Surf’s up dude! Disney Channel’s original movie “Teen Beach Movie” finally has a release date!
Entertainment Weekly broke the news today that the movie musical will premiere July 19 at 8pm on Disney Channel. The movie stars Ross Lynch and Maia Mitchell as Brady and McKenzie, surfers who take the last wave of summer, one that mysteriously takes them into a classic beach party movie, Wet Side Story. There, it’s surfers versus bikers for control of the beach hangout…and everyone spontaneously breaks into song and dance. Brady and McKenzie must try to return to present day, but their lives may be changed forever when they inadvertently change the movie’s romantic storyline — and the movie’s handsome surf guy, Tanner, is falling for McKenzie while biker girl Lela is swooning for Brady.
“Teen Beach Movie” also stars: Grace Phipps (ABC Family’s “The Nine Lives of Chloe King”) as Lela, Garrett Clayton as Tanner, John Deluca as Butchy, Chrissie Fit (“General Hospital”) as Cheechee, with 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.
In addition to sweet dances, the film features 12 songs. Be on the lookout for the trailer debut on Disney.com on Friday, March 15 at midnight PST & 9pm EST on Disney Channel. The soundtrack will be released July 16.
