There will be 4 episodes showcasing 22-year-old Jessie Prescott’s whirlwind romance, and then seeing her accept her boyfriend’s proposal of marriage.
It’s the first time a lead character for Disney Channel has become engaged, said Adam Bonnett, Disney Channel executive vice president of original programming.
Mr. Bonnet also shared:
Jessie is an adult, and we felt we could tackle this in a way that still feels appropriate for our audience.
The way we deal with this romance is very pure Disney fairy tale.
25-year-old Brooks played by Pierson Fode is the new man in Jessie’s life, and we will see them enjoying picnics in Central Park and on movie dates, etc.
Debby, who is in a relationship with her boyfriend of a year, Twenty One Pilots musician Josh Dun, reveals that she is not planning on marriage herself at this moment and is focusing on her career.
She did share her feeling about making such a commitment:
It’s not about the dress, it’s not about the wedding. It’s about the marriage. That’s something we lose sight of when we’re so young and all we want to do is dress up and play fairy tale.
This sounds so great!!! Are you looking forward to it? Share your thoughts with us in the comment section below.
