Fans of the Disney Channel Original Movie Zombies franchise will be treated to brand new original programming with the debut of the music video for “More than a Mystery,” performed by multi-talented star Meg Donnelly. They will also premiere the eight-episode series of animated shorts, “Addison’s Moonstone Mystery,” on FRIDAY, OCT. 16 (7:54 p.m. EDT/PDT), following the “ZOMBIES 2” Werewolf Stories event encore, on Disney Channel and on DisneyNOW. 

The shorts will be voiced by “ZOMBIES 2” stars, including Milo Manheim and Donnelly, and will introduce two new songs, “You Do You” and “Feelin’ the Power” as well as a brand-new character, Vanna.

In addition to Donnelly and Manheim, also lending their voices to the shorts are “ZOMBIES 2” stars Kylee Russell (Eliza), Chandler Kinney (Willa), Pearce Joza (Wyatt) and Ariel Martin (Wynter).

In Zombies 2, Addison (Donnelly) searches to find out where she belongs after learning she’s not a werewolf. She discovers that doesn’t make her less special though, because while fans have yet to learn her origins, since she might not be fully ‘human’, she is still unique!

The upbeat music video “More Than a Mystery,” which introduces the shorts, imagines Addison’s journey through a mysterious dreamscape as she searches for her true identity. “Addison’s Moonstone Mystery” shorts feature the beloved characters from the “ZOMBIES” franchise in a humorous, fast-paced animated adventure. The story begins at Seabrook High, where zombies, werewolves and humans all coexista4e happily. A new girl at school, Vanna, whom Addison immediately befriends, threatens to shake up the dynamic when they learn that she is not all that she seems. The series also introduces two brand new songs: “You Do You,” an upbeat rap battle and “Feelin’ the Power,” an electronic rock anthem illustrating that great things can be accomplished when everyone works together.  

“More Than a Mystery” will also debut October 16 on Disney Music VEVO and an EP featuring all three new songs, titled “Zombies: Addison’s Moonstone Mystery” will also be released on Walt Disney Records. 

“Addison’s Moonstone Mystery” shorts were directed and produced by the Disney Channel Multiplatform team.

Tune in on October 16th to have an extremely happy Halloween!
