The television premiere of Teen Beach Movie, a Disney Channel Original Movie is Friday, July 19 at 8pm, ET/PT. Disney is making it available early, this Monday, July 15 to verified users on the Watch Disney Channel app and WatchDisneyChannel.com.
Teen Beach Movie introduces confident, resilient surfer McKenzie and her carefree boyfriend Brady, a fan of the retro surf musical movie, Wet Side Story. On the morning of McKenzie’s planned departure for boarding school, she and Brady catch one last epic wave which mysteriously carries them right into Wet Side Story, circa 1962, where they meet Seacat, Giggles, Rascal, and Cheechee, among others. Amidst the spontaneous song and dance, there’s trouble in paradise.
