Only for the sequel to add a major mystery into the mix that could threaten their relationship's future... again. As we wait for Disney to confirm Zombies3, here's everything we know about the potential prequel and how the sequel sets it up.
If Disney Channel chooses to continue the story of Edison, then fans could expect to have to wait until 2022. With Seabrook High's Prawn around the corner, Zed and Addison's young love appeared to be in doubt after he stole a necklace that Addison thought would reveal her true self as a werewolf.
However, this being a Disney movie, it all worked out in the end after Zed apologized and realized he was being a bit of a dick towards the werewolves. Teaming up with the werewolves, the zombies gatecrash the Prawn and Zed apologizes to Addison.
That's not the end of Zombies 2 though as later that night a mysterious meteorite crashes in Seabrook, causing Addison's radio to turn on and wake her up. Milo Mannheim told Seventeen that he thinks the third movie could also see us meeting Zed's mother for the first time, while his co-stars Ariel Martin and Meg Donnelly thinks the prequel should introduce all the mythical creatures.
We can expect to see all the cast back for the third movie, if Disney Channel decides to make one. So that includes Milo Mannheim as Zed, Meg Donnelly as Addison, Trevor Jordan as Bucky, Chandler Kinney as Willa, Kingston Foster as Zoey, Carla Jeffery as Free and Paul Hopkins as Dale.

However, the studio has also continued to package its favorite formula in all forms and sizes, finding ways to address important issues through love, and well, catchy songs. 3 million viewers watched it within three days, making ‘ Zombies the studio’s most viewed film since ‘Descendants 2’.
It is ultimately about acceptance, and as Addison mentions in one of the scenes, fighting against intolerance. The film’s major success led to a sequel that takes us back to Seabrook after almost two long years.
‘ Zombies 2’ continues to address issues relating to identity, prejudice, and tolerance. What makes it all the more interesting is that Zed, despite all that he faced in the original, is having a difficult time accepting the new kids in town.
While the first film dealt with zombies trying to fit into the world of humans, showing them that they deserve acceptance like anybody else, and as Zed says, they’re not monsters. The second one shows a world where zombies and humans are finally living in harmony.
But just when things feel like they have changed, the werewolves enter Seabrook from the Forbidden Forest to look for their moonstone. The sequel brings in fresher dilemmas especially with Zed’s own prejudices against the werewolves.
While Zed is struggling with his own prejudice and insecurities, Addison is slowly finding a place for herself as her fate entwines with the werewolves. We know that Addison is very different from her family, and in both the parts of ‘ Zombies she struggles to find where she belongs.
Both parts of ‘ Zombies star Milo Mannheim as Zed, and Meg Donnelly as Addison. They also feature Kyle Russell, Trevor Jordan, Carla Jeffrey, James Godfrey, and Kingston Foster.
They are both directed by Paul Horn with a screenplay written by David Light and Joseph Rash. While it’s definitely too soon to expect an official confirmation, it only makes sense considering how hugely successful the franchise has been so far.
But given the success of the series so far, and of course, the mysterious ending, it is safe to assume that a third part to ‘ Zombies is bound to happen sooner or later. The sequel reunited director Ruben Fleischer, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Warwick, and stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Berlin for another ride through post-apocalyptic America, and leaves the ending open for the story to continue.
This led to the sequel being shelved for years while Reese and Warwick focused all of their creative attention on Deadpool. Speaking to TheW rap, Warwick noted that it was Woody Harrelson who, during the cold Atlanta shoot, first suggested making the next movie on an island.
The actors have joked in interviews about making Zombie land 3 in another decade, and given their various commitments to other projects it may actually take that long for everyone to get on the same page again. She's now a features writer and editor, covering the hottest topics in the world of serfdom from her home base in Oxford, UK.
She has lived and studied in New York and Toronto, but ultimately returned home so that she could get a decent cup of tea. Her hobbies include drawing, video games, long walks in the countryside, and wasting far too much time on Twitter.
By Metro Posted on October 16, 2019, In the ten years that it has taken for Zombie land: Double Tap to finally follow Zombie land there have been repeated rumors about the franchise and its future. Writers Paul Warwick and Rhett Reese have long insisted that they have many more stories to tell in this universe, while a pilot for a Zombie land television series was even shot, but Amazon decided against making a series of it.
