Dove Cameron Reveals Just Why They Are Reworking the 'Powerpuff' Pilot

Dove Cameron is revealing some details about why they are reworking the Powerpuff Girls pilot, tentatively titled Powerpuff.

The 25-year-old actress and singer is set to play Bubbles in the live action Powerpuff Girls, along with Chloe Bennet as Blossom and Yana Perrault as Buttercup.

“I can’t speak on it yet because they are still changing. Such a funny thing,” she told ET. “They didn’t decide to rework the pilot because the script leaked. I just need to say that that wasn’t what happened. We had to reshoot it anyway for a couple of reasons.”

Dove added that there are so many different factors and they are trying to get it just right.

“It’s a really big piece of IP, and it’s tonally very specific. Like getting it right, making everybody happy, and also making sure that it translates. It’s so specific,” she shared. “To modernize it and to make it fit like, a bunch of different things that don’t normally go together, it’s just kind of like a puzzle piece. So we’re removing some elements and we’re replacing others. I think the script is going to get another whack, and it’s just going to be a slightly different approach but everything else is going to stay the same.”

If you missed it, the CW’s president Mark Pedowitz said that what they shot was “too campy” and “a mess,” but they believe in the cast and crew so they’re giving it another shot.

Dove also shared how she and her co-stars are looking at this opportunity to reshoot the pilot. See what she said on JustJaredJR.com
