Haun also starred in the Emmy-winning Disney Channel original movie, The Color of Friendship in 2000, which was based on a true story; from there she continued her relationship with Disney as one of the Movie Surfers. She later appeared in ABC Family's Brave New Girl, a television film based on the book co-written by Britney Spears.

In 2006, she starred in the movie Broken Bridges with Toby Keith, and was also signed to his record label, Show Dog Nashville, to be their first "cross-over" artist. Haun is also featured on the movie's soundtrack.
