“I am fully committed to ’Hannah Montana,’ ” she told People magazine Monday (September 22). “It’s what gave me this amazing opportunity to reach out to so many people. I couldn’t do it alone. We have an amazing cast that is so supportive, including my dad who has been there for me every step of the way.”
Meanwhile, a Disney rep said that any talk of on-set battles is “just gossip.” Miley added: “I’m really excited about our new season. We are making great new episodes that I can’t wait for our fans to see.”
In July, Miley got everyone talking when she hinted at the possibility that season three of “Hannah Montana” could be the last . “We’re thinking this is our last season,” she told E! News at the time.
“I just think we did a lot of episodes,” she said. “We basically did two seasons in one last year. Usually people would do one season [and] that would be, like, 16 episodes, and we did almost 30 episodes! … It seems like it’s been on, like, longer.”
A representative for Disney was quick to respond to the news, saying, “Miley said it best when she said she’s delighted to be part of the Disney family. … We look forward to the ’Hannah Montana’ feature film coming to a theater near you in spring 2009.”
