We’re only a few days out until the world premiere of Zombies 2, and Celeb Secrets is giving you exclusive interviews from the cast every day leading up to its big debut!
Cheerleader Addison (Meg Donnelly), zombie football player Zed (Milo Manheim) and the rest of the humans and zombies are officially back this Friday for Zombies 2 and while things may be moving in the right direction for the zombies, a new group of monsters are thrown into the mix and cause some drama that’s an absolute must-see.
The highly-anticipated sequel picks up with Addison (Donnelly) and zombie football player Zed (Manheim) 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.
Celeb Secrets had the opportunity to sit down with cast members Milo Manheim, Meg Donnelly, Chandler Kinney, Pearce Joza and Baby Ariel to talk about what’s to come from the highly-anticipated sequel. Filled with even more songs, dances and cheer routines, the cast also touched on the new monsters at Seabrook — the werewolves — and how they can relate to anyone that watches the film.
“When we read the script, I was just super looking forward to seeing who was going to portray the werewolves,” Manheim tells Celeb Secrets “When we met [Chandler, Pearce and Ariel,] they were perfect. The dynamic that they bring is so great.”
“Even outside of set we are a big family,” Donnelly adds.
“The werewolves represent individuality and authenticity; And standing in who you are and being proud of that,” Kinney shares. “There’s also themes of self-acceptance and being in the new group [in this film], and these are all feelings everyone has experienced before. It’s fun, lighthearted, and a blast to watch, but it’s something that everyone needs to see and can relate to.”
