Austin and Ally CastAfter the incredible success of Jessie, we think Disney Channel might have another hit on its hands. Austin & Ally centers around four teenagers — played by Ross Lynch, Laura Marano, Calum Worthy and Raini Rodriguez — who pretty much have (or plan on having) the careers we’ve always dreamed of: singer, songwriter, fashionista and director. And they’re only supposed to be 15 year-olds!

While it’s slightly unbelievable, we still think we should introduce you to the next big stars to come to Disney…

Ross Lynch (Austin)
Ross (second from the left) is part of a teen band called R5 along with his four siblings:
Riker, Rocky, Ryland, and Rydel. Hence the name, R5.

Laura Marano (Ally)
If you think you recognize her last name, it’s probably ’cause her big sis,
Vanessa Marano, was also one of our New Stars! She’s from Switched at Birth, ps.

Calum Worthy (Dez)
When he was 4, Calum decided he wanted to become an actor after watching Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone.

Raini Rodriguez (Trish)
Raini bounced back-and-forth between Disney Channel series & movies (The Suite LifeProm) and Nickelodeon series (True Jackson, VP). But ultimately (and obviously), she landed a full-time gig with Disney.

Ross Lynch
He’s hung out with Darren Criss IRL! Why?
Oh, just because his brother Riker’s a Warbler. NBD.

Laura Marano
Clearly, Laura has to be a smartie. She spent a majority of her last year of elementary school on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?!

Calum Worthy
Not only is Calum a talented actor, he’s also an awesome pianist.
In fact, he won the Canadian National Young Composer’s Award (piano) when he was 11!

Raini Rodriguez
 Her little bro is also kind of a big deal. It’s Rico Rodriguez! Maybe you’ve heard of him slash recognize him from Modern Family?
