Disney Channel Stars Reunite, Celebrate 100th Original Movie & ‘Adventures in Babysitting’

Disney Channel stars both young and old descended on the DGA Theater in Hollywood for the network’s premiere of its 100th Disney Channel Original Movie, “Adventures in Babysitting.”

Adventures in Babysitting” stars Sabrina Carpenter, Sofia Carson and Kevin Quinn were joined by a full slate of DCOM alums, including Dove Cameron, China Anne McClain, Christy Carlson RomanoTahj Mowry as well as JoeyMatthew and Andrew Lawrence.

“I think it’s sort of surreal to say not only did I grow up with these movies, but that I was sort of a part of history somehow,” Carpenter said. “We became such a family during filming — all of the children, the director. They treated us like family and it made the experience 10 times more fun.”

The film is a reimagining of the 1987 movie of the same name, which starred Elisabeth Shue as an unlucky babysitter who spent her night chaperoning kids on an adventure throughout Chicago. The remake has Carpenter and Carson as two polar opposite teen girls competing for a babysitting gig.

“I’ve never worked on a project so close to home as this one,” added Quinn. “We were so passionate, and invested in the product and you can see how much fun we had.”

Since Disney Channel’s first original movie, “Under Wraps,” debuted in 1997, the TV movies have become bigger with “High School Musical 3” bowing in theaters and 2015’s “Descendants” being the network’s most ambitious project to date.

Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide, said the TV movies spurred from the idea of “what can we do to transform Friday night programming into appointment viewing for kids and family.” Marsh added, “We had to fill that slot with things that were special, and we hope we’ve succeeded.”

“Adventures in Babysitting” premieres June 24 on Disney Channel.
