SCHOOL'S OUT, SURF'S UP AND KIDS AND FAMILIES ARE INVITED TO DIVE IN TO "TEEN BEACH MOVIE," A "BREAK INTO SONG AND DANCE" DISNEY CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERING FRIDAY, JULY 19

-- Exclusive Movie Trailer Debuts Friday, March 15 on Disney.com and Disney Channel--

Disney Channel -- which introduced a generation of kids and tweens to movie musicals -- will premiere the highly anticipated "Teen Beach Movie," a modern take on classic beach party movies, FRIDAY, JULY 19 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT). The movie trailer will debut exclusively on Disney.com (3:00 a.m., ET/12:00 a.m. PT) and on Disney Channel (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on FRIDAY, MARCH 15.

Starring are Ross Lynch (of Disney Channel's "Austin & Ally" and Hollywood Records' R5) and Maia Mitchell (ABC Family's upcoming "The Fosters") as Brady and McKenzie, surfers who take the last wave of summer, one that mysteriously takes them into a classic beach party movie, Wet Side Story. There, it's surfers versus bikers for control of the beach hangout... and everyone spontaneously breaks into song and dance. Brady and McKenzie must try to return to present day, but their lives may be changed forever when they inadvertently change the movie's romantic storyline -- and the movie's handsome surf guy, Tanner, is falling for McKenzie while biker girl Lela is swooning for Brady.

"Teen Beach Movie" also stars: Grace Phipps (ABC Family's "The Nine Lives of Chloe King") as Lela, Garrett Clayton as Tanner, John Deluca as Butchy, Chrissie Fit ("General Hospital") as Cheechee, with Tony Award-nominated Kevin Chamberlin ("Jessie," Broadway's "The Addams Family") as Dr. Fusion and Steve Valentine ("Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie," Disney XD's "I'm In The Band") as Les Camembert.

Leading up to the premiere, Disney Channel SVOD and verified WATCH Disney Channel users will be treated to a first look at "Teen Beach Movie" beginning MONDAY, JULY 15. The movie's soundtrack, 12 songs influenced by surf rock, Motown R&B, rockabilly and pop, will be available from Walt Disney Records TUESDAY, JULY 16 on iTunes and in stores nationwide. Acclaimed songwriters and producers Antonina Armato & Tim James, Jeannie Lurie, Aris Archontis, Chen Neeman, David Lawrence & Faye Greenberg, Ali Dee, Mitch Allan, Jason Evigan and Nikki Leonti contributed to the soundtrack.

The movie is directed by DGA-nominated Jeffrey Hornaday (Disney Channel's "Geek Charming," choreographer of "A Chorus Line," "Flashdance") who also choreographed with Chris Scott ("Lemonade Mouth," "Step Up 4," "So You Think You Can Dance").
