On Tuesday, Variety announced that Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, and Yana Perrault would be playing the three girls for The CW's upcoming show.
According to reports, Chloe Bennet will be playing Blossom Utonium.
Her character is described as someone who has a "repressed kiddie-superhero trauma" that left her feeling anxious and withdrawn. "She aims to become a leader again - this time on her terms."
Many remember the animated Blossom as someone who's Little Miss Perfect, spunky and conscientious, but this time, Blossom will be a whole different person.
Dove Cameron will be playing Bubbles Utonium.
In the cartoon, she was a sweet girl who had a great disposition that won everybody's hearts.
Though she's still the same right now, many will be shocked by her incredible toughness and wit, which wasn't previously shown in the animation.
However, now that she's older, Bubbles is more interested in becoming famous instead of saving the world.
Yana Perrault will play Buttercup Utonium.
In the animation, Butter was rebellious and a badass. But unlike Bubbles, Buttercup is spending most of her adulthood trying to get away from her Powerpuff Girl identity and would rather live an anonymous life.
