Synopsis

Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup have been saving Townsville for many years. But when a portal that the Professor recently invented starts malfunctioning, the Girls discover their past selves: the 1998-2005 Powerpuff Girls! To save their dimensions from being destroyed, they must team up with the 1998-2005 Girls to go through other dimensions, while also meeting their other past selves, such as the 2014 Girls, their 2006-2007 PPGZ's, and the 1992 Girls.

Plot

The film begins with a stage with the red curtains above. Bubbles thanks the audience for coming as she tells us that this is the story of how the Powerpuff Girls met their past selves and teamed up with them. She then starts reading the opening quotes (from the 1998-2005 series) on her paper. As she reads them, the curtains open to reveal a skyline of Townsville.

Powerpuff Girls 2016 Blossom, 2016 Bubbles, 2016 Buttercup, and Blisstina Utonium discover what it feels like to stick together, while also meeting up with Jared, Barry, the Derbytantes, and other classmates. The next day, 2016 Professor Utonium invents a time portal and the 2016 Girls are amused. Afterwards, the four get ready to board the school bus, and it leaves for Midway Elementary.

The bus stops at Midway Elementary, and as the four Girls enter the school, and 2016 Blossom sees Jared. Bliss asks 2016 Blossom if she's gonna talk to him, and 2016 Blossom tells her that she hasn't decided yet. Later, Ms. Keane, their teacher, teaches history to her class, while the Girls takes some notes from the lesson. Later at recess, 2016 Bubbles performs a musical number to her sisters. At lunchtime, Bliss talks to her sisters about a multiverse that contains all the main, parallel, and alternate worlds based on their world, to which Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup learn about.

Meanwhile, in a lair that sits in Townsville Volcano Mountain, in the center of Townsville Park, 2016 Mojo Jojo works on a new plan to destroy the Powerpuff Girls and Townsville too, when he discovers that the Professor has invented a time portal. 2016 Mojo Jojo realizes that the new plan is to also destroy the multiverse, so he hacks the newly-invented time portal, making it malfunction.

Later, when the Girls got back from school, they discover that the portal had been malfunctioning. After trying to fix it, the portal inadvertently brings in the 1998 Girls. They tell them that nothing is what is seems in all the dimensions, and that Mojo Jojo is planning to destroy the Townsville of the multiverse. The next day, the six girls fly over to their school, only for Miss Keane to realize that there were six Powerpuff Girls in the school, leaving her confused. They then fly over to the Mayor’s office, only for the Mayor to get confused about their differences and get his assistant Ms. Bellum to get them out. Back at home, the Professor is concerned about their differences and looks, as well as why the portal was malfunctioning, and tells the seven girls that their universes are getting destroyed. So he tasks the six girls to get more of their old selves to put together a team.

In their room, they think of a plan to stop Mojo Jojo by joining forces with each other. They later sneak into the Derbytantes' lair, thus sending the 1998 Girls to sneak up on Maylyn, who later discovers that there are two Buttercups, two Blossoms, and two Bubbleses. They later talk about why the portal had been malfunctioning. Bubbles tells the Derbytantes the truth about what happened. Once the seven Girls got home, the portal brings in the 2014 Girls who offer to help them with their mission.

In the lab, Bliss reveals to the Girls a Powerpuff Time Machine, and shows them the Orb of Main, Parallel, and Alternate Universes. The ten girls fly to different universes with a time machine: first the 1992 universe, then the 1998-2005 universe, the 2014 universe, the 1995 universe, the Powerpuff Girls Z universe, the Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi universe, and finally the live-action Powerpuff universe. On the way, they recruit the 1992 Girls, the 1995 Girls, the PPGZ Girls, the PPGD Girls, and the live-action Powerpuff Girls. Afterwards, they travel between other Powerpuff dimensions to get back to the 2016 universe.

Meanwhile, Mojo Jojo, assembles his team, which includes Fuzzy Lumpkins, Princess Morbucks, the Rowdyruff Boys, the Amoeba Boys, the Gangreen Gang, HIM, Duplikate, Bianca Bikini, Barbarus Bikini, the Sporde, Silico, Sedusa, Packrat, Manboy, and the other villains from other universes to form a team, so that they can defeat the Girls once they show up.

