‘CHEETAH GIRLS 2’ Plot
In the first Cheetah Girls film, the quartet makes a name for themselves singing to a dog stuck in a street obstruction on the nighttime news. Cheetah Girls 2 is the second installment in the trilogy, taking the hopeful stars to a music festival in Barcelona.
Galleria, Chanel, Aquanetta, and Dorinda are a group of friends from Manhattan. During a sleepover one night, Chanel reveals that her mother is planning to visit Barcelona to see her boyfriend, Luc (Abel Folk). The girls make a wish on a shooting star that they all can go to Barcelona together.
As an answer to their wish, a magazine blows open to a page advertising a music festival in Barcelona. The next thing you know, The Cheetah Girls are in Spain. They audition for the festival and earn a spot. At a nightclub, they meet the Spanish pop star, Marisol (Latin pop singer Belinda) whose mother is scheming to destroy The Cheetah Girls.
While in Spain, everyone except for Galleria gets involved in everything except for preparing for the competition. Galleria can[‘t take it after a while and says she’s going to Paris then back to Manhattan. At the last minute, the girls show up at the train station and sing to Galleria to get her to stay. And she says she will. Only if the girls start to really focus on winning the competition.
Romance, proposals, trickery, and sabotage ensue as the girls prepare for the festival they hope will launch them into superstardom.
‘CHEETAH GIRLS 2’ Cast
In film and real life, The Cheetah Girls were best friends in the same girl group. This unlikely scenario is something that can only be made by Disney.
RAVEN SYMONE as GALLERIA “BUBBLES” GARIBALDI
Galleria is the lead Cheetah Girl, a driven, focused star-hopeful who comes from a privileged background and has parents who wish she were more focused on their ambitions. Raven-Symone plays the role perfectly on screen and in real life as a member of The Cheetah Girls. This is the last film in the series starring the actress.
ADRIENNE BAILON as CHANEL “CHUCHI” SIMMONS
Chanel plays the second to Galleria as her fashion-focused best friend, and oldest companion. She’s constantly trying to keep up with her mother, who is again flying off to visit yet another suitor in some great-sounding country. Bailon got her start in the church choir and joined Cheetah Girls. The film and the girl group.
KIELY WILLIAMS as AQUANETTA “AQUA” WALKER
Aqua has few moments when her story is told in the film, but she does add power to the soundtrack and the performance aspect of the Barcelona tour. A member of The Cheetah Girls and 3LW (another real-life girl group made up of a few of these cast members), Williams added her talents to the cast of vocal artists during the soundtrack production.
SABRINA BRYAN as DORINDA “DO” THOMAS
Dorinda is a foster child with ten other foster siblings and a night job as a janitor in the building where she lives. Bryan played opposite the star, making the four leads more relatable in the Cheetah Girls movies.
