Disney has released details and a brand new trailer for the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie “Spin”, which “Spin” follows Rhea (Avantika), a relatable Indian American teen who discovers her passion for creating DJ mixes that blend the rich textures of her South Asian culture and the world around her. Her life revolves around her eclectic group of friends, Molly, Watson and Ginger, her after-school coding club, her family’s Indian restaurant, and her tightknit, multigenerational family, which includes her father Arvind, younger brother Rohan and her grandmother Asha. Everything changes when she falls for aspiring DJ Max, and her long-lost fervor for music is reignited. Rhea discovers that she has a natural gift for creating beats and producing music but must find the courage to follow her true inner talent.
Check out the trailer below:
Avantika leads an international ensemble of talented veteran and burgeoning young actors, including Bollywood renowned Abhay Deol (“Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”) as Arvind, UK comedienne/actress Meera Syal (“Yesterday”) as Asha, Aryan Simhadri (“Adventures in Wonder Park”) as Rohan, Michael Bishop (“Grace Beside Me”) as DJ Max, Anna Cathcart (“Descendants” franchise) as Molly, Jahbril Cook (“A Week Away”) as Watson and Kerri Medders (“Alexa & Katie”) as Ginger.
“Spin” is directed by Manjari Makijany (“Skater Girl”) and executive produced by Zanne Devine (“Easy A,” “I, Tonya”), with writing by Carley Steiner (“Play Date”) and Josh Cagan (“The Duff”).
“Spin” will debut on the Disney Channel and the DisneyNOW app on Friday 13th August at 8:00 p.m. EDT/PDT. No Disney+ release date has been confirmed yet. Internationally this film will debut on Disney+ at some point in the future, since the Disney Channel isn’t operating in many countries like Australia and the United Kingdom, but it’s usually after it has aired on the Disney Channel in the US.