The Girls make it to the 2016 universe. They fly over to their house, and Professor Utonium agrees to have them stay with them for the training days. After a lot of days of training, the Girls fly off to Townsville. They face Mojo and his gang, and try to battle him, but they are all outnumbered. 2016 Blossom tries to unleash the other versions of the Powerpuff Girls using the Orb of Main, Parallel, and Alternate Universes, but when Bliss tries to stop her from doing so, 2016 Blossom pushes Bliss away. Bliss tries to use her telekinesis, but it doesn’t work. The villains easily defeat the Girls, and Mojo swats the Girls, and they land into the junkyard with a thud. After an argument between Bliss and 2016 Blossom, the Girls all split up.

2016 Bubbles gets heartbroken about what 2016 Blossom did to them and starts crying. After 1998 Bubbles, 1998 Buttercup, the 1992 Girls, the 1995 Girls, the PPGD Girls, the live-action Powerpuff Girls, the PPGZ Girls, and the 2014 Girls went home to their respective dimensions, 2016 Buttercup tells 2016 Bubbles that there's no end of friendship and 2016 Bubbles feels better and hugs 2016 Buttercup, and then they went home so 2016 Buttercup can watch a Space Tow Truck episode and 2016 Bubbles can go to sleep. She tells 2016 Buttercup good night and that she’ll see her tomorrow. Then, she hears crying in the other room. 2016 Bubbles walks through the doorway to Bliss’ room to see Bliss crying on her bed. She comforts Bliss and reminds her that she will always be a Powerpuff Girl and after having a good talk, the two hug. Afterwards, 2016 Bubbles tells Bliss good night, goes back to her room, and drifts to sleep.

Meanwhile that night, a sad 2016 Blossom is sitting alone in the middle of the junkyard. She starts crying because of the argument she and Bliss had earlier. 1998 Blossom comes to her and comforts her. 1998 Blossom talks with 2016 Blossom, and 1998 Blossom tells her that it is never too late to do the right thing. Unfortunately, 2016 Princess Morbucks and her 1998 counterpart kidnap the Blossoms and takes them back to the 1998-2005 universe, sending them to Mojo Jojo’s lair. The next day, 2016 Bubbles wakes up to a new day, and finds a letter on Octi’s head, so she reads it, and in shock, she discovers that the Blossoms have been kidnapped, so she tells 2016 Buttercup and Bliss about it, and then they tell 1998 Bubbles and 1998 Buttercup, who discovered that their Blossom has been kidnapped as well. The Bubbleses and Buttercups, as well as the other Powerpuff Girls arrive too. Bliss and the Girls fly to the 1998-2005 universe using the Powerpuff Time Machine.

Meanwhile, 2016 Mojo Jojo reveals to the Blossoms that he is now working for 1998 Mojo Jojo. The Mojo Jojos activate the killing machine to start erasing the Blossoms forever. The Girls arrive and were gonna rescue the two from the machine. However, they refused to rescue the two after 2016 Buttercup told them about how 2016 Blossom insulted Bliss yesterday. So they all left the two behind and went back to their respective dimensions

Later, they were all hanging out in Town Hall, but they were not happy. Bliss regrets denying the idea of unleashing Powerpuff Girls from other universes, and realizes that Blossom was right: the best way to defeat them is to unleash the Powerpuff Girls of Infinite Earths, and 2016 Buttercup realizes how much of a jerk she was about what she said. Bliss tells the Girls that she has to unleash the Powerpuff Girls of Infinite Earths because that’s what 2016 Blossom always wanted, and then tells 2016 Buttercup that they have to go back to the 1998-2005 universe to rescue the Blossoms, and 2016 Buttercup agrees. They gathered everyone from their universes again after they went home from refusing to rescue 1998 Blossom and 2016 Blossom, and using the Powerpuff Time Machine, they went back to the 1998-2005 universe, but this time, they actually rescue the two from the machine. The Buttercups unplug the machine. 2016 Blossom and Bliss reconcile, and the Girls promise to work together, this time as a team, and fly back to the 2016 universe.

