Last week, it was revealed that the third entry in the popular Zombies franchise will make its debut on Disney+. Today, some new information on the project has been revealed.
According to Film Music Reporter, composers George S. Clinton and Amit May Cohen are set to score Zombies 3. Clinton scored the original 2018 Zombies movie and teamed up with Cohen for the 2020 sequel, Zombies 2.
Zombies 3 stars Milo Manheim as zombie Zed and Meg Donnelly as cheerleader Addison, who are beginning their senior 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. Then suddenly, extraterrestrial beings arrive in Seabrook, provoking something other than friendly competition. The movie also stars Chandler Kinney as Willa, Ariel Martin as Wynter, Pearce Joza as Wyatt, Carla Jeffery as Bree, Trevor Tordjman as Bucky, Kylee Russell as Eliza, Terry Hu as A-spen, Matt Cornett as A-lan, Kyra Tantao as A-li, James Godfrey as Bonzo and Kingston Foster as Zoey.
The multi-talented actor/host/recording artist RuPaul Charles (RuPaul’s Drag Race) joins the cast as the voice of “The Mothership,” a comedically passive-aggressive UFO that brings the aliens to earth.
The movie soundtrack features eight new song and dance numbers that shake things up by leaning into current trends while encompassing an “out-of-this world” sound. The song “Alien Invasion” kicks things off with a sci-fi vibe and electronic track that evokes “Close Encounters,” while new songs for Zed and Addison — including a third rendition of their hit duet “Someday” — reflect how their characters have grown and changed. Meanwhile, the werewolves pursue the Aliens in “Come On Out,” an edgy song with a suspenseful feel.
DGA Award-winner Paul Hoen, who has directed a record-setting 15 Disney Channel Original Movies (The Luck of the Irish, Jump In, Let it Shine, Camp Rock 2, and both Zombies hits among them), directed Zombies 3 from a screenplay by David Light and Joseph Raso (nominees for a Humanitas Prize for Zombies). Light, Raso, and Suzanne Farwell (Disney’s Upside Down Magic) are executive producers.
The much-anticipated third story in Disney Branded Television’s beloved musical franchise, will premiere globally on Friday, July 15 exclusively streaming on Disney+.
