The movie version of the popular Disney TV series have been moved up three weeks from its May 1, 2009 schedule.
"Hannah Montana: The Movie" is coming out earlier than expected. Previously scheduled to be hitting the theaters on May 1, 2009, the comedy movie from Walt Disney Pictures has been officially pushed forward to April 10, 2009 date. The mouse house have let out a press release on the matter on Monday, September 22, according to MTV News.
In April 10 slot, "Hannah Montana" will be competing for the box office spot against Japanese anime adaptation from director James Wong "Dragonball" and Warner Bros. Pictures comedy starring Seth Rogen and Anna Faris, "Observe and Report". If it sticks with its old date, the teen-flick has to go head to head with "X-Men" spin-off, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine".
Bringing the story of "Hannah Montana" series to the next level, the Peter Chelsom-directed film will put its attention more to Miley Stewart when she deals with her overwhelming success as pop superstar Hannah Montana and tries to find once again what is really important in life by going back to her hometown of Crowley Corners, Tennessee. It stars Miley Cyrus as the titular character and is supported by Billy Ray Cyrus, Jason Earles, Emily Osment, Mitchel Musso, Vanessa Williams and many others.
