Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe is developing a reboot of The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. Creator, producer, and director Craig McCracken is attached to develop both projects. He first started his career at Hanna-Barbera Cartoons 30 years ago in 1992. The Powerpuff Girls reboot will revisit and expand upon the world of the original series. Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup will face off against a gallery of villains comprised of familiar foes and new threats. The original series debuted on Cartoon Network in 1998. Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends will return as an original preschool animated series. It will welcome a new cast of preschool-aged imaginary friends. This new lot is just as silly and playful as the original bunch.
“The Hanna-Barbera homecoming of Craig was an opportunity we could not pass up. Along with his unparalleled sense of fun and imagination, he’s bringing two of his greatest works in The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, and we are so excited for these characters to be a part of the new legacy taking shape at the studio.”Sam Register, President of Cartoon Network Studios, Warner Bros. Animation, and Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe
