Read on to find out how Garrett would plot out ‘Teen Beach Movie 2.’ His ideas are kind of brilliant!
It’s really not a matter of if Disney Channel will produce a sequel to its smash hit Teen Beach Movie, but rather, when the network will decide to grow the franchise. So when we ran into star Garrett Clayton at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards on Aug. 11, we couldn’t help but pick his brain for sequel story ideas. And once we reached his brain — you know, through all those layers of incredible hair — Garrett gave us gold.
Here’s Garrett’s admittedly work-able idea for how the singing-dancing surfers’ adventures could continue:
We would be in the real world and all become humanized. Then, Mac and Brady would gain musical ability, and gradually, we’d lose our musical ability because we’re becoming so real. Basically, we’d be having thoughts and feelings, and we’d be exploring and discovering things. And imagine if some characters could go back, and other characters know too much that they can’t return — or don’t want to return!
Did you catch all that? In a nutshell, Garrett would love to see the first movie reversed, with the Wet Side Story characters experiencing what our world is like — and considering that’s exactly how the first movie ended, I’d say it makes a lot of sense!
Garrett Clayton: Working On His Debut Album?
Garrett may have sung his way into our hearts as beach-bum Tanner, but don’t expect to see his debut album on shelves — or iTunes, whatever — anytime soon.
“I’m not gunning for it, but I don’t think I would say no,” he admitted. “If it came naturally, or it was my choice and it was something natural … I [just] wouldn’t want to force anything!”
I think that’s a smart move on Garrett’s part, though I’ll also be first in line for his album if he decides to change his mind.
