Disney has announced that Sadie Stanley and Sean Giambrone will star as Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable in the live-action Kim Possible, a Disney Channel Original Movie based on the global hit animated series about an everyday high school girl who, in her spare time, saves the world from villains.
A native of Columbia, South Carolina, 16-year-old Sadie Stanley landed the role in her first-ever audition. She has since guest-starred on Game Shakers. Sean Giambrone, age 18, stars in ABC’s hit comedy The Goldbergs and will film Kim Possible before returning to production of that series, now going into its sixth season, this summer.
“Sadie delivers Kim’s confidence, smarts, and agility; most importantly, she’s an everyday girl with an extraordinary spirit.” said Judy Taylor, senior vice president, Casting and Talent Relations, Disney Channel. “Sean is such a magnetic actor; he always finds the right balance of physical comedy and heart. We’re excited for audiences to see Sadie and Sean bring these iconic roles to life.”
Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky (MECH-X4) are set to direct Kim Possible which is set to go into production this summer ahead of a 2019 premiere.
