After Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, Disney Channel is ready to launch its latest tween star. Bridgit Mandler, the 16-year-old who has guest starred in several Disney shows like "J.O.N.A.S!" and "Wizards of Waverly Place", has been hired by the mouse house to be the lead cast of a new series called "Good Luck Charlie".

"We just fell in love with her," said Adam Bonnett, senior Vice President of original programming at Disney Channel. "She has all the attributes of a Disney star." Bridgit's cameo can next be seen in the four-part saga of "Wizards" that airs starting July 24. In the show, she is guest starring as a vampire girl named Julie.

The show is going to be part of Disney's program next year. Bridgit will play the role of Teddy Holliday who, together with her brothers must babysit their baby sister named Charlie while their parents go to work. According to THR, Teddy will create a video diary for Charlie, telling her about the adventure of the day and also advising her on what to do when she grows up.

"It felt like the right time to have a show with two parents, to debunk the myth that Disney never has the mom in the picture," Bonnett said. "Because it is a myth." Supporting as the parents are Leigh Allyn Baker and Eric Allan Kramer. Playing Teddy's brothers are Disney regular Jason Dolley and newcomer Bradley Perry.

Miley isn't the Queen of Disney!!! Raven Symoné and Brenda Song are!!! By the way Demi and Selena rule... Miley really made Disney looks bad!! She was at her best in Season 1!!!! but after the middle of Season 2, she started to suck....

I won't follow this new girl, she's taking miley cyrus's title. miley is a Christian and i'll always follow miley cyrus. i love miley cyrus more than anything and i hope my kids will be able to love her as much as i do.

UGhhh one miley cryus is enough. Miley already made disney look bad!

I love miley but she's not going to be the queen for ever! She's not the new Miley! and Miley wasn't the new Hilary Duff and this one ain't the new Miley! No one can be the new miley or the new Selena or Demi! cos they are their own people! Miley is energetic in Hannah Montana, and Demi's funny in Sunny with a chance! and Selena OMG she's hilarious but not in a funny way in a way that Harper nearly makes her look smart when you know she's actually real dumb in Wizards. AND SHE IS SO LAZY! I LOVE HER!! but this one what's her name........ bridget I think.... well her show will probly be as popular as Brian O'Brian which is a lil funny but they are copying Mr. Bean! any when it all comes to all, Miley ain't gonna be here forever!!

i dont think miley can sing or act. she's not funny either. demi and selena are the best dc girl stars. both can sing and act but demi is the better singer nd selena is the better actor. both of them r x-tremly talented.

She will never be as big as MILEY CYRUS!!!!!!Miley RULES

Shanaynay I totally agree with you.... Miley will always be my favorite!

I wish they would just stop saying "the next Miley"...Why not say New DC star, and see if breaks big. Dont put that kind of pressure on em. Stop making predictions and let the ratings numbers speak for themselves. Miley is multi talented: sings & acts, plus the energy, she is almost hyper =]

relax - Disney is just preparing itself for the BIG stars growing up & moving on - BUT Miley is Definitely the Queen & Selena & Demi are right behind her. But remember before Miley was Hilary Duff & Raven so Disney needs to keep looking for newer younger talent to keep the shows for the tweens going. Personally I'd be very happy if Hannah Monatana went on for at least 2 more years & Wizards & Sonny too - but I would not care if they took Jonas off tomorrow because that show stinks.

Oh! ya right just like they said about two years ago. And look who is still the queen of teen a and BIGGER THAN EVER
posted by Qwerty on Jul 15, 2009
Seriously? I could see Demi as a star like Miley, same with Selena, but this call is almost as lame as Miranda Cosgrove. She was good in JONAS, but I couldn't see her becoming a superstar, her voice wasn't amazing, not something I even remembered until this article. I hope she does well in the industry, as she is talented, but I couldn't imagine her being as big as Miley, Demi, or Selena. And all of the "next Miley's" have become superstars in their own right WITHOUT taking Miley's thrown, so I can't see anyone overthrowing the queen of teen anytime soon!

She is nothin compared to even demi or selena

Disney would LOVE for her to become 'the next Miley' but there is only one Miley and she is a rare talent...Miley is cuter than anything, sweet, a great singer, a great actress, a great dancer, did I mention beautiful and cute?
