Today, Disney+ announced another year of spooky programming for Hallowstream with exciting new originals and beloved Halloween classics. Along with the announcement, it was revealed that the Disney Channel Original Movie “Under Wraps” will release on Disney+ on Friday, October 8th. The movie will first premiere on the Disney Channel in the United States on Friday, October 1 (8:00 p.m. EDT/PDT).
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.
