The Live-Action Powerpuff Girls Are Already Bonding

Some exciting news hit the Internet this week when it was announced that the live-action Powerpuff Girls had been cast. The pilot is set to star Chloe Bennet as Blosson, Dove Cameron as Bubbles, and Yana Perrault as Buttercup. Bennet and Cameron have worked together on Agents of SHIELD in the past, and it appears their connection has held. After the news was announced, Cameron posted some photos of the three women together in her Instagram Stories. The posts have since disappeared, but fan account Daily Bennet shared the images and they are warming our hearts.

The images show Bennet, Cameron, and Perrault hanging out, which has us excited to see their chemistry come together onscreen. The show got a pilot order from The CW last month and will be written by Heather Regnier (Veronica Mars) and Diablo Cody (Juno) with Maggie Kiley directing.
