Disney ‘Star Darlings’ Debuts First On-Air Special on Disney Channel Friday! (Wisconsin Native Skylar Stecker Sings remix of Wish Now)

Disney Publishing Worldwide Launches Inspirational New Multiplatform Property, ‘Star Darlings’

Disney Publishing Worldwide Launches Inspirational New Multiplatform Property, ‘Star Darlings’

Disney today announced the television premiere of the first on-air special of its original new tween property “Star Darlings” FRIDAY, JANUARY 29 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. The on-air special will extend the stories from the popular “Star Darlings” book series from Disney Publishing Worldwide that feature 12 unique girls who encourage tweens to celebrate their individuality, make positive choices, and show that they can make any wish a reality. “Star Darlings” first debuted in North America in September 2015 as a multiplatform lifestyle experience featuring content, music, and products spanning across books, online, mobile, toys and apparel.

“The ‘Star Darlings’ digital short form content has already garnered millions of views across multiple platforms,” said Andrew Sugerman, executive vice president, Disney Publishing Worldwide. “We are excited to expand the world of Starland to television and give fans across the country even more ways to join the ‘Star Darlings’ on their magical adventures.”

The 30-minute on-air special, “Becoming Star Darlings,” introduces viewers to 12 “Star-Charmed” girls who pursue their individual wishes with determination and the help of their friends. The story begins on Starland where a major crisis is afoot, and the girls are chosen to be the first student Starlings to venture to Earth, or as they call it, “Wishworld.” Determined to succeed, the girls show courage and ingenuity—plus a whole lot of humor—as they guide others on Earth to discover happiness and fulfillment.

“Star Darlings” is rich with themes of friendship, confidence, leadership, and teamwork, and centers on characters that embody the qualities and characteristics of today’s tweens. The stories and journeys represented in the animated specials and book series are designed to inspire tweens to go after their dreams.

Music is a key element of the “Star Darlings” property, and as part of the property’s expansion to television, teen singer-songwriter and actress Skylar Stecker was brought on to remix the “Star Darlings” theme song, “Wish Now.” The remix, along with a live-action music video, features Stecker’s powerhouse vocals coupled with hip-hop-inspired beats and electro-pop synths. The Wisconsin native, whose debut album This Is Me is out now on Cherrytree Records, has been featured on Vevo’s DSCVR and iHeart Radio’s Next Up series which showcase in-studio performances from the most exciting new artist discoveries in music today. Also an actress, Skylar recently guest starred on Disney Channel’s hit TV show, Austin & Ally.

“I am so honored to be a part of the incredible world of ‘Star Darlings,’” said Stecker. “I’ve always wanted to be a singer. To be able to live out my dream and do what I love inspires me to encourage others to do the same. ‘Star Darlings’ feels like my own personal story and I can’t wait for my fans to check it out.”

The “Wish Now” remix is now available for download on iTunes, and on the “Star Darlings” Facebook, YouTube and Instagram channels.

The second “Star Darlings” on-air special, “Star Darlings Friendships,” is scheduled to air on the Disney Channel on March 25, 2016.

“Star Darlings” books, dolls and apparel are now available at mass retailers nationwide. The “Star Darlings” doll line, created in collaboration with master toy partner JAKKS Pacific, features dolls from both Starland and Wishworld. The Starland Fashion Dolls let their inner star shine with “out-of-this-world” fashions, while the Wishworld Fashion Dolls feature stylish, down-to-earth fashions for adventures on Wishworld. A full range of all-new products for tweens including fashion, accessories, beauty, and more will be available in fall 2016.

Top 10 Disney Villain Sidekicks

by: D-Team Member Cassandra

Most Disney villains prefer to work alone, and for good reason. Top notch evil sidekicks are far and few between. This one isn’t evil enough, that one isn’t smart enough; the reasons for flying solo are too numerous to count for some of our favorite baddies. There are, however, a few evil-doers that prefer the ignorant and complacent following of a cronie or two. Take a look at our top 10 evil sidekicks; the loyal ones, the dumb ones, and even an evil one or two!

 

  1. Horace and Jasper – 101 Dalmatians
  • Horace and Jasper are Cruella DeVil’s not-so-evil henchmen. They are charged with the kidnapping and holding of Pongo and Perdita’s puppies. Cruella learns quickly, though, that evil cannot be bought. While Horace and Jasper do their best to get the job done (which we know isn’t saying much), they have no loyalty to Cruella and leave her service just as quickly as they entered it.

