Disney Channel's newest show, Andi Mack, is making major waves. The show creator Terri Minsky, who created the classic Disney series Lizzie McGuire, is telling a compelling story of self-discovery. Yes, there's plenty of family drama, but it's really about a 13-year-old girl coming into her own with her besties at her side. Plus, Sabrina Carpenter sings the theme song. What's not to love? Well, we're here to bring you all the deets about your soon-to-be newest obsession!
Andi Mack premieres on the Disney Channel on April 7, 2017 at 8:30 p.m., but you can watch it on the Disney Channel app starting March 10, 2017.
The show is available on the Disney Channel app, and the pilot episode is available to stream now for free on YouTube.
The show follows a girl whose life gets turned upside down when her free-spirited older sister, Bex, returns home — and unveils a major family secret that changes Andi's life forever!
SPOILER ALERT: If you don't want to know the secret, don't read on!
Andi discovers that her older sister Bex is actually her mom, and her mom is her biological grandmother. The cast was equally as shocked about the twist! Although Joshua says that he found out at his first audition, Peyton tells us that she didn't find out until further on in the audition process. Sofia spilled that the big reveal left her shook.
"My jaw just dropped. I was like, 'Really? This is a Disney show? It's insanely amazing, and I was like, 'I'm going to watch this, no matter if I'm on the show or not'," she said.