2016 Blossom gives up her leadership to Bliss, who uses the Orb of Main, Parallel, and Alternate Universes to form the “Powerpuff Girls of Infinite Earths”: the Powerpunk Girls, the Powerpup Girls, the Powerpuff Animals, the 1920s Cartoon Girls, the dancing robotic Powerpuff Girls, Bunny, Bell, Bloom, Bullet, and many other versions of the Girls. They easily overpower the Villains, and then, Dynamo and Brambles take out the other bad guys. When Mojo Jojo and his crew have surrounded the Girls, Professor Utonium, the Derbytantes, and everybody else, come to their rescue, with the Derbytantes finally taking down the bad guys. Then, Mojo Jojo's evil primates arrive, but Bliss and 2016 Blossom work together to fight all the primates while singing Karmin’s “Brokenhearted”, joined by the 2016 Bubbles, 2016 Buttercup, the 1998 Girls, the 1995 Girls, the 1992 Girls, the 2014 Girls, the PPGZ girls, the PPGD Girls, the live-action Powerpuff Girls, Professor Utonium, The Mayor of Townsville, Ms. Bellum, Maylyn, and the Derbytantes. After the other villains are defeated, Mojo Jojo injects himself with Chemical X and grows into a giant monster, and starts destroying Townsville. The Professor reveals that he has brought an Antidote X with him, but 2016 Blossom sacrifices herself to defeat giant Mojo Jojo by plummeting him onto the ground, causing a huge explosion. The Antidote X shrinks Mojo down to his original size, battered and defeated.

All of the Girls, including Bliss, Professor Utonium, and Maylyn look for 2016 Blossom until Bliss finds 2016 Blossom’s unconscious body. Bliss tries to wake 2016 Blossom up, but it was no use. Devastated, Bliss hugs 2016 Blossom and starts crying as she mourns over her sister, who wakes up, and reveals to Bliss and the others that she has done what’s right. Bliss was happy that 2016 Blossom did the right thing, and 1998 Blossom says that she was proud of what 2016 Blossom has done. The police arrests all of the 2016 villains for all their crimes, while the other 1992, 1995, 1998, 2014, and PPGZ villains are returned back into their respective universes.

With the Townsvilles finally at peace, all of the Girls are sent home to their respective dimensions. One week later, Townsville has now become more peaceful than before. The portal is fixed, and the bad guys are taken to jail. The 2016 Powerpuff Girls are glad that they don’t have to endure another multiverse-threatening crossover for at least another year, and they make a promise to keep saving Townsville no matter what happens. The narrator says “And so once again, with the help of all of their past selves and main, parallel, and alternate versions, the day is saved, thanks to: The Powerpuff Girls! You know, it’s not hard to know this is the end of the series. I guess I’ll cut it off here. Good night everyone!” And then the song ends and the curtains close, ending the film and the series.

Production

Development

After Warner Animation Group and Cartoon Network started development on films for a shared Cartoon Network universe, developers Nick Jennings and Bob Boyle announced a sequel to The Powerpuff Girls Movie for November 2024. This resulted in the 2016 reboot of The Powerpuff Girls being brought back by Cartoon Network Studios on May 20, 2022 and renewing it for three more seasons (Seasons 4, 5, and 6), making this reboot conclude after six seasons (as well as the musical movie), the same amount as the 1998 series. All cringe and toilet humor in this reboot were permanently removed from the series (meaning no more twerking or outdated memes from Season 4 onward), as musical numbers, a lot of heart, and heartwarming messages were put in to replace the cringe and toilet humor previously used in Seasons 1-3.

In response to The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations, as well as Warner Animation Group collaborating with Cartoon Network Studios, Cartoon Network Studios Europe, Warner Bros. Animation, Williams Street, and Cartoon Network Latin America Original Productions to kickstart the Cartoon Network Cinematic Universe, the 2016 reboot of The Powerpuff Girls will be brought back by Cartoon Network Studios on August 14, 2022 and renew it for three more seasons (Seasons 4, 5, and 6), making this reboot conclude after six seasons (as well as the musical movie), the same amount as the 1998 series. All cringe and toilet humor previously used in Seasons 1-3 of this reboot will be permanently removed from the series (meaning no more twerking or outdated memes from Season 4 onward), and just like Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the 2017 reboot of DuckTales, and Season 5 of the 2016 Ben 10 reboot, it will have an action-packed tone, dark elements, clever writing, and creativity of the original, four things that the first three seasons lacked. It will also have the charm of the original, as it will have more crime-fighting and less slice-of-life scenes. It will no longer try to be hip; instead it will be more serious, and Seasons 4, 5, and 6 will feel like an actual reboot that’s done right.

