Making Mileys, Disney’s Teen Star Factory

TIME wrote an article about how Disney will replace Miley someone new soon: Bridgit Mendler is a willowy, blond teen with a sweet singing voice and decent comic timing. She’s also the show-biz equivalent of the next iPhone, a young Disney star-in-waiting. Mendler, 16, is getting the full Disney Channel rollout.

Introduced with recurring guest spots on two of its hit shows, Jonas and Wizards of Waverly Place, she will star in her own series, Good Luck Charlie, in 2010. Bridgit said: ‘I’ve been told to brace myself. If we have the success I hope we have with the show, everything will change.’

Mendler is following a path to fame the channel has mapped over the past three years as it has launched serial stars into orbit: the supernova Miley Cyrus in 2006, Selena Gomez in 2007, the Jonas Brothers in 2008 and Demi Lovato this year.

Each of these youngsters was given a TV show, the so-called zitcom, followed usually by a recording contract with Disney-owned Hollywood Records, songs in heavy rotation on Radio Disney and on Disney-movie sound tracks, a concert tour with Disney-owned Buena Vista Concerts and tie-in merchandise throughout the Disney stores. Miley & Co. are like modern Mouseketeers, but instead of M-I-C-K-E-Y, they spell C-A-S-H. Full article HERE.

    I love Brigit but I don’t see her ever being a superstar like Miley. Her show doesn’t sound like it will be as successful as Hannah or Wizards but hey maybe the girl can sing. I KNOW will find out if she can. It would be against the disney rules if we didn’t ahahaha.

  • danae garcia

    Of course they will, Brifgit Mendler is way more talented that her, plus Miley is starting to act like a slut. But I dont think that will take her out od show-biz either

  • jonasbounce

    FAIL FAIL FAIL this article fails no girl can “replace” Miley she iss wayyyy to amazing to replace. miley is replacing Disney..

  • leti

    miley is 16 and bridget is 16.
    if they were trying to replace her wouldn’t they try to get someone,oh i don’t know, YOUNGER? like 12-14?

    ANYWAY, I DON’T SEE MILEY GOING ANYWHERE ANYTIME SOON. at all.
    she’s built a huge empire and people still care about her.

    disney hit the jackpot with this girl and they shouldn’t let her go.
    bridget mendler would never replace miley. what are they thinking?

    Uh, didn’t they already try and fail with this “miley replacement” formula twice in a row? Selena and Demi are successful but not the same way Miley is. Miley is an international superstar. Demi and Selena are just plain stars. But they are all talented and I wish Brigit nothing but good luck.

    I thought Debby Ryan was the “next Miley”? In between Selena and Bridget being the “next Miley”?

    Hasn’t Disney learned that NONE of these girls they come up with will ever be as big as Miley?

  • Madeline

    no one is ever gonna replace miley. she has something special about her that is pretty much impossible to duplicate, IMO.

    bridgit is just very blah to me. i’m sure she’s nice and lovely, but she just doesnt seem like a STAR.

  • Anonymous

    hey that girl was Penny on JONAS!

  • Leena

    what pisses me off is the fact that they’re giving her the title “the next miley cyrus.” she’s bridget mendler, and she should be known for being who SHE is. not miley cyrus 2.0. holy bejeebers.

  • pft.

    the thing is, they arent going to have ‘the next miley’ until a whole new generation comes up. miley hasnt aged out of the system yet. they are going to have to come up with a concept as big as hannah montanna. the HSM/HM era is its own. trying to recreate it is going to continue to fail. they have to go somewhere else to make it work.

  • Kathleeen

    I always hear that there’s going to be a new Miley ! Really!?! I don’t think they realize that no one can replace Miley !
    Love you, Miley !<3

  • Doom

    I have never heard Bridget’s sweet singing voice?

    And why do some people call someone new to Disney “The next Miley”? Also, am I the only person who wants Miley out of Disney? They expect too much out of everyone these days.

    Notice how they say “Miley & Co.” and Supernova Miley and then everyone else’s names. Seriously do we need anymore proof that she can’t be replaced? Disney needs to stop trying. They are lucky they still even have Miley.

    hahaha true but teen disney she wanted out of disney but there holoding on to her soooo why would thet replace her?

