On the Disney Channel I can always find kid-friendly programing along with great family movies. Not to disappoint this summer, premiering July 19th, is Disney Channels newest feature “Teen Beach Movie!” This is a movie the whole family will enjoy together.
Teen Beach Movie
"Teen Beach Movie" follows teen surfing sweethearts Brady and McKenzie who together ride the last wave of summer, one that mysteriously takes them into a classic beach party movie, “Wet Side Story.” Now, Brady and McKenzie must try to return to present day, but their lives may be changed forever when they inadvertently alter the movie's romantic storyline when handsome surfer Tanner falls for McKenzie and biker girl Lela starts swooning for Brady.
Just reading the movies plot brought back memories of the classic "beach films" we’ve all come to know and love and I’m excited to see what the younger generation does with "Teen Beach Movie." I’m hoping my kids (especially my daughter) will find the singing, dancing, and retro fashions as engaging as I found “Beach Blanket Bingo” and its predecessors.
Introducing the cast
Teen Beach Movie is packed with a wonderful cast including:
- Ross Lynch, star of Disney Channel’s Austin & Ally & Hollywood Records’ R5
- Maia Mitchell, star of ABC Family’s The Fosters (executive produced by Jennifer Lopez) and guest star on Disney Channel’s Jessie
