Disclosure: I received a copy of Disney’s ZOMBIES complimentary, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Have a Disney ZOMBIES Movie Night!
One of Disney Channel‘s most recent original movies was one that I absolutely loved, and was quite unique: ZOMBIES. Disney’s ZOMBIES is a movie musical, that takes place 50 years after a zombie apocalypse. Now that zombies are no longer a danger to the typical person, they are able to be enrolled at a regular high school for the first time ever! ZOMBIES centers around zombie Zed, who is determined to play football even though zombies have never been on the football team at Seabrook High School. Throughout the film, zed and cheerleader Addison work together to try to embrace their differences.
The movie is reminiscent of the early 2000’s Disney Channel Original Movies, with catchy musical numbers and beautifully choreographed scenes. Yet at the same time the film is very unique, with its bubblegum-pastel color schemes and a 1950’s sci-fi feel, reminiscent of the kitschy atomic age. The zombies are no virus-infected Walking Dead monsters, but instead are affected by toxic waste and are pleasantly color-blocked. Kids will love the bubbly acting and poppy musical numbers, and parents will enjoy the sweet (but never saccharine) Romeo-and-Juliet story, with a decent amount of palatable social commentary.
Disney’s ZOMBIES is now out on DVD, and to have your own family movie night at home, I created a couple simple movie night snacks that are Seabrook High’s school colors: pastel green and pink!
ZOMBIES Inspired Popcorn
- 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 tsp plant-based green food coloring
- 1 tsp plant-based pink food coloring
- Coconut oil
- Pop 1/3 cup popcorn kernels according to package directions.
- Melt 1 cup white chocolate chips with a dash of coconut, or other favorite oil.
- Once melted, separate into two different bowls. One bowl add pink food coloring, one bowl add green food coloring.
- Separate your popcorn into two different bowls, pouring green chocolate mixture into one bowl, the pink in the other.
- Once poured on top, combine with your hands or a large spoon until coated.
- Place in the fridge for at least 10 minutes to dry. Serve and enjoy!
Seabrook High Snack Skewers
- Green grapes
For a healthier movie night snack option, you can make a fruit skewer of strawberries and green grapes, or watermelon and kiwi…basically any pink and green fruit!
