The High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star revealed to HollywoodLife that she’s always been a fan of The Princess and the Frog. “I love Tiana and her fearlessness!” she said. “She taught me at a young age to never stop dreaming! Also “Almost There” has been such a good luck song of mine. I always keep it on replay to remind myself to never give up and know that this is only the beginning of the journey ahead!”

The Disney Princess Remixed special will premiere on August 27 at 7:30 p.m. on Disney Channel and will be available to stream on Disney+.
