There, it’s surfers versus bikers for control of the beach hangout…and everyone spontaneously breaks into song and dance.

Blue Sky, Gentle Breeze, Sunshine And Sweet Harmonies Production Has Begun On “Teen Beach Musical,” A Disney Channel Original Movie
School’s out, surf’s up and Disney Channel is taking a dip into the teen beach party movie genre with “Teen Beach Musical,” a modern “no more complications, just good vibrations,” break into song and dance comedy in which surfer girl McKenzie and her boyfriend Brady literally go into a classic surf movie musical where it’s bikers versus surfers — and they’re in for trouble if they don’t back down. While they hatch a plan to get back home to present day, the duo try to blend in as everyone around them spontaneously breaks into song and dance. But when they interfere with the plot of the movie, their fate may be changed forever.
Another Disney Channel Original Movie Musical washes up to shore in 2013. This movie now going by the name of Teen Beach Movie combines some great classic movie themes from the 1960′s. It is always refreshing to see a throwback to old movies in this day and age. Following the High School Musical fame I’m not sure if this movie will live up to expectation although if done correctly it could be a hit. It’s hard to say how i think this movie will go i have seen many musicals on the Disney Channel and enjoyed them but after a while you want something new. I think It’s great having fresh faces appear in the movie,It’s a great way to bring new kids into the business. I can only hope that they don’t turn Maia and Ross into the next Vanessa and Zac simply because they can only be them and they can’t follow anyone else’s road to fame but their own. Knowing Disney I am sure they will play this movie out in a way that reminds us of those old musicals but brings us to a new generation of them. Fact is Disney is always on the cutting edge and i can’t wait to see if this movie sinks or swims!
