Adventures in Babysitting -- which also happens to be the 100th Disney Channel Original Movie! -- is inspired by the hugely popular 1980s film of the same name and is guaranteed to tug on all your nostalgia-loving heartstrings.

To help get you pumped for this Friday's premiere, only ET has the exclusive scoop straight from stars Sabrina Carpenter and Sofia Carson about how the new Adventures in Babysitting is going to please both old and new fans.

"I hope that [fans] can watch the original movie with their parents," Carpenter gushed to ET at the Adventures in Babysitting junket last month. "I think it would be incredible for this new generation to see what the old classic was like and how we're telling a re-imagined version of that." The Girl Meets World star added that she is "honored" to be a part of the newest Adventures in Babysitting flick because she's a "big fan" of the original 1987 comedy.

In our first-look featurette above, Carson revealed that the DCOM will have plenty of hidden Easter eggs that will pay homage to the cult classic. "Fans of the original movie are going to love the fact that there are little nods to the original," Carson shared. "Jenny's coat is a camel [colored] coat like Elisabeth Shue's coat as well."

But if you think Adventures in Babysitting is just going to be a copycat of the original, Carson warns you to think again. "This version of Adventures in Babysitting is unique because instead of one babysitter, there are two rival babysitters: Jenny and Lola," the Descendants star explained. "They're polar opposites in every sense of the word, which leads them to this incredible adventure."

Adventures in Babysitting premieres Friday, June 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel.
