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.
It was obvious that with the success of the TV show of Kim Possible, that there was bound to be a TV movie to come. Kim Possible, her batch of friends, family and even villains are all pieces of what makes this cartoon so successful. And the best thing is, this hour long TV movie keeps everything the same, which is what should be done for any lovable franchise. But, making things even better is how the writers were able to twist the story to be even cleverer than one would think.
The story is as many would guess without reading the plot is about time travel. Dr. Drakken, Shego, Duff Killagan & Monkey Fist team up to travel back to Kim's early years to keep her from being the crime- fighting good girl that she currently is. Unfortunately along with this news comes word that Ron Stoppable will be moving to Scandinavia with his family. Because of this, the duo tries to keep ties strong but it ends up getting too inconvenient for both to travel to the same location from different parts of the world. Soon, these events will lead to the intervention of individuals from the future to inform Kim Possible about the impending danger.
This is where things get funny and interesting because by the finale, the third act will take place in the future. What's funny is to see the current cast in the future and it's hilariously clever. One of the ongoing jokes is that everyone is ripped and muscular. Funny. Also, the voice actors chosen for the future character roles are a load of laughs too. It is just so oddly placed but funny all the same. As for the rest of the characters, their respective voice actor is with them which is great because no one can do it better than like the originals.
Now it's a little hard to say whether this movie had a budget bigger than its series but the backgrounds are good looking and the animation is well done. The action scenes were sequenced great and the music by TV composer Adam Berry made an energetic score as well. But like most TV movies, the score is never released which is rather disappointing. The only quarrel people might have with this movie is again that it deals with time travel and how messing with the past can alter the future. But all around it's still a lot of fun.
Although it wasn't made for the theater, this TV movie of Kim Possible is still one to enjoy. The action is great, the music is energetic and comedy is always abundant.
