Disney has released the first trailer for its “Adventures in Babysitting” remake — and it looks like something parents who were fans of the 1987 original can definitely enjoy with a new generation.
The remake stars “Girl Meets World’s” Sabrina Carpenter and Disney’s “Descendants” Sofia Carson as rival babysitters tasked with looking after four kids in what turns into a wild night that none of them will ever forget. So with two babysitters and four kids, it’s double the danger on the streets of Chicago.
As charge Emily Cooper (Nikki Hahn) says, “There was a fire, a minor brush with the law, a major run from some bad guys, a rare sapphire ferret, green hair, a roller derby, fake tattoos, tow trucks, a police station, a rap battle … but that’s our little secret.”
There’s also a shot of Jenny (Carpenter) uttering Elisabeth Shue’s famous line from the original, “Don’t mess … with the babysitter!”
C’mon, it’s airing on Disney. The line can’t be exactly the same.
“Adventures in Babysitting” premieres summer 2016 on Disney Channel.
