Powerpuff Girls Live-Action Bubbles Actress Wanted Role 8 Years Ago


Star of the live-action Powerpuff Girls pilot, Dove Cameron, has provided evidence that manifestation might actually work in the form of an eight-year-old tweet where the actress says she wants to play Bubbles. Cameron got her big break as a Disney Channel star, where she played twins on the sitcom, Liv and Maddie, and Mal in the Descendants superhero movie series.

The actress and singer¬†has been cast as Bubbles in the upcoming reboot, one of three chemically¬†derived,¬†crime-fighting superhero sisters. The original animated TV show created by Craig McCracken, aired on Cartoon Network from 1998-2005 and won two Primetime Emmys. As their origin story goes, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are¬†created by their well-intentioned scientist “father,” Professor Utonium, who intends to invent daughters using a potion made up of “sugar, spice, and everything nice.” When Utonium accidentally includes “Chemical X” in the¬†formula,¬†the girls come out with a wide variety of superpowers. Each sister has a distinct personality: Blossom is a Type A, pedantic overachiever; Bubbles is sweet and, as her name would imply, effervescent; and Buttercup is tough and rambunctious. The sisters fight one-off opponents and recurring arch-nemeses including Mojo Jojo and Him.

On Tuesday, Cameron shared¬†her own tweet from eight years ago where she says¬†she¬†would want to play Bubbles in a (then theoretical) live-action reboot of the¬†show. Of course, the live-action¬†Powerpuff Girls¬†series¬†now¬†in production didn’t exist when Cameron sent the tweet, making her dream self-casting a¬†successful case of manifestation-turned-reality. Cameron’s casting was announced today,¬†along with Chloe Bennet as Blossom and Yana Perrault as Buttercup. Here’s Cameron’s quote-tweet of her own prophecy:

Last August, a¬†reboot¬†was announced that will check in with the former kindergarten superheroes who have grown into¬†resentful civilians in their twenties.¬†So far, only a pilot has been confirmed.¬†Cameron¬†and Bennet previously worked together on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Ruby Hale and Skye/Quake/Daisy Johnson, respectively. Perrault hails from the theater world with roles in Jagged Little Pill¬†and a planned stint on¬†Hamilton¬†that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic prevented. The pilot will air on The CW with teen drama giant, Greg Berlanti’s company, Berlanti Productions, behind it.¬†Diablo Cody (Juno) and Heather Regnier¬†wrote the script and will also executive produce.

Cameron is¬†obviously¬†a great fit for the role, and¬†it¬†looks like she had an inkling that might be the case as early as 2013. Of course, she probably didn’t¬†really manifest the job with an eight-year-old tweet and¬†surely¬†had to at least audition. Cameron¬†may have even been involved in the¬†development¬†of¬†a¬†Powerpuff Girls¬†pilot at an early stage¬†and could¬†have¬†spoken¬†to her agent about wanting to play the role when she sent that tweet. Despite¬†Cameron’s¬†uncanny clairvoyance, we can probably¬†assume more went into this casting process than tweeting alone. Still, it’s fun to imagine the possibilities of manifestation by posting.
