Disney Channel’s authentic film musical Zombies is coming again for a sequel, and this time, there’s a new supernatural group on the town. Whereas the first movie paperwork the star-crossed love story of a zombie named Zed (Milo Manheim) and a human cheerleader named Addison (Meg Donnelly) as they try and deliver their communities collectively, the upcoming movie, which premieres on Feb. 14, showcases the arrival of werewolves. Let’s simply say, they are not so prepared to make good.
Becoming a member of the solid as a kind of werewolves is social media character, singer, and actress Baby Ariel. The 19-year-old, whose actual identify is Ariel Martin, stars as Wynter, a “very passionate, very emotional, very loving” werewolf whose foremost precedence is defending her pack. “Her pack is number one, her family’s number one, the werewolves come first for her,” Martin informed POPSUGAR. “Because she cares so much, sometimes she doesn’t know how to handle those emotions and [she] can get very angry very quick, very soft very quick, and very happy [very quick]. She’s all over the place, but it’s because she cares and has the biggest heart.”
Being a large fan of the first movie, Martin was keen to affix the franchise. “I was just over the moon excited,” she mentioned about touchdown the a part of Wynter. It additionally helped that the returning solid made her really feel proper at dwelling. “They made us feel like a family the second we stepped in,” she mentioned. “We had a month of rehearsal before we started filming, which was great because instead of being on set every day right away, we got the chance to bond during dance rehearsals and go out to eat. We had game nights every single day from the second we got there. We bonded so much. We really became a big family, and that I think also translated into the movie.”
Martin additionally bought to have a few of her costars in her new music video for “The New Kid in Town,” which shall be featured on the Zombies 2 soundtrack. In POPSUGAR’s unique first look, Martin may be seen sitting in a diner with Meg Donnelly, Pearce Joza, and Chandler Kinney as she gushes about a thriller man. “It was nice filming something different with them,” Martin mentioned about the Quinn Wilson-directed music video. “I’ve gotten so used to filming Zombies with them, but now to be in a whole different environment we’re in this cute little diner, we’re dancing, we’re wondering who this boy is to be able to do it with my best friends was awesome.”
Just as the first movie unfold the message of acceptance, Martin hopes her character Wynter evokes her followers to be their genuine self. “What I was really attracted to about Wynter and all of the werewolves was that they were never afraid to be themselves,” she mentioned. “She’s not afraid to look silly sometimes. She’s not afraid to go in there and scream or cry or laugh or do whatever she needs. I hope that inspires a lot of other people to say, ‘You know what? I want to love me. I’m going to accept me for who I am and not care what anybody else thinks,’ just like the werewolves, and zombies, and the humans.”
