Zombies 2, the sequel to Disney’s Zombies movie, will begin production this spring with stars Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim reprising their roles as the film’s main characters, Addison and Zed, respectively.
Zombies was cable’s number one telecast for 2018 in the 6 to 11 and 9 to 14 age groups in the U.S. when it premiered last February. It was also Disney Channel’s number one VOD property and was the top title in the DisneyNOW app for 2018.
The second movie will pick up at Seabrook High where the first movie left off, as Addison and Zed—a human cheerleader and a zombie football player, respectively—grapple with the arrival of a new group in town—werewolves.
“Zombies took our worldwide audience of kids and families by storm with its powerful themes and incredible music,” said Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide. “We’re thrilled with the work of writers David Light and Joseph Raso and look forward to working again with the immensely talented Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim, as well as our equally talented director, Paul Hoen, to bring a new chapter of Zombies to life.”
