In the Disney Channel original movie, Teen Beach Movie, teen surfers McKenzie and Brady are magically transported into a 1960’s beach movie. They figure they just need to blend in until they can find a way to get back home. However, blending isn’t easily done when everyone around them routinely breaks into song and dance seemingly for no reason.

Multi-talented Ashley Tisdale and snowboarding superstar Shaun White are the executive producers of the Disney Channel Original Movie, Cloud 9, an exhilarating story set in the world of competitive snowboarding. The movie, starring Luke Benward (Girl Vs. Monster) and newcomer Dove Cameron (who also stars in an upcoming Disney Channel series ‘Liv & Maddie’ – working title), is scheduled to premiere next winter on Disney Channel.
The story of Cloud 9 follows Kayla, a prima donna snowboarder who was just unceremoniously dropped from her team and forced to train with Will, a former snowboarding champion who’s struggling after a career-ending wipe-out. A video capturing it went viral, branding him an ‘epic fail’ on the Internet. Now, as Kayla trains with Will to redeem her stature, Will creates a training regimen that tests whether she’s really committed to rise to the challenge of professional competition. Meanwhile, Kayla must somehow maneuver to inspire Will to overcome his biggest obstacle — self-doubt.
In addition to Benward and Cameron, the movie stars Kiersey Clemons as Skye, Mike Manning as Nick, Patrick Fabian as Richard, Amy Farrington as Andrea and Jeffrey Nordling as Sebastian.
Via the description for its junior novelization (titled Teen Beach Movie), we have learned that the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, Teen Beach Musical, is set to premiere on Disney Channel on July 19, 2013.
The movie begins on the last day of summer, and McKenzie’s (Maia Mitchell) surf and sand life is about to be upturned when she departs for boarding school to fulfill her family’s dream to graduate from the elite institution. But when she and Brady (Ross Lynch) find themselves literally transported into his favorite classic beach musical, set in the 1960s, about a rivalry between the surfers and bikers and a star-crossed teenage boy who likes a girl, he is ecstatic for endless summer while she is eager to get back home to keep her promise to her family about her schooling. While they hatch a plan to get back to present day, the duo try to blend in and understand 1960s teenagers, but it’s not so easy when everyone around them spontaneously breaks into song and dance. And when they accidentally interfere with the plot of the movie and the lead characters, surf guy Tanner (Garrett Clayton) and biker girl Lela (Grace Phipps), fall for them, instead of each other, Brady and McKenzie fear their fate may be changed forever.

Fan favorite Debby Ryan (“Jessie”) stars as a teen who secretly breaks free from her painfully shy self and into the persona of a bold podcast host who rocks her Seattle high school with music and the message to ‘be yourself,’ in Radio Rebel, a Disney Channel Original Movie based on the novel Shrinking Violet, premiering Friday, February 17 at 8:00 pm ET/PT. The soundtrack will include Debby Ryan performing the smash hit “We Got the Beat.”
In Radio Rebel, Ryan plays Tara Adams, an introverted high school junior who can’t bring herself to speak in class — and especially when the newly-popular rocker, Gavin, is in her midst. Tara can’t imagine anything more intimidating than when her drama teacher teams her in class with Gavin and his prom date, the school’s cliquish queen bee, Stacy. Her shyness at school notwithstanding, alone in her room at home, Tara casts herself as Radio Rebel and, as host of a nightly podcast, showcases her passion for music and self-expression and her message to abandon cliques and celebrate each other’s differences. Radio Rebel quickly gains fans on campus — especially when her show lands on a big, local radio station — much to the chagrin of the school’s principal who considers Radio Rebel and her message to be in clear defiance of the school’s “anti-distraction policy.” Meanwhile, Gavin raves about the mysterious host and her taste in music but still, shy Tara – now oddly jealous of her alter-ego – can barely finish a sentence in front of him. As students clamor to learn the identity of Radio Rebel and the show’s popularity extends across Seattle, Tara’s two worlds begin to collide, reaching an apex when Radio Rebel is nominated prom-queen and the school, in turn, bans prom, causing a backlash from her fans. Now, Tara wrestles with two even bolder moves — organizing an alternative to the prom and revealing that she is Radio Rebel.
Starring are Debby Ryan as Tara Adams, Sarena Parmar (“How to be Indie,” Degrassi”) as Audrey, Adam DiMarco (“The Haunting Hour”) as Gavin, Merritt Patterson (“Kyle XY”) as Stacy and Atticus Mitchell (“My Babysitter’s a Vampire”) as Gabe.
The teleplay for Radio Rebel was written by Erik Patterson and Jessica Scott (Another Cinderella Story, “The Haunting Hour”) and directed by Peter Howitt (Sliding Doors, Johnny English). The executive producers are Fernando Szew (“A Christmas Kiss”), Michael D. Jacobs (“3 Holiday Tails”), Robyn Snyder (“16 Wishes”), Jane Goldenring (“I Do (But I Don’t”), Kim Arnott (“The Haunting Hour”) and Oliver De Caigny (“Dear Santa,” “The Haunting Hour”). Based on the novel Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph, the movie was filmed in Vancouver, Canada. It is a production of MarVista and Two 4 the Money Media.

Disney Channel has shared with us these first look publicity image and stills from its upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, Let It Shine, starring Tyler James Williams, Coco Jones and Trevor Jackson. Let It Shine is a modern day teenaged take on the classic Cyrano de Bergerac story set against the worlds of gospel and hip-hop music.
The story follows 16-year-old Cyrus DeBarge (Tyler James Williams), an aspiring musician who has a gift for rhyme yet lacks the self-confidence to take the stage and, through his rap song, tell his longtime crush Roxanne Andrews (Coco Jones) how he feels about her. After he and his flighty best friend, Kris McDuffy (Trevor Jackson) enter a songwriting contest, Kris is mistakenly named the winner for a song Cyrus wrote. Fearful of being thrust into the spotlight, Cyrus panics and allows Kris to take credit for his heartfelt lyrics and soon he’s standing by as Roxanne begins to fall for Kris.
The Let It Shine soundtrack will feature 12 original songs by acclaimed music producers/songwriters/performers such as Rock Mafia, Grammy-winner Toby Gad and David Banner. It will premiere on Disney Channel in June 2012.
