A brand new original movie from Disney Channel is out on June 15, 2012. Let It Shine is a 2012 musical television film set to premiere on Disney Channel. It features an ensemble cast of Tyler James Williams, Coco Jones, Trevor Jackson and Brandon Mychal Smith. The film follows a shy, talented musician who pens romantic hip-hop verses only to stand idly by as they're delivered to the girl of his dreams by a proxy, his best friend. The film was directed by Paul Hoen and written by Eric Daniel and Don D. Scott. The Disney Channel Original Movie is slated to premiere on June 15, 2012. The first look at it was seen during Disney's Whodunit Weekend on April 13, 2012.
The Let It Shine Disney movie stars Tyler James Williams as Cyrus DeBarge, Coco Jones as Roxanne "Roxie" Andrews, Trevor Jackson as Kris McDuffy, Brandon Mychal Smith as Lord of Da Bling, Nicole Sullivan as Lyla, Courtney B. Vance as Jacob DeBarge
Dawnn Lewis as Gail DeBarge and many more. The story of Let It Shine is loosely based on the Cyrano de Bergerac, a play written in 1897 by Edmond Rostand.
The new video is out and the film is on its way. But what should you really expect? Well it has a great mix of Hollywood Records’ Recording Artist Coco Jones’ beautiful and soulful voice, and Tyler James Williams from “Everybody Hates Chris” surprisingly good rapping skills. He is actually better than most rappers out today.
The story unfolds in Atlanta, Georgia, as Cyrus DeBarge and his best friend Kris McDuffy reunite with their childhood friend, teenage singing sensation Roxanne "Roxie" Andrews, whose music label is sponsoring a songwriting contest at a teen club. Cyrus, who writes music under the name "Truth," crafts a heartfelt and contest-winning rhyme about Roxie but to his dismay, his work is mistakenly attributed to Kris. Lacking the confidence to step forward, Cyrus stands by while Kris not only takes credit for the lyrics but ultimately begins to win Roxanne's heart too. Now, it's up to the true poet to overcome self-doubt, seize the opportunity to reveal his authentic self and pursue his dreams. All the while, Cyrus must convince his preacher father that hip-hop music can have a positive message.
Taking the hip-hop musical to a whole new level, Walt Disney Records is set to release the soundtrack to the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie "Let It Shine."
