Kristen Li Brings Bubbles Back to Life with “Powerpuff Girls” Reboot

On June 16, 2014, Cartoon Network announced that the beloved series The Powerpuff Girls was coming back to television. This April, girls of all ages were able to get a peek into our childhood, however, Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup are voiced by new actresses and save the world in new ways.

The Powerpuff Girls — Blossom (Amanda Leighton), Bubbles (Kristen Li), and Buttercup (Natalie Palamides) — protect their beautiful, bustling metropolis from sinister evildoers, intent on taking over. Juggling school, homework and a regular parade of villains is no easy task, but The Powerpuff Girls are more than up to the challenge. Armed with supercool superpowers and some topnotch teamwork, The Powerpuff Girls, with occasional assistance from Professor Utonium and the Mayor of Townsville, show their hometown and the world that it is possible to save the world before bedtime.

Kristen Li, who plays Bubbles, stopped by the Celeb Secrets studio recently to talk about her experience on the show and how important the show is for young girls.

“Being on The Powerpuff Girls is amazing,” Li told us. “I always watched the show when I was younger and Bubbles was my favorite character.” She continued with saying that “the show is really important because it gives young girls confidence to do anything. It also helps them when they are older, showing them that girls are just as equal to boys.”

Check out the video below. The Powerpuff Girls airs on Thursdays @ 6PM on Cartoon Network.
