16 years since the last The Powerpuff Girls episode aired, a reboot was announced late last year and ever since there was all kinds of hype! And of course there was, The Powerpuff Girls are a worldwide icon, with fashion lines, merch and a whole lot of girl power attitude!
Not much has changed in these 16 years. Besides the fact that their fanbase as only grown, mostly due to re-runs of classic episodes, this reboot does indeed feel like a fresh approach to a classic formula.
The episode showed during this press event was Power Up Puff, where the girls level-up and gain a new power: using their imagination, they can transform themselves into pretty much anything, well, imaginable. While I'm not sure if hardcore fans will react positively to this "upgrade", personally, I enjoyed it, specially since everything I love about The Powerpuff Girls is still pretty much intact.

I'll be tuning in to see more episodes of the reboot to see how good this gets, but it certainly is off to a good start!
Now all I'm missing is Samurai Jack and classic TV nostalgia is almost complete!