Starting with Season 4, animation services for the series will be brought in by Bardel Entertainment, located in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The animation of the series will be similar to how Sunmin Image Pictures animated the first 3 seasons, but only instead of using paper and pencil to draw the frames, which are later scanned to the computer where they are colored in, the crew at Bardel Entertainment will use Wacom Cintiqs to draw the frames, which allows them to undo and fix any mistakes if there are any mistakes done in drawing the frames. The frames are done directly on screen to facilitate production using Toon Boom Harmony. Eventually, the frames then get colored in using Toom Boom Harmony.

The backgrounds are painted digitally using Adobe Photoshop, and post production is done with Adobe After Effects. Animation and clean-up work will be done at Bardel's facilities in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The animation style will be made to be similar as with the first 3 seasons, but slightly improved. Unlike Sunmin Image Pictures, Bardel Entertainment makes no animation errors when animating the series. Additionally, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup will also have their color palettes changed to something that has their 1998 and 2016 colors mixed. However, Blisstina will keep the same color palette she had in Seasons 2-3.

Amanda Leighton, Kristen Li, and Natalie Palamides will improve on their voice acting on Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The trio in Seasons 4-6 the reboot will be added up to four, with Blisstina being the newest member of the group.

Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup will also improve on their singing during these seasons. The fourth season will be in 2022, the fifth season will be from 2023-2024, and the sixth and final season will be in 2024.

Starting with Season 4, the series will have a new theme song which was sung by Blossom (Amanda Leighton), Bubbles (Kristen Li), Buttercup (Natalie Palamides), and Bliss (Olivia Olson).

Starting with these seasons, the characters from the original series will redeem themselves and revert to their original selves, with Bliss’ personality becoming better:

  • Blossom’s 2016 counterpart will revert from an over-reactive, nagging, and exaggerating OCD neurotic perfectionist into a leader and the smart girl of the group, and also the most rational, meaning it's her plans that contribute to victory, much like her 1998 counterpart.
  • Bubbles’s 2016 counterpart will revert from a childish, crybaby, whiny, and stereotypically girly "girl" into a cute girly girl of the group who is the most optimistic and shy, meaning it's her openness to friendship that sometimes allows the girls to gain an upper hand by not fighting without a reason, much like her 1998 counterpart. In addition, she will also have an amazing singing voice, her own Ice Form (based on the Ice Form/Suit Power-up from the Super Mario franchise), and a kind heart. In the musical numbers, she is also shown to be able to sing from her heart.
  • Buttercup’s 2016 counterpart will revert from a tomboyish clichéd bully into a sporty, no-nonsense tomboy who is always eager for a good fight, making her the key for overpowering enemies that can only be taken head on, much like her 1998 counterpart.
  • Blisstina Utonium’s characterization will be heavily improved, going from a teenage girl stereotype into a kind and supportive teenage sister to the group who always participates in fighting crime with her sisters. Additionally, she will have an amazing singing voice (provided by Olivia Olson/Alesha Dixon in the UK, African, and Australian versions) for the musical numbers.
  • The Professor's 2016 counterpart will revert back to his characterization that he had in the classic 1998 series after he was flanderized into an unfunny idiotic dad trope in the first three seasons of the 2016 reboot.
  • Mojo Jojo’s 2016 counterpart will revert back to his characterization that he had in the classic 1998 series and utilizes his famous language and speech patterns again, after he was flanderized into a stereotypical villainous elitist who used to speak in the third person in the first three seasons of the 2016 reboot.
  • The Mayor of Townsville's 2016 counterpart will revert back to his characterization that he had in the classic 1998 series after he was flanderized into an unfunny comic relief in the first three seasons of the 2016 reboot.
  • Princess Morbucks’ 2016 counterpart will revert back to her characterization that she had in the classic 1998 series, after she was flanderized into a stereotypical famous girl in the first three seasons of the 2016 reboot.

