Check out these brand new stills from Disney Channel's upcoming original movie "Lemonade Mouth."
The movie is based on the book of the same name and tells the story of a bunch of misfits that meet in detention and form band. Bridgit Mendler, Adam Hicks and Hayley Kiyoko star.
The story begins in present day as Lemonade Mouth (comprised of Olivia White, Wen Gifford, Stella Yamada, Mohini (Mo) Banjaree and Charlie Delgado) takes the stage at Madison Square Garden before thousands of cheering fans. Olivia, the introspective lead singer of the group, narrates the epic story of how the band got to this point.
It was a chance meeting in Miss Reznick's detention that brought this unlikely ensemble together. Stella, the connector in the group, immediately recognizes the potential for the band of detainees to become a band of rockers, but first she must convince the reluctant group that they need to take a chance on expressing themselves and realizing their dreams.
As the new friends learn more about each other, they discover their common belief that it's time for the students of Mesa High School to stand up and be heard - all students, not just the popular athletes who benefit from Principal Brenigan's support of their extracurricular programs.
However, not everyone in the school is ready to welcome a new band. The school's popular rock group, Mudslide Crush, are determined to maintain their status as the school's leading entertainment choice. Complicating matters further is Mo's boyfriend, Scott, who is Mudslide Crush's lead guitarist.
Meanwhile, Olivia tries to come to terms with her absent father, Wen disapproves of his father's new girlfriend, Stella yearns to stand apart from her family's scholarly accomplishments, Mo searches for balance between her parents' stringent expectations and the person she wants to be, and Charlie tries to escape living in the shadow of his older brother.
The "Lemonade Mouth" pop music soundtrack includes nine original songs (plus a bonus track) by songwriters Vincent Alfieri, Aris Archontis, Johan Alkenas, Joleen Belle, Ebony Burks, Maria Christensen, Zach Danziger, Ali Dee Theodore, Andy Dodd, Adam Hicks, Tom Leonard, Jeannie Lurie, Charlie Mason, Niclas Molinder, Chen Neeman, Joacim Persson, Lindy Robbins, Shridhar Solanki, Ken Stacey, Shane Stevens, Matthew Tishler, Bryan Todd, Reed Vertelney, Windy Wagner, David Walsh and Adam Watts.
