Under Wraps Team Explains How Diversity and Technology Make the Disney Channel Remake Stand Out

Disney Channel’s original 1997 version of Under Wraps had many of the elements family comedies need: three cute and precocious leads, a fun-loving mummy and plenty of funny moments. There was just one thing missing — diversity. All of the movie’s leading characters were white. But the revamped Under Wraps, which premieres tonight at 8/7c on the Disney Channel, shakes all of that up with an inclusive cast that incorporates more people of color. Two roles that were initially played by men are now filled by women, and one lead has same-sex parents. “Diversity is essential,” director Alex Zamm tells TVLine. “It...

Under Wraps: Karin Konoval Previews Evil New Disney Channel Role and How It Compares to Her X-Files Turns

Although Karin Konoval has co-starred in family fare such as Netflix’s The Baby-Sitter’s Club and a live-action take on Woody Woodpecker, she’s a more recognizable actress among adults than kids. That could change when Konoval plays a dastardly and criminally inclined art collector named Ingrid Ravensworth in the new Disney Channel movie Under Wraps. A remake of the beloved 1997 mummy-buddy movie of the same name, it premieres Friday at 8/7c. (Check out the exclusive clip above.) In the 1997 original, Lance Brady played the wicked art enthusiast who wants to own Harold, the lovable and reanimated mummy. Konoval says she’s more than...

Christy Carlson Romano Is Not Afraid Of The Past

The Disney Channel star turned YouTube nostalgist is happy to open up about her child star days—and why she’s not in touch with Shia LaBeouf. Christy Carlson Romano, ever the multi-tasker, is getting her hair done when she answers my phone call. “Austin Life magazine is asking me to be on their cover for the holidays, so I’m very excited,” she says. What’s landed Romano on the cover of a magazine has little to do with any of the iconic characters she brought to life as a Disney Channel star in the early aughts—like Ren Stevens, Shia Labeouf’s overachieving older sister on the series Even Stevens, or Cadet Captain Jennifer Stone in the Disney Channel original movie Cadet Kelly opposite Hilary Duff, or voicing the titular character on the animated series Kim Possible. No, what’s brought Romano back into the public eye after years out of the spotlight has been her YouTube channel.
