Disney Channel Sets June ‘Teen Beach 2’ Premiere

Disney Channel will debut in June the sequel to its successful Teen Beach 2 original movie, the network said Wednesday.

Teen Beach 2 will premiere on Disney Channel June 26, but will be available a week earlier on the WATCH Disney Channel app and WATCHDisneyChannel.com, said network officials. Ross Lynch (Austin & Ally) and Maia Mitchell (The Fosters) will reprise their roles from the first film, which finished as the network’s second highest-rated movie.

On the same day Disney will release the Teen Beach 2 DVD, featuring never-before-seen dance rehearsal bonus feature and an exclusive friendship necklace.

On June 27, the movie will be available for download purchase on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play, Disney said.

Teen Beach 2 will also provide a lead in to the network’s new original series Best Friends Whenever, which stars Lauren Taylor (Richie Rich) and Landry Bender (Disney XD's Crash & Bernstein) as time traveling teen best friends, said network officials.
