Let's face it, it wouldn't be summer without a day at the beach, a night at the movies, and a summer romance -- or better yet, all three! Disney has done just that with their latest tv movie, Teen Beach Movie, which premieres July 19, 2013 (8:00 p.m. ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Disney Channel sent us a load of beach-themed goodies so we could throw ourselves a beach party while watchingTeen Beach Movie on tv, and we're already getting into the beach party spirit! Check it out (the amazing photo edits are courtesy of The Pea!):

Teen Beach Movie channels the spirit of classic teen romance and beach movies like Grease, Gidget, Beach Blanket Bingo and West Side Story.... especially West Side Story. In fact, the two main characters, Brady and McKenzie, actually find themselves magically swept into a beach party movie with pretty much the same plot as West Side Story, except it's set on a beach -- so it's "Wet Side Story", get it? -- and the rival gangs are the Surfers and the Bikers instead of the Jets and the Sharks. It's a fun family flick that's sure to get everyone shimmying and shaking, so don't miss it!
About the movie
"Teen Beach Movie" follows teen surfing sweethearts Brady and McKenzie who together ride the last wave of summer, one that mysteriously takes them into a classic beach party movie, “Wet Side Story.” There, it's surfers versus bikers for control of the beach hangout…and everyone spontaneously breaks into song and dance. Now, Brady and McKenzie must try to return to present day, but their lives may be changed forever when they inadvertently alter the movie's romantic storyline when handsome surfer Tanner falls for McKenzie and biker girl Lela starts swooning for Brady.
"Teen Beach Movie" will premiere July 19, 2013 (8:00 p.m. ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Find out more on the Disney Channel website -- and don't forget to follow @DisneyChannelPR on Twitter and Instagram, and TeenBeachMovie on Pinterest using #TeenBeachMovie!