Various characters from the 2016 reboot, such as Jared Shapiro, Manboy, Bianca Bikini, Packrat, Gnat, Silico, Donny, Pug-Faced Paulie, Duplikate, Erika the Red, and Supna Nehru, will also have their characterizations heavily improved. Seasons 4, 5, and 6 will be much darker than the original series, but not too dark to the point where it’s super edgy. As they say, the tone knows when to have its darker moments and when to have its lighter moments. Nothing here is too inconsistent tone-wise.

While the 2016 reboot will be more serious in Seasons 4, 5, and 6, it will also have a few funny moments here and there within them to not make these seasons too serious, and these jokes will be done better than the previous three seasons.

One of the other additions to this reboot is that Blisstina will have her own bedroom, with a front doorway that leads straight to the Girls’ bedroom. The soundtrack album for the entire reboot will be available on WaterTower Music. Seasons 4-6 will also mark the return of Sedusa and Ms. Bellum, with Jennifer Hale and Jennifer Martin reprising their roles respectively. The Powerpuff Hotline, first seen in the episode “Puffdora’s Box”, will also return in Seasons 4, 5, and 6, and will be in tandem with its smartphone counterpart. The narrator and the iconic ending hearts will also be used in every episode of Seasons 4, 5, and 6. The narrator also will open every episode of Seasons 4, 5, and 6 with the phrase: “The City of Townsville…” As a result of being renewed for three more seasons, the 2016 reboot of The Powerpuff Girls will be airing on the Cartoon Network channel again.

The first episode of Season 4 will focus on Blossom, Bubbles, Buttercup, and Professor Utonium giving Bliss a new room, after she quit the UPB to spend time with her family, while the second episode will focus on Blossom, Bubbles, Buttercup, and Bliss attending space camp for two weeks, and Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup explain to Bliss the events of Home, Sweet Homesick, while the four try the park attractions and carnival rides, and the third episode features Ms. Bellum returning to Townsville after she cut her vacation days short due to missing him.

Danny Cooksey, Greg Cipes, and James Arnold Taylor will voice Brick, Boomer, and Butch respectively in Seasons 4-6 and The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations. Adam McArthur, who is known for voicing Marco Diaz from Star vs. the Forces of Evil, will voice Blake, the fourth Rowdyruff Boy. These seasons were in tandem with the controversial live-action reboot of The Powerpuff Girls on The CW.

Seasons 4-6 will have 1 or 2 songs for every episodes. If it’s a double length episode, then it will have 3 songs. Each song is to last 1 minute and 45 seconds. The narrator will also come back in Seasons 4, 5, and 6.

Starting with Season 4, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup will go back to wearing their nightgowns for sleepwear. In addition, Bliss also will also have her own nightgown for sleepwear in light purple. She will also have her own swimsuit.

Starting with Season 4, the intro and end credits will be updated to include Blisstina Utonium (with Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup still intact), with Craig McCracken coming back to Cartoon Network to join the 2016 collaborators.

As a result of Seasons 4, 5, and 6, much like Season 5 of the 2016 reboot of Ben 10, the animation will be brilliant and a step-up from the previous three seasons, with no more animation errors or goofs. Seasons 4, 5, and 6 will be much more faithful to the original source material than the last three seasons. Blossom will still have a crush on Jared, Bubbles will still be a computer geek, and Buttercup will still be good at math. Pokey Oaks Kindergarten will be fixed and reopen from Season 4 onward. Mitch Mitchelson will also return in the 2016 reboot, with Tom Kenny reprising his role.

Despite the character designs being the same, only with Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup having their color palette changed to something which has their 1998 and 2016 colors mixed (while Bliss keeps the same color palette she had in Seasons 2-3), the themes of Seasons 4, 5, and 6 will be taken much more seriously thanks to better storytelling and more time to flesh them out properly.

Craig McCracken will also come back to Cartoon Network to join the 2016 collaborators (while also working on the 1998 Powerpuff Girls revival and the Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends reboot), and will have more involvement in the series.

