THE WORLD PREMIERE OF "16 WISHES," STARRING DEBBY RYAN, SET FOR FRIDAY, JUNE 25 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

The world premiere of "16 Wishes," starring Debby Ryan ("The Suite Life on Deck"), is set for FRIDAY, JUNE 25 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. The movie follows Abby Jensen (played by Ryan), a teenager who can't wait to grow up, and when she's handed the chance to make all her wishes come true, quickly learns the importance of being careful what you wish for.

Eager to grow up, Abby has been planning for her Sweet 16th birthday ever since she was a little girl. When the big day finally arrives, she excitedly adds her 16th and final wish to the secret wish list she's been keeping. Then begins the first of many unusual occurrences that day, each including visits from a peculiar woman, Celeste, whose first appearance is to deliver a mysterious box of 16 birthday candles.

Her birthday gets a whole lot brighter when Abby realizes that the candles correspond to her 16 wishes and that they're each coming true´┐Ż She lands the attention of her crush, she gets back at her lifelong nemesis, Krista Cook, and is suddenly fashionable, athletic and popular. But when one wish goes horribly awry, it changes everything, even her relationship with best friend Jay; leading Abby to finally understand that being a kid isn't so bad.

Starring are Debby Ryan ("The Suite Life on Deck") as Abby Jensen; Jean-Luc Bilodeau ("Kyle XY") as Jay Kepler; Anna Mae Routledge ("Harper's Island") as Celeste; and Karissa Tynes ("Aliens in America") as Krista Cook.

Produced by MarVista Entertainment, the movie was written by Annie DeYoung (Disney Channel's "StarStruck," "Princess Protection Program") and was directed by Peter DeLuise ("Stargate SG-1").

Jacobs ("Special Delivery") and Fernando Szew ("Deadly Honeymoon") served as Executive Producers along with co-production partner Ron French ("Battlestar Galactica") from Unity Pictures Group.
