Another tweet that is just too hilarious not to share with you.
Live-action Powerpuff Girls is being reworked
The CW announced on Monday that the pilot of the live-action is being reworked and repiloted off-cycle, which means that it will not be airing soon. The network also mentioned that the main cast Chloe Bennet as Blossom, Dove Cameron as Bubbles, and Yana Perrault as Buttercup will remain involved.
On Tuesday, CW chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz said that the pilot of the Powerpuff Girls was not really working so they had to re-work at it.
He also added:
Tonally, it might have felt a little too campy. It did not feel as rooted in reality as it might have. But again, you learn things when you test things out. and in this case we felt like, lets take a step back and go back to the drawing board
Fans reaction to this?
In the beginning, when CW announced the Live-action series of the Powerpuff girls, people were really disappointed. They had better expectations from CW because it’s Powerpuff girls we are talking out. The cartoon version of the Powerpuff girls was amazing. The girls were badass, gorgeous and the whole series was appealing to the audience. People liked everything about it from the costume selection to the story-line. But when they saw a picture of live-action Powerpuff girls, they felt like that this was an insult to the original Powerpuff girls.
So, it’s great to see that the producers are making sure to make the live-action TV show work by changing it.
