Get ready, because ‘Andi Mack’ is about to be your favorite new show. HollywoodLife.com has an EXCLUSIVE video that introduces you to Andi and the rest of the characters you’re going to meet when the series premieres April 7!
The show is a contemporary coming-of-age story about a 13-year-old girl named Andi Mack. The Disney Channel series was created by Terri Minsky, who also created a show near and dear to our hearts — Lizzie McGuire — so you’re already going to love it. You’re going to see yourself in Andi and her friends. They’re just that relatable.
“Andi is an everygirl,” Peyton Elizabeth Lee, who plays Andi, says in HollywoodLife.com’s EXCLUSIVE featurette. “She isn’t perfect. She’s really smart and then she’s awkward and she’s super artistic.”
She’s got two adorable best friends: Buffy (Sofia Wylie) and Cyrus (Joshua Rush). Buffy is confident and extremely athletic. She’s not afraid to speak her mind, too! Cyrus may be a tad socially awkward, but he’s a really loyal friend to Andi and Buffy. There’s also Jonah, a fellow classmate who’s really “thoughtful” and “sensitive,” as Asher Angel notes in the video.
Andi’s family life is very important to the series. Her free-spirited older sister Bex (Lilan Bowden) comes home, and on the eve of Andi’s 13th birthday, reveals something that changes everything. Andi is raised by two very overprotective parents: Celia (Lauren Tom) and Ham (Stoney Westmoreland).
While Celia may be strict on both of her girls, Lauren admits that Celia just wants “happiness and success” for Andi and Bex. Andi Mack is the perfect show to watch with your friends and family. The series will make its television debut with a one-hour premiere event Friday, April 7, at 8:30 p.m. on Disney Channel. Raise your hand if you can’t wait!