  • i talked to kevin jonas on saynow today [=

    eww. first of all no one can ever replace miley and ehh bridgets ok but seriously mileys gotten too famous in a matter of time and i honestly dont think that will happen again until miley leaves and someone else thats good comes along…

  • YouBelongWithMe

    No one can replace Miley or ever will. She is Disney’s biggest success, why on the world would they want someone to replace her

    ok. reality is, eventually one day miley will be replaced. lol. eventually we will all be older and have kids of out own and evetually there will be disneys ‘next big thing.’ its silly to think it wont happen. its been done before. its a cycle that will continue.

  • jordanne

    im pretty sure she can NOT replace MILEY i mean come on its MILEY CYRUS for crying out loud i mean Selena is a very talented girl and very famous but she still hasn’t even topped miley and i dnt think Bridget mendler will even become that famous like miley,Selena,or demi cause her show dosent sound good like Hannah Montana or wizards like seriously she probably wont even be more famous then Selena or demi haha and i have a feeling MILEY isn’t going out of SHOWBIZ for a while, maybe out of Disney but not out of the industry:]
    PS i love MILEY

  • Anonymous

    If I were Brigit or Selena, I would be pissed that they always brought up Miley. No one really calls Demi the new Miley anymore cuz she’s kind of established a name for herself with her album being number 1 this year. But they still call Selena the new Miley. Ever since Hilary Duff they have been trying this formula of pushing their stars to do everything and only JB and Miley have really captivated the equivilant of Hilary’s success.

    she seems like a good actress, but i really doubt that she will ever be as big as miley, selena, or demi.

    true. Hilary was just as big as Miley, but in a completely different way because that was 6 years ago when she was her most famous and that was before the days of crazy paparazzi and itunes. I was in 8th grade when the Lizzie Mcguire movie came out, and I remember everyone making a huge deal over it, same with metamorphosis.

  • smiilex3

    - Miley has sold over 14 million albums worldwide.

    – Barbara Walters named Miley one of “2008’s Most Fascinating People”

    – Time Magazine named her one of the “Most Influential People in the World”

    – Miley was on the Hollywood Reporters “2009 Most Powerful Women in Entertainment” list. She is the youngest person in the publication’s history to make the list at age 16.

    – Miles To Go, her first autobiography/memoir reached #1 on “The New York Times” best-seller list with over 1 million copies sold at the age of 16.

    – She is the youngest person in history to have two #1 albums in less than a year.

    – She is the youngest person in history to have four #1 consecutive albums.

    – She was a 2007 Academy Awards presenter, one of the youngest presenters in the history of the Academy Awards at age 15.

    So, still think Bridgit Mendler can live up to be the ‘Next Miley Cyrus’?

  • XD

    why does everyone think that any new girl can replace Miley? They think Selena would, but she didn’t. They think Demi would, and she didn’t either. Now they think Briget would…and I’m saying she won’t. Period. Miley is Miley and no one would ever be like her. And in the words of Joe Jonas: “No one is as famous as Miley Cyrus”

  • Stewie

    If I were a 16 year old girl, I would not even consider Disney until Miley left. As long as she’s there, these girls will be in her shadow. Disney needs to wait until Miley is an adult and out of disney before they start grooming the replacement.

  • Anonymous

    well first she needs to be romantically linked to nick jonas in at least 5 articles.

    THEN she can be the next miley.

    it’s a rite of initiation.

  • pft.

    well that doesnt make their success different. just an added sense of immediacy. but their success is still extremely comparable, marketing included.

    Miley is not following Hilary’s footsteps dough What Hilary done she was kinda dumb she thought doing loads of non-disney movies will get you respect well she was wrong MOST of the non-disney movie hilary don’t floped. I would say Miley is following Lindsey’s career doing disney movies so disney can still support her wait till she can make it on her own and then go. I think miley should do this it is a MUCH smarter career move

  • Chloeeeeeeeeee

    Miley & Co. are like modern Mouseketeers, but instead of M-I-C-K-E-Y, they spell C-A-S-H

    Could not have put it better myself.

    & no, nobody is here to “replace” Miley. They are trying to use the same formula which made Miley so big in the first place, so that they can replicate the success, thus it ending up in $$$$$$$$!

