Christy Carlson Romano is thrilled that the Kim Possible is back in live-action movie form -- and she has an adorable suggestion for the lead role.

The 33-year-old actress told ET on Wednesday that it was an honor to voice the titular crime-fighting high school student whose adventures spanned four seasons on the Disney Channel.

“I was so honored to be able to bring this strong, positive character to life and am excited to see her empowering message influence a new generation," she explained. "That said, as an artist, there’s always a part of you that wants to stay connected to the character you helped originate. I’m hopeful they’ll do right by Kim and my legacy.”

So, would she consider being in the live-action reboot? “I’d, of course, consider being involved if the circumstances were right," she told ET.

On Wednesday, the Disney Channel announced that they had begun casting for the movie, which is being penned in part by Kim Possible creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley.

"Mark and Bob created an enduring character and kids all over the world found a friend in her, an average girl who just happens to spend her off-school hours thwarting evil villains," said Adam Bonnett, executive vice president of original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide.  "Although Kim Possible 'can do anything,' kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them."

Romano joked on Instagram that she already has a potential lead actress in mind.

"Obviously the next Kim Possible! 😉," she captioned a photo of both herself and her 1-year-old daughter, Isabella -- who was adorably rocking a Kim Possible tee -- on Wednesday.

Obviously the next Kim Possible! 😉 #kimpossible #girlpower #ccr
