Disney never ceases to amaze me. I’ve got another exciting and exclusive announcement for you! Thanks to Disney I attended the #CaptainAmericaEvent, however all opinions stated are my very own. You remember the original Adventures in Babysitting? Yes, no maybe? Well I do! The first film I saw Elizabeth Shue in! But enough about the past!! Yes.. Adventures in Babysitting is coming to Disney Channel this Summer!
Your favorite Disney stars, Sofia Carson (The Descendants) and Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World) bring the 100th Disney original movie, Disney Adventures in Babysitting to a whole new level. I can’t share a review with you just yet, but I’m telling you right now it’s going to be your favorite version to watch with your kids! Set to premiere this summer, this live-action adventure comedy pays homage to the 1980s classic with familiar references and nostalgic scenes in a comedic, heartfelt story that celebrates individuality, friendship and self-empowerment.
Here’s the info from Disney: (so I don’t spoil it!! LOL)
“Adventures in Babysitting” brings together two unlikely friends when a tedious evening for contentious babysitters, Jenny Parker (Sabrina Carpenter) and Lola Perez (Sofia Carson), turns into an exciting journey in the big city as they hunt for one of the kids who somehow snuck away. The story unfolds when Jenny and Lola, two girls with distinctly different personalities, both interview for a coveted internship opportunity and accidently swap phones. In need of extra cash, audacious Lola nominates herself when the Andersons call Jenny looking for a last-minute babysitter. Meanwhile, dependable Jenny is already set to babysit the Cooper family for the evening. Lola’s first attempt at babysitting takes an unforeseen turn after Jenny discovers what Lola has done, and Jenny takes the kids to the Andersons to help rectify the situation. However, this leads all of them on an unexpected and exciting adventure of a lifetime.
The Disney Channel Original Movie also stars Nikki Hahn as Emily Cooper, Mallory James Mahoney as Katy Cooper, Max Gecowets as Trey Anderson, Jet Jurgensmeyer as Bobby Anderson, Madison Horcher as AJ Anderson, “BUNK’Ds” Kevin Quinn as Jenny’s crush Zac Chase, Gillian Vigman as Helen Anderson, Gabrielle Miller as Donna Cooper, Michael Northey as Tiny and Ken Lawson as Scalper, the two outlaws, Max Lloyd-Jones as Officer James, Kevin O’Grady as Barry Cooper and Hugo Ateo as Hal Anderson.
“Adventures in Babysitting” is directed by John Schultz (“Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer,” “Like Mike”) and written by Tiffany Paulsen (“Nancy Drew”). The movie is executive-produced by Michelle Manning (“Teen Beach 2,” “The Breakfast Club”) and Chuck Minsky serves as director of photography (“The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement,” “Mother’s Day,” “Valentine’s Day,” “New Year’s Eve”).
