Disney Channel fans have been waiting a long time for this moment. Everyone’s favorite zombie-cheerleader couple, Zed and Addison, who will both be played by original cast members Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim, will be returning to television so clear those schedules and get the popcorn ready because this is a film you won’t want to miss.
In the sequel, 19 year old singer and actress Baby Ariel, whose real name is Ariel Martin, will be joining the ZOMBIES 2 cast. Baby Ariel will be playing a werewolf in the new film named Wynter.
According to Baby Ariel, Wynter is a “very passionate, very emotional, very loving” werewolf whose main priority is protecting her pack. “Her pack is number one, her family’s number one, the werewolves come first for her,” she told POPSUGAR.
“Because she cares so much, sometimes she doesn’t know how to handle those emotions and [she] can get very angry very quick, very soft very quick, and very happy [very quick]. She’s all over the place, but it’s because she cares and has the biggest heart.”
And now, Baby Ariel is giving us a new music video for her song titled “The New Kid in Town,” which features some of her ZOMBIES 2 cast! The new song will slo be featured on the ZOMBIES 2 soundtrack. It’s safe to say, this new video is getting us even more excited for Valentine’s Day! Check it out below.
Baby Ariel was a huge fan of the original Disney Channel movie, ZOMBIES, and was eager to join the cast of the sequel. “I was just over the moon excited. They made us feel like a family the second we stepped in.”
“We had a month of rehearsal before we started filming, which was great because instead of being on set every day right away, we got the chance to bond during dance rehearsals and go out to eat. We had game nights every single day from the second we got there. We bonded so much. We really became a big family, and that I think also translated into the movie.”
More About The Sequel ZOMBIES 2
The highly anticipated sequel will follow Addison and Zed as they get ready for Seabrook High’s Prawn, which is almost like prom, when an unanticipated event happens.
A new pack of teenage werewolves show up to Seabrook in order to find “an ancient life force buried somewhere within the town”. Of course, Addison and Zed have to put their prawn-night plans aside, including being the first-ever zombie-cheerleader couple to attend the big event together.
Meanwhile, Zed decides to launch a campaign to run for school president and change the rules and Addison finds herself pulled towards the werewolves’ circle, which gets her thinking “could this be where she finally fits in?”
Zed, desperate to save Addison from going to the werewolf pack, decides to take matters into his own hands and takes action, but his plan unfortunately backfires. The truth eventually comes out and everyone (zombies, cheerleaders, and werewolves) discover the real meaning of community and acceptance.
We can expect brand new songs, fun content, and an amazing storyline (just like the original film)!