    Seriously its not that hard to understand. I don’t understand why Miley fans feel so threatened. *shrugs*

    It’s PG-13 rated horror movies that flop, not dramas. Jennifer’s Body for example. I think the Last Song is expected to do well because the release date was moved from the dumping ground(January) to around Easter weekend.

    The last song isent expected to flop because first of all, its nicholas sparks and he’s already got a following of teenagers and women who love sappu love stories, AND second, miley cyrus is in it. if miley cyrus is in it, youd have to be an utter idiot to believe that the film’s gonna flop. plus, kelly preston and lots of cool actors are in it too.

    miley is hilary duff pt 2… but miley came IN to disney when hilary was going OUT… disney’s problem is that miley is still there, they can’t replace someone who’s still got the “queen” title… they need to hold on to their horses and just wait a year or so.

  • anonymousS

    yeah it turns to gold because of every ittle kid in the world. being compare to madonna because she’s successful. madonna can’t sing but she’s an entertainer like miley. just that. same with britney… they’re both more successfull than the ones with real singing talent like christina A. and mariah carey. but for right now miley is only this big thatnks to hannah montana that acttracted all little girs in the world… who what will happen once she leaves hannah.

  • Delsy

    Madonna can sing my dad was saying about how you should have heard her back in the day. Same with britney i found this video of when britney was 8 and damn that girl had some pipes on her. But since then she kinda wnet downhill but it don’t really matter because the whole point of the director comparing her with Madonna is that madonna is the best selling female artist if all time worldwide think about that…

    Disney does have a formula. That’s true enough. But JB did it backwards cause they were a band first & made cds first. Then they did Camp Rock & the show. Where as everyone else on Disney started on tv shows & DCOMs, and then got turned into recording artists. Though Demi & Miley have kind of always done music along with acting. HM is music based & When the Bell Rings(or whatever the shows name was Demi was on) usually had Demi singing.

  • Stewie

    Miley won’t be replaced by any 16+ year old. Miley was 13 when she hit it big as Hannah. They should focus on a 13 year old, not a 16 year old. The public loves children. Miley(or HM more accurately) will be replaced by a 13 year old.

    who would want to be like miley? she can’t sing.. her voice is horrible. i would like to have her successful but with ppl that actually know talent not little girls. miley will be done once she leaves disney considering most of her fans started liking her because of hannah montana.. she would be in the same level as hilary duff and the rest if it wasn’t for hannah montana.. soo successful because of little kids that love hannah montana and some teenagers but mostly little girls… 5-12 year olds. all little kids love her and buy all her stuff that’s why she’s so successfull not because of talent. little kids don’t know anything.

    guess what. i’m fourteen. i’m a miley fan. i go to a high school with kids who are 14 & older. they’re miley fans. i went to her concert the other day. there was more older kids then younger kids.

    & if people didn’t like her, why does she have the number one song in the country? don’t believe me? check entertainmentweekly.com

    please, grow up (:

    that’s not true, like miley, hilary’s first album has gone 4x platinum and her show was very successful + she did many non-disney movies.

    Miley is so speacial and thats the thing i love about her thats one thing NO other disney star has the fact that they are unquie. Miley is the only disney being compared to the likes of Madonna, Shirly Temple etc Timbland said Miley has more than it. I have a feeling that Miley’s gonna last considering everything she touches turn gold thats the kind of power i don’t think anyother disneystar has

    Back then there wasn’t a such a large amount of illegal downloading and people used to sell ALOT MORE.

    they’re gonna film another season of hannah next year, after that it’s the end… but we’re talking late 2010, not now.

  • anonymousS

    the question is.. will little kids(majority of her fans) still like her and her new projects? since they all started liking her because of hannah montana. little kids are the reason for her success.. without them she wouldn’t be this far. AND without hannah montana. maybe they’re grow with her and maybe they’ll grow out of her and not like her anymore once they grow up.

  • pft.

    but as you said, someone new comes in when some else is on their way out. i dont mean HM is coming to a close only in terms of episodes. i mean in terms of interest. HM had a good run but up and coming kids are going to start lookin for something new, back to their age again. its nothing bad. but this would be the time the shift starts to be made.

  • Anonymous

    hannah still gets the best ratings of all the disney shows lol

  • pft.

    for one, i am assuming you meant ‘viewership’ since ratings do not relate to interest. which is why i still say what i did. younger kids are evetually going to start lookin for somethin new. i dont exactly think miley is looking for HM to keep her afloat in the first place.

