Disney has announced that ‘Disney’s Holiday Magic Quest’ will be returning for a second year to the Disney Channel. ‘Zombies’ stars Milo Manheim, Kylee Russel, Meg Donnelly and Trevor Tordjman will be competing in challenges inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The show will air Friday, December 3, at 7:00 p.m. EST/PST on Disney Channel. It will also be available on streaming on Disney+.
Hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown, the young stars will compete after dark and will “navigate a series of new challenges and obstacles through a variety of iconic and immersive Walt Disney World attractions.”
This year’s story is as follows:
“Disney villain Maleficent has stolen the holiday star from atop the Holiday Tree, and its pieces have been hidden throughout Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The ZOMBIES stars are tasked to find the missing pieces and reassemble the star to restore the magic to the theme park. With the help of their magic maps and the heroes they’ll meet along the way, the competitors will step into the stories inspired by each land, including navigating larger-than-life obstacles inside Andy’s Backyard at Toy Story Land; escaping Kylo Ren and the Stormtroopers at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, with help from Chewbacca; and surviving bellhop training inside The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.”
So it’s basically a commercial geared at kids for Disney. But I give them major props for creativity in advertising!
There will also be special appearances by ” beloved Disney, Pixar and Star Wars characters.”
The stars will be divided into two groups to compete and the prize is a donation to Toys For Tots in honor of the winning team.
Here is the trailer and some promotional images:
