Movie Synopsis: Empowering themes of self-expression are central to the fantastical music- and dance-driven story of “Teen Beach 2,” the highly anticipated sequel to “Teen Beach Movie,” the Disney Channel Original Movie that, with its 2013 premiere telecast, ranks as the second-highest-rated cable television movie of all time. In a new story that will appeal to multiple generations, the sequel, set in a present-day high school, depicts the twists and turns of four kindred spirits.

Reprising their singing and dancing roles is the multitalented young cast led by actor and recording artist Ross Lynch (Disney Channel’s “Austin & Ally,” Hollywood Records’ R5) and actress Maia Mitchell (ABC Family’s “The Fosters”) as surfing sweethearts Brady and McKenzie (“Mack”).

The story picks up at the close of summer after Mack and Brady return from the wild adventure that transported them into Brady’s favorite 1960s beach party movie, “Wet Side Story.” Now, with surf season over and high school back in session, laid-back Brady and studious Mack begin to discover their differences. While Mack is focused on getting into the best college to study Oceanography, Brady is secretly delving into his creative passion – making surfboards – a secret that begins to drive a wedge between the couple.

A fresh breeze heads their way with a surprise real-world visit from their 1960s silver screen friends, Lela and Tanner, who have remarkably departed “Wet Side Story,” quickly followed by their 1960s bikers and surfer friends led by Butchy, Cheechee and Seacat. Knowing first-hand that the “real” world and the movie world don’t mix, Mack and Brady do their best to convince Lela and Tanner to return to what they know, but Lela is reluctant to give up the sense of individualism and empowerment she’s afforded in Mack and Brady’s present-day world.

In a race against time, the four friends must quickly hatch a plan to save the rest of the “Wet Side Story” cast who have started disappearing into thin air. With no waves in sight, Brady puts his one-of-a-kind surf board creation to the test in order to transport Lela and Tanner back to their movie world.

Also reprising their starring roles are Grace Phipps as Lela, Garrett Clayton as Tanner, John DeLuca as Butchy, Chrissie Fit as Cheechee, Jordan Fisher as Seacat, Mollee Gray as Giggles, Kent Boyd as Rascal, William T. Loftis as Lugnut and Jessica Lee Keller as Struts. Joining the cast are Piper Curda (Disney Channel’s “I Didn’t Do It”) as Mack’s best friend, Alyssa; Ross Butler as Mack’s classmate Spencer; and Raymond Cham, Jr. as Brady’s best friend, Devon.

Celebrating the sounds of the 1960s, “Teen Beach 2″ features seven original songs, as well as a cover and reprises of popular songs from “Teen Beach Movie” – “Falling For Ya” and “Meant to Be,” respectively. The composer is David Lawrence and the talented songwriters and producers include Mitch Allan (Kelly Clarkson’s “Piece By Piece”), Dan Book (Demi Lovato’s “Heart Attack”) and Nikki Leonti, among others. Additionally, “Teen Beach 2″ star Ross Lynch co-wrote the movie’s contemporary acoustic ballad “On My Own” with his R5 band mates, Rocky Lynch, Riker Lynch and Ellington Ratliff, along with notable songwriter Evan Bogart (Beyonce’s “Halo”).
