Teen Beach 2 premieres on Disney Channel.
This June, Disney Channel (DStv Channel 303) brings some summer to winter with the launch of Teen Beach 2. Teen Beach 2 is the highly anticipated surf and song sequel to Teen Beach Movie, the Disney Channel Original Movie that ranks as the second highest-rated cable television movie of all time. The film premieres on Friday, 26 June at 17:00 on Disney Channel.
A fantastical music- and dance-driven story designed for kids, tweens and families, Teen Beach 2 picks up at the close of summer. With surf season over and high school back in session, laid-back Brady and studious Mack's relationship is headed for a wipeout when they receive a surprise real-world visit from their 1960s silver screen friends, Lela and Tanner, who have remarkably departed Wet Side Story, quickly followed by their 1960s bikers and surfer friends led by Butchy, Cheechee and Seacat. Knowing first-hand that the "real" world and the movie world don't mix, Mack, Brady and all of the Wet Side Story friends must quickly devise a plan and use the magic of Lela's necklace to get everyone back to their movie world before it is too late.
Reprising their singing and dancing roles are the multitalented young cast including: Ross Lynch (Austin & Ally and Hollywood Records' R5) as Brady; Maia Mitchell (The Fosters) as McKenzie (Mack); Grace Phipps (Baby Daddy) as Lela; Garrett Clayton (The Fosters) as Tanner; John DeLuca (Twisted) as Butchy; Jordan Fisher (Hollywood Records recording artist) as Seacat; Mollee Gray (So You Think You Can Dance) as Giggles; Chrissie Fit (Pitch Perfect 2) as Cheechee; Jessica Lee Keller (Dancing with the Stars) as Struts; William Loftis (Teen Beach Movie) as Lugnut; and Kent Boyd (So You Think You Can Dance) as Rascal. Joining the cast are Piper Curda (I Didn't Do It) as Alyssa, Raymond Cham, Jr. (Jessie) as Devon and Ross Butler (K.C. Undercover) as Spencer.
Teen Beach Movie director and choreographer Jeffrey Hornaday (choreographer of A Chorus Line, Flashdance) returns to direct and, along with top-notch choreographer Christopher Scott (So You Think You Can Dance, Virgin America's Safety Video), has created ground-breaking production numbers. The sequel is executive produced by Michelle Manning (producer of The Breakfast Club, Jenny's Wedding) and David Buelow (Teen Beach Movie, Bring It On: Fight to the Finish).
