Great news for all Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus) and Jake Ryan (Cody Linley) fans out there. Hannah Montana: Pop Star Profile, a DVD compilation that highlights the on-screen couple, was released on June 26. The DVD contains four episodes, all documenting the blossoming relationship between Miley Stewart- aka Hannah Montana– and Jake. A concert performance of “Nobody’s Perfect” and a short featurette are also included in the DVD.
The first episode, “The New Kid in School,” shows Jake arriving at Seaview Middle School as the new student. Being the star of Zombie High! makes him an instant hit among the ladies, with the exception of Miley. Aside from Miley Cyrus and Cody Linley, Jason Earles, who plays Jackson Stewart, also makes an appearance in the episode.
In “More Than a Zombie to Me,” Miley becomes the envy of the female student body when Jake asks her to the school dance. She surprises them even more by telling him, “No!” Unfortunately, she then finds out that as Hannah Montana, she must play Jake’s leading lady in Zombie High! However, her feelings gradually change, but Jake decides to take Miley’s best friend, Lilly (Emily Osment), to the dance instead.
The next episode, “Good Golly, Miss Dolly,” features country artist Dolly Parton as a guest star. She videotapes Miley singing a song for Jake, but the tape accidentally ends up in his hands. Dolly helps Miley sneak into the editing room to retrieve the tape. Miley decides to tell Jake about her real feelings but before she can, Jake introduces her to Rachel, his girlfriend.
It is in the fourth episode that Miley and Jake finally confess their feelings for each other, but the moments leading up to it are not without their ups and downs. “People Who Use People,” shows Miley hanging out with a boy named Willis in order to make Jake jealous.
The short featurette, entitled The Real Miley Cyrus, contains brief behind-the-scenes footage and commentaries from other cast members, including her country artist father, Billy Ray Cyrus. According to Disney Shopping, the DVD has been priced at $14.99.
