Isabella Crovetti has been a favorite of ours from her casting on Vampirina and now we have gotten the opportunity to talk to her about the upcoming Magic Camp that will be premiering on Disney Plus soon.
Isabella Crovetti can be seen next starring alongside Jeffrey Tambor and Adam DeVine in Disney +’s Magic Camp, set to release in July. She is best known for voicing Vampirina (aka “Vee”) in Disney Junior’s Vampirina and voices “Shine” in Nickelodeon’s Shimmer and Shine. She recently wrapped filming the dramedy Rita, opposite Lena Headey for Showtime. You can find Isabella competing in the Junior Olympics for cross country, playing guitar, baking, or participating in several musicals throughout the year.
BSCKids: Tell us about your role on the Disney + movie Magic Camp?
Isabella Crovetti: The character I play is Ruth. She is a girl that goes to camp to learn magic but she has one thing that she wants most of all. I can’t tell you what that is but it is evident right when you first meet Ruth. Ruth’s intensity causes friction with some of her bunkmates which leads to a lot of funny moments.
Do you have anything in common with your character?
Ruth loves animals and is pretty intense about fulfilling her need to be around them. I love animals but not to that intensity lol. Ruth speaks her mind and is not shy. She likes what she likes and makes no bones about it. I am a little shyer and less outspoken than Ruth. She was a fun character to play.
How did you get the role?
I worked on a show for ABC called the Neighbors and also I voiced Vampirina on the Disney show Vampirina, so casting already knew me but I had to audition just like everyone else. I knew Ruth and brought my spin on how I envisioned Ruth to be.
Can you tell us any funny behind the scenes stories while filming?
Well, I can tell you something people might not know. It is that we all did real magic in the movie. At the end of the movie, I did an actual magic act with no special effects. What is also very cool is that we did our acts all in one take. It is the coolest thing ever.
Do you know how to do any magic tricks? Did you learn any while filming?
Oh my goodness! I know a ton of magic now. One of the coolest things about filming Magic Camp was before we started shooting we all got to go to magic school for several weeks. We were taught magic by some of the top magicians in the world.
What is your favorite Disney DCOM of all time?
When I was little my friends and I used to love to watch Lemonade Mouth.
Why should everyone tune in to watch Magic Camp?
It is such a great movie for the entire family. It is so funny and heartwarming. The audience is rooting for the underdogs and also watching some amazing Magic!
Do you have anything else coming up that you can tell us about?
Yes, I have a film called Summer of Snakes, this is a very different piece than Magic Camp which is a comedy. It’s a coming of age drama. I am also in an upcoming show for Showtime.
Special thanks to Isabella Crovetti for taking the time to talk about all her upcoming work!
