Hey Girl Meets World fans, you might want to prepare yourselves because we have the best news ever! Two of the main stars from the Disney Channel TV show are about to reunite for a brand new movie. Yep, we’re talking about Danielle Fishel and Sabrina Carpenter, and we seriously can’t wait!
According to Deadline, they’re both co-producing an upcoming flick called The Distance From Me to You. It’s based off a young adult novel written by Marina Gessner. And get this, you guys — Sabrina’s also set to star in the upcoming film!
So what’s it about you ask? Well, the book sounds pretty intense, TBH. It’s about a high school graduate named McKenna, who’s determined to hike the Appalachian Trail from start to finish. Everyone underestimates her ability to complete the journey, but she’s determined to prove them wrong — even if that means doing it alone. During her journey, McKenna ends up meeting a boy named Sam. They fall in love, but when they find themselves in a dangerous situation, McKenna has to step up in a way she never thought possible.
“Danielle and I have been in love with this book for a while and we’ve found the perfect star and partner to tell this story in Sabrina,” coproducer Stan Spry said in a statement. “She’s wildly talented and we’re so excited take this journey with her bringing this epic story to the big screen.”
And as fans know, this isn’t the only role Sabrina’s landed recently. It was announced back in May that the Disney star is also starring in a brand new Netflix dance movie called Work It, alongside Jordan Fisher and Liza Koshy. Not to mention that she recently wrapped up filming for another upcoming flick called Tall Girl, which also stars Paris Berelc, Griffin Gluck, and Ava Michelle. Plus, her new album, Singular: Act II, dropped back in May, so yeah, the 20-year-old has definitely been working hard lately.
As for Danielle, 38, she recently welcomed her first son with her husband, Jensen Karp. Adler Lawrence Karp was born on June 24. And despite suffering some health complications, the little guy is doing a lot better now.
This movie is seriously going to be epic!
