Bella ThorneBella Thorne certainly isn't having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year. Though her Disney series "Shake It Up!" is ending its three-season run, the 16-year-old actress is landing film role after film role. The latest, per The Hollywood Reporter, is a part in the big-screen adaptation of Judith Viorst's classic picture book "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day."

The film stars Ed Oxenbould as the titular character, plus Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner as his parents. Bella will play the role of Alexander's brother's girlfriend.

Shake It UpBummer summer! News just broke that Disney’s “Shake It Up!” will be ending after a three-season run on the Mouse House. The final season of the show, which stars Disney’s latest breakout tween queens Bella Thorne and Zendaya, will air this summer and continue through the fall.

An air date for the final episode has not been announced yet, according to The Hollywood Reporter. As the “Shake It Up!” chapter closes, the network is already lining up projects to fill the void, including the highly anticipated “Boy Meets World” spin-off “Girl Meets World” and another new show, “I Didn't Do It.”

Even with the show wrapping up its 78-episode run on the network, both stars are already lining up projects.

Bella ThorneBecause every young actress is required by law to take at least one role in which she's hunted through a dark house by ghosts, beasts and/or deranged strangers wearing plastic masks, it should come as no surprise that Bella Thorne has added one such thriller to her roster of projects: According to Deadline, the teen star is set to get scream-queeny in a home invasion flick titled, appropriately, "Home Invasion."

The movie will be a new entry into the ever-popular oeuvre that already includes fave horror films like "The Strangers" and "Them", and features Bella as the daughter of a family imprisoned in their home by unknown assailants, who "play a life-and-death game in which the mysterious rules become clear as the night unfolds."

Bella ThorneWe're beginning to think Bella Thorne better look into hiring a personal assistant (if she doesn't have one already), because girl keeps racking up the responsibilities. Just days after it was announced the Disney star had inked a multi-book deal with Random House comes news (via Deadline) that Bella has landed a role in the film "Blended."

The romantic comedy re-teams Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore as two single parents who end up on a nightmare blind date at a family resort—with their kids in tow. Bella will play Adam's daughter. The film is due in theaters May 23, 2014.

Bella ThorneThe literati radar is blowing up today with all kinds of exciting book news, and here's the latest bit: Bella Thorne, the 15 year-old superstar—who's already a familiar face on the Hollywood scene as a singer, dancer, actress, and model—is sinking her teeth into a slightly more cerebral piece of the entertainment biz, having officially made a multi-book deal with Random House for publication in 2014! Bella will co-write "Autumn Falls," a series of YA novels about a 14 year-old girl whose life changes after a chance encounter with magic.

Without any other details available, it's not clear yet whether this is going to be witchy-romantic magic à la "Beautiful Creatures," or fantastical epic magic à la "Harry Potter," or something else entirely (although we would like to point out that it's never too early to start hoping for a "Teen Witch"-style magical freestyle rap-off!).

"Shake It Up!" star Bella Thorne has long been ready for her close-up, but now she’s also ready to get her groove on. The Disney actress is hard at work on her debut disc, and she recently dished about her forthcoming album to MTV News.

“Well, I think what fans can expect is [for it] just to be very different from anyone, because I don’t like to be one of those artists where you can be like ‘Oh yeah, I know them from that song,'" the Disney starlet explained, clearly taking notes from other one-time Mouse House princesses like Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato. Or, even Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera for that matter, all of whom have gone on to have successful music careers. “All my songs are very different from each other. So I don’t want to be known as only one genre.”

The Oscars might present a major sartorial challenge for Hollywood's young stars—what to wear for an event where everyone and anyone is ready to pounce on your slightest fashion flaw?—but they're nothing compared to the conundrum of dressing for the Kids' Choice Awards: where, in addition to looking pretty and put-together on the red carpet, you must be prepared for the eventuality of getting slimed with grody green goop. Which is why this week's Style Superstar featurees get kudos not just for cuteness, but courage, as they braved the one and only awards show where things can get truly messy and an adorable outfit is at high risk for ruination.

This week's winner? It's Bella Thorne, who struck the perfect balance of fresh, fun and fancy in her two-piece metallic shell and miniskirt. A lot of stars arrive at the Kids' Choice Awards overdressed, but this outfit is exactly right: a classic silver sheath, some edgy pops of color (a green beaded necklace and pink patent heels) and free-flowing hair. Bella struck just the right mood for the year's most whimsical awards event! And she didn't get slimed, either. Bonus.

We doubt you need it—but just in case you do—here's your reminder, courtesy of "Shake It Up!" starlet Bella Thorne, that "Pretty Little Liars" is on tonight. Who knew the Disney darling was such a fan?

Though we know Bella is busy with her own series, how cool would it be if she made a guest appearance on the ABC Family show? Maybe she could play Lucy Hale's singing-and-dancing cousin who's visiting Rosewood?

Can it be? Is Christmas really over? Though the calendar reads "December 26," you don't need to pack up the lights and put the figgy pudding on ice just yet. After all, we have yet to check in with Hollywood's hottest to see how they spent the holidays! From volunteering to trimming the tree to Santa Claus role-playing (yes, you read that right), our favorite stars embraced the Christmas spirit with rosy cheeks and hearts full of love. So pour yourself another helping of eggnog and check out our run-down (or else you might just find a marauding band of reindeer at your door...) Merry Christmas!

There are few things that get our bells ringing quite like celebrating the season with friends, and that's just what "High School Musical" co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale did. Ashley took to Instagram to share a pic of the Disney duo decking the halls on Christmas Eve. "Santa's Lil helpers. Decorating with @vanessahudgens and Austin #christmas #besties," she wrote. We're guessing there weren't many Troy Bolton ornaments to be found...
