Production has just wrapped on Disney’s “The Suite Life Movie,” a Disney Channel Original Movie based on the beloved, original comedy series for Disney, “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” and its high seas spinoff, “The Suite Life on Deck.” The “Suite Life” movie will premiere in 2011 on the Disney Channel. The movie will star Cole & Dylan Sprouse, Brenda Song, Debby Ryan and Phill Lewis and will premiere next year. The show also recently wrapped it’s third season.
“The Suite Life Movie” is the 7th Disney Channel Original Movie. The last recent original movie was “Wizards of Waverly Place the Movie,” which ranked as 2009’s No. 1 scripted cable TV telecast among Total Viewers (13.5 million), and TV’s No. 1 telecast among Kids 6-11 (5.32 million), and its No. 1 scripted telecast among Tweens 9-14 (4.64 million).
The story revolves around teenage twins Cody and Zack Martin who receive an opportunity to participate in the prestigious Gemini Project at a high-tech research center that studies the dynamics between twins. The boys find themselves connected in a way they’ve never been before: As one twin experiences a sensation, thought or feeling, the other twin feels it too. This newly found power helps the boys see eye-to-eye for the first time, but it ultimately puts them in unforeseen danger.
