Disney Channel brings us more old movie magic thanks to the success of Teen Beach Movie ( a mashup of Frankie & Annette , West Side Story, and Grease ) with Teen Beach Movie 2 and the Wet Side Story characters entering the real world this summer.
Its a great time to intro the little ones in your life to what Classic Hollywood was all about. As I mention in another post, the classics only fuel what we create now and it’s always fun to be the person in the room who actually knows what the film reference refers to.
While Maia Mitchell and Ross Lynch play our lead characters from modern day beach land ( above), our two leads reviving the Sharks VS Jets are Grace of the Bikers and Garret of the Surfers.
Our Leading Ladies: Natalie Wood and Grace Phipps
Our Leading Men: Richard Beymer and Garrett Clayton
and of course… not much has changed in 55 years.
Enjoy Summer! Teen Beach Movie 2 premieres on the Disney Channel June 26th at 8pm.
