We are living in a day and age when all of our favorite childhood cartoons are either getting rebooted or getting the live action treatment, even Dora the Explorer is getting her own film soon. Another cartoon getting a live action remake is Disney Television’s Kim Possible and Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first look at what the live action versions of Dr. Drakken and Shego are going to look like, check it out in the link below!
The mad scientist Dr. Drakken will be played by Todd Stashwick, while his partner in crime Shego will be played by Taylor Ortega. They will be part of a Disney Channel original movie that is scheduled to be released sometime in 2019. Co-director for the film Zach Lipovsky talked to EW about their choice to not give Dr. Drakken his signature blue skin and making his character more grounded. “It’s like he’s got a blue infection within,” Lipovsky says. “It’s like some experiment or some dastardly plan went wrong years ago and now he’s got this side effect where he’s got a bluish hue.”
Kim Possible aired on the Disney Channel from 2002 to 2007 for four seasons that contained 87 episodes. The show was created by Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle. This live action version will be co-directed by Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein.
Dr. Drakken and Shego’s costumes scream Disney Channel. Although this was a very entertaining cartoon our first look at the villains certainly lowers my expectations, although they have done a decent job with some of their other original films, their action sequences are always pretty mediocre.

Disney Television’s Kim Possible is scheduled to be released sometime next year on the Disney Channel.
