 Based on the global hit animated series, the live-action "Kim Possible" Disney Channel Original Movie follows everyday teen hero Kim Possible and best friend and sidekick Ron Stoppable as they embark on their freshman year of high school, all while saving the world from evil villains. By their side every step of the way is teen tech-genius Wade and new friend Athena, who also happens to be a Kim Possible super fan and is eager to join Team Possible. While Kim and Ron have always been one step ahead of their opponents, navigating the social hierarchy of high school is more challenging than the action-hero ever imagined. With Drakken and Shego lurking in the wings, Kim must rely on her family and friends more than ever. Now it's up to Team Possible—Kim, Ron, tech-genius Wade, new friend Athena and Rufus, a naked mole-rat that Ron meets along the way—to stop these super villains.

If you were a kid or a teen in the 2000s... chances are you know all about Kim Possible! In fact, I'm sure many of you read the title and immediately started playing the theme song in your head! I know I did! The cartoon was a huge hit that most of us in that 20s-early 30s age group watched at least a few episodes of. I remember watching it in high school, and even now my own children have enjoyed the original cartoon too. With it's action packed fun and adventure, it was hard not to enjoy...and I'm not even much of a cartoon fan!

When I heard that Disney Channel was creating an all new live action movie based on the series, I was excited to check it out with my kids! And it didn't disappoint! I must admit I was a little curious on what to expect though. Most of the DCOM movies as of late have been... well, musicals! And don't get me wrong, I LOVE a good musical. It's great for The Descendants and even Freaky Friday, but I wasn't sure how that would work in this particular movie. This one however, was NOT a musical, just a fun, kid friendly adventure movie that the whole family can enjoy! Now I'll admit, I don't remember the original series all that well myself so I cannot speak to just how much was kept the same... I remember the basic characters- Kim Possible, Ron Stoppable, etc. and those were all the same of course but I'm sure there were some differences as well. Again, as just a casual fan, this didn't bother me in the slightest and I found the movie to be quite an enjoyable retake. I am sure that the die hard fans might have a little more to say on that subject. The die hard fans WILL however appreciate the cameo appearance made by Christy Carlson Romano- the original voice of Kim. Of course, the die hard Boy Meets World fan in me would have likewise loved to have seen a cameo made by the voice of Ron- Will Friedle... but hey, we can't have it all, right? As a fan of 'The Goldbergs' my oldest child was excited to see a familiar face starring as Ron Stoppable too.

Now, I won't give too much away about the story... but I thought it was pretty true to what I remember about the series--- action, adventure, high school and friendship--- all wrapped into one entertaining movie that my kids loved!

Kim Possible is available now on Disney Digital and DVD.
