Charlie Bean

Disney aren't showing any signs of slowing down when it comes to putting together some original content for their upcoming streaming service. Previous reports claimed that the company would be putting together new live-action versions of both 'Sword and the Stone' and 'Lady and the Tramp' for the platform have proven to be correct, and the latter looks to be storming ahead.

Whilst we'll see live-action versions of 'The Lion King', 'Aladdin', and other Disney classics hit the big screen in cinemas across the globe, Disney are experimenting with their future in bringing some of their content straight to their forthcoming streaming platform.

The Motion Picture Association of America, in their policy to specify why a movie receives its rating, gave a PG to the animated feature The Powerpuff Girls Movie for this reason: "non-stop frenetic animated action." Boy, they got that right. Based on creator Craig McCracken's popular Cartoon Network series, this tale of America's cutest superheroes is chock-full of flashing, bullet-fast action sequences as three little girls cause trouble, wreak havoc, and, of course, save the day.
