‘Skyrunners’ & ‘I’m In the Band’ Coming Nov 27 to DisneyXD


-“Aaron Stone” star Kelly Blatz stars in DisneyXD’s first original movie, “Skyrunners” which premieres on November 27 at 5pm EST. The story follows teenage brothers Tyler (Joey Pollari) and Nick Burns (Kelly Blatz of Disney XD’s “Aaron Stone”) who commandeer a small UFO that crashes near their town. They soon learn the spacecraft is “alive” and there’s an ominous alien plot to take over Earth. The movie also stars Linda Kash (Disney Channel’s “Full-Court Miracle”), Conrad Coates (“Kyle XY”), Jacqueline MacInnes Wood and Nathan Stephenson.

The premiere of “Skyrunners” will be followed by a special preview of the new DisneyXD comedy, “I’m in the Band” starring Logan Miller (Ghosts of Girlfriends Past). The show will begin airing regularly in January 2010. The show follows teenager Tripp Campbell (Miller) as he joins his favorite “vintage” rock band, Iron Weasel, and sets out to help them make an epic comeback. He’s certainly got his work cut out for him with the trio of rock star misfits, whose stars have fallen so far that they can’t even afford their own housing and are forced to share bunk beds in a guest room at Tripp’s house. Nonetheless, in their own off the wall way, the three stooges will do their best to help Tripp steer through his teenage years with the goal of turning him into a bona fide rock star and giving him the chance to live out his dream.

Also starring in the show are Steve Valentine (“Crossing Jordan,” “Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie”) as Derek Jupiter, Greg Baker (“Sports Night,” “Hannah Montana”) as Burger Pitt, Stephen Full (“Hannah Montana,” “CSI”) as Ash and Caitlyn Taylor Love as Izzy Fuentes. The preview episode is entitled “Weasels in the House.” Tripp Campbell’s dreams come true when he wins a radio contest to have dinner with his favorite rock band, Iron Weasel, and manages to impress them with his musical skills. Amazingly, he lands the lead guitar role, and before long the band is staying in the guest room at his house and playing a gig at Tripp’s school.

Be sure to tune in to DisneyXD on November 27 starting at 5pm EST.
