We’re only a few weeks away until the world premiere of Zombies 2, and we can’t contain our excitement!
Earlier this month, Disney Channel dropped the music video for the film’s explosive opening number “We Got This,” and now we’re able to see what it was like to film thanks to a brand-new behind-the-scenes video that dropped on the network’s YouTube channel on Friday (January 17).
Sticking to the theme of inclusion and acceptance, the “We Got This” music video shows Addison (Meg Donnelly) at cheer camp with her human and zombie friends, while Zed (Milo Manheim) dreams of taking Addison to “Prawn” back at Seabrook.
“It gets you hype, and it gets you wanting to dance,” Manheim says of “We Got This.”
In the behind-the-scenes video below, you get to see the entire cast together filming some of the visual’s best moments, including cheer routines, riding zip lines, playing in a giant mud pit and more.
“The cheer moves are very complicated, because it has to be so precise and perfect,” Meg says in the clip. “But when you get it, it’s so much fun.”
Zombies 2 the highly anticipated sequel to Zombies is a music- and dance-filled story that picks up as cheerleader Addison (Donnelly) and zombie football player Zed (Manheim) are readying for Seabrook High’s Prawn, the school’s super-sized prom. However, when a group of mysterious teenage werewolves, led by Willa (Chandler Kinney), Wyatt (Pearce Joza)and Wynter (Baby Ariel), unexpectedly arrive in search of an ancient life source buried somewhere in Seabrook, a fearful city council reenacts Seabrook’s anti-monster laws, making it impossible for Zed and Addison to attend prom together.
Determined to keep their plan to be the first zombie/cheerleader couple to go to the prom, Zed runs for school president. Meanwhile, Addison is drawn into the werewolves’ circle, causing a rift between her and Zed.
Fearing he might lose Addison to the werewolf pack, Zed sabotages Addison’s effort to find out if she really belongs amongst them. When his deception is revealed and Addison confronts the truth about her identity, zombies, cheerleaders and werewolves all discover the real meaning of community and acceptance.
Check out the full BTS video from “We Got This” below and make sure to catch Zombies 2 on Friday, February 14th @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.
