In “Hatching Pete,” Pete Ivey is a quiet and often overlooked 16-year-old who must substitute for his outgoing best friend Cleatus Poole when Cleatus cannot complete his duties as their high school mascot, a chicken. The chicken mascot, with Pete anonymously behind the mask, soon becomes the main attraction at school, but no one knows it is not Cleatus in the suit. Once it’s revealed that Cleatus is not in the costume, it is up to Pete to decide if he is willing to step into the spotlight. Starring are: Jason Dolley (“Cory in the House” and “Minutemen”); Mitchel Musso; Tiffany Thornton; Josie Loren (“17 Again”); and Brian Stepanek (“The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” and “Brian O’Brian”). The movie was written by Paul W. Cooper (“Murder, She Wrote,” “Little House on the Prairie”), and was directed and co-produced by Stuart Gillard (Disney Channel’s “Twitches” and “Twitches Too”).
