It’s with a heavy heart that we report that actor Windell D. Middlebrooks has passed away at the age of 36. Windell has acted in a handful of Disney Channel and Disney XD shows including “Hannah Montana,” “The Suite Life On Deck” and “Mighty Med.”
Some of his co-stars took to Twitter to react. Debby Ryan Tweeted:
rest in peace Windell Middlebrooks, our “Kirby”. you were a light to the entire Suite Life crew and cast and we’ll forever love you.
Cole Sprouse Tweeted:
#WindellMiddlebrooks RIP, miss you already.
Jake Short posted:
Rest in Peace Windell Middlebrooks. Had the pleasure of working with him on Mighty Med. Great guy, talented actor, you will be missed.
Bradley Steven Perry added:
Rest in peace to one of my favorite characters on Mighty Med, Windell Middlebrooks. You’ll be missed, my friend.
Brenda Song Tweeted:
I am so incredibly heartbroken<3 RIP #WindellMiddlebrooks
Our thoughts go out to Windell’s family and friends during this tragic time.
A brand new animated series will air on Disney Junior in Fall 2015. The series is titled “Goldie & Bear.”
Here’s a description of the show:
Set in the Fairytale Forest, the series follows the adventures of plucky Goldie and her best friend, Bear, as they encounter well-known characters from fairytales and nursery rhymes, including Little Red Riding Hood, Humpty Dumpty and The Three Little Pigs.
This sounds a little similar to “Super Why!,” and therefore we are BEYOND excited!
Here’s the voice cast:
Natalie Lander (“The Middle”) stars as Goldie
Georgie Kidder (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) as Bear
Lesley Nicol (“Downton Abbey”) as Fairy Godmother
Debby Ryan (“Jessie”) as Thumbelina
Miles Brown and Marsai Martin (“black-ish”) appear as Jack & Jill.
We totally thought that Debby was leaving the Disney company as the fourth and final season of the Disney Channel Original Series “Jessie” just wrapped filming – so we are SO happy to find out that she is staying on with the network for “Goldie & Bear.”
Do you plan on tuning in when the series arrives?
It was just announced that the Disney Channel show “Jessie” wrapped it’s fourth and final season, but that doesn’t mean your favorite “Jessie” characters are gone for good! Peyton List, Skai Jackson and Karan Brar will be staying in their roles for a new “Jessie”-themed spin-off show on the Disney Channel!
Former Disney star Bella Thorne took to Twitter to congratulate the group, Tweeting:
congrats to my friends @PeytonList and @skaijackson on your new spin off series! u 2 are the cutest <3
While the trio of actors are staying on for more “Jessie,” both Debby Ryan and Cameron Boyce are leaving the show. Debby plans to concentrate on her music career with her band The Never Ending while Cameron has a new Disney XD show on the way titled “Gamers Guide To Pretty Much Everything.”
