The dichotomy of Hannah Montana continues – but not forever – as Miley Stewart rues her double life as Miley – Normal Girl – versus her a.k.a., World Famous Rock Star, Hannah Montana.
This series however, is about more than a blond wig, or comedy or funny plots. Disney’s magic unfolds in the themes that make Disney a powerful and magical component of our cultural mores today, and Disney’s themes always make a point. Miley Stewart, Robby, Jackson, Lilly represents a family that cares deeply about each other, and yet allows the space that families require to grow and thrive. Miley’s dad, Robby, played by Billy Ray Cyrus, is laid back and staid, making sure that Miley gets the help she needs without becoming an overbearing or controlling dad. Jackson, Miley’s older brother, is also close to Miley. Miley’s BFF, Lilly Truscott (Emily Osment) knows her secret, along with the rest of the family (Lilly lives with them) and can be trusted to keep it. Lilly wears a purple wig to Hannah concerts and calls herself Lola. It is in the trust and camaraderie of this series and the characters within it that Disney shines. They are funny, caring, yet ambitious people, and yet hold onto their need to be entirely who they are: and Miley/Hannah represents the push pull that we all feel between career, fame, fortune and maintaining our own integrity within the unit of friends and family. Miley’s dilemma is our dilemma and touches us as this teenage girl tries to find the truth within her two parts.
Does Miley decide to heave the blonde wig in the Big Tent? Join the circus, and find out!
