Teen Beach Movie has made quite the splash. My daughter forced me to watch this movie. It wasn’t as bad as I thought. Disney has been marketing this movie like crazy so I am not shocked to hear that it broke ratings records.
The Disney Channel musical about modern-day teenage surfers trapped inside of a ’60s-era beach film was seen by 8.4 million viewers, according to Disney Channel. That makes it the fifth highest-rated made-for-TV Disney movie of all time, and No. 3 among kids 2-11, behind High School Musical 2 and Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie.
“Teen Beach Movie” was the top original movie premiere in more than four years, Disney says. The premiere of 2006’s High School Musical only drew 7.7 million viewers.
So you probably want to know if there is sequel coming? Well director Jeffrey Hornaday told USA TODAY, “I’d direct this movie for the rest of my life.” But Disney Channel Vice President Jennilee Cummings said before the movie’s premiere that it was “too early to tell”.
“Teen Beach Movie” fans can purchase the album, which currently is climbing the charts on iTunes, and order the DVD (out July 30).
Did you watch this movie with the kiddos? What did you think?
Wishing you Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust
