Unlike live-action Hollywood films, animation isn’t star-driven. Stories are the stars in animation and, if you don’t believe it, look at the biggest animated film of all time: Frozen. Talented actors and singers in every role, none of which can yet sell a movie wholly on their own. Still, having big stars in your animated film doesn’t mean it’s bad. Pixar regularly gets some of the biggest names in the world to voice their characters.

In 2007, I told you about Disney’s plan to tant the memory of the now classic 1980’s teen adventure comedy Adventures in Babysitting by casting Raven Symone (That’s So Raven, The Cosby Show) in the part played by Elisabeth Shue in the original film.
Nearly 20 months went by, which gave us a bit of false hope that the remake had fallen into development heck. Not the case. The Chicago Sun Times reports that Miley Cyrus is also set to star in the project, and will begin filming after she films a few more episodes of her Disney cable television show.
The film will be retitled “Further Adventures in Babysitting,” and is currently set for a tentative 2010 release.
