The new school year starts off terrible for Kim. In her ordinary life her best friend is moving away, and in her heroic crime-fighting life, three of the most notorious villains in her world plan to use time travel as a weapon against her.
New circumstances forces Lilo and her alien friends to part ways while Gantu and Dr. Van Hamsterviel create the Stitch clone, Leroy, in order to capture all of the experiments and take over the galaxy.
David Ogden Stiers
Stitch, an alien living on Earth disguised as a dog with his human family, continues his adventures when he discovers that the alien family he never knew he had is now in Hawaii, being hunted down by galactic forces.
Kim and Ron start out a new school year, only to find out that Ron's family is moving to Norway. This puts a strain on their partnership, just as Dr. Drakken, Monkey Fist, and Duff Killigan team up to find and use an ancient time travel device to rule the world. Attacking Kim in the past, present, and future, can these villians succeed? Or will an unforeseen force be more destructive?Written by

Okay, type in "KimPossible.com."
Loading... Loading..."Kim Possible. She can do anything." Yeah, you know, it sounds a little braggy.
It's like a commercial, Ron. It's supposed to be braggy.

The DVD version is slightly different from the original TV version in the following ways.
It's letterboxed, thus allowing you to see each entire filmed frame.
The beginning credits for Nancy Cartwright and Tahj Mowry are at the top of the frame instead of at the bottom.
All of the fade in and fade out transitions for commercials breaks have been changed into regular cuts, thus presenting the movie without any spots for commercial breaks. By doing this, some additional changes were made: The music has been clipped by a few seconds at 21:21 (21 minutes 21 seconds into the film). The before and after "commercial break" audio has been mixed together at 38:00. At 42:36 the TV version zooms out from a close-up of Sheego to the group show with some music playing over it, on DVD the group show it shown without the close-up & zoom out and music. At 54:36 the loud music is missing after Ron says "See, everybopdy in the future is ripped" (a fade out follows this line in the TV version) and another one before Kim says "What happened to you?" (a fade in precedes this line in the TV version).
Instead of series background music playing over the last scene with Kim and Ron, "This Year" by the A*TEENS is played instead, leading into the end credits. The A*TEENS song starts at 62:59 right after Ron says "Brainfreeze" and Rufus groans.
The end credits are completely different. Instead of the traditional series end credits (still text over a picture of Kim, with the instrumental of "Call Me, Beep Me" playing over it), the credits scroll over a still shot of the sky from the end scene with the A*TEENS song playing over it.
Since the A*TEENS song is used during the end credits instead of "Call Me, Beep Me," the music credits lists the A*TEENS song where "Call Me, Beep Me" used to be.
As a parent, I love this show. It's hip (far as I can tell, anyway), funny, exciting, teaches gentle moral lessons without an unduly heavy hand, and manages to hint at being sexy without remotely getting close to any boundaries. At its best, KP is better than lots of "Buffy" was.
Alas, this film isn't up to KP's own standard. Like many feature-length excursions from a TV series, it goes off in directions that are not really part of the canon, including some time-travel into the near future that lets us see some things about the characters' destinies that are just not all that interesting.
Regardless, the devotion Kim and her sidekick Ron have for each other, which is--to my mind--the greatest strength of this show, comes through clearly, and that's a good enough reason for KP's fans to see this one. If, however, "Sitch" is your first meeting with the high-school superspy who "can do anything," give the series a try too; it's better than this not-bad film.