Reception

Box Office

The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations grossed $858.3 million in the United States and Canada, and $1.939 billion in other territories, for a worldwide total of $2.798 billion, becoming the highest-grossing film of all time in the United States and Canada. It is the fifth-highest-grossing film of all time worldwide.

The film had a worldwide opening of $1.2 billion. It was also the fastest film ever to eclipse the $1 billion and $1.5 billion mark, doing so in just five days and eight days, respectively. Deadline Hollywood estimated the film would break even just five days after its release, which is "unheard of for a major studio tentpole during its opening weekend". The website eventually calculated the final net profit of the film to be $890 million, accounting for production budgets, marketing, talent participations, and other costs, with box office grosses, and ancillary revenues from home media, placing it first on their list of 2024's "Most Valuable Blockbusters".

On December 7, the film's earnings at the global box office became the fastest film ever to gross $2 billion worldwide, amassing the amount in only 11 days. It also became the fifth film to surpass this threshold, and the second film to surpass the threshold of $2.5 billion, doing so in just 20 days.

United States and Canada

The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations set the records on Fandango for most tickets sold by an animated film in that frame. The film was projected to gross $200–250 million domestically during its opening weekend, although some insiders saw those figures as conservative and expected a $260–300 million debut. By the week of its release, domestic estimates had risen to $260–270 million, with some insiders still suggesting a $300 million debut was possible. The film played in 4,662 theaters, 410 of which were in IMAX. The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations earned $357.1 million in its opening weekend. It also set records for Friday ($157.5 million, including $60 million from Thursday night previews), Saturday ($109.3 million), and Sunday ($90.4 million) totals, as well as was more of a total gross alone than the previous box office high of all films combined ($314 million). The film then made $36.9 million on Monday and $33.1 million on Tuesday, both the third-highest of all time. In its second weekend the film made $147.4 million (the second-best sophomore frame ever) for a 10-day total of $621.3 million. It was the fastest film to ever pass the $600 million milestone. The following week, the film grossed $64.8 million, the fourth-best third weekend ever. It also passed the $700 million mark.

Critical response

On review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 100% based on 421 reviews, with an average rating of 10/10. The website's critics consensus reads, "Heartwarming, funny, beautifully animated, and filled with returning voice actors, returning characters, and musical numbers, The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations really does have the power and brings the family together." Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the film a score of 84 out of 100 based on 57 critics, indicating "universal acclaim." Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A+" on an A+ to F scale, while those at PostTrak gave it an overall positive score of 100%, a 100% "definite recommend," and a 5 star rating.

The film received a four-star rating from Matt Zoller Seitz of RogerEbert.com, who wrote, "This film is a massive improvement over the 2016 reboot, as there is no cringe in this film." The Washington Post's Ann Hornaday also gave the film 5 out of 5 stars and praised its, "visually dazzling concoction of wily schemes and daring adventures", as well as achieving, "a continuation of Cartoon Network's theatrical reputation." Peter DeBruge of Variety wrote, "The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations ushered in the era of traditionally animated cartoon features, and this sequel wraps up the saga beautifully." The Daily Telegraph's Robbie Collin wrote, "The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations reaffirms that the Warner Animation Group, at their best, are like no other animation studio around." Writing for Variety, Peter Debruge wrote, "The 2016 Girls have been improving on their singing, and their 1998 counterparts gave them the power again. This film wins back what made the original series special."

The film also gained lots of positive feedbacks from many fans of the original series, with one saying "This film is a massive improvement over the 2016 reboot.

  • This film premiered the day exactly 5 years after Frozen II (2019) released theatrically.
  • This would have been the final time the Powerpuff Girls would be animated at Sunmin Image Pictures. The follow-up series and spin-offs are animated at Copernicus Studios and Bardel Entertainment. However, Sunmin Image Pictures would return to provide the 2D animated segments for the sequel, since it would be part of the Cartoon Network Cinematic Universe. It was to be produced in association with Universal Pictures and Illumination. Because of this, the sequel would be mainly produced in full CGI.

