"I can't say too much about my involvement yet, but I'm very excited to help usher in the strong, empowered female character I helped bring to life, to a new generation," Romano told People. "And I'm equally thrilled to see what the original fans think!"

Romano did not reveal what character she will play in the movie, which had earlier this year cast newcomer Sadie Stanley in the main role of Kim. Variety said Romano's part will be a cameo.

Romano, also known for past role on the Disney Channel series Even Stevens, made her comments at the D23's Saturday Morning on the Lot event at the Walt Disney Studios during a presentation celebrating the Kim Possible series, the cable network said in a statement to E! News.
