The Sandler teenagers have appeared in small roles in almost all films made through Happy Madison Productions – the production company founded by their father in 1999.
So, who are Sadie and Sunny Sandler?
Adam Sandler’s daughters Sadie Sandler and Sunny Sandler have had small roles in several films by Happy Madison Productions, the company behind You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah

Who is Sadie Sandler?
Sadie is Sandler’s eldest daughter, who declared the actor her favorite person when she was 14 months old.
‘It was my wife the whole time and then the last month or two, it’s all Sandler,’ the comedian said on an episode of The Tonight Show in 2007.
‘It’s like anything I do, the kid wants to do.’
She made her first film appearance in her father’s 2008 movie You Don’t Mess with the Zohan and her second in Bedtime Stories that same year.
Sadie Sandler, pictured with parents Jackie and Adam, made her on-screen debut in the 2008 film You Don’t Mess with the Zohan. She has since been credited in more than 20 film roles
Her appearance in Bedtime Stories led to her father admitting that Sadie may have been too big a fan of his bedtime stories to her.
‘I’m not great at the bedtime stories,’ he said while promoting the movie. ‘The bedtime stories are supposed to put the kid to sleep, [but] my kid gets riled up.’
Sadie herself had an incredible Bat Mitzvah in 2019 with all of her friends and a very special guest – Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
‘I text him, ”I’m sorry to do this to you, my kid’s getting bat mitzvahed Saturday night. Would you mind coming and singing a few tunes? It would be incredible.”’
Sunny Sandler has sang several songs at her father’s shows by herself and with her sister Sadie Sandler. Her portrayal of Stacy Friedman in You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah will be her first starring role
Who is Sunny Sandler?
Adam and Jackie Sandler welcomed Sunny into the world on November 2, 2008 – five months after Sadie made her big screen debut.
Sunny made her film debut in the 2010 blockbuster Grown Ups and has added over a dozen film credits since.
She also has a passion for singing. Sunny and Sadie have sung with their father on multiple occasions, but it was the youngest Sandler who earned a standing ovation for her rendition of ‘A Million Dreams’ from The Greatest Showman in June 2019.
Like her sister, she also had a hard-to-beat Bat Mitzvah, which guest performer Halsey said was ‘the craziest bat mitzvah I’ve ever seen in my life’.
Singer Charlie Puth also performed at her party, and her star-studded guest list included her father’s old co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Lautner.
Her friend Lilah Newkirk also posted a TikTok video of the 2022 occasion that reached over 2 million views.
