Olivia Holt and Ross Lynch Land Disney Channel Original Movies
Two new Disney Channel Original Movies have been announced, starring two Disney Channel faves.
According to Deadline, “Kickin’ It” star Olivia Holt has been tapped to star in “Girl Vs. Monster.” The movie will follow a teen girl (Holt) who, on the eve of Halloween, discovers she’s a fifth generation monster hunter. But before she begins her family’s true calling, the monsters will try to stop her.
Ross Lynch from “Austin & Ally” has also scored himself a DCOM…a musical one at that! Production has already started in Puerto Rico on “Teen Beach Musical,” which was first reported by TV Guide. How cute is the pic to the left of Ross Lynch w/ co-star Maia Mitchell from the movie?
The movie begins on the last day of summer, and McKenzie’s surf and sand life is about to be upturned when she departs for boarding school to fulfill her family’s dream to graduate from the elite institution. But when she and Brady find themselves literally transported into his favorite classic beach musical, set in the 1960s, about a rivalry between the surfers and bikers and a star-crossed teenage boy who likes a girl, he is ecstatic for endless summer while she is eager to get back home to keep her promise to her family about her schooling. While they hatch a plan to get back to present day, the duo try to blend in and understand 1960s teenagers, but it’s not so easy when everyone around them spontaneously breaks into song and dance. And when they accidentally interfere with the plot of the movie and the lead characters, surf guy Tanner and biker girl Lela, fall for them, instead of each other, Brady and McKenzie fear their fate may be changed forever.
The movie is a modern “no more complications, just good vibrations,” break into song and dance comedy. In addition to Ross as Brady, the movie stars Maia Mitchell (Australia’s “Trapped,” “Castaway”) as McKenzie, Garrett Clayton (“Shake it Up”) as Tanner, Grace Phipps (ABC Family’s “The Nine Lives of Chloe King”) as Lela, John DeLuca (“Wizards of Waverly Place,” “Ugly Betty”) as Butchy, Chrissie Fit (“General Hospital”) as Chee Chee, Tony Award-nominated Kevin Chamberlin (“Jessie,” Broadway’s “The Addams Family”) as Dr. Fusion and Steve Valentine (“Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie,” Disney XD’s “I’m In The Band”) as Les Camembert.
