Raven Symone & 'Cheetah Girls' Cast Look Back On Original Film 15 Years Later

We can hardly believe that it’s actually been 15 years since Cheetah Girls made its’ debut on Disney Channel!

Stars Adrienne Bailon, Sabrina Bryan, Raven-Symone and Kiely Williams all spoke with People to celebrate the film, remember the friendships that were born, and the importance of the movie.

“It means the world to me,” Raven shared about the impact the movie has had on fans and all the DCOMs that have since been made. “It means that I chose a project that stood the test of time. That was the most ego-centric sentence ever said, I guess!”

She adds, “Just to know that generations outside of the original generation have embraced us — what we did and what Cheetah Girls stood for — and they are down for girl power. That brings joy. It was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be a part of something that’s had a following for so many years and I embrace that.”

“I thank the supporters and people who loved it because we could not have done it without them. It could have been a totally different cast and I would not have been involved and I would have been so jealous, but it was us!”

Raven also opened up about her instant connection with Belinda, who starred in Cheetah Girls 2; and Sabrina and Kiely revealed that their friendship that started on set is still going strong today.

“Sabrina and I are still incredibly close, in fact, she was maid of honor at my wedding and this fall, I will be by her side as her matron of honor,” Kiely revealed.
