Hilary Duff Re-Created The Iconic Disney Channel Wand Promo And It's Everything

"They made us do it like 900 times, and I think I lost all personality at that point. Plus, I was, like, a pubescent teen — I was like, "What are they making me do, this is invisible!"

We can all agree on one thing: Disney Channel's wand promos were the cornerstone of our youth. You know the ones, where your favorite Disney stars introduced themselves while magically making mouse ears with a wand.

Which we all re-created in the mirror with a hairbrush back in '02.

And then out of nowhere we were blessed with a wonderful '00s time capsule: Some unearthed behind-the-scenes footage from the making of those promos was revealed. And it was, in one word, i c o n i c.

Her face when they said "one more" @ 1:21💀

Especially the footage featuring Hilary Duff — who was slightly confused about the whole situation.


It’s so ridiculous. It’s so funny though. So we had to do the thing and then they put it in CGI, the mouse ears. And then they made us do it like 900 times. And I think I like lost all personality at that point. Plus, I was, like, a pubescent teen — I was like, What are they making me do, this is invisible! But Raven-Symoné was nailing it!


[I had been doing it] all day! I think I had shot the beginning of Lizzie McGuire with all those bouncy balls, and I was like, What is this-last minute thing? It’s so good. It’s, like, Hilary with a lot of attitude. Like, What are they making me do? But now I’m happy to do it, because that was hilarious.
