Following the introduction of the all-new fourth Powerpuff Girl named Bliss last month, Cartoon Network has announced the introduction of two new celebrities who join the all-star line-up of local talent revoicing the role. Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram and Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon will star as the voice of Bliss for the Middle East and the UK respectively.
Nancy and Alesha complete the line-up of 15 super-powered celebrities across international markets to lend their voices to the fourth Powerpuff Girl, who appears in a 5-episode special entitled The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four. This initiative builds on Cartoon Network’s commitment to putting fans at the centre and delivering local relevance for kids across the globe.
Other local celebrities recently named as the voice of Bliss include: French comedian, actress and TV personality Claudia Tagbo; Polish actress, singer and TV personality, Patricia Kazadi; Swedish singer, dancer and actress Nova Miller; Danish YouTuber, Julia Sofie Aastrup; South Africa’s hip pop sensation Toya Delazy, who stars as the character across Africa; and Australian YouTuber Wengie, who has voiced the character for Australia and New Zealand.
Lesley Bailey, VP, Channel Marketing & Brand Management, Turner EMEA Kids said, “As the original ambassadors of girl power, The Powerpuff Girls are already steeped in pop-culture. Localising this fabulous new character with celebrity artists connects us to our fans all over the world on a local level – not only girls and kids, but millennial women and mums too. These are amazingly talented and creative women and we’re excited to be partnering with them on this new role.”
The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four is five-part special in which the Powerpuff Girls’ life as superheroes is turned upside down and all four Powerpuff Girls must band together and use their strengths and smarts to save their beloved city of Townsville from forces of evil that are bigger than ever.
