The Powerpuff Girls are all grown up.
The CW released the first official photo of the new trio of crimefighters on Monday, featuring Chloe Bennet as Blossom, Dove Cameron as Bubbles and Yana Perrault as Buttercup.

The PowerpuffGirls live-action series was first announced last August. Bennet, Cameron and Perrault confirmed their roles on social media in March, expressing their excitement for the new project.