    What is up with Demi? Why would she say that about Selena? I mean, haven’t she been BEST FRIENDS with her for the past TEN FUCKING YEARS?! TEN YEARS?! Aren’t they practically like SISTERS? Doesn’t Demi understand why Selena keeps her mistakes to herself? Heck, If I were Selena, I would keep my mistakes to myself too. Why? Because it’s MY DAMN BUSINESS and I wouldn’t feel like sharing them to the whole damn world, THAT’S WHY! She’s just not open about her mistakes, she’s just trying to be the best role model she can be, not trying to be a “perfect angel”.

  • crazy&s

    I agree, it really bothers me that Demi is dissing Selena because she’s portrayed as an “angel.” I mean, anyone with a brain can guess that Selena’s not a “perfect angel” and she obviously makes mistakes (she’s human!) but she just doesn’t publicy let the world see! I really do feel like Selena’s kindness is genuine and just because she doesn’t want the entire world to see her drama and mistakes doesn’t mean she’s pretending to be someone she’s not. And quite frankly, just because she doesn’t openly flirt with boys on twitter, post her drama, or take scandalous pictures DOES not make her a ‘perfect angel’ – it makes her SMART.

  • Giovanna_JonasGomezLovatoCyrus

    Disney… STOP TRYING TO REPLACE MILEY! It didn’t work with Selena, it’s not gonna work with Bridgit! I’d rather have Selena and Demi as the “new Miley replacement”…even though I know NO ONE can replace Miley.

    But I guess that what they’re trying to say is that every year, they choose someone to make that person a big star. Like in 2006, they launched Miley. In 2007, they launched Selena. In 2008, the Jonas Brothers. And in 2009, Demi Lovato. And now…they’re all HUGE stars! So I’m guessing that in 2010, they’ll make Bridgit big….even though I don’t think she could ever be as big as the Disney “Empire” from this/these past year(s)- Miley is the queen, Jonas are the kings, and Demi&Selena are like the princesses…ya know.. Second-in-charge..kinda..

    Yes, they are talking about Kristen Stewart, but they are saying how she is herself and doesn’t hide anything and then Demi said she would rather look up to someone who doesn’t hide mistakes and when Jac replied and added the “cough” i made it seem like it was geared towards Selena. Cuz why would she add the “cough” if it wasn’t somebody we know of?

  • smiilex3

    that’s what i can’t stand about some people. they are just so in love with selena that they can never find anything wrong with her. if demi makes a comment about her, it’s ALWAYS demi’s fault. maybe SELENA is the one who did something wrong. maybe SELENA is the one abandoning her friend, so Demi has no choice but to move on. maybe SELENA is the one at fault.

    i don’t know, maybe i’m wrong, but i’m not the one assuming. stop pretending like you know everything when it’s clear that you don’t.

I Personally believe she is a breath of fresh air for Disney. I am so ready for Miley to get into the REAL ACTING WORLD she won’t be with Disney forever. She only has one more year with them. By Summer of next year, her contract with Disney will expire and there is nothing we can do about it but watch her grow and do better things besides Hannah Montana

    Everyone know that the Disney Company is like a machine, pumping out new teen stars one after another. Time Magazine did a piece focusing on Disney’s formula and the steps they now take to ensure their stars stick around (and Disney profits of them more) in “Making New Mileys: Disney’s Teen-Star Factory”.

    The article begins with Good Luck, Charlie star Bridgit Mendler, who is being touted as Disney’s “Next Big Thing”. Time says:

    “Mendler is following a path to fame the channel has mapped over the past three years as it has launched serial stars into orbit: the supernova Miley Cyrus in 2006, Selena Gomez in 2007, the Jonas Brothers in 2008 and Demi Lovato this year.”

    The article is very interesting, and worth a read. It definitely highlights how Disney does its best to make money off their young stars. One thing I did not know is Disney has now implemented a “Talent 101? seminar for their upcoming teen stars (note: this seminar is for the stars of Disney who have shows that have not aired yet). According to Time, “It includes instruction from security experts, media-relations consultants and psychologists.”

