It’s a possible comeback! 

Disney Channel’s live-action Kim Possible movie is bringing back two familiar voices. 

Christy Carlson Romano and Patton Oswalt voice starred in the original animated series, which debuted in 2002 and ran for 87 episodes. Variety now confirms that the duo has been tapped to star in the upcoming film. Oswalt will reprise the role of super villain Professor Dementor, while Romano who voiced the titular teen super-spy in the original while will appear in a cameo role.

The 34-year-old actress confirmed the news during D23’s Saturday Morning on the Lot event on Saturday and said “I can’t say too much about my involvement yet, but I’m very excited to help usher in the strong, empowered female character I helped bring to life, to a new generation,” she told ET. “And I’m equally thrilled to see what the original fans think!”

Both Oswalt and Romano took to social media to share their excitement, with Oswalt writing on Twitter “Yep! Can’t wait for you guys to see this!” and Romano retweeting him and adding, “Yay! Can’t wait!”

Oswalt and Romano are joining previously announced cast including Sadie Stanley as Kim Possible, Alyson Hannigan as Dr. Ann (Mom) Possible, and Connie Ray as Kim’s grandmother, Nana Possible. Rounding up the cast are Todd Stashwick and Taylor Ortega who will portray villains Drakken and Shego respectively.

Penning the script are series’ creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley along with Josh Cagan. McCorkle and Schooley will also executive produce with Zanne Devine.
