Who here is a big fan of Disney's lab-constructed pop icon, Miley Cyrus? [Applause] OK, good, some fans. Then you'll be pleased to hear the toothy daughter of "Doc" will be starring in Disney's upcoming adaptation of Aprilynne Pike's Wings, playing a sheltered girl having a hard time fitting in at her new high school. Classic tale of teenage alienation. Oh, except that the reason she's alienated is because she's literally a fairy. Says Variety:
Pic will be developed for Cyrus to play Laurel, a 15-year-old who grows up sheltered and home-schooled in a small town. Adjusting to a big high school is difficult, and her suspicion that she's not like the other kids becomes a reality when she sprouts a pair of wings and learns that she's a fairy. Published in May, the novel is the first of a planned four-book series.
Not really anything else to say about the matter.
