‘Zombies 2’ Preview
Writers David Light and Joseph Raso, Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim, and director, Paul Hoen, work together to bring the Zombies sequel to life.
The sequel airs in the US on the Disney Channel on February 14 and in the UK Disney Channel in the UK on February 28. The movie was filmed in Toronto between May and July 2019.
Disney released a series of teasers to promote the sequel to the original hit and to introduce new characters and story developments.
A new development is the arrival of werewolves to Seabroook, one of which presents a challenge to Zed in his ongoing pursuit of Addison.
In another preview, Zed attempts an off-kilter proposal, asking Addison to go to the prawn (Seabrook High’s version of the prom) with him only to get hit by bus which ends of driving off the road into the woods.
All the cast members from the original are coming back for the sequel. The starring roles are played by Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim, who performed the roles of star-crossed lovers Addison and Zed in the original.
Trevor Tordjman (Addison’s cousin Bucky), Kylee Russell (Zed’s friend Eliza), Carla Jeffery (Addison’s friend Bree), James Godfrey (Bonzo) and Kingston Foster (Zed’s sister Zoey) all return to the sequel to pick up their characters where the first movie left them at its conclusion.
Chandler Kinney (Willa), Pearce Joza (Wyatt) and Ariel Martin (Wynter) join the cast, playing teen werewolves. Willa and Wyatt are brother and sister and Wynter is the third packmate to join Seabrook.
The original Zombies movie introduced Zed (Manheim), a football player/zombie high schooler, and Addison (Donnelly), a human cheerleader, who combined the zombie and human communities in the town of Seabrook. Zombies 2 begins after last year’s groundbreaking semester at Seabrook High, when a new group of werewolves shows up and challenges the newly united town and threaten Zed and Addison’s relationship right before Seabrook High’s Prawn, the school’s supersized prom.
Zombies was the #1 telecast among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14 for 2018. It also was Disney Channel’s #1 video-on-demand property and the #1 title in the DisneyNOW app for 2018.
Zombies 2 was written by David Light and Joseph Raso, both of whom were nominated for a Humanitas Prize for Zombies. The sequel will be directed by Paul Hoen, who also directed the first movie. Anna Gerb (All Is Lost, Triple Frontier), Hoen, Light and Raso are executive producers.
The original Zombies premiered in February 2018 and delivered over 12.8 million viewers, including 4.0 million kids aged 6-11 in its first 10 telecasts. Zombies was also Disney Channel’s #1 video-on-demand property and was the #1 title in the DisneyNOW app for 2018.
Its videos on DisneyMusicVEVO have amassed over 377 million views. The movie soundtrack debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Children’s chart, #4 on the Billboard Top Soundtrack chart, #2 on the iTunes Soundtrack chart and #3 on the iTunes album chart.