    You can read the whole article HERE

    It does not surprise me at all that Disney is now taking further steps to teach and mold their young stars, especially the lengths they are taking to keep up the Disney squeaky clean image. Disney’s first super successes, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, are most likely going to be moving on from the Mouse House within the next 12 months, more or less. Disney needs to find a new set of stars (Mendler and perhaps Debby Ryan) to fill the void left by Miley and Selena.

    “Each of these youngsters was given a TV show — the so-called zitcom — followed usually by a recording contract with Disney-owned Hollywood Records, songs in heavy rotation on Radio Disney and on Disney-movie sound tracks, a concert tour with Disney-owned Buena Vista Concerts and tie-in merchandise throughout the Disney stores. Miley & Co. are like modern Mouseketeers, but instead of M-I-C-K-E-Y, they spell C-A-S-H.”

    which wil ONCE AGAIN end in people liking her JUST BECAUSE they dont like miley, there for THATs the only reason she will be somewhat ” big”

    they tried with selena, they tried with demi, they tried with debby

    ew. we don’t want another cyrus in disney tyvm. especially noah.

Now, miley has the opportunity to make it either in music or movies, there is a chance that she can make it in one of those…that’s what makes her a dangerous bc if she makes it in music, she will likely do good in movies bc her fans will be excited to go see her in movies which is equal to a higher box office. The music will allow her to stay relevant therefore helping her acting gigs

    pathetic
    they tried with selena, they tried with demi, they tried with debby
    and how succesful have those been ?
    one is a “rival” one is one of mileys BBFs and the other basically isnt going very far

    fail

    Im not insulting Hilary just stating facts i said that selena is taking \hilary’s path because i think she is selena is also doing loads of movie’s like Hilary too but Selena is really good actress so she might do well and Raise Your Voice didn’t do well at box office or with the critics
    ———
    None of the movies Hilary has done did very well except the Lizzie Mcguire movie, a cinderella story and cheaper by the dozen.

    I understand Disney’s need to keep their options open but there isn’t going to be another Miley for quite some time. Just won’t happen.
    By the way, do you guys know if Miley’s leaving diney after HM finishes? I thought she was but she’s signed up to film Wings hasn’t she and the rights have been bought by disney. Just wondering…

  • Anonymous

    Miley has worked with so many professionals that i think she is here to stay (maybe not as the Disney queen but as an icon)

    list:
    John Travolta, Adam Shankman, Nickolas Sparks, Kelly Preston, john Shanks, Dr. Luke, Timbaland, Tyra, Paul Mccartney, Sherl Crow, All the girls on “Just Stand Up”, Annie Leibovitz, Brett Ratner, Michael Patrick King, etc.

  • musicconstant

    Let me just put my two cents in… Everyone knows the days of cartoons on Disney is long gone. They’ve been restricted to Playhouse when everyone is either sleeping or on their way to school. Now, Disney is all about doing the same thing over and over, trying to make it big so it can bring in the cash. Now, Miley had insta success. That’s a given, and if Bridget can just be herself, maybe she could have some of the same success. I don’t think it would be the SAME Miley had/has, but it could come close.

    And anyone else remember when Debby Ryan was dubbed ‘The New Miley’ last year/this year? [Don't remember cause I didn't even pay attention to that]

    lol stop trying to make miley look better than hilary. sure miley is more successful, but hilary wasn’t a fail like your making her out to be. and didn’t you say that you thought selena was taking hilary duff’s path in the last selena post? and now your denying it that miley’s not when she clearly is also, way more than selena actually. what a biased bitch you are.

    btw, do you not remember raise your voice? that movie was a hugeeee hit.

    and hilary’s actually going to be in two new movies, provinces of night and the story of bonnie and clyde.

    u know what i have to say about this? it’s about time for miley to move on from disney……i honestly don’t think they would ever drop their billion dollar cash baby, but miley should see that while they treat her like a princess, they r just using her for the name and her money. i think that as soon as she turns 18, or even sooner maybe, she should leave disney on their asses and she should try to go out on her own with another company that doesn’t come with so many strings attached.

    sounds like brainwashing to me.

