The CW has started filming for its reboot of "The Powerpuff Girls" -- you know, the 15-year-old Cartoon Network show that featured Professor Utonium's three "daughters" who were created in his lab with sugar, spice and everything nice. This time around, the Powerpuff Girls will be played by live-action counterparts, featuring Chloe Bennet (Blossom), Dove Cameron (Bubbles) and Yana Perrault (Buttercup). Don't worry -- they still fly.
TMZ revealed the first photos from set yesterday of Bennet, Cameron and Perrault in costume:
But ever since these photos surfaced, the reaction has been one big, "No, thank you!"
There are some things that should just be left alone, and "The Powerpuff Girls" is one of those things. Unless, of course, we're talking about the "Riverdale" girls.
Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper), Camila Mendes (Veronica Lodge) and Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl Blossom) are the CW show's pride and joy, a trio that knows how to entertain both on-screen and off. As a bestie group with a blonde, brunette and redhead, it's only natural that fans immediately started making comparisons. How could you not?
The gals even leaned into it for Halloween.
At the very least, the network could have dipped into its pre-existing cast pool and given the people what they want, which is these Powerpuff Girls -- no shade to the chosen cast, of course.
In any event, we'll continue to throw our fandom behind the "Riverdale" girls, because, if nothing else, they are pure friendship goals. Here are just some of the times Reinhart, Mendes and Petsch gave us friend FOMO.
