Since its premiere, the Disney Channel Original Movie has reached over 137 million unduplicated viewers, and its soundtrack has sold 2.5 million CDs worldwide while | spending a remarkable 10 weeks in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart. The "Camp Rock Extended Rock Star Edition" was the #1 TV movie and the #1 Family TV title on DVD in 2008.

This summer of fun opens on a high-pitched Camp Rock reunion. All the Camp Rockers have returned, eager to tune up and rock out. Nobody's more excited than Mitchie, who anticipates more than a summer of music. Fresh from a world tour, the rock band Connect 3 are hanging all summer - Shane to pursue last summer's crush on Mitchie, his band mates as moral support. Guitar legend Brown Cesario, Camp Rock's owner, is ready to rock 'n roll.

But all is not copasetic at this rocking teen paradise. Across the lake glistens the new Camp Star: a high-tech, big-money music camp funded by Brown's former band mate-with-a-grudge, Axel Turner. Down-to-earth Camp Rock may have passion, talent and commitment, but Camp Star boasts resources, infrastructure and money -- enough money to poach Camp Rock's counselors and put Camp Rock out of business.

But Axel isn't counting on a natural born leader named Mitchie, who vows to save her beloved camp and her friends' summer. Clipboard in hand, she organizes the older Camp Rockers into counselors and keeps the camp running. Then Mitchie steps it up again� by challenging the egocentric Camp Star to a Final Jam -- an end-of-summer performance duel� may the best camp win.

Starring are Demi Lovato as Mitchie Torres, Joe Jonas as Shane Gray, Nick Jonas as Nate, Kevin Jonas as Jason, Alyson Stoner as Caitlyn Geller, Meaghan Martin as Tess Tyler, Jasmine Richards as Peggy, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle as Ella, Matthew "Mdot" Finley as Luke, Chloe Bridges as Dana Turner, Roshon Fegan as Sander, Jordan "J" Francis as Barron, Maria Canals-Barrera as Connie Torres, Daniel Fathers as Brown and Daniel Kash as Axel Turner.
