Overview

Another teen-oriented Disney Channel comedy series, Hanna Montana was a tailor-made vehicle for Miley Cyrus, the daughter of country & western star Billy Ray Cyrus. Newly arrived in Malibu from her Tennessee hometown, heroine Miley Cyrus of course did her best to adjust to her new lifestyle and to her classmates at Seaview Middle School -- while at the same time carrying on a "secret life" as preteen pop star Hannah Montana! Billy Ray Cyrus himself was seen as Miley's father and manager Robbie -- strict, loving, traditionalist, and "hip" all in one. Another celebrity relative in the cast was Emily Osment, younger sister of Haley Joel Osment, as Miley's best friend Lilly Truscott. Rounding out the cast was Jason Earles as Miley's traditionally irksome brother Jackson, and Mitchel Musso as classmate Oliver, who carried a torch for the heroine. The weekly, 30-minute Hannah Montana debuted March 24, 2006.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Miley Stewart (Miley Cyrus) seems just your ordinary high school “dork.” But she has an extraordinary secret: She’s the fabulous, wildly popular pop star Hannah Montana, recently transplanted from Tennessee to tony Malibu. This volume contains four episodes from the Disney Channel series’ first season. They are not presented chronologically here, so it is best to start with “Lilly, Do You Want to Know a Secret,” the debut episode, in which Miley’s friend (Emily Osment, a natural talent who deserves her own show) discovers her secret and is upset that Miley didn’t trust their friendship enough to tell her. In “Miley Get Your Gum,” Miley is compelled to reveal her identity to Oliver, her platonic friend, who is obsessively crushing on Hannah. In “I Can’t Make You Love Hannah if You Don’t,” Miley tries to be in two places at once when she attends a Hannah Montana concert with her boyfriend, who prefers hip-hop to Hannah. In "Money for Nothing, Guilt for Free," Miley, Lilly, and Oliver are determined to top obnoxious mean girls Amber and Ashley in a fund-raising drive. Hannah Montana combines elements of Disney’s other popular tween sitcoms (twitcoms?): misfit empowerment (Lizzie McGuire); fantasy fulfillment (The Suite Life of Zack & Cody); and coming-of-age, lesson-learning misadventures (That’s So Raven). Miley is admirably well grounded, and Lilly is the very model of a faithful best friend. A teacher is unfortunately portrayed as a buffoon, but at least Miley’s father (played by her real-life dad, country star Billy Ray), is a rock-solid voice of reason, even if some of his southern-fried adages are indecipherable. Painful Disney Channel acting is in effect (punch every precocious punch line, mug shamelessly), but the writing can be clever, and Hannah’s catchy songs are perfectly pitched to join High School Musical tunes on your iPod.

    I give one star to all Hannah Montana things

    Hannah Montana is annoying, pointless, childish, and not funny! I think Miley Cyrus should just be herself, not pretend shes Hannah Montana in this pointless show.

    Hannah Montana: Livin' the Rock Star Life

    Why does every disney channel show have the people all rich i mean come on would'nt one of her ascistints tell somebody that she is hannah montana i mean can't they just have a show about a kid that does'nt have that much money but still has a great time thats the prob with disney they don't know what a real kid is like and sometimes the movie starts out that the kid is poor then becomes rich or its the other way around like Cowbelles.

    Livin' the rock star life touches lives!!!!!(cindof)

    This show has inspired me to give everything my best,and to follow my dreams.I know it's every girls dream to be a singer,so Hannnah Montana is a GREAT rolemodel for all those girls out there!I have to admit,though,I've chatted with hannah montana(miley cyrus) on neopets,and she's not all that!She's a great person and character,but she's not that great of a friend!

    Did you Ever Notice

    Almost every disney movie, either a parent is dead, the kid is completely rich and complains that their poor, or BOTH... well she doesn't complain but everything else applies, and I'm sick of it... Why doesn't disney make the shows like they used to be, with culture, diversity! How many non caucasian people are there in this movie like 1 or 2! It's stupid, I remember Smart Guy, that was good, Boy Meets World is still awesome... how about that movie Gotta Kick It Up, about a hispanic high school, that would be racist now according to disney... well at least it's not a cartoon...
