Teen Beach Movie is the newest Disney Channel Original Movie that gives a modern twist on the classic West Side Story with a surf-rock musical comedy. It premiers on the Disney Channel on Friday, July 19, 2013. This is a must-see movie for the entire family – make plans now to make it a family movie night. I received Teen Beach Movie items to facilitate this post.
Disney Teen Beach Movie is geared for kids ages 6-14 and their families. I love how Disney creates quality entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. In this movie, a teen surfing couple are riding the last wave of the summer when Brady reaches to save McKenzie and they both end up in a 1960 classic beach party from the West Side Story!
While in the movie, Brady and McKenzie accidentally alter the movie’s romantic storyline.They must decide what their true destiny is and whether to follow their hearts. Surfer Tanner falls for McKenzie and biker girl Lela likes Brady.
This looks like a great movie with positive themes of believing in yourself and friendship – qualities that I applaud in movies.
Teen Beach Movie will have plenty of surf-rock music and dance. The costumes look so bright and cheerful too! If you watched the above clip, you’ll see how awesome the dancing and choreography looks. The Teen Beach Movie soundtrack features 12 songs including surf rock, Motown R&B, rockabilly and pop that is sure to be available on the Disney Digital Music Store soon.
Teen Beach Movie premieres July 19, 2013 (8:00 p.m. ET/PT) on Disney Channel.
Our Beach Theme Movie Night
I have blogged plenty about having family movie night. It is a time my family looks forward to. We always pop some popcorn and snuggle up together on the couch to enjoy a family-friendly film.
Teen Beach Movie looks like a great fit for my family. To start the excitement, we threw our own beach theme movie night tonight with the cool Teen Beach Movie gear we graciously received.
We don’t typically have themed family movie nights but after tonight – we might just have to start! It was fun getting our beach towels, goggles, and even sea shells out to decorate. My son especially enjoyed helping.
Then, pretending to surf on the inflatable pool toy was my kids favorite activity. My daughter laid on it the entire time we watched Disney Little Mermaid – it was close to a beach theme!
The Disney Channel website had a ton of fun Teen Beach Movie party kit items that you can download to throw your own Teen Beach Movie party. Choose from themed recipes, games, activities, decorations, and even music videos. It would make a fantastic birthday party theme this Summer for kids! You can start buying the Teen Beach Movie themed products on July 16, 2013.
Tune in on the Disney Channel on Friday, July 19, 2013 and tell us what you think of the movie!
