"Camp Rock" was released on Disney Channel in June 2008, starring Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas.
Since the film came out, the two actors have gone on to pursue other roles and release more music.
Lovato is a two-time Grammy nominee and Jonas is part of the popular band called the Jonas Brothers, which made a career comeback in 2019 following a six-year hiatus.
The musical film, which took place at a fictional summer camp, starred Demi Lovato as Mitchie Torres, a role that earned the actress her big break in Hollywood. It also starred Joe Jonas as Shane Gray, a pop star and her love interest.
To date, "Camp Rock" is the third most-watched DCOM, following "High School Musical 2" and "Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie." The success of "Camp Rock" also led to a 2010 sequel titled "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam."
Here's what the stars of "Camp Rock" have been up to since the movie's release.
Demi Lovato starred as Mitchie Torres, a shy singer-songwriter.
She lied about her mom's job so that she could fit in with the kids at Camp Rock and be popular.
Lovato continues to act and sing, and paid homage to her Disney Channel roots in her 2020 music video for "I Love Me."
After "Camp Rock," Lovato continued to star on shows and films for Disney Channel.
She starred on the short-lived sitcom "Sonny With a Chance" as the titular character and reunited with "Barney & Friends" costar Selena Gomez (then known for her role on "Wizards of Waverly Place") for the 2009 DCOM "Princess Protection Program." She also returned as Mitchie for the "Camp Rock" sequel.
A few months after "Camp Rock" premiered on Disney Channel, Lovato released her debut studio album titled "Don't Forget." She went on to release five more albums: "Here We Go Again" (2009), "Unbroken" (2011), "Demi" (2013), "Confident" (2015), and "Tell Me You Love Me" (2017).
She has also been nominated for two Grammys: best pop vocal album for "Confident" and best pop duo/performance for "Fall in Line" with Christina Aguilera.
Lovato was also close friends with the Jonas Brothers during her Disney Channel years and beyond. She briefly dated Joe Jonas and developed a strong friendship with Nick Jonas, even going on a joint tour with him in 2016. In a 2020 cover story for Harper's Bazaar, Lovato said that she was no longer friends with them.
The singer entered treatment to deal with her addition in 2010 and celebrated six years of sobriety in March 2018. Three months later, the singer released the track "Sober" and revealed that she relapsed.
In late July 2018, Lovato was hospitalized in Los Angeles after suffering an apparent drug overdose. She made a career comeback in 2020.
She dropped a track called "I Love Me" in 2020 and the accompanying music video was filled with references to various points in her career. The singer also teamed up with Sam Smith for a song called "I'm Ready."
Though music appears to be her primary focus, she has acted in a few movies and shows. She voiced a character in the animated movie "Smurfs: The Lost Village," guest-starred on "Glee," and appeared on NBC's "Will & Grace" revival.
Lovato started dating actor Max Ehrich in 2020. They also appeared in Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's music video for "Stuck With U." The pair revealed their engagement in July 2020.
She was previously in a relationship with "That '70s Show" star Wilmer Valderrama, but they split in 2016 after several years together.
Joe Jonas played a self-centered pop star named Shane Gray.
He was forced to be an instructor at Camp Rock as a way to fix his bad-boy reputation and generate good press. Shane later explained to Mitchie that he changed his music style to please the record label's desire for "cookie-cutter pop" that would sell.
These days, Jonas is known for being a member of the Jonas Brothers.
Siblings Joe, Nick, and Kevin Jonas were already established stars when they appeared in the first "Camp Rock" movie, having previously released two studio albums: "It's About Time" (2006) and "Jonas Brothers" (2007).
Months after "Camp Rock" was released, the Jonas Brothers dropped their third album titled "A Little Bit Longer." The following year, they released "Lines, Vines and Trying Times."
The band also starred on a Disney Channel sitcom called "Jonas," which lasted for two seasons. Joe went on to explore music as a solo artist and released an R&B-inspired album titled "Fastlife" in 2011.
His solo career was short-lived and he found greater success after forming the band DNCE with friends Jack Lawless, Cole Whittle, and JinJoo Lee. Jonas created the group after the Jonas Brothers announced their shocking breakup in 2013.
DNCE released their debut, self-titled album in 2016, which contained hits like "Cake by the Ocean" and "Body Moves." The group also cameoed in Fox's "Grease: Live" as Johnny Casino and The Gamblers.
In addition, Jonas guest-starred on "Hot in Cleveland" and appeared as a coach on season seven of "The Voice Australia."
The Jonas Brothers returned with a catchy song called "Sucker" in early 2019, following a six-year hiatus. They went on to release their fifth album, "Happiness Begins," go on tour, and release two documentaries.
Jonas started dating "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner in 2016. They got engaged the following year. The couple got married during two ceremonies that took place in 2019: one in Las Vegas and the other in France.
In February 2020, multiple publications reported that Turner and Jonas were expecting their first child together. They welcomed their child in July 2020. TMZ reported that Turner gave birth to a daughter named Willa.
Nick Jonas played Nate, a member of the fictional group called Connect 3.
He was the level-headed band member who had a larger role in the "Camp Rock" sequel.
Most recently, Nick Jonas appeared as a coach on season 18 of NBC's "The Voice."
Jonas has kept busy with plenty of roles and music over the years. After "Camp Rock," he formed a side band called "Nick Jonas & The Administration." They released one album, titled "Who I Am," in 2010.
He released a self-titled solo album in 2014, which included a duet with Lovato and the hit track "Jealous," inspired by now ex-girlfriend Olivia Culpo. Two years later, after their split, he released another album called "Last Year Was Complicated."
In 2012, Jonas starred as J. Pierrepont Finch on Broadway's "How to Success in Business Without Really Trying." The role was also portrayed by Daniel Radcliffe and Darren Criss during separate runs.

Jonas started messaging actress Priyanka Chopra in 2016 and they met in real life the following year. They started dating in 2018 and revealed their engagement in August 2018. The couple got married in December of that year at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India during two lavish ceremonies.
