Hours after seeing the first images of the set of filming of The Powerpuff Girls series, which allowed us to see how the outfits of the protagonists will look in their jump to the live-action format (real action), now we receive the official logo.
The director behind this series of the chain The CW, Maggie kiley, has shared a picture from the filming set, announcing the first day of shooting to record what is the pilot episode and with which it will be decided if there will be a series or not. Through her Instagram, the filmmaker has shared an image of the typical filming chair showing official logo.
This logo reconfirms the information that had been sounding for a long time that indicated that the title of the series will be simply “Powerpuff”. Obviously the logo design can always undergo variations, once work begins on the post-production of the series if it succeeds.
In August 2020, this live-action version was announced by The CW of the cartoon classic. The cast of the superheroines was announced in early March 2021, also revealing how different the sisters’ lives will be. After spending their childhoods fighting crime, Blossom (Chloe Bennet), Bubbles (Dove Cameron), and Buttercup (Yana Perrault) have become disillusioned and have different opinions about how they identify with their superhero past and what role they should play now. Blossom wants to be a hero again, after battling her own childhood trauma. Bubbles is more interested in fame than being a hero. And Buttercup simply wants to live life anonymously.
