LOS ANGELES — With her hit "Hannah Montana" series arriving on the big screen in April, Miley Cyrus said she's hopeful of continuing her television run, contrary to what the tabloids would lead you to believe.

"This movie was never meant to be the end of 'Hannah Montana,' " the 16-year-old Cyrus tells Billboard magazine. "The thing is, a lot of people put where the show's future lays in my hands — and it's not up to me. It's up to Disney and whether they want more episodes, and we hope that they do."

While Disney has been mulling over the option to renew the show for a fourth season, Cyrus has been busy releasing music and an autobiography under her own name and not the fictional character that she portrays.

"It's just an honor for people to be able to relate to me and my music — and not so much the character anymore," she said. "I can't be Hannah Montana forever. I have to have something after this. I can't do this when I'm 30."

As for what fans can expect when "Hannah Montana: The Movie" arrives in theaters on April 10, Cyrus said get ready for the Hoedown Throwdown.

"We just all kind of made it up as we went along," she explains of the film's big dance number. "You have to be semi-coordinated to do it."
