Disneys Prom Hits Theatres April 29
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

First there was “High School Musical.” Then there was “Glee.” No, strike that. First there was “Grease,” and “Grease II.” “High School Musical II?” “Grease III?” Well, whatever. The point is yet another movie follows in the wake of these teen classics and hits theater screens April 29, 2011. Disney’s “Prom” promises to be a hit with young wannabes as well as older usedtobes. Rated PG, the movie finds hordes of ‘tweens and their moms heading to box office lobbies to check out the latest version of another angst-laden rite of passing.

Prom -- Another Disney Movie

Cast of Characters:

Most names are new on the scene, but of course that’s the case. They were just born yesterday.

Jesse Richter, played by Thomas McDonell, shoulders more home responsibilities than typical high schoolers. Cast as a type of “bad boy,” Jesse has little use for socializing, friends and the high school culture. He finds himself doing prom committee work as punishment for breaking a school rule and runs into a pretty girl. Things are bound to heat up from there.

Nova Prescott, played by Aimee Teegarden, we all have known. A straight-A student, enthusiastic and ever positive, Nova aims to please everyone by putting on the best prom ever. She gets along with her parents, has lots of friends and runs into the stone wall that is Jesse. Fun times ahead at Brookside High.

Lloyd Taylor, played by Nicholas Braun, has blended into the high school scenery around him. Wanting to have a high school experience or two behind him before he leaves these hallowed halls, Lloyd decides to ask a girl to the prom. Trouble is – which one? And which one will have him? And how does he actually ask her? Yeah, we’ve all been there. We’re bound to love the guy while getting a few laughs from his pain.

Simone Daniels, played by Danielle Campbell. Watching the girl next door turn into a butterfly always sets hearts to fluttering. Simone is a charming, happy-go-lucky girl as lovely inside as she is outside. When the boys discover the little girl next door has sprouted wings, watch out!

Lucas Arnaz, played by Nolan Sotillo, is a sophomore into indie rock and all things geek. He’s been best buds with, but hears ole Pan’s pipes playing in the distance and tugging on his heartstrings. How does one pursue the girl of his dreams without endangering his relationship with his best friend? More importantly, how does he get the girl to see him in a special light, or in any light at all?

Jordan Lundley, played by Kylie Bunbury. There has to be one: the superlative. The most beautiful girl in the school, and shoe-in for prom queen. What did one movie-star Cinderella used to sing? “Are you really as wonderful as you seem?”

Tyler Barso, played by De’Vaughn Nixon. Tyler is the other half of the coin. As captain of the sports team, this drop-dead gorgeous people magnet can rest assured in being named prom king. Is there more to this man in the fortune-teller’s mirror?

Corey Doyle, played by Cameron Monaghan, is not maturing as quickly the rest of the guys. Young at heart and in body as well, Corey loves music. He also loves his best friend enough to help him catch his dream date to the prom. Who wins out in the end?

Mei (Yin Chang) and Justin Wexler (Jared Kusnitz). Everyone knows Mei and Justin are a couple. Always have been. Always will be. They bring artistic talents and lots of flair to prom planning and guarantee to make the event a huge hit. As we all know, however, things in high school move fast, especially when teen hormones start to rumble.

What Thrills Does Disney’s Prom Promise?

Disney’s website claims that at “Prom,” “every couple has a story, and no two are exactly alike.” The same holds true of movies about high school. Kids grow up, usually with a struggle. Hormones build. Teen boys and teen girls discover that opposites do attract, even if they repel as well. Some go willingly, others reluctantly. Most blunder around more than a bit. Love and friendship sometimes conquer. The rite-of-passage from adolescence into adulthood is filled with the new and wonderful same-old-trite-and-true.

When movie audiences step into box offices in April, or when they plop the DVD version into DVD players in home theaters soon after that, “Prom,” ushers young people into a world of possibilities, of dreams and future hopes of their own versions of Starry Night. “Prom” transports older folks back to their own glory days, when they, too, had a legacy in all the promise that high school had to offer. Adulthood loomed on the horizon; adventure and better times were on their way. Whether they fell into despair, gained fame or achieved some measure of happiness, prom memories remind them of the way they were, and help them remember dreaming about things to come.
