A second track will be released in January and will be followed by a 5-song EP in Spring 2016.
“Star Darlings” features 12 female characters who “embody the qualities and characteristics of today’s tweens, and have been created to resonate with the audience through a multiplatform lifestyle experience tailored just for them. Each character has her own wish that she pursues with the help of her friends, and with themes that include friendship, confidence, leadership, and teamwork, the stories are designed to inspire girls to go after their dreams.“’Star Darlings’ represents a fully-realized world where strong, confident girls are front and center,” shared Andrew Sugerman, executive vice president of Disney Publishing Worldwide. “We’re excited to announce this all-new, innovative property tailor-made for today’s tween, and the launch of ‘Star Darlings’ represents one of our broadest multi-platform launches to date.”
The “Star Darlings” concept was created by designer Shana Muldoon Zappa and her husband, Ahmet Zappa, son of late musician Frank Zappa, and was inspired by their daughter. “Our intention with Star Darlings has always been to empower every girl – no matter where she was born or what she looks like – to understand that she has what it takes within, to make her own wishes come true…through the unstoppable energy created by positive thinking, taking action and believing in yourself,” the Zappas said. Just like real girls, each Star Darling has her own wish that she pursues with full force and determination—and the help of her friends. These shared journeys and experiences provide exceptionally positive examples to inspire tweens to follow their dreams. Disney “Star Darlings” offers an innovative and unparalleled lifestyle experience that encourages tweens to harness the power of their individuality, highlights the power of making positive choices, and shows that each and every girl has it within herself to make anything possible.
