Not too long ago I found myself listening to a little original movie called Disney Zombies, as it was on the television in the other room, courtesy of my 10-year old daughter. I found myself humming along. I love all things Disney, but zombies? I wasn’t sure…so I had to take a peek, and once I did, I sat and watched the entire movie. Today, I’ll share why!

About Disney Zombies…
Disney Zombies is a music- and dance-filled story set in the fictitious world of Seabrook, a cookie-cutter community brimming with perky conformity 50 years after a zombie apocalypse. Today, the zombies pose no threat, but are required to live in Zombietown, an isolated, rundown community infused with their unique creative spirit. When zombies are finally allowed to enroll in Seabrook High School, the charming, charismatic zombie Zed, who is determined to play football, meets freshman Addison who dreams of being a cheerleader — the ultimate form of status in Seabrook.
Addison takes a lot of flak for befriending Zed and his zombie friends, but comes to learn that zombies and cheerleaders aren’t so different after all.
Top Things We Love About Disney Zombies
Featuring Milo Manheim as Zed; Meg Donnelly as Addison; Trevor Tordjman as Bucky; Kylee Russell as Eliza; Carla Jeffery as Bree; Kingston Foster as Zoey; and James Godfrey as Bonzo. This cast is incredible and though there are zombies, they aren’t the scary kind, trust me! I don’t do scary.
In a time when we work hard to teach our children about inclusion (a message that many adults need to hear also), Disney Zombies is a fun reminder of this all to important lesson. Zed and Addison work together to show Seabrook what they can achieve when they embrace their differences and celebrate what makes them a community. Whether “zombie” or “normal”, they can not only be friends, but learn to value each other.
As if the cast and the message wasn’t already good enough, it was the music which sold me. I was tapping my feet and truth be told, my daughter has caught me listening to the original soundtrack more times than I can count.
Disney Zombies follows the huge successes of other musical hits from Disney including High School Musical and Descendants.
