Disney Channel’s Adventures In Babysitting Premieres June 24th
Disney Channel has a lot to celebrate this year with the release of their 100th original movie. Adventures in Babysitting will premiere on June 24th, on Disney Channel. The movie is hugely inspired by the 1980s film of the same name, making this a film that the whole family can enjoy.
While in LA during the #CaptainAmericaEvent I had the opportunity to screen the new movie, and while I can’t share my review until premiere day, I can share some details about the film to get you excited about the upcoming release. Check out the trailer below.
Fan-favorites Sabrina Carpenter (“Girl Meets World”) and Sofia Carson (“Descendants 2”) join forces in the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie “Adventures in Babysitting,” a contemporary re-imagined tale of the hugely popular 1980s blockbuster with the same name. 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.
“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.
I can’t wait to share with you my thoughts on the movie and the inspirational interview we had with both ladies sharing with us their thoughts on being in the movie, on being positive role models, and so much more. This is definitely another DCOM that will be on repeat in our house the whole summer and take it from me if your children are fans of these ladies they’ll be watching it over and over again as well.
