[via press release from Disney Channel]

ROWAN BLANCHARD AND SABRINA CARPENTER, STARS OF HIT SERIES "GIRL MEETS WORLD," CAST IN UPCOMING DISNEY CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIES

-- Sofia Carson of the upcoming movie Disney's "Descendants" and Paris Berelc of Disney XD's "Mighty Med" Also Set to Star in the Newly Announced Adventure Comedies --

13 year-old Rowan Blanchard and 15 year-old Sabrina Carpenter (of Disney Channel's hit comedy series "Girl Meets World") and 16 year-old Paris Berelc (of Disney XD's "Mighty Med") and Sofia Carson (of this year's highly anticipated Disney's "Descendants") will each add an upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie to their credits this year, as the Channel continues its focus on developing young entertainers and giving them opportunities to showcase their talent across multiple projects.

The movies will be part of Disney Media Sales and Marketing presentations to potential sponsors during the Kids Upfront this year.

Rowan Blanchard and Paris Berelc will star in the live-action adventure/comedy "Invisible Sister."

Sabrina Carpenter and Sofia Carson will star in "Further Adventures in Babysitting," inspired by the hugely popular 1980s film "Adventures in Babysitting."

The movies are set to begin production this spring during a production hiatus for "Girl Meets World" and "Mighty Med." They are scheduled to premiere beginning in Fall 2015 and early 2016 on Disney Channels around the world.

Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, "We know these four young actresses all have the potential for extraordinary careers, and we're excited to give them new opportunities to showcase their talents. We're especially proud of Rowan and Sabrina, as they have helped drive the success of our hit series 'Girl Meets World.'" He continued, "These new movies bring our viewers comedic and heartfelt stories that the entire family can enjoy together, and I'm particularly thrilled to introduce a new take on a personal favorite 'Adventures in Babysitting' to a whole new generation."

"Invisible Sister" is the comedy adventure story of Cleo (Rowan Blanchard), a girl whose science project goes terribly wrong, making her popular older sister, Molly (Paris Berelc), suddenly invisible. It will be directed by DGA Award-winner Paul Hoen ("Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam," "How to Build a Better Boy") and executive-produced by Sheri Singer ("Halloweentown," "Girl Vs. Monster"). The script was written by Jessica O'Toole & Amy Rardin ("Greek," "The Carrie Diaries"), and Matt Eddy & Billy Eddy ("Teen Beach 2," "Bad Hair Day"). "Invisible Sister" is based on the book My Invisible Sister by Beatrice Colin and Sara Pinto.

In "Further Adventures in Babysitting," a reimagined tale of the popular teen film, a dull evening for two competing babysitters, Jenny (Sabrina Carpenter) and Luci (Sofia Carson), turns into an adventure in the big city as they hunt for one of the kids who somehow snuck away. Written by Tiffany Paulsen ("Nancy Drew"), it will be directed by John Schultz ("Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer," "Like Mike") and executive-produced by Michelle Manning ("Teen Beach 2," "The Breakfast Club").

In Total Viewers, five of the top six movies in cable TV history are Disney Channel Original Movies. Disney Channel has also delivered TV's #1 original movie telecast among Tweens for 13-consecutive years (2002-14) and the Top 2 movies of all time in Total Viewers.
