Who knew that the most anticipated summer movie for teens and tweens would be Teen Beach 2, a Disney Channel made-for-TV sequel to the 2013 hit Teen Beach movie.

Hitting the beach again are Brady (Ross Lynch – Austin and Ally) and Mack (Maia Mitchell – The Fosters) and their fun loving surfer and biker pals from Brady’s favorite 60’s film Wet Side Story. (Yes, that’s right.)

As with most good Disney movies, TB2 offers singing, cute characters, boyfriend / girlfriend relationships, friendship and some fun dance numbers which are reminiscent of Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon’s 60’s beach classics.  Though the film basically starts where the other left off, there is definitely more drama for Mack and Brady as the surfing duo heads back to school.

When Lela (Grace Phipps) finds the necklace she gave Mack, she and Tanner (Garrett Clayton) head out into the ocean to find their friends.  Unlike the first movie, this time they end up in the present day and they stick out big time!  The remainder of the film is filled with Brady and Mack trying to hide their friends identities (which eventually includes the whole crew of bikers and surfers) from the real world and get them back to their own world before they disappear.

TB2 turns out to be cute and extremely enjoyable for the Disney crowd, many of whom have already watched it over and over in the first two days.  As with all Disney films – there are important lessons to be learned and like so many Disney films before, it’s all about friendship and self confidence.

Teen Beach 2 was also released on DVD and offers extras including a free replica of Lela’s friendship necklace from Mack and never before seen bonus rehearsal footage.
