Pearly white teeth, infectious enthusiasm, and catchy songs that become the soundtracks of multiple childhoods—Disney has been entertaining kids for decades, and its charismatic young actors and singers are at the heart of its operation. Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and the Jonas Brothers are just a few examples of bona fide stars spawned by the media conglomerate, complete with purity rings, bipolar diagnoses, and near-fatal drug overdoses. It's a heady mix of global fame, early wealth, and the pressures of living in a very large fishbowl that can drive the once-innocent over the edge, but some stars have made it through to the other side if not unscathed, then at least with their fabulousness intact. They're still in showbiz, surviving and even thriving. So cast your mind back to the noughties and 2010s, and we'll find commonalities between you and the era's most popular Disney stars. You've got somewhere you belong (IYKYK), we promise.

History Lesson

Disney Channel Classics: Ripe for a reboot

Disney Channel has been a staple in the world of children's and teen entertainment, creating shows that have resonated with audiences for their humor, heart, and unique storytelling. As we look back, there are a few gems that not only deserve a revisit but are ripe for a reboot, bringing a fresh perspective to their beloved narratives.

"Phil of the Future" stands out as a prime candidate for a reboot. This quirky show about a family from the 22nd century stuck in the present day captured imaginations with its blend of futuristic gadgets and everyday teenage dilemmas. A modern reboot could delve deeper into the technological and social changes of the future, offering a humorous yet thoughtful commentary on today's world through the lens of time-travel mishaps and cultural misunderstandings. The potential for new stories is as vast as time itself, making it an exciting prospect for both new viewers and fans of the original series.

Another show that screams for a reboot is "Lizzie McGuire." This early 2000s hit was more than just a show; it was a cultural phenomenon that defined a generation. Lizzie's relatable struggles with adolescence, friendship, and self-discovery, combined with the iconic animated inner monologue, made it a standout. Reimagining Lizzie McGuire for today's audience could involve exploring the complexities of modern teenage life, including the impact of social media, the quest for identity in a rapidly changing world, and the timeless challenges of growing up. The blend of nostalgia and contemporary relevance would make it a compelling watch.

Lastly, "That's So Raven" deserves a mention. This show wasn't just funny; it was groundbreaking. Raven Baxter, with her psychic visions and larger-than-life personality, was a character who broke the mold. A reboot could continue to push boundaries, tackling current social issues with humor and heart. The show's original appeal lay in its blend of comedy, family dynamics, and life lessons, a formula that would still resonate with today's audiences. With Raven's visions leading the way, the possibilities for hilarious predicaments and meaningful storytelling are endless.

Is being a Disney Channel star something of a curse?

Disney Channel stars start their careers with pristine images crafted from wholesome, family-friendly shows. What could possibly go wrong? As it turns out, a whole lot. Numerous former Disney celebrities have gone off the rails, and even ones who continue to have success have had their share of problems along the way. Ariana Grande, Jordan Fisher, the Sprouse Brothers, Sabrina Carpenter, Zac Efron, and Olivia Rodrigo seem okay but much brews under the surface. Ariana has been vocal about her struggles with bodyshaming and her mental health. She still experiences post-traumatic stress disorder from the 2017 Manchester bombing. Many stars struggle with the transition from child roles to a more adult image and the sexualized change can often be shocking to the public. Then you have former stars like Britney Spears and Amanda Bynes who havea myriad of well-documented troubles including being placed under conservatorships. Jennette McCurdy recently wrote a bestselling memoir about the pitfalls of Disney stardom, eating disorders, and more called "I'm Glad My Mom Died."
