Call her beep her... She was the one of the original cartoon spy kids and she's coming back to screens.

Disney Channel mainstay Kim Possible is coming back to television, only now in human form.

Variety reports casting has begun on the project, which follows the titular hero, a typical high school girl who saves the world from evil villains with the help of her sidekick Ron Stoppable, his naked mole-rat Rufus, and computer genius Wade.

The original cartoon series launched in 2002 and ran for 87 episodes and was nominated for an Emmy in 2003 for outstanding animated program.

While there have already been two animated Disney Channel movies from the series, this will be the first venture into live-action for the series' creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley, who will also executive produce.

"Mark and Bob created an enduring character and kids all over the world found a friend in her, an average girl who just happens to spend her off-school hours thwarting evil villains," Disney Channel spokesman Adam Bonnett said in a statement.

"Although Kim Possible 'can do anything,' kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them."

As of yet there has been no scheduled release for the Kim Possible live action movie.
