‘Zombies 3’ Will be a Disney+ Original Movie, RuPaul Joins The Cast
Zombies is one of Disney Channel’s biggest franchises, but now the third entry will now make the move to Disney+.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Emmy-winning RuPaul’s Drag Race icon, RuPaul, has joined Milo Manheim and Meg Donnelly among the cast of Disney’s Zombies 3. The third movie is now set to debut on Disney+ July 15.
Zombies 3 follows a group of space aliens who infiltrate the student body of zombies, cheerleaders, and werewolves at the series’ Seabrook High, with RuPaul set to voice The Mothership, a “comedically passive-aggressive UFO” that brings the aliens to earth.
Manheim and Donnelly return to the musical series as the zombie Zed and cheerleader Addison, respectively, who begin their senior year at the monstrous safehaven of Seabrook. In the film, Zed is eyeing an athletic scholarship that wouuld make him the first zombie to attend university, with Addison preparing for the school’s first international cheer-off. Their plans are diverted when the aliens — under the direction of RuPaul’s Mothership — arrive and, according to Disney, stoke “something other than friendly competition.”
Also returning for the movie is Chandler Kinney (Willa), Pearce Joza (Wyatt), and Ariel Martin (Wynter) as the werewolves; Trevor Tordjman as cheerleader Bucky; Carla Jeffery as cheerleader Bree; and Kylee Russell (Eliza), James Godfrey (Bonzo) and Kingston Foster (Zoey) as lovable zombies. Paul Hoen, who directed the first three films in the franchise returns to direct.
