Miley Cyrus is returning “home” to the Disney Channel that ‘made’ her!
The actress and singer, who became a household name after playing the superstar Hannah Montana (a perky teenage performer who tried to combine her incognito stardom with a regular life as Miley Stewart the high school student), is finally getting involved with Disney again after breaking her Disney Channel bonds several years ago and adopting a much edgier, more risque personal brand.
Cyrus has been the talk of the town again lately due to her record-breaking new album and one particularly popular song, but now she is teaming up with Disney for a special Disney+ event that coincides with her own independent performances.
Miley Cyrus has performed Backyard Sessions many times in the past (since 2012) to promote her music; these Backyard Sessions are basically outdoor performances that are meant to have a casual feel and serve as an homage to Cyrus’s fans.
Apparently, Disney+ wanted in on the action — and now Miley has gone back to her Disney roots for a Disney+ Original special that will air very soon!
On March 10 (at 1pm e.t or 10am pt.), “Miley Cyrus – Endless Summer Vacation (#BackyardSessions)” will air on Disney+.
Welcome home. 🌸

“Welcome home,” Disney tweeted with the announcement, adding a pink flower emoji as an obvious reference to Miley’s record-breaking new hit song, “Flowers”.
The song from the Endless Summer Vacation album has appeared everywhere, with celebrities like Kevin Bacon even offering their own iterations of the song.
I usually try to buy @kyrasedgwick the flowers, but looks like she’s got that covered. Thanks @MileyCyrus 💐 And thanks @AngieAlaska for the screaming goat. #GoatSongs pic.twitter.com/p4R8tSVWMO

According to Variety, “Cyrus serves as executive producer on the music-focused special from Disney Branded Television, which will feature songs from the album” — including “Flowers”! Performer Rufus Wainwright will also make an appearance.
