Today, during a special “Next 100” presentation at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Disney revealed some new details and a first look at a brand new animated series based on the “Zombies” Disney Channel movies.
Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim will reprise their roles as Seabrook’s star-crossed zombie/cheerleader couple, Zed and Addison, in Disney Branded Television’s next iteration of the hit “ZOMBIES” franchise. Fans can first catch the Seabrook crew in animated form in “ZOMBIES: The Re-Animated Series Shorts,” premiering Friday, July 21st 2023, on Disney Channel, Disney Channel YouTube and DisneyNOW, and thereafter on Disney+. Next, “ZOMBIES: The Re-Animated Series,” a new comedy-musical animated series, will premiere on Disney Channel, before arriving on Disney+. No international release details have been announced.
“ZOMBIES: The Re-Animated Series Shorts” is an animated short-form series that continues the adventures of fan favorites Zed, Addison and the Seabrook crew from the hit “ZOMBIES” franchise. The shorts, which keep the spirit and jam-packed music of the movies, find the friends encountering new monsters — a carnivorous plant monster, horrifying mega-cricket and even evil clones — while dealing with school and new experiences like a never-ending summer time loop.
Reprising their roles are Ariel Martin, Chandler Kinney and Pearce Joza as werewolves Wynter, Willa and Wyatt; Carla Jeffery and Trevor Tordjman as cheerleaders Bree and Bucky; Jonathan Langdon as Coach; James Godfrey and Kylee Russell as zombies Bonzo and Eliza; and Terry Hu as outer space alien A-Spen.
The series is being executive produced by Aliki Theofilopoulos, Jack Ferraiolo, Gary Marsh, David Light, and Joseph Raso. With Melanie Pal as a producer and Leah Artwick as the supervising director. Rachel McNevin is the story editor on the show.
