It’s almost time for ‘Teen Beach 2,’ and you better be excited. Both Ross Lynch and Maia Mitchell chatted with HollywoodLife.com exclusively about how much fun they had making the sequel — and basically, we’re convinced!
With Teen Beach 2 taking over Disney Channel in just one day, we had to you give you some inside information, right? Well HollywoodLife.com was on set last summer with the cast, and let’s just say — they really worked hard to get this to be perfect (and it totally is). So we can tell you what Ross Lynch does in between takes, and what Maia Mitchell was snacking on. Plus, find out what they told us was “really special” about the entire thing.
“Returning for the sequel was really fun, because we’ve all stayed friends since working on Teen Beach Movie,” Maia told us about returning as Mack. Additionally, Ross chimed in about his role — and why he’s all about the music. “I love being in the musical number world,” he told us. “There’s something really special about breaking into song.” This doesn’t come as a surprise to us, since Ross is usually found singing with his band R5, when he’s not on the beach.
And when he is — he’s reading. Yes, that’s right. We were there when the team was shooting in Puerto Rico last summer and in between scenes, Ross would pop a squat and read a good book! Grace Phipps does the same as she actually brought books with her to keep in her trailer! As for Maia, well we can tell that she’s all about snacking! She was eating passionfruit sorbet with the dancers on the day we were there!
Watch a sneak peek of the movie above, then tune into Teen Beach 2: Back to the Beach on Friday, June 26 at 8 p.m. on Disney Channel!
