Rowan Blanchard & Sabrina Carpenter Land New Disney Channel Original Movies
If you’re a big fan of “Girl Meets World” like we are, then you’ll love this new news!
It was announced this morning that Rowan Blanchard & Sabrina Carpenter will be starring in new Disney Channel Original Movies. While they won’t be starring together, they will be starring alongside some very familiar Disney Channel & Disney XD faces.
Rowan Blanchard and Paris Berelc (“Mighty Med” will star in the live-action adventure/comedy “Invisible Sister.” “Invisible Sister” is the comedy adventure story of Cleo (Rowan Blanchard), a girl whose science project goes terribly wrong, making her popular older sister, Molly (Paris Berelc), suddenly invisible. It will be directed by DGA Award-winner Paul Hoen (“Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam,” “How to Build a Better Boy”) and executive-produced by Sheri Singer (“Halloweentown,” “Girl Vs. Monster”). “Invisible Sister” is based on the book My Invisible Sister by Beatrice Colin and Sara Pinto.
Sabrina Carpenter and Sofia Carson (“Descendants”) will star in “Further Adventures in Babysitting,” inspired by the hugely popular 1980s film “Adventures in Babysitting.”
In “Further Adventures in Babysitting,” a reimagined tale of the popular teen film, a dull evening for two competing babysitters, Jenny (Sabrina Carpenter) and Luci (Sofia Carson), turns into an adventure in the big city as they hunt for one of the kids who somehow snuck away.
The movies are set to begin production this spring during a production hiatus for “Girl Meets World” and “Mighty Med.” They are scheduled to premiere beginning in Fall 2015 and early 2016 on Disney Channels around the world.
Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “We know these four young actresses all have the potential for extraordinary careers, and we’re excited to give them new opportunities to showcase their talents. We’re especially proud of Rowan and Sabrina, as they have helped drive the success of our hit series ‘Girl Meets World.'” He continued, “These new movies bring our viewers comedic and heartfelt stories that the entire family can enjoy together, and I’m particularly thrilled to introduce a new take on a personal favorite ‘Adventures in Babysitting’ to a whole new generation.”
