Zendaya Returns To Disney Channel With ‘Zapped’ — Hilarious First Look

Wed, March 26, 2014 3:52pm EST by 25 Comments

Great news, ‘Shake It Up’ fans — Rocky Blue is back! A little over a year since the Disney Channel cancelled the hit show ‘Shake It Up’ (co-starring Bella Thorne), the Mickey Mouse Channel is welcoming Zendaya back to the network with a starring role in her own original movie, ‘Zapped!’ Read on to watch the first teaser!

Zendaya already conquered summer 2013 with her hit song “Replay,” and now she’s poised to become the new Queen of the Disney Channel! A year after Shake It Up, her show with Bella Thorne, went off the air, the 17-year-old is back with her own original movie, Zapped!

‘Zapped’ — Zendaya Shows Off Her Sick Dance Moves

So what’s Zapped about? Well, the movie centers on a sixteen-year-old girl named Zoey Stevens (Zendaya), a skilled dancer and straight-A student who has to deal with a bunch of problems all at once: she has to adjust to a new high school, a new dance squad, a new step-dad, three new rowdy step-brothers and an uncontrollable dog. (Whoa, that’s a lot to deal with for a teenager!)

We love that Zapped will give Zendaya the opportunity to show off her amazing physical comedy talents (she’s like the Jaleel White of a new generation!), but we also love that the former Dancing with the Stars contestant (and singer) will get to put her fierce dance moves on display (make sure to see her busting a move in the trailer above!).

The movie is also a huge opportunity for the triple threat. She co-headlined Shake It Up for 75 episodes, but now she’s all on her own, leading up a Disney Original movie — this is the big leagues.

So HollywoodLifers, are you happy to see Zendaya back on the Disney Channel? Dish in the comments below!

OMG! It will be fantastic! I’m looking forward to see the first episode! I love her, because she’s sooo talented! She’s a wonderful singer (she sings like an angel :’))), a great actress and especially – an incredible dancer! Nobody can dance like she does it. Her moves… This is not to describe

I absolutely love zendaya but I have to be honest a bit… this just doesn’t seem like a great movie. I think a lot of the reason people will watch it is just for the fact that Zendaya is in it. I feel like Zendaya is really starting to expand her career in a more bigger adult way and this movie just feels a bit misplaced. like this movie should have aired right after her show got cancelled. For whatever reason disney has sort of lost its spark a bit. Disney use to have such amazing movies and shows like, that’s so raven, Lizzy McGuire, Phil of the future, wizards of Waverly place, etc. Now every show or movie just seems really cliche and lacking in the humor department. Almost like the writers of the shows are trying too hard to add humor to a show and at the end of it you find yourself saying ‘wow that was a really lame joke.’ It’s gotten to the point where even little kids seem kinda confused and its a kids network! My ten year old niece actually said she thought that spongebob squarepants was more funny then that one show antfarm. I get what they are trying to do with adding a new cool dance twist but it’s been done before! There was that one movie starstruck that had an alright cute story line but it’s like they are still trying to come up with the next high school musical! I’m sorry but camp rock was as close as they are ever gonna get and zapped is falling into that watch it once and then you realize how cheesy it is. Like I said I am a huge zendaya fan and I actually liked shake it up and voted for her on DWTS but this movie just feels like it’s coming out a little late.

I feel the same exact way. I’ve been saying disney channel used to be my favorite channel no matter what, but now the only time i EVER watch it is when my little sister is watching t. I really understand and feel the same exact way. I just hope zapped doesn’t fall into their cheesy lack of humor categor
