CN Casts New ‘Powerpuff Girls’ Voice for Middle East, U.K.

Popular Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram, ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge Alesha Dixon will voice Bliss, the action series’ new star character. 

Fifteen celebrity voices have been cast around the world to voice localized versions of Bliss, the newest member of the ‘Powerpuff Girls.’

LONDON -- Following the introduction last month of the all-new fourth Powerpuff Girl, Bliss, Cartoon Network has announced two new celebrities to join the all-star line-up of local talent revoicing the role: Platinum-selling Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram and Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon will voice Bliss for the Middle East and the U.K. respectively.

Arjam and Dixon 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 five-episode special titled The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four. This initiative builds on Cartoon Network’s commitment to putting fans at the center 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 voices the character for Australia and New Zealand.

Lesley Bailey, VP, Channel Marketing & Brand Management, Turner EMEA Kids commented: “As the original ambassadors of girl power, The Powerpuff Girls are already steeped in pop-culture. Localizing 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 strength and smarts to save their beloved city of Townsville from forces of evil that are bigger than ever.
