Disney's ZOMBIES are Shambling & Dancing toward 2018...

Written by

Production has begun on what will likely be a huge hit next summer - Disney’s Zombies, "a music- and dance-filled story about a groundbreaking semester at Seabrook High School." Now, what will be "groundbreaking" for "the pride and joy of Seabrook, a suburban town preoccupied with uniformity, traditions and pep rallies?" How about the arrival of transfer students from Zombietown, who "integrate into the school and a cheerleader and zombie football star, Addison and Zed, fall in love?" There's certainly a bit of a "Monster High" vibe being given off in the production announcement, with themes of coexistence and acceptance running right alongside the forthcoming Disney Junior series, Vampirina as well.

More from the Announcement: Set for premiere in 2018 as part of the Disney Channel Original Movie franchise, the  movie is directed by Jeffrey Hornaday, choreographed by Christopher Scott and Hornaday (both of "Teen Beach Movie"), and executive produced by Effie Brown ("Star," "Dear White People") and Hornaday.

Leading the cast are Meg Donnelly (ABC’s "American Housewife") as Addison and Milo Manheim ("Ghost Whisperer") as Zed. Also starring are Trevor Tordjman ("The Next Step") as Addison’s cousin and head cheerleader Bucky, Kylee Russell ("Jump In") as Zed’s zombie best friend Eliza and Carla Jeffery ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") as Addison’s friend Bree.

The story is by David Light & Joseph Raso, and teleplay by David Light & Joseph Raso and Josh Cagan ("The Duff"). Light and Raso also serve as co-producers.

Stay tuned for more details as I have them...
