard as the voice of Fancy Nancy’s mom, Claire Clancy, in Disney Junior’s upcoming animated series Fancy Nancy, based on the New York Times bestselling books.

Kim Possible is set to debut in 2019.
