July will certainly be a Disney-tastic month for Singapore! Our little island-city will be bustling with excitement once again on Jul 28. Why? Because that is the day Disney Channel's newest original movie Teen Beach Movie will premiere in Southeast Asia!
Teen Beach Movie stars Ross Lynch (Disney Channel's 'Austin & Ally' and pop-rock band R5) and Maia Mitchell (ABC Family's 'The Fosters') as Brady and McKenzie, surfers who take the last wave of summer, which mysteriously takes them into a classic 1960’s beach party movie, Wet Side Story! There, it's surfers versus bikers for control of the beach hangout… and everyone spontaneously breaks into song and dance. Brady and McKenzie must try to return to present day, but their lives may be changed forever when they inadvertently change the movie's romantic storyline --- will they make it back? Or will they be stuck in the 1960s forever?
The highly-anticipated TV musical will be making its way to Asia with its exclusive premiere in Singapore on July 28, 2013 (Sunday) at *Scape. Joining the fans in the fun-filled Disney Channel Fan Fest are Teen Beach Movie star Maia Mitchell and Disney Channel's 'Good Luck Charlie' star Bridgit Mendler, who recently released her debut album Hello My Name Is... The two teen stars will be present at the Disney Channel Fan Fest and the most exciting part? Bridgit Mendler will performing in Singapore for the very first time at this event! Bridgit will be performing three songs from her album.
Indeed, this is an event all Singaporean Disney addicts cannot miss!
