For those who spent their formative years glued to the Disney Channel, the phrase “…and you’re watching Disney Channel!” conjures vivid flashbacks of iconic moments. Stars like Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and the Jonas Brothers led the charge, creating a treasure trove of pop hits, birthed from the golden Disney era of the 2000s.

Fast forward two decades, and the magic continues with Disney Music Group’s nostalgic campaign celebrating the 2000s. This campaign pays homage to an era that saw the rise of many beloved pop stars and was laden with hits that defined the soundtrack of millennial childhoods. Who could forget Miley’s dual life as Hannah Montana, or the Jonas Brothers rocking out in Camp Rock? And let’s not overlook Hilary Duff’s transformative debut album, Metamorphosis, which turned the “Lizzie McGuire” star into a bona fide pop sensation.

Disney Music Group’s celebration kick-started with a special event at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre featuring screenings of 2008’s “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert” and 2009’s “Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience.” These iconic movies showcased the electrifying performances that once dominated TV screens and concert stages, reminding us of the pure joy these Disney stars brought.

But this era of pop wasn’t solely led by the familiar faces. Jesse McCartney also joined the fray, transitioning from a band member in Dream Street to a solo star with his hit “Beautiful Soul.” McCartney attributes his success, in part, to the unique marketing synergy Disney Channel excelled at—promoting music videos and TV appearances that made these stars household names.

To keep the nostalgia alive, Disney has planned special vinyl releases and social media activations, all leading up to the D23 Expo. Fans can relive those blissful days when the Disney Channel ruled the airwaves and cemented its stars in pop culture history.
