Disney Channel’s Austin & Ally was a big part of a lot of people’s childhoods, and ever since it came to an end in January 2016, fans have longed for it to make a comeback. Well guys, J-14 just caught up with Laura Marano, and she told us exclusively that she’d be “100 percent” down to star in a reboot of the show! OMG.
“100 percent, in like a second,” the actress confirmed when we asked her if she’d ever reprise her role as Ally Dawson. “It was one of the best experiences in my life. I love the cast and crew so much. Yes, yes, yes.”
For those who forgot, the series premiered on December 2, 2011, and it also starred Ross Lynch, Calum Worthy, Raini Rodriguez and more. Ally was a shy songwriter who suffered from major stage fright while Austin was a confident singer, and together they made a perfect pair. Their magical relationship started when, without Ally’s knowledge, Austin went ahead and stole one of the songs she wrote. When Ally wanted to let people know that she actually wrote the tune, Austin begged her to have them work together on music instead. Eventually, she agreed, and the show documented their journey together as they tried to handle Austin’s newfound fame. It went on for four epic seasons before it ended, and everyone was pretty sad to see it go.
If the show were to return, the 24-year-old even spilled on some ideas that she’d like to see happen!
“In my head, we would be in some sort of amazing, foreign country,” the Perfect Date star continued. “I feel like we can’t do Italy because Lizzie McGuire already did that, but let’s go to England! Or let’s go to Hawaii — that’s not a foreign country but that’s a very beauty, tropical place. I feel like it would be visually stunning and it would be so fun to hang out with Calum, Rainy and Ross in a vacation spot.”
This needs to happen, like, now!
