Did you know that we only have three more days to go before Debby Ryan’s new Disney Channel movie, 16 Wishes, premieres?
June 25th at 8pm ET is the important date and time to mark on your calenders. The Suite Life on Deck actress will star as Abby Jensen, a newly 16-year-old girl who has been planning for her sweet sixteenth birthday for as long as she can remember.
After carefully choosing the many wishes that she would most like to have granted on her special day, a string of strange occurrences begin to unfold. It’s only once her wishes begin to come true, however, does she realize that maybe everything that she was wishing for she already had.
Seventeen caught up with Debby and she had this to tell the magazine about the movie, “It’s actually darker, at some points, than a normal Disney Channel Original Movie,” she admitted. ”Even when things get bad for Abby, there’s always the possibility for them to get a little bit worse — and we were allowed to explore that in our acting.”
So will teenage girls like 16 Wishes? Debby certainly thinks so. ”Teenage girls will especially love this movie because we all have wishes of our own and it’s really cool to see all of those things coming true for someone,” Debby added. “It sort of makes you think, ‘Would I do it this way? Would I ask for it in this order?’”