The same crew members of the 2016 reboot of The Powerpuff Girls as well as the ones from Illumination would be involved with the new Minions TV series. The series was to be based on the 2022 film Minions: The Rise of Gru and The Powerpuff Girls (2016).
      • Ultimately enough, it has been decided the series would be animated by Illumination Studios Paris in France. The series would have the same way as as Minions: The Rise of Gru (2022) (what the series is based on). However, the Minions TV series has some 2D animated shorts with 2D animation provided by Sunmin Image Pictures and additional animation provided by Illumination. The 2D animation for the shorts is in the same style as The Powerpuff Girls (2016), but for the characters, the animation style was the same as in Saturday Morning Minions. These 2D animated shorts can be seen at the end of every episode. Each episode of the series was to be 7 minutes and 59 seconds, with each short running 2 minutes.
  • Cartoon Network also reached a multi-year music partnership with Universal Music Group in 2023 to develop and produce The Powerpuff Girls (2016) soundtracks featuring songs sung by Blossom, Bubbles, Buttercup, and Bliss.
    • The soundtrack albums for The Powerpuff Girls (2016) were released by Universal Music Group, as The Powerpuff Girls now appear courtesy of Universal Music Group (only for the PPG 2016 soundtracks released by UMG).
      • The soundtracks featured songs that were sung by Blossom (Amanda Leighton), Bubbles (Kristen Li), Buttercup (Natalie Palamides), Bliss (Olivia Olson), Ringo Starr, Neil Morrissey, and Tacocat.
        • Cartoon Network and Universal Music Group also made music videos featuring characters from various Cartoon Network shows, such as Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, We Bare Bears,Craig of the Creek, Steven Universe, Apple & Onion, and Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart.
          • However, the soundtrack for The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations, as well as the soundtracks for the follow-up series and spin-offs, were released by WaterTower Music. Soundtracks from Cartoon Network shows, including The Powerpuff Girls (only for the 2016 reboot, follow-up series, and spin-offs), also continued to be available from WaterTower Music.
  • While The LEGO Movie 3: A Powerpuff Adventure took place between the fifth season and the sixth and final season of the 2016 reboot of The Powerpuff Girls, this film took place after the sixth and final season.
  • The Powerpuff Girls from Bleedman's PPGD webcomic also got transported to the 2016 universe.
  • Craig McCracken, the creator of the original Powerpuff Girls series, said that he approved this movie, along with Seasons 4, 5, and 6 of the 2016 reboot and The LEGO Movie 3: A Powerpuff Adventure.
  • Months before production on the film finished, Warner Animation Group confirmed that a third The Powerpuff Girls film was in the early stages of development, which would be produced in association with Universal Pictures and Illumination.
  • Due to the fact that Cartoon Network shut down in Russia because of the actions of Russia towards Ukraine in 2022, this movie never got dubbed into Russian.
  • The scene from the SpongeBob SquarePants episode ‘Friend or Foe’ when the scene zoomed into 2016 Buttercup’s head is seen and used during Warner Bros., Cartoon Network, Paramount Global, and Nickelodeon’s partnership.
  • Alongside the 2016 Powerpuff Girls series collaborators, as well as Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Daron Nefcy, Chris DeFaria, Pernelle Hayes, Eyal Podell, Jonathon E.

Follow-up television series

The Powerpuff Girls: Tales from the City of Townsville is an HBO Max original animated musical television series co-produced with Cartoon Network Studios. It is the sequel to the 2016 iteration of The Powerpuff Girls. Many of the same collaborators of the 2016 reboot of The Powerpuff Girls will be involved with this new series, and the spin-offs. The series takes place after the events of the 2016 iteration of The Powerpuff Girls and the 2024 film The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations. The series was animated at Bardel Entertainment (replacing Sunmin Image Pictures), which also provided the animation for the four spin-offs. Like Seasons 4, 5, and 6 of the 2016 series, every 2 episodes had 1 or 2 songs (3 songs for double length episodes; no songs for every other 2 episodes; for example, the first 2 episodes have songs, episodes 3 and 4 have no songs, episodes 5 and 6 have songs, episodes 7 and 8 have no songs, etc.) which last 1 minute and 45 seconds.

Set after the events of The Powerpuff Girls: The Movie: Generations, Blossom, Bubbles, Buttercup, and Blisstina: four girl superheroes have recently reduced crime and now live a normal life, although they still have their powers.
