Vanessa Hudgens & Aly & AJ Michalka Almost Starred In The Same Disney Channel Pilot

Vanessa Hudgens & Aly & AJ Michalka Almost Starred In The Same Disney Channel Pilot

Before there was Wizards of Waverly Place, Todd J. Greenwald actually had another pilot in the works for Disney Channel.

It would’ve starred Aly and AJ Michalka and was called The Odd Cousins.

“That didn’t go forward for a billion reasons why pilots don’t go forward, but they wanted to keep me around,” he shared with IBT about the lost pilot we’ll never see.

What was it about? “It was about two cousins, one was a sunny, bright, cheery Southern California cheerleader, and then her emo Portland, northwestern grungy cousin got into trouble and was sent to live in sunny SoCal with her cousin. They both found a way to live together and it would’ve been one of those fish-out-of-water family shows.”

When the pilot wasn’t greenlit, but Disney wanted another go at it, this time with Vanessa Hudgens.

“When the Michalka sisters couldn’t be in it, Disney still wanted to do it,” Todd added, revealing it didn’t work out again — because of how big High School Musical had gotten.

Who else is wanting to see these lost pilots with us? We need footage!
