‘Teen Beach Movie 2’ Sets Sail at Disney Channel

'Teen Beach Movie 2' Sets Sail

Not that there was much doubt, but Disney Channel execs confirmed on Saturday that a sequel to last summer’s hit musical telepic “Teen Beach Movie” is on the way.

“Teen Beach Movie 2”  will reunite the key cast members and creatives from the original, which paid homage to the beach-party movies of the 1960s with a time travel storyline that sent a pair of contempo surfing buffs back to the era of bouffants and Brylcreem. Disney confirmed the news on Saturday at the taping of the Radio Disney Music Awards kudocast.

Ross Lynch, Maia Mitchell, Grace Phipps, Garrett Clayton and John DeLuca will reprise their roles. Director-choreographer Jeffrey Hornaday is back to helm the sequel, from a script by  Robert Horn, Dan Berendsen, Matt and Billy Eddy. Michelle Manning and David Buelow will produce. The pic is targeted to bow next year.

The storyline will pick up a few months after the end of the first pic.

“The audience response to the first ‘Teen Beach Movie’ was overwhelming. We are thrilled to have the cast back for a new music-driven saga that continues this fantastical story,” said Gary Marsh, prexy and chief creative officers of Disney Channels Worldwide.

Last July, “Teen Beach Movie” racked up 13.5 million viewers, making it second only to “High School Musical 2” on the list of most-watched Disney Channel telepics. The pic also yielded a hit soundtrack album for the Mouse House and a handful of iTunes hits.

    I love watching every time I see it on TV & it combines two of my favorite things. I love doing quizzes of the teen beach movie also. One of my girlfriends loves Ross Lynch she is like his #1 fan & I bet if it was okay with her parents she would love to be on the movie too. Katie is a very great friend & my mom & I notices that she tries to be that person she is playing. Katie also does something really cool that she prints out of a picture & puts it on her shirt. I know for a fact she has one of Ross Lynch picture on a shirt she made. We do some fun plays! I love to try to surf. I already been on a Harley Davidson Motorcycle with my dad & I loved every moment I was on it.
