The Cartoon Network series Powerpuff Girls is back and the network billed it as “reimagined” ten years after its original debut.

The designs of the characters do not differ very much from the old series but the trio are voiced by a new team of voice talents : Amanda Leighton as Blossom, Kristen Li as Bubbles and Natalie Palamides as Buttercup. Tom Kenny is back as the Narrator and the Mayor. We are not sure if the girls will be fighting the same kooky bunch of villains like SHE or Mojo Jojo again though.

The story is still about three superhero girls who have to balance crime fighting and normal life, with the new show targeted for 2016 release worldwide which there is a high anticipation of licensing rights for domestic and international regions. It was announced during 2015 Licensing Expo at Las Vegas by Cartoon Network.

Emmy Award winner producer Nick Jennings (Adventure Time) and Bob Boy (Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!) will the executive producer team for the series.

It has been wonderful to see this new show team bring such passion and positive creative spirit to this iconic property,” said Chief Content Officer, Rob Sorcher. “We know that fans of every age will appreciate this new take on saving the world before bedtime.

Originally shown at Cartoon Network back in 1996, the franchise is started by Craig McCracken and won two Emmy Awards alongside five nominations and accolades from animation industry. 78 episodes were produced plus 1 full length motion picture with Warner Bros in 2002. Anime fans can spot a lot of Studio Ghibli homage in the old series too and not only that, the series is renowned for very dynamic camera angles during action sequences.

Remember, sugar, spice and everything nice and of course Chemical X.
