It’s been on the cards for a while, but at long last, there are sneak peeks of what the real-life Powerpuff Girls cast will look like! And of course, redheads worldwide are on the edge of their seats to find out who will play the fiery bundle of gingerness, Blossom.
That person is Chloe Bennet, who threw everyone a visual this week. Since finding out she would play Blossom, the question has been, “But will she have red hair??”
Bennet, who is best known for her role in Marvel’s SHIELD, confirmed everyone’s hopes by sharing her freshly dyed red hair on Instagram, which is a gorgeous warm auburn shade.
By the natural-looking tone of the hair colour, it hints that the Powerpuff Girls remake will give a more realistic, modern-day perspective of the three superhero sisters, who spend their time fighting crime (and getting very angry). We hope Chloe is ready to adopt that redheaded fiery temper for the role!
The original Powerpuff Girls animated series aired 1998-2005. The reboot synopsis reads: “The Powerpuff Girls used to be America’s pint-sized superheroes. Now they’re disillusioned twenty-somethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?”
As for the rest of the cast, we know that Buttercup will be played by Yana Perrault and Dove Cameron will play Bubbles.
As filming is due to get underway soon, we can’t wait until we have a trailer to watch!
