The Disney Channel is about to hit a major milestone–the premiere of its 100th original movie! The movie, “Adventures in Babysitting“, stars some pretty big Disney channel names; Sabrina Carpenter from “Girl Meets World” and Sofia Carson from “Descendants“.

The movie is inspired by the 1980’s “Adventures in Babysitting” film that tells the story of two teenage girls who are incredibly different from one another. The two teen girls are both competing for the same photography internship, one is the reliable Jenny (Sabrina Carpenter) and the other, the living-on-the-edge kind of girl Lola (Sofia Carson). The two girls accidentally swap phones, with Lola volunteering to do a babysitting job that a family meant to contact Jenny to do. Things go a little haywire, and the film follows the girls’ hectic night that involves sneaking out to a concert, among other adventures in the big city.

The movie premieres June 24th at 8pm (EDT), with many sneak peeks leading up to the big 100th Disney Channel Original Movie debut:
