Let’s Stick Together
An elderly bee, seeing an equally elderly Donald Duck in the park, looks back on their long partnership. The bee started helping Donald pick up trash, then using his sharp stinger to increase sales for balloon vendor Donald, then as a tattoo artist, and finally doing embroidery. After a particularly demanding tapestry, the bee asks for time off, and Donald shows him to a custom-built greenhouse. In there, along with lots of lovely flowers, and moreover, a lady bee. This obviously causes some problems in the relationship with Donald.
Mickey sends Pluto to the butcher store. Butch sees this and contrives to take Pluto’s sausage, ultimately using some of his fleas to distract Pluto long enough. Pluto manages to retrieve the prize and get it safely home, only to discover it’s a birthday present for Butch.
Featuring electrifying dance numbers and bold new original songs, “ZOMBIES 2” picks up a few months after the original in the town of Seabrook, where the newly united communities of humans and zombies are reveling in their new-found peace. Addison is finishing up an exciting and competitive session at cheer camp and Zed is preoccupied with his plan to ask her to Prawn, Seabrook High’s mighty shrimp-themed prom. However, when a new group of mysterious teenage werewolves unexpectedly arrive in search of an ancient life source buried somewhere in Seabrook, a fearful city council immediately reenacts Seabrook’s anti-monster laws, making it impossible for Zed and Addison to attend Prawn together. Determined to keep their plan to be the first zombie/cheerleader couple to go to the prom, Zed runs for school president against cheer captain, Bucky, in order to change the rules.
Meanwhile, the werewolves, including fierce pack leader Willa, her earnest brother Wyatt and their well-intentioned but sometimes over-eager friend Wynter, enroll at Seabrook High and embark on a search to find the powerful moonstone that can restore their fading strength and energy. The wolves suspect that Addison may hold the secret to finding the precious stone and begin to draw her into their circle. Fearing he might lose Addison to the werewolf pack, Zed sabotages Addison’s effort to find out if she really belongs amongst them. When his deception is revealed and Addison confronts the truth about her identity, zombies, cheerleaders and werewolves all discover the real meaning of community and acceptance.
