THE WORLD PREMIERE OF "16 WISHES," STARRING DEBBY RYAN, SET
FOR FRIDAY, JUNE 25 ON DISNEY CHANNEL
The world premiere of "16 Wishes," starring Debby Ryan
("The Suite Life on Deck"), is set for FRIDAY, JUNE 25 (8:00
p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. The movie follows Abby Jensen (played by
Ryan), a teenager who can't wait to grow up, and when she's handed the
chance to make all her wishes come true, quickly learns the importance of
being careful what you wish for.
Eager to grow up, Abby has been planning for her Sweet 16th birthday
ever since she was a little girl. When the big day finally arrives, she
excitedly adds her 16th and final wish to the secret wish list she's been
keeping. Then begins the first of many unusual occurrences that day, each
including visits from a peculiar woman, Celeste, whose first appearance is
to deliver a mysterious box of 16 birthday candles.
Her birthday gets a whole lot brighter when Abby realizes that the
candles correspond to her 16 wishes and that they're each coming true? She
lands the attention of her crush, she gets back at her lifelong nemesis,
Krista Cook, and is suddenly fashionable, athletic and popular. But when
one wish goes horribly awry, it changes everything, even her relationship
with best friend Jay; leading Abby to finally understand that being a kid
isn't so bad.

Jensen; Jean-Luc Bilodeau ("Kyle XY") as Jay Kepler; Anna Mae
