Last week, we reported (Via The Dis Insider) that Disney is working on a third “Zombies” movie. Today, Disney officially confirmed the project and announced that production is scheduled to begin later this spring in Toronto.
“After the enormous success of ZOMBIES 2, we wanted to raise the stakes in this third and final instalment,” said Lauren Kisilevsky, vice president, Original Movies, Disney Branded Television. “So when the ultimate outsiders descend on Seabrook, our team of cheerleaders, zombies, and werewolves must band together to face a threat of galactic proportions that may change the face of Seabrook forever.”
In ZOMBIES 3, Zed and Addison are beginning their final year at Seabrook High in the town that’s become a safe haven for monsters and humans alike. Zed is anticipating an athletic scholarship that will make him the first Zombie to attend college, while Addison is gearing up for Seabrook’s first international cheer-off competition. Then, suddenly, extraterrestrial beings appear around Seabrook, provoking something other than friendly competition.
DGA Award winner Paul Hoen, who’s directed a record-setting 15 Disney Channel Original Movies, including both ZOMBIES instalments, will direct the “trequel” from a screenplay by David Light and Joseph Raso. Light, Raso, and Suzanne Farwell serve as executive producers.
Zombies 1 & 2 are both available to stream on Disney+. Disney hasn’t announced a release date just yet.