    “Disney Channel is taking extraordinary steps to make its modern Mouseketeers’ stay at the Mouse House as long — and mutually enriching — as possible. Most recently, this includes instituting a Talent 101 seminar. Young actors whose shows have been filmed but not yet aired are required to attend Talent 101 with a parent. It includes instruction from security experts, media-relations consultants and psychologists. Mendler is one of its first graduates. “We learned how to answer questions from the media and how your family has to be your support,” she says. “I was surprised at the amount of security some people recommend — to the degree where you don’t even have a mailbox at your home.”

  • Leena;D

    Why do they call her a young disney star in waiting? Miley is the same age as her. lol…well, maybe a year older, idk when she was born.

    NO NEW MILEY! That is so fucking annoying! OceanUP is annoying too now. Disney is so damn desperate. They arent going to get any girls on cherries or hand sanitizers anytime soon.

    I got to admit, I love these shows. Hannah Montana, Sonny with a chance, WOWP…etc. But I think the old cartoony mickey mouse tinkerbell disney was better. It was such a classic, now disney is so comercialized. I hate it.

    These shows should have a seperate channel and disney should stick to WALT DISNEY! WHAT HE ORIGINALLY WANTED!

  • musicmylife1993

    Disney got VERY big since HSM&HM soo now they know how to get ratings, viewers etc etc.

    Disney has such a strong and smart management. DISNEY itself is BIG, they get at least a million per day from JB,Miley, DISNEY WORLDS, Selena, Demi etc.

    But i dont believe that Melder will replays MIley..no one can. But I dont like her, she doesnt seem so special, she has this simple look that just doesnt grab your attention. but i do think people will watch her, b/c disney is gonna let her be ‘friends’ with Miley, or have a ‘fued’ with her OR let her hang with JB, like that they are ‘dating’. ALL PUBLICITY! just like selena and nick. We’ll see..Let the rumors start -.-

    & no, nobody is here to “replace” Miley. They are trying to use the same formula which made Miley so big in the first place, so that they can replicate the success, thus it ending up in $$$$$$$$!

    Seriously its not that hard to understand. I don’t understand why Miley fans feel so threatened. *shrugs*

    It’s so annoying how people always say “The New Miley Cyrus”. No. There’s only 1 Miley, and honestly I don’t think Disney is going to find anyone else as successful as she was/is. Also, I wonder if it annoys her that Disney is always seeming to want to replace her? Oh well, I’m sure she’ll go off to do bigger and better things without Disneys help.

  • hpaddictedx

    ok. reality is, eventually one day miley will be replaced. lol. eventually we will all be older and have kids of out own and evetually there will be disneys ‘next big thing.’ its silly to think it wont happen. its been done before. its a cycle that will continue.

  • anonymousS

    miley is hilary duff pt 2… but miley came IN to disney when hilary was going OUT… disney’s problem is that miley is still there, they can’t replace someone who’s still got the “queen” title… they need to hold on to their horses and just wait a year or so.
    —–

    i agree so much with this. disney isn’t being so smart now… someone will deff replace miley once she gets out of disney considering majority of her fans are little girls obssessing over hannah montana. but they will grow justl ike hilary fans grew or stopped being fans. who knows what will happen to miley once she leaves disney.

    Of course it’s going to but what people are saying is that it isn’t going to happen while Miley is still on disney. When she is in her 20’s im sure yeah there will be a “new Miley” just like Miley was the “new hilary” but right now none of the disney stars they are trying to make the “new miley” have even touched Miley’s success.

  • pft.

    that was a long term example. but even now, still possible. the same way she quickly took the spotlight off of HSM. as soon as disney can think of there ‘next big idea’ she yes, will be replaced. especially on disney. the hannah phase is coming to close. id expect very soon something will take.

  • Cherry

    If I were Brigit or Selena, I would be pissed that they always brought up Miley. No one really calls Demi the new Miley anymore cuz she’s kind of established a name for herself with her album being number 1 this year. But they still call Selena the new Miley. Ever since Hilary Duff they have been trying this formula of pushing their stars to do everything and only JB and Miley have really captivated the equivilant of Hilary’s success.

    nah! brigit does not have miley IT factor just like selena and demi did not have it.

    Not will go to work.Miley has millions of fans around the world (I (Brazil)).

    funny how ppl say she wont.. she can’t sing but neither does miley nor selena. disney is not about if u can sing or not it doesn’t matter little kids will still obsesse over u and in whatever show ur in… even if u can’t act. that’s disney for u. u can make it really big without having any talent.
