Looks like all us geriatric millennials should wait slightly longer for The Powerpuff Girls to be again on our TV screens
For millennials of a sure age, the information that the outdated Cartoon Network traditional Powerpuff Girls was getting a dwell motion remake was probably the greatest issues to occur in current reminiscence. Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup had been a particular sort of girl-power function mannequin once we had been rising up, so the thought of seeing them as grownups grappling with the fallout of being youngsters anticipated to struggle crime? Well, the thought shouldn’t be solely nostalgic, however feels relatable to millennials, who’ve been anticipated to succeed like our dad and mom did on a planet and in a job and housing market that they completely destroyed.
Unfortunately, we’re going to have to attend slightly longer to see this darker aspect of the Powerpuff Girls’ story. Soon after first-look pictures of stars Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, and Yana Perrault had been met with backlash from followers, the manufacturing workforce introduced that it’s placing the present on pause and rewriting scripts through the low season.
The information was first reported by Variety, who wrote that the present’s pilot episode “is being overhauled and re-shot because the initial pilot was ‘too campy’ and not as rooted in reality as network execs would have liked.”
Honestly, I believed it was supposed to be slightly campy. But an announcement launched by The CW’s CEO, Mark Petowitz, needs to be comforting to followers who’re disenchanted by this information.
“The reason you do pilots is because sometimes things miss, and this was just a miss,” he stated. “We believe in the cast completely. We believe in Diablo [Cody] and Heather [Regnier], the writers. We believe in the auspices of Greg Berlanti and Warner [Bros. TV] studios. In this case, the pilot didn’t work. But because we see there’s enough elements in there, we wanted to give it another shot. So that’s why we didn’t want to go forward with what we had. Tonally, it might’ve felt a little too campy. It didn’t feel as rooted in reality as it might’ve felt. But again, you learn things when you test things out. And so in this case, we felt, let’s take a step back and go back to the drawing board.”
In different phrases, it seems like everybody remains to be dedicated to doing the present — they usually need to be certain they actually do it justice. While no person needs to attend by a delay, that is most likely, in the end, for one of the best.
