As a kid who grew up in the 90’s, Disney channel shows were a special part being a kid. Came home, grabbed some lunch, plopped in front of the TV, and watched your favorite show. Lizzie McGuire or That’s So Raven, or maybe if you were lucky, a Disney Channel Original Movie, like Zenon or Brink!
From these shows we were able to relate to the characters, whether it be a test we forgot to study for, a boy we crushed hard on, fights with our siblings, the Disney Channel had it covered.
Except, it was still pretty fairy tale. Hardly ever were there hard hitting issues. Disney was no Degrassi. The newest show Disney has now aired changes it up. Characters that are relatable, on more than one level.
Their new show, Andi Mack, focuses on a teenaged girl named Andi. She sports a short hair-do, has a tomboy-ish and hardcore creative vibe, smart, and comes from a mixed-race family.
But, that’s not the stunner. Watch the episode below! I was shocked, happy, and now completely addicted. As a girl in her late 20’s, Disney has won me over with this show and I can’t wait to see more!
