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. And when they accidentally interfere with the plot of the movie and make the romantic leads Tanner and Lela fall for them instead, it looks like they might be stuck for good.

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.

As the story goes, teenage twins Cody and Zack Martin receive an opportunity to participate in the prestigious Gemini Project at a high-tech research center that studies the dynamics between twins. Soon they find themselves connected in a way they’ve never been before: When one twin experiences a sensation, thought or feeling, the other twin feels it too. While this newfound power helps the boys see eye to eye for the first time, it ultimately puts them in more danger than they could have imagined.
The writers for “The Suite Life Movie” are Michael Saltzman, who wrote the story for “The Pink Panther” movie and executive-produced “Murphy Brown,” and Robert Horn, writer of Broadway’s “13,” writer/producer of “Designing Women” and writer of Disney Channel’s upcoming “Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure.”
Sean McNamara is directing the movie. He executive-produced the hit series “Even Stevens,” for which he also earned two DGA Award nominations, and produced “That’s So Raven” for Disney Channel. He also directs the Disney XD series “Zeke and Luther.” Pamela Eells O’Connell (“The Suite Life on Deck,” “Family Matters”), Irene Dreayer (“The Suite Life on Deck,” “Sister, Sister”), Jessica Rhoades (“Den Brother”), Dylan Sprouse and Cole Sprouse are executive producers.
