From D23, we’re getting the beginnings of the Zombies 3 plot, which brings Zed to his senior year and considers college plans. Meanwhile, Addison has the competition of her life ahead of her when aliens land…

In ZOMBIES 3, Zed and Addison are beginning their final year at Seabrook High in the town that’s become a safe haven for monsters and humans alike. Zed is anticipating an athletic scholarship that will make him the first Zombie to attend college, while Addison is gearing up for Seabrook’s first international cheer-off competition. Then, suddenly, extraterrestrial beings appear around Seabrook, provoking something other than friendly competition.

We also learned that DGA Award-winner Paul Hoen, who’s directed a record-setting 15 Disney Channel Original Movies, including both ZOMBIES installments, will direct the “trequel” from a screenplay by David Light and Joseph Raso. Light and Raso will serve as executive producers, along with Suzanne Farwell.