    Horace and Jasper - 101 Dalmatians

    Horace and Jasper – 101 Dalmatians

  1. Lefou – Beauty and the Beast
Lefou - Beauty and the Beast

Lefou – Beauty and the Beast

  1. Flotsam and Jetsam – The Little Mermaid
  • Ursula’s eel minions prove themselves to be pretty useful for not having limbs. They are exceptional spies, combine to create a crystal-ball like portal for Ursula, and are successful in all of their evil duties. They are just as dark and mysterious as their villain, and are fiercely loyal until Ursula accidentally kills them.

    Flotsam and Jetsam - The Little Mermaid

    Flotsam and Jetsam – The Little Mermaid

  1. Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed – The Lion King
  • As sidekicks go, this trio is relatively well-rounded. Shenzi is the smartest of Scar’s minions, Banzai the meanest, and then there’s Ed. The hyenas are loyal to Scar for years and carry out his evil work happily. But when Scar himself disgraces them, they change sides. Lesson learned: either treat your lackeys better, or don’t outnumber your own evil self.

    Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed - The Lion King

    Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed – The Lion King

  1. Mr. Smee – Peter Pan
  • Another fiercely loyal lackey, Mr. Smee is Captain Hook’s silly little assistant. He shaves Captain Hook’s beard (or a seagull’s bum, if you want to be technical), cooks his meals, and offers the Captain a few genuinely good ideas. Mr. Smee gives Hook the idea to kidnap Tiger Lilly and later the idea to kidnap Tinkerbell. Both solid ideas, just poorly executed. Mr. Smee follows Hook till the end, even chasing him and the crocodile across the sea.

    Mr. Smee - Peter Pan

    Mr. Smee – Peter Pan

  1. Anastasia and Drizella – Cinderella
  • Cinderella’s step-mother didn’t need much help in concocting her evil plans, but she used her daughters in executing them. When Cinderella showed up with all of her chores finished and her own mouse-made dress, she let Anastasia and Drizella do her dirty work and rip the dress to shreds. Family make easy choices for evil lackeys, and these girls performed their evil duties quite well. (You can listen to our interview with current voice of Lady Tremaine in our archives at: DizRadio.com)

    Anastasia and Drizella - Cinderella

    Anastasia and Drizella – Cinderella

  1. Pain and Panic – Hercules
  • Hades has his hands full with Pain and Panic. While fiercely loyal, the duo is at a lack for wits. They are assigned one task and fail miserably, resulting in the creation of Hades’ mortal enemy, Hercules. The pair is exceptionally useful, however, with their ability to shapeshift. They trick Megara, Hercules, Pegasus…just about everyone. If only they were a bit more competent in everything else!

    Pain and Panic - Hercules

    Pain and Panic – Hercules

  1. Kronk – The Emperor’s New Groove
  • Evil Henchmen don’t come any more loyal than Kronk, but there are surely more intelligent ones out there. Kronk carries out Ezma’s every whim, including carrying her through the jungle. He encourages Ezma to have a little more fun and not take for granted the simpler things in life, like spinach puffs. Plus, he comes with his own theme music.

    Kronk - The Emperor’s New Groove

    Kronk – The Emperor’s New Groove

  1. Sir Hiss – Robin Hood
  • One of the smartest evil sidekicks on our list, Sir Hiss truly has Prince John’s best interests at heart. He sees right through Robin Hood and Little John’s disguises and advises his prince to stay away. He is a sneaky spy and loyal subject, but Prince John does what Prince John wants. If Sir Hiss had been calling the shots, Robin Hood may have been a much different story.

    Sir Hiss - Robin Hood

    Sir Hiss – Robin Hood

  1. Iago – Aladdin
  • As evil sidekicks go, Iago has it all. He’s equally as evil as Jafar, he’s incredibly loyal, and he’s smart enough to contribute to menacing plans. He proves himself useful in providing a faux storm for Jafar, spying on the Sultan, and tricking Aladdin out of possession of Genie’s lamp. He even followed Jafar into imprisonment (though maybe not so willingly). Iago is certainly the baddest of the secondary baddies. (You can listen to our interview with Iago’s master Jafar, Jonathan Freeman in our archives at: DizRadio.com)
