ZACK & CODY CONTINUE THE 'SUITE' ADVENTURE WITH THE PREMIERE OF "THE SUITE LIFE MOVIE," FRIDAY, MARCH 25 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

Multiplatform Roll-out Includes Disney Channel on Demand, iTunes and Netflix Watch Instantly

Television's popular teen twins Zack and Cody, the longest running continuous characters on Disney Channel, are at the center of the comedy and adventure in the third iteration of their powerhouse "Suite Life" franchise, "The Suite Life Movie," premiering FRIDAY, MARCH 25 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) as part of the hugely successful Disney Channel Original Movie franchise. Reprising their series roles are Dylan Sprouse and Cole Sprouse, who also executive-produce the movie, Brenda Song (of the Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated film "The Social Network"), Debby Ryan, Matthew Timmons and Phill Lewis.

A January 2011 telecast of "The Suite Life on Deck" ranks as its No. 1 telecast of all time in Total Viewers (7.1 million) and its No. 2 telecast ever in Kids 6-11 (2.9 million/11.6 rating) and Tweens 9-14 (2.6 million/10.6 rating). The series is the No. 1 TV show in its timeslot (Fridays at 8:00 p.m.) among Kids 6-14, and season to date against all TV programs ranks No. 2 among Kids 6-11 and No. 3 among Tweens 9-14.

In the U.S., across all basic cable, Disney Channel Original Movies dominate the ratings, and have produced basic cable's No. 1 original movie telecast among Kids 6-11 for eight of the past nine years, and for nine consecutive years among Tweens 9-14.

"The Suite Life on Deck" premiered in 2008 as a spin-off of "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody" which premiered in 2005.

Filmed on location in Vancouver, Canada, the comedy adventure movie takes place during spring break as Cody gets an opportunity to participate in a prestigious internship program. However, when twin brother Zack destroys billion-dollar scientific equipment, Cody is kicked out of the program. Soon thereafter, the brothers are approached to join the Gemini Project, a high-tech research center studying the dynamics between twins. Shockingly, they find themselves interconnected in a way they've never been before: When one twin experiences a sensation, thought or feeling, the other twin feels it too. While this newfound revelation helps the boys see eye to eye for the first time, it puts them in more danger than they could have imagined.

The premiere schedule is as follows:

TUESDAY, MARCH 22:

"The Suite Life Movie" preview becomes available via Disney Channel On Demand, a video-on-demand service available to a variety of affiliates including Cablevision, Time Warner and Verizon FiOS TV customers.

"The Suite Life Movie" was directed by Sean McNamara (executive producer of "Even Stevens," producer of "That's So Raven," director of "Zeke and Luther"); executive-produced by Pamela Eells O'Connell ("The Suite Life on Deck," "Family Matters"), Irene Dreayer ("The Suite Life on Deck," "Sister, Sister"), Jessica Rhoades ("Den Brother"), Cole Sprouse and Dylan Sprouse; and produced by Tracey Jeffrey ("Psych"). The movie was created by Danny Kallis ("The Suite Life on Deck," "Who's The Boss?") and Jim Geoghan ("The Suite Life on Deck," "Family Matters"), and developed by Danny Kallis and Pamela Eells O'Connell.
