It's time to head back to the beach!
Teen Beach 2, the summer sequel to the 2013 hit Disney Channel 2013 hit telepic Teen Beach Movie, premieres Friday and it's guaranteed to make you shimmy and shake with excitement.
ETonline caught up with stars Maia Mitchell, Ross Lynch and the rest of the musical's talented cast at the Teen Beach 2 premiere earlier this week to bring you everything you need to know before tuning in.
In the first Teen Beach adventure, Mack (Mitchell) and Brady (Lynch) were magically transported into the beloved '60s movie Wet Side Story and forced to adjust to life in a musical, but now the flippers are on the other feet. Teen Beach 2 is all about what happens when big-screen characters Lela (Grace Phipps) and Tanner (Garrett Clayton) stumble upon the shores of Mack and Brady's present-day world.
"It's a fresh movie, it feels very different than from first one," Mitchell, who also stars on The Fosters, told ETonline. "So don’t be expecting a ton of sixties stuff -- it's definitely a fusion of modern and '60s styles."
In addition to the ridiculously catchy songs, Phipps said she's most excited for Teen Beach fans to watch another fun fish-out-of-water tale. "You can know that you're going to see the characters do the things that you probably have imagined them doing," the actress teased. "But you should know that there is going to be some good twists and turns."
The one thing viewers should definitely have by their side before tuning in? Tissues! "I would suggest having them," Phipps warned. "I cry at everything so I'm a bad example, but maybe have tissues on hand." Noted.
