Andi Mack series on DisneyDisney

Creator of Lizzie McGuire Returns With Disney Channel’s New Show Andi Mack

Terri Minsky, the creator of Disney Channel’s hit show Lizzie McGuire, returns to the tween and family friendly network with her new show Andi Mack. Growing up watching Lizzie McGuire, I couldn’t help suppress my inner 12-year-old-self excitement about this announcement. The series begins production in the fall and is scheduled for a 2017 premiere on Disney Channel. Twelve-year-old newcomer Peyton Elizabeth Lee stars in the leading role, as Andi Mack. It’s a single-camera family series that focuses on Andi as she is about to celebrate her 13th birthday. Her life becomes more complicated, however, when her older sister Bex (Lilian […]

Sneak Peek: First 10 Minutes of Disney’s Adventures in Babysitting Remake

For the 100th Disney Channel original movie, the kid-centric network is re-envisioning a family favorite. Adventures in Babysitting is the story of a night of childcare gone horribly — and hilariously — wrong. Disney stars Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World) and Sofia Carson (Descendants) team up in this new family comedy that will feature several scenes reminiscent of the original 1987 movie, which starred Elisabeth Shue. One touch that the filmmakers wisely made is to have Carpenter don a camel-colored trench coat  — one of the original film’s iconic looks. I 💖 it! The action unfolds when Jenny Parker (Carpenter) and […]

In the inspiring featurette, Disney’s “Be Inspired” cameras follow as Cameron, his sister, parents and grandmother make their first visit together to the monument, its 12 life-size sculptures […]

Blasts From The Past: 10 TV Series From 1990 to Binge-Watch Now

Some years are certainly more interesting than others when in comes to TV fare. And 1990 certainly had a number of memorable TV escapades, for better or worse. It didn’t seem right to shine a spotlight on a young Sandra Bullock’s ill-fated starring stint in a TV adaptation of Working Girl. Then again, that wasn’t as big a bomb as the one that executive producer Steven Bochco dropped when he combined a gritty police-procedural drama with almost-laughable musical numbers in a show called Cop Rock. While those may be amusing binge-watch exercises, there are plenty of others that are also […]

Summer’s successful Disney Channel Original Movie, Descendants, is getting a sequel.

The film starred Dove Cameron as Mal, Cameron Boyce as Carlos, Booboo Stewart as Jay, Sofia Carson […]
