Disney Channel has revealed details — and the key cast members — for an upcoming original movie.

Entitled “Zombies,” the music- and dance-filled story focuses on Seabrook High School, the pride-and-joy of a “town preoccupied with uniformity, traditions and pep rallies.”

Things change when students from Zombietown are integrated into the school and cheerleader Addison falls in love with zombie football player Zed.

“Now, amid chaos and confusion, it’s up to them to lead their community to coexistence.”

Production is underway on the film, which will premiere in 2018.

Jeffrey Hornaday is directing the “Zombies,” which is part of the “Disney Channel Original Movie” franchise. He also choreographs alongside Christopher Scott and executive produces alongside Effie Brown.

Meg Donnelly (ABC’s “American Housewife”) and Milo Manheim (“Ghost Whisperer”) star as Addison and Zed, respectively.

The cast also includes Trevor Tordjman (“The Next Step”) as Addison’s cousin and head cheerleader Bucky, Kylee Russell (“Jump In”) as Zed’s zombie best friend Eliza and Carla Jeffery (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) as Addison’s friend Bree.
