Back at the San Diego Comic Con, Disney announced it was bringing back the popular 90’s cartoon, Kim Possible, as a new live action movie, that is coming to the Disney Channel in 2019. The new series stars actress Sadie Stanley as “Kim Possible”, who is an everyday high school girl who, in her spare time, saves the world from villains. Sean Giambrone (ABC’s “The Goldbergs”) stars as Kim Possible’s loyal best friend, Ron Stoppable.
