Today, Disney Branded Television unveiled its fall and winter premiere dates for new original movies and series on Disney Channel and Disney Junior. The Disney Channel Original Movie “Under Wraps” will premiere Friday, October 1 (8:00 p.m. EDT/PDT) on the Disney Channel.
A Disney+ release date has not been announced yet, but we expect the show to arrive on the streaming service in the United States and internationally once it airs on Disney Channel.
The contemporary comedic remake of the 1997 Halloween classic of the same name follows three 12-year-old friends, Marshall, Gilbert and Amy. They happen upon and awaken a mummy, which they affectionately name Harold, and must rush to return him to his resting place before midnight on Halloween. Along the way, the team narrowly escapes a nefarious group of criminals intent on selling the mummy to the highest bidder. When Harold is inevitably captured, Marshall, Gilbert and Amy must band together to stand up to the criminals, face their fears and rescue their new—but rather “ancient”—friend.
Starring is Malachi Barton as Marshall, Christian J. Simon as Gilbert, Sophia Hammons as Amy, Phil Wright as Harold, Melanie Brook as Buzzy, Brent Stait as Kubot, Jordana Largy as Diane, Jaime M. Callica as Ted and Karin Konoval as Ravensworth.
