Ride the perfect wave
Say hi to the sky
Surf, sun, sand
It's a bikini wonderland
Summer's on and we've gone
Surf, surf crazy

DISNEY UNLEASHES CONTEMPORARY SURF-ROCK MUSICAL "TEEN BEACH MOVIE" WITH SOUNDTRACK PRE-ORDER ON iTUNES TODAY AND BIG SURF PARTY MOVIE PREMIERE, FRIDAY, JULY 19 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

-- National Sponsors Honda and Best Western International on Board --

-- DVD with Exclusive Dance Rehearsal Footage and Musical Number Available July 30 -

-- Ross Lynch, Maia Mitchell, Garrett Clayton, Grace Phipps, John Deluca, Chrissie Fit, Barry Bostwick, Kevin Chamberlin and Steve Valentine Star --

Disney Channel is primed to unleash Seacat, Giggles, Rascal, Lugnut, Struts, Butchy, Cheechee, Tanner, Lela, Brady and Mack via today's iTunes pre-order of the surf-rock/pop soundtrack for "Teen Beach Movie," an exuberant song, sand and surf fest set inside a retro beach party movie. The storyline depicts how 1960s sensibilities motivate a modern girl to affirm her capability, strengths and goals.

The television premiere of "Teen Beach Movie," a Disney Channel Original Movie sponsored by Honda and Best Western International, is FRIDAY, JULY 19 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel U.S. followed by telecasts on Disney Channels around the world. It will be available Monday, July 15 to verified users on the WATCH Disney Channel app and WATCHDisneyChannel.com.

Made for kids age 6-14 and their families, the summer splash includes event telecasts, a soundtrack from Walt Disney Records in stores nationwide on Tuesday, July 16, licensed product spanning apparel, home décor, fashion dolls, bedding, lunch kits, stationery/school supplies and more available at Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, Kohls, Kmart, Disney Stores and other retailers, a junior novel and e-book, themed stickers, frames and filters in the brand new Disney Channel Photo Finish app, a 10-city "Teen Beach Movie Beach Party" event tour at Simon Malls, "Teen Beach Movie" activities and prizes at Radio Disney events across the U.S., seven-foot "Teen Beach Movie"-branded beach balls at One Direction and R5 concerts across the U.S., and the "Teen Beach Movie" DVD with exclusive video available July 19 exclusively at Walmart, and on July 30 at retailers nationwide.

"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 -- it's bikers versus surfers for control of the local hangout, but Mack and Brady unwittingly interfere with the movie's star-crossed plot, one that would pair a surfer (teen matinee idol Tanner) and a biker (Lela, the sister of Butchy, the biker gang's leader). Typical of the teen beach movie genre, a kooky subplot has mad scientists Les Camembert and Dr. Fusion scheming to alter weather patterns and take over the local hangout -- and then the world.

Directed by Jeffrey Hornaday (Disney Channel's "Geek Charming," choreographer of "A Chorus Line," "Flashdance") and choreographed by Hornaday and Christopher Scott ("Lemonade Mouth," "Step Up 4"), the movie includes retro hairstyles and make-up (by Loida Jeannot and Dominique Borrell, respectively), richly-hued vintage wardrobe designed by Oscar nominee Ruth Carter ("Amistad," "Malcolm X") and other inspirations of the '60s. The score is by David Lawrence ("High School Musical"). The production design is by Mark Hofeling ("High School Musical").

The story is by Vince Marcello (director, featurette version of the off-Broadway musical "Zombie Prom," and "An American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars") & Mark Landry, and the teleplay is by Marcello, Landry and Robert Horn (writer of "Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure," writer of Broadway's "13" and writer/producer of "Designing Women"). David Buelow ("Bring It On: Fight to the Finish") is the executive producer and Robert F. Phillips ("Teen Spirit," "Valkyrie") is the producer. "Teen Beach Movie" is a production of Rainforest Productions, LLC.

The movie stars Ross Lynch (Disney Channel's "Austin & Ally") as Brady, Maia Mitchell (ABC Family's "The Fosters") as McKenzie, Grace Phipps (ABC Family's "The Nine Lives of Chloe King") as Lela, Garrett Clayton as Tanner, John Deluca as Butchy, Chrissie Fit (ABC's "General Hospital") as Cheechee, Jordan Fisher as Seacat, Mollee Gray (Disney Channel's "High School Musical") as Giggles, Kent Boyd as Rascal, William T. Loftis as Lugnut, Jessica Lee Keller as Struts, Kevin Chamberlin (Disney Channel's "Jessie," Broadway's "The Addams Family") as Dr. Fusion and Steve Valentine (Disney Channel's "Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie," Disney XD's "I'm In The Band") as Les Camembert. Suzanne Cryer is Aunt Antoinette and Barry Bostwick makes a special appearance as Big Poppa.
