Following a report last week of the Disney Channel starting work on a third “Zombies” movie, Disney has now officially confirmed that the film is now in production.
The third film will see Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim reprising their respective roles as Addison and Zed, Seabrook’s star-crossed cheerleader and zombie couple.
“After the enormous success of ZOMBIES 2, we wanted to raise the stakes in this third and final installment,” said Lauren Kisilevsky, vice president, Original Movies, Disney Branded Television. “So when the ultimate outsiders descend on Seabrook, our team of cheerleaders, zombies, and werewolves must band together to face a threat of galactic proportions that may change the face of Seabrook forever.”
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.
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, Raso, and Suzanne Farwell serve as executive producers. ZOMBIES 3 is a production of Bloor Street Productions.
Both Zombies 1 and 2 are available now on Disney+.
