It turns out lucky number 21 features the gang when they first encounter Lotso and some of the many new friends at Sunnyside Daycare. You can even spot the Lightning McQueen toy at Woody’s feet.

Disney Channel’s ‘Camp Rock 2’ Lets Out on Home Video on September 7

Camp Rock 2: Extended Edition © WDSHEQuite a few of our readers scoffed when we announced that Disney Channel’s Original Movie Camp Rock 2: Final Jam would be making its television debut on September 3. Why are Hollywood kids going to camp when the rest of us commoners are already back in school?

An amazing question we have no answer for, yet even more puzzling to us is that if you happen to miss the Disney Channel premiere, you can now simply just take a deep breath and just go out and buy it on DVD because according to Amazon.com, the DVD is set to be released on September 7, just a few days later. Pre-orders are now being accepted for both the Blu-ray/DVD Combo and the DVD editions.
