On June 3, the first 10 minutes of the movie will be available on the Disney Channel and Freeform apps, plus on Disney Channel's Facebook and YouTube channel.

"Babysitting" marks the 100th Disney Channel Original Movie, and will be preceded by a major movie marathon in the days ahead. (More on that programming event here.) Inspired by the 1980's film, the new version is a re-imagined tale stars Sabrina Carpenter ("Girl Meets World") and Sofia Carson ("Descendants").

The original film was set in Oak Park and Chicago. A Disney spokeswoman said the revival isn't set in any particular city.

Premiering the same night as "Babysitting" is Disney Channel's newest series "Bizaardvark," which revolves around two 13-year-old best friends, Paige and Frankie (played by Olivia Rodrigo and Madison Hu) who write funny songs and create music videos for their online channel, titled Bizaardvark, with dreams of becoming online stars. Vine star Jake Paul, Ethan Wacker and DeVore Ledridge also star in the series.

"Bizaardvark" has lined up a roster of fan-favorite guest stars, and will stage a moment with the Paul brothers. (Jake stars on the show and Logan will guest star -- meanwhile, Logan has had a recurring role on Freeform's "Stitchers," which is also owned by Disney.)
