Mumbai: Disney’s Camp Rock will premiere on Disney Channel on 26 December at 6 pm.
Camp Rock is the story of a talented yet unsure girl, Mitchie who yearns to share her songs with the world, and of a young superstar who’s lost his passion for music and is sent to the camp by his band mates. Together, at a camp for aspiring young music artists, they learn to believe in themselves and to value the freedom to be who they really want to be.
The movie stars Jonas Brothers (Joe, Kevin and Nick) and Demi Lovato (of Disney Channel’s As the Bell Rings).
The movie is written by Regina Hicks (Girlfriend), Karin Gist (Disney Channel’s Jump In!), Julie Brown (Medusa Dare to be Truthful) and Paul Brown. Directed by Matthew Diamond (Great Performances: Dance in Americ"), the movie is all set to enchant Disney Channel fans in India.
Walt Disney Television International (India) MD and senior vice president Antoine Villeneuve said, "Disney Channel’s strong creative content has made it a powerhouse in kids and family entertainment worldwide. Disney’s Camp Rock incorporates one of the binding themes that appeals to kids from all regions – music. Disney Channel has created local touch-points for fans across the country to better relate to the theme and stars of Camp Rock. The Hindi soundtracks and a nationwide Camp Rock inspired on-ground event – My School Rocks have already engaged over 500,000 kids across the country."
The Camp Rock local album includes three re-created songs in Hindi with Indian instruments while nine others are re-recorded in Hindi. Kids across 550 schools celebrated dance and music through Camp Rock inspired My School Rocks across the country. The winners of the competition will soon feature in a Disney Channel music video to be choreographed by celebrity Bollywood choreographer and the judge of this competition, Shiamak Davar.
