The Andi Mack second trailer that Disney has released on YouTube has revealed the secret that the rare few that haven’t watch the two episodes online will find as a surprise. Stop reading, watching if you do not want to be spoiled.
So the big reveal is out early in the show, this is not something we are going to be building up to, but it is the catalyst for the central theme of the show. Bex is not Andi’s sister, she is actually Andi’s mother! Ok, now what, well that is what we are going to find out. Along with this big reveal we end up with a bunch of other questions. Why did Bex go away? Was is her mother’s idea or was Bex just too young to take care of Andi? Did she think it would be better for Bex and/or Andi for her to leave. Who is the father? Will we ever see him? Is Bex ready to be a mother now? Can she get along with her own mother who has raised Andi for the past 13 years? So while we may have answered one major question, it has lead us to a bunch of other questions that are going to need to be answered over the course of the show and we are sure that Andi is going to need to lean on her friends for some help.
Overall, I loved the first two episodes and I am really looking forward to seeing what the rest of the season has to bring. With such a big reveal right in the beginning the show has to keep itself interesting and it can do that by making sure we get a lot of Andi and Bex moments and seeing how they both navigate this new territory. Andi is going to have a lot to deal with along with just becoming a new teenager with her new relationship status with Bex. This is what makes the show so interesting, taking a notoriously difficult time in a child’s life, turning 13, and then adding the fact that everything you thought before about where you came from is turned upside down. Disney has a great show to be able to help kids through some difficult times and hopefully we get to see some of that to show other teenagers that they are not alone in feeling confused.
Cool side note – We have a pre Andi Mack interview with Joshua Rush that you can check out, along with the one where he talks about what makes Andi Mack different. So do you think this show is going to be a success and usher in a new type of Disney Channel shows going forward? After seeing the first two episodes I am personally on the Andi Mack bandwagon and think this is a great thing for Disney Channel. Looking forward to continuing to watch this show and also to now see what new shows Disney is going to bring that may be “different.”
Get ready to tune in for the official Andi Mack premiere on the Disney Channel television debut April 7 at 8:30 ET, but if you have some time check it out on the Disney App now.
