So Strange: Billy Ray Cyrus Wants To Make A 'Hannah Montana' Prequel, Even Though He Claimed The Show 'Ruined' His Family!

Wed, June 22, 2011 5:02pm EDT by 17 Comments

We know Miley Cyrus was desperate to move on from her hit Disney show ‘Hannah Montana,’ and we thought Billy Ray was ready to move on as well — yet now he says he wants a prequel to the hit show!

When Miley Cyrus‘s provocative album Can’t Be Tamed dropped last year, we thought it was a definite nail in the coffin for her Disney alter-ego, Hannah Montana. However, her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, is now trying to drum up interest in a Hannah Montana prequel! Do YOU think that’s a good idea?

“You know, there’s wonderful buzz right now for a prequel to Hannah Montana,” Billy Ray told E! News. “I know Miley couldn’t step back and be that little girl, but I could get my mullet back real quick.”

The show premiered in 2006 and aired its final episode in January of 2011, allowing viewers to watch Miley grow from little girl to rebellious teenager…which is why talks of a prequel seem confusing: Miley’s simply too old for the role.

Billy Ray has it figured out already, however: he thinks Miley’s little sister, Noah Cyrus, would be the perfect candidate for the role!

This gushy interview about wanting to do another Hannah Montana project is confusing coming from the man who publicly declared  in February he was “scared” for daughter Miley and that the show was responsible for both ruining his family and destroying his marriage.

That said, the back-and-forth of emotions is nothing new for Billy Ray. He filed for divorce from wife Tish Cyrus in October of 2010, only to withdraw the filing in March of 2011, one month after his explosive interview blaming the Disney channel show.

It is clear that Miley is focusing on her life beyond Hannah Montana, performing racy concerts and filming more mature movies, like last year’s The Last Song with boyfriend Liam Hemsworth. However, little sis Noah may be very interested in this prequel and the opportunities it could afford her.

After all, the Hannah fan base is enormous…but is Billy Ray willing to risk the efffects of fame on his other daughter?

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is this movie a good idea?

YES!YES!YES! It would be amazing please do it! Maybe wait until Noah is 13 the same as miley was when she started Hannah montana because at the moment Noah is only 11 and to be honest that’s to younge but it’s a fab idea!

They cant make a prequel! The only person that can play Hannah Montana/Miley Stewart is Miley Cyrus. If they make a prequel it will ruin the whole franchise for all of the true Hannah fans that have watched from the beginning!

Dear Blair, I’m wondering where you learned to read? In the E! Online interview, Billy Ray Cyrus said absolutely nothing about his daughter Noah. The author of the article did comment, “Sounds like the perfect project for the Billy Ray and Tish’s youngest daughter, 11-year-old Noah Lindsey. Just sayin’.” So, you take that comment by the E! reporter and put it into Billy Ray’s mouth. That’s pretty poor journalism even by’s low standards!

Oh wow. If he does this, he is such a liar. If he says that the show ruined his daughter, then why the heck would he ruin his other daughter’s life? Obviously he wants another big hit for money. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved Miley (well, until she went crazy) and I love Hannah Montana and have respect for her dad, but now he’s being a really big liar!

Well, it would be cute to see Hannah Montana, all over again. I miss watching that show every day. But why don’t you make a show for Emily Osment. Like Lilly should go to college, but also, she is Lola Loftangle! You could use Emily to make the show “Hannah Montana” into “Lola Loftangle”, The song says “every shoe every color” Now it could be “every wig every color” After all Emily said she misses Hannah Montana… So Disney you could do a prequel, or make the show all about lola, either way it would be cool!

@BitterSweet, Thanks, haha I came up with the idea all by myself. So if they do male Lola’s own show.. its would be cool. Then they don’t have to find look alikes of Miley. They could get a whole new cast if they like. But come on Disney… Make a show about Lola’s Double life. Also we already know Emily Osment can sing, she had 3 albums? Then it could be all about Lola, and her singing career. Then they could make Lola Luftangle Album’s. I think Emily osment should get her own show.

Except in Hannah Mintana they made Lily a horrible singer. And made it clear she couldn’t sing in more than 1 episode.
