Radio Rebel on tonight

June 1, 2012Mandi Morrison

As you will all know my children love Disney in one form or another, the girls especially love their original movies, so they were very excited to learn that another one was about to be aired, this time starring the ever popular Debby Ryan.

DISNEY CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE, RADIO REBEL, STARRING DEBBY RYAN SET TO TAKE THE UK BY STORM

– UK PREMIERE ON FRIDAY, 01 JUNE 2012 AT 6:00PM ON DISNEY CHANNEL –

Radio Rebel was watched by 4.9 million viewers when it premiered on Disney Channel in the U.S making it the no.1 TV telecast among kids aged 2-11, kids 6-11 & tweens aged 9-14 that day

Teen sensation Debby Ryan, stars in brand new Disney Channel Original Movie, Radio Rebel, as a teen who secretly breaks free from her painfully shy self and into the persona of a bold podcast host, rocking her Seattle high school with music and the message to ‘be yourself’. The film, based on the novel Shrinking Violet, premieres on FRIDAY, 01 JUNE 2012 AT 6:00PM ON DISNEY CHANNEL. The soundtrack will include Debby Ryan performing the smash hit We Got the Beat. 

Ryan also stars in Disney Channel’s hit comedy series Jessie,which first premiered on UK screens in February 2012 and is already pacing to be the number one cable TV series of all time in the US among kids aged 6-11. She first gained popularity among kids, tweens and families in Disney Channel’s hit series The Suite Life on Deck.

In Radio Rebel, Ryan plays Tara Adams, an introverted school girl who can’t bring herself to speak in class – especially when the newly-popular rocker, Gavin, is in her midst. Tara can’t imagine anything more intimidating than when her drama teacher teams her up with Gavin and his prom date, the school’s cliquish queen bee, Stacy. Her shyness at school notwithstanding, alone in her room at home, Tara casts herself as Radio Rebel and, as the host of a nightly podcast, showcases her passion for music, self-expression and her message to abandon cliques and celebrate each other’s differences. Radio Rebel quickly gains fans on campus – especially when her show lands on a big, local radio station – much to the chagrin of the school’s principal who considers Radio Rebel and her message to be in clear defiance of the school’s “anti-distraction policy.” Meanwhile, Gavin raves about the mysterious host and her taste in music but still, shy Tara – now oddly jealous of her alter-ego – can barely finish a sentence in front of him. As students clamour to learn the identity of Radio Rebel and the show’s popularity extends across Seattle, Tara’s two worlds begin to collide, reaching an apex when Radio Rebel is nominated prom-queen and the school, in turn, bans prom, causing a backlash from her fans. Now, Tara wrestles with two even bolder moves – organising an alternative to the prom and revealing that she is Radio Rebel.

The sky + box is set and i’m sure it will be a big hit.