That’s according to director Ruben Fleischer, who recently told Metro, “Emma pitched the idea of doing one every ten years. Of course, Fleischer recognizes that Double Tap has to make enough money at the box office to warrant a follow-up, adding, “Hypothetically we would all be thrilled.
But, as was the case with this one, it depends on figuring out a story worth telling and having a script that we all feel can be good. Double Tap certainly laid the groundwork for further Zombie land films and stories, though, as the zombies in the franchise have now evolved.
” It all depends on where they were in the country when the outbreak occurred,” explained Reese. As you’d expect both Reese and Warwick are very interested in making Zombie land 3.
Obviously this one needs to be a success,” remarked Warwick, before Reese then jokingly interjected by interrupting, “Broadway musical! Downton Abbey’s transition from television series to film proves that franchises can cross mediums and still have incredible success, with Reese admitting, “There are a lot of blurred lines now.
But it is also a function of big companies wanting to stick to brands that are already popular and that people like. Fleischer would be “thrilled” to see a Zombie land television series, as “it would be fun to explore other parts of the world.
Before then, though, Reese and Warwick are hard at work on Clue, their adaptation of the 1985 black comedy mystery, which is based on the board game of the same name. “Jason Batsman just came on board as director and will star with Ryan Reynolds,” revealed Warwick when quizzed about Clue.
He then added the update of, “We are taking another pass at the draft, with notes from Jason and Ryan. Most of us believe that the idea of zombies should be confined to the horror section of our preferred movie providers.
In them, he discovered details of a genuine US military plan to combat a zombie outbreak. Peter Cummings, a scientist from Boston University, states that several diseases and conditions already exist that could cause someone to be viewed as a zombie.
According to Cummings, the key to understanding the potential for these conditions to produce zombie traits was to examine the shutdown of the frontal lobe of the brain. He claimed that this resets the mind to its primal survival instincts, which is a zombielike state.
However, any “stimulation” from another person during this time made these patients “go berserk.” For what it’s worth, Cummings works in an advisory capacity for the Zombie Research Society, “an organization dedicated to the historic, cultural, and scientific study of the living dead.” When thinking of zombies, most people conjure up images of the dead rising from their graves.
She stated that the rising dead was an unlikely scenario, but the mutation of a virus similar to rabies wasn’t. Furthermore, she warned that this mutated strain could spread around the world and cause a condition almost identical to the typical view of a zombie.
For example, what if an individual or a group of people take it upon themselves to create a mutation of such a virus for the so-called “greater good” of the planet? With the slave trade, these traditions and practices made the journey to many parts of the Americas.
In recent times, Haiti has become one of the epicenters of modern cases of zombies.” In fact, the notion of voodoo permeates the mindset of the population. Without a doubt, one of the most controversial claims of real-life zombies came from Wade Davis of Harvard University.
Even more intriguing was Davis’s claims that criminals were turned into zombies in antiquity to stop their wayward behavior. Ultimately, he stated that creating zombies was achieved through a mixture of secret natural toxins.
Other believed that such discoveries, if true, would be of great interest to secret military projects. Researcher Zora Neal Huston has performed some of the most exhaustive studies of zombies in Haiti.
Almost half a century before Davis, Huston claimed that “people have been called back from the dead.” Supposedly, she had also witnessed real zombies in Haiti.” In one intriguing account, Huston tells of being invited to study hoodoo rituals up close.
A hoodoo priest gave permission for the unique opportunity, and Huston eventually performed several rituals herself. However, the account in her 1938 book, Tell My Horse: Voodoo and Life in Haiti and Jamaica, really grabbed people’s attention.
‘Zombie’ Parasite Takes Over Insects Through Mind Control | National Geographic The main worry is that these natural methods will be replicated in a science lab and used against the general population.
For example, many natural zombies are created when a parasite enters the nervous system of an animal through the food chain. This is most often an effort to bring the animal out into the open and in full view of its natural predators.
According to Penn State’s David Hughes, this turns the animals into “a fungus in ants’ clothing!” Stephen Kane, an associate professor at the University of California, Riverside, certainly has a unique theory as to why aliens have not visited Earth.
In addition, it would infect a large portion of the world’s population equally rapidly. It would probably take the world’s scientists and medical experts by complete surprise and on the back foot.
When we view the idea of zombies in those terms, the prospect doesn’t appear so laughable regardless of how unlikely it is to happen. Some researchers insist that the intelligence world is seeking to turn people into zombies through the use of drugs and mind control.
