Disney Channel’s live-action Kim Possible movie has added Raven’s Home star Issac Ryan Brown to the cast.
Brown will play Wade, Kim’s point of contact and tech wiz. Tahj Mowry initially voiced the role in the animated series. Like James Bond’s Q, Wade kept Kim and her best friend and sidekick, Ron Stoppable, up to date on the gadgets that would give them the fighting edge against their foes, most notably Drakken and Shego.
The film will follow the same plot as the animated series featuring Kim (Sadie Stanley) facing off against everyday teenage woes concerning high school as well as nefarious villains who want to take over the world. The cast includes Sean Giambrone as Ron, Todd Stashwick as Drakken and Taylor Ortega as Drakken’s droll henchwoman Shego. The film is set for a 2019 premiere.
On Raven’s Home, Brown plays Raven Baxter’s (Raven-Symoné) son, Booker, who is also gifted with the power to see into the future. Before Raven’s Home, Brown had a guest role on ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder as a young Wes/Christophe (Alfred Enoch played the older version of the character), and he has also starred on Black-ish as young Dre (played by Anthony Anderson).
