Disney’s newest original movie Z.O.M.B.I.E.S. is bringing the dead back to life.
Z.O.M.B.I.E.S. marries the classic Romeo and Juliet story of young love torn apart by their different backgrounds with a touch of Dawn of the Dead in a sweet, spunky and not at all scary tale of tolerance and being true to yourself.
Z.O.M.B.I.E.S. takes place in Seabrook, a picture-perfect little town that suffers a devastating accident at the local power plant after a spilled lime soda causes the plant to emit a contaminated green haze, turning half of the population into brain-eating zombies. When things get out of control, a barrier wall is built to keep the human population safe from the undead.
Fast-forward 50 years, and technology to control the zombies has been developed. The zombies, who now sustain themselves on a cauliflower brain alternative, are allowed to attend high school, but things get off to a bad start as the human kids are not eager to welcome their undead counterparts.
Addison, played by Meg Donnelly (American Housewife) is an adorable, open-minded cheerleader with a shameful secret, meets Zed, played by Milo Manheim (Ghost Whisperer) is a tall, handsome and slightly green zombie football phenom, who must go rogue with his zombie tendencies to win the game. The pair teams up to change the ignorant views on both sides to finally break down the wall between their two communities.
In the same tenor as Disney’s Descendants, this colorful, campy, movie is bursting with original songs and dance routines that will make the whole family want to get up and cheer.
Don’t miss the premiere of Z.O.M.B.I.E.S. on Friday, February 16 at 8pm ET on Disney Channel.
