“Zombies 3,” the third and final installment in Disney Channel’s series of supernatural musicals, is officially in production. The film is properly stylized as “Z-O-M-B-I-E-S 3,” which stands for “Zombies 3.” With the help of upbeat choreographed dance sequences, Zed (Milo Manheim) and Addison (Meg Donnelly) will once again unite their village of humans, zombies, and werewolves.
As noted on the Internet Movie Database, the first “Zombies” feature was adapted from “Zombies and Cheerleaders,” a 2012 pilot episode for a show that was never picked up by Disney Channel. According to Deadline, when the show was resurrected as a Disney Channel movie in 2018, it debuted with a completely new cast and quickly rose to the top of the ratings for kids aged 6 to 14, being the most-watched telecast for the entire year. When “Zombies 2” began in 2020, it was able to maintain the same ratings as the first season, allowing the series to maintain its top-rated status for a second year.
So, both fans and Disney Channel have high expectations for “Zombies 3,” which, if the glowing meteorite that made Addison’s hair bright blue at the end of “Zombies 2” is any indicator, will introduce an otherworldly angle to the zombie franchise. This page contains all of the information fans need to know about “Zombies 3,” including the release date, cast, and plot.
Zombies 2 About
Disney Channel Original Movie Zombies 2 is a musical and dance film set in the United States that premiered on the Disney Channel on February 14, 2020. The film, which is a sequel to the 2018 Disney Channel Original Movie Zombies, stars Milo Manheim and Meg Donnelly, as well as Trevor Tordjman, Kylee Russell, and Carla Jeffery, who return in their roles from the previous film, as well as Chandler Kinney, Pearce Joza, and Baby Ariel, who join the group. A werewolf is introduced into Seabrook, which is where the zombies and cheerleaders, who have mostly recovered from the events of the first film, are attempting to coexist and assimilate into the community of Seabrook.
Zombies 3 Cast
Due to the fact that many of the series’ core members will be returning, fans may expect to encounter both familiar faces and new ones in “Zombies 3.”
Milo Manheim and Meg Donnelly will reprise their roles as the two most significant characters in “Zombies 3,” Zed and Addison, in the sequel to the hit zombie film. Ariel Martin will reprise her role as Wynter in “Zombies 2,” according to Deadline. In addition, many of the stars from the previous two films will return, including the werewolves introduced in the previous film, Willa, played by Chandler Kinney, Wyatt, played by Pearce Joza, and Wynter, played by Ariel Martin.
Many actors who have been with the show since the beginning will also return, including Trevor Tordjman and Carla Jeffery, who will reprise their roles as cheerleaders Bucky and Bree. At long last, three of the original zombies from the previous film will return in the form of Kylee Russel, James Godfrey, and Kingston Foster, who will reprise their roles as Eliza, Bonzo, and Zoey.
Three extraterrestrial visitors to Seabrook, played by Matt Cornet as A-Lan, Kyra Tantao as A-Li, and Terry Hu as A-Spen, will be joining the cast. For now, fans will have to wait and see how these newcomers adjust to their new surroundings in a town that has transformed into a mingling ground for various human and monster communities.
Zombies 3 Plot
In light of the meteorite cliffhanger at the end of “Zombies 2” and the confirmation that a trio of actors who would portray extraterrestrial visitors will appear in the film, fans can be quite certain that some key narrative aspects will revolve around extraterrestrials. Fans can expect to see more than just an alien invasion in “Zombies 3,” as the film will also feature a return from the dead.
Both Zed and Addison will be approaching their senior year at Seabrook High School, which will present them with a slew of hurdles to overcome before any visitors from another world arrive, according to a plot summary provided to The Hollywood Reporter by Disney Channel. Addison will be assisting her squad in preparing for their international cheer-off, and Zed will be chasing an athletic scholarship while at school.
If he is granted admission, he will become the first zombie from Seabrook to ever attend a four-year university. Milo Manheim, the actor who portrays Zed, has also revealed to Seventeen that there is a possibility that fans may finally meet Zed’s mother in the third installment.
All of these plans, however, may be thrown into turmoil when the three extraterrestrials, A-Spen, A-Li, and A-Lan, arrive on the scene. The hope is that the zombies, aliens, werewolves, and humans may come to some type of accord, perhaps through a final dance performance, but it’s far too soon to speculate on those story details at this time.
Zombies 3 Release Date
While “Zombie 3” was announced without a specific release date in mind, the timing of the first two films, as well as some industry rumors about the film’s current production status, provide fans with some clues as to when the film will hit theatres. “Zombie 3” will be released in theatres on October 26, 2013.
The Inside the Magic website reports that preproduction on “Zombies 3” appears to have come to a close, with filming scheduled to begin sometime in June 2020. Due to the fact that the film has yet to be given a release date, it is likely that it will not broadcast on Disney Channel until the winter of 2022 at the very earliest.
Previous installments in the franchise have provided yet another indication that this may be true. It was two days after Valentine’s Day when the first “Zombies” film was released on February 16, 2018. ‘Zombies 2’ will be released on Valentine’s Day 2020, which coincides with the release of the first film. Fans can expect “Zombies 3” to be released on February 18, 2023, based on previous premieres and the film’s current shooting timeline.
Zombies 3 Trailer
It is not yet known whether a trailer will be produced for the film. A tiny teaser trailer for Disney+ was recently released. Until the season 3 trailer is available, you can enjoy the teaser trailer in its entirety.
