We all know Disney’s having a mid-life crisis and is remaking all their animated classics, but I wasn’t expecting their channel to go through the same conversion.
So when I found out they had decided to make a live-action Kim Possible TV movie, I has two thoughts: This is gonna be really good, or this is gonna be really bad.
Wishful thinking hoping it would be good, since live-action conversions don’t always come out the best way. It’s like taking a character from the comics and trying to make them into real people.
There will always be complaints about how it’s not quite accurate enough, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
But how… how could they do this to the one and only Kim Possible?
Red hair? Check.
Utility belt? Check.
Black crop-top turtle neck? Uh, not quite, but I understand why they had to modify it. Having a real-life actress wear a crop top wouldn’t fit Disney’s family friendly image.
Gloves? Uh oh, I think this is becoming a trend. Not exactly the same gloves, but I guess it would be hard to find gloves like the ones Kim wears. I’ll let it go.
Those are not cargo pants. Those are green jeans with the legs rolled up. I can let the turtle neck go, and I can let the gloves go, but this is just unacceptable.
Those cargo pants were, in my opinion, the best part of her outfit. You know Disney, it’s not that hard to find a good pair of cargo pants at Walmart. If these cosplayers can do it…
…why can’t Disney do it? Quoting SyFy Wire, are cargo pants too 2002 for ya’ll’s taste?
No hate on the actor, I’m sure she’ll do an amazing job, but half the reason I would’ve watched it was her outfit. All us fans want is for a show-accurate depiction, and this is not it. This is where we draw the line.
