Disney Channel movie featuring Brie Larson that you probably haven’t heard of!


Brie Larson, the Oscar-winning actress, has become a household name in recent years, particularly for her portrayal of Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, what some may not realize is that Larson’s professional ties with Disney trace back a remarkable 20 years.

Indeed, Larson began her career as a child star, a fact that might be overlooked by modern movie and TV enthusiasts. In the early-to-mid 2000s, she made a notable mark in TV shows like the WB sitcom “Raising Dad.” Additionally, she briefly explored a musical career, even releasing an album in 2005 titled “Finally Out of P.E..” During this period, Larson’s journey as a child actor began, laying the foundation for a renaissance in her adult years. Her subsequent decade saw her achieve even greater success, including a breakout role in the beloved cult classic “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” and winning an Academy Award for her performance in 2015’s “Room,” among other noteworthy accomplishments.

Larson’s debut with Disney was unveiled when she landed a leading role in the Disney Channel original movie “Right on Track,” approximately five years after her television debut in a sketch on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” in 1998. Released in 2003 and based on a true story, the film co-starred Beverley Mitchell. Larson and Mitchell portrayed sisters, Courtney and Erica Enders, who seized the opportunity to participate in junior drag racing, ultimately dominating the track in a male-dominated motorsport.


Fast forward 20 years, Larson continues to take on roles centered around women defying societal norms. Her latest series with similar themes, “Lessons in Chemistry,” has garnered popularity on the streaming service Apple TV Plus. For those interested in witnessing the early spark of talent in Larson’s career, “Right on Track” is available for streaming on Disney Plus.
