Invisible Sister

The upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie Invisible Sister, starring Rowan Blanchard (of Disney Channel's Emmy-nominated hit series Girl Meets World) and Paris Berelc (of Disney XD's Mighty Med), is set to premiere Friday, October 9 at 8:00pm, ET/PT on Disney Channel as part of "Monstober," Disney Channel's month-long Halloween-themed programming event. The live-action adventure/comedy continues the Disney Channel Original Movie legacy in spotlighting empowering themes for kids and tweens, including the importance of self-discovery, expressing yourself and embracing your individuality. In Total Viewers, six of the top seven movies in cable TV history are Disney Channel Original Movies. Disney Channel has also delivered TV’s #1 original movie telecast among Tweens for 14 consecutive years (2002-15).

Set in New Orleans during Halloween, Invisible Sister follows Cleo (Blanchard), an introverted young science prodigy whose class project accidentally turns her popular older sister and the school's star lacrosse player, Molly (Berelc), invisible. Cleo, who has become accustomed to living in Molly's shadow, is forced to step outside her comfort zone and into the shoes of her older sister to take her place on the day of an important game. As the sisters try to convince their friends, teachers and Molly's lacrosse team that nothing is wrong, they must rely on each other like never before, and in doing so, they gain a better understanding of one another and themselves. Meanwhile, they are up against the clock to find an antidote to reverse the effects of Cleo's experiment before Molly's invisibility becomes permanent. Invisible Sister also stars Karan Brar (BUNK'D, Jessie) as Cleo's quirky best buddy and fellow science enthusiast, George; Rachel Crow (X Factor) as Molly's outgoing best friend and teammate, Nikki; Will Meyers (Bella and the Bulldogs) as Cleo's crush and science scholar, Carter; Austin Fryberger (Kirby Buckets) as Molly's goofy but affable boyfriend, The Coug; and Alex D├ęsert (The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes) as the high school science teacher, Mr. Perkins.

Josh Segal and Associates get their first case, defending Lavinia Peck-Foster, the eccentric First Lady of East Peck, who was found with her husband Edgar's corpse in a suitcase in her trunk. Lavinia is surly, entitled, larger than life and, instead of hugs, her currency of connection is a face slap. On the other hand, she is wealthy so she can pay him. Winning this case could be Josh's ticket for his true goal, to be considered a "Pecker." Unfortunately, complications and bodies keep piling up and there are more questions than answers.

When Judge Kamiltow rules that Lavinia must stand trial for the murder of her husband, Josh and the team try to poke holes in the timeline of the case Carol Anne will present.
