Plot

Miley (Miley Cyrus) is becoming overwhelmed with Hannah's popularity. Robbie Ray (Billy Ray Cyrus) manages to persuade Miley to travel to her hometown, Crowley Corners, Tennessee, to reflect about the things that really matter in her life.

Miley chooses to go as her alter ego, Hannah Montana, to Lilly's (Emily Osment) Sweet Sixteen which causes much mayhem. Both Miley and Robbie Ray have love interests; Miley's old friend Travis Brody (Lucas Till) plays Miley's love interest. Robbie's love interest is Melora Hardin. Also, there is Mr. Granger (Peter Gunn), a local, who knows and tries to reveal Miley's secret.

Hannah sings a song, "Let's Get Crazy", accompanied by Steve Rushton on the guitar, at Lilly's sweet sixteen.[9][10]

  • There is a scene filmed at the carnival where Peter Gunn's character is looking for the real Hannah in the crowd and he finds Jackson selling 'Hannah wigs'. Everyone around him looks like Hannah from the back so he is turning them all around looking for the real one. [11]

E! Online reported there was an accident on the set during the filming on June 3, 2008. A huge wind blew a projection screen into a Ferris wheel full of passengers, whom were extras for the movie. Fortunately, there was no serious injury. “When the wind caught it, all the cables were loose. It started [flying],” extra Brenda Blackford told Nashville station WKRN-TV. “I was watching to see which corner of it was gonna hit the Ferris wheel, because it was unavoidable.” Miley Cyrus and her father Billy Ray were not on the set when the accident happened. Disney stated: “During a break in the filming of Hannah Montana: The Movie, a minor accident occurred involving a piece of production equipment Fortunately, there were only a few minor injuries. Medical personnel have treated the extras and crew involved. None of the cast was on the set. Filming has resumed.” [18]
