The Powerpuff Girls Set for Reboot at Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe


Reboots of The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends are in development at Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe (HBSE), with Craig McCracken returning to work on both projects.

“The Hanna-Barbera homecoming of Craig was an opportunity we could not pass up,” said Sam Register, president of Cartoon Network Studios, Warner Bros. Animation and HBSE, on the new alliance with McCracken, who started his animation career at Hanna-Barbera in the 1990s. “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.”

In the new take on The Powerpuff Girls, Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup will face off against a gallery of villains comprised of familiar foes and new threats. Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends will return as an original preschool animated series. Sarah Fell, VP of original kids and family animation at HBSE, will oversee the development of both projects at the studio.
