Lebanese pop star to voice fourth Powerpuff Girl in new five-part special
Nancy Ajram joins forces with the Powerpuff Girls
Nancy Ajram is already one of the most powerful figures in regional pop, with over 30 million album sales to her name.
She’s become a regular in Arabian Business magazine’s annual Power 100 thanks to her wealth and influence in the region.
She’s not averse to belting out the odd power balled when the mood takes her either. Now she’s going a step further, teaming up with Cartoon Network to voice the fourth Powerpuff Girl, Bliss, in the regional version of the five-part special, The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four.
Bliss is the long-lost teenage sister to regulars Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, who has returned to Townsville to learn the true strength of her incredible powers , with all five episodes airing consecutively.
“It was a great experience for me to participate in the dubbing of The Powerpuff Girls, particularly as it marks the first time that a celebrity has voiced a Cartoon Network character in the Middle East region,” Ajram said.
“I enjoyed the experience a lot. It also enabled me to re-live some of my happy childhood memories in the process. I felt that I was very much in the heart of the action, helping The Powerpuff Girls save the world!”
In the new story, we learn that Powerpuff Girls creator Professor Utonium created a little girl named Bliss long before the Powerpuff trio fans know and love. She was smart, sweet and incredibly powerful, but mysteriously disappeared and hasn’t been seen for years.
Now, as a teenager, Bliss has returned to discover she has three incredible superhero sisters. Reunited as a family at last, the four Powerpuff Girls work together and use their powers to save the day, and all before bedtime too.
The Powerpuff Girls has been one of the most popular programmes on Cartoon Network since it rebooted on the channel last year. The show also boasts its own dedicated YouTube channel in Arabic to cater specifically to its fans in the region.
The Powerpuff Girls premières on Cartoon Network HD at 5.30pm on November 9
