Who says the Disney Channel is just for kids? When its latest original movie, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam premieres, there will be plenty of reasons for adults to tune in. The sequel stars Demi Lovato as Mitchie Torres, who returns to Camp Rock only to learn that a new rival camp, Camp Star, has recruited some of Rock's campers and instructors. It's up to her and rock stars Connect 3, played by the Jonas Brothers, to save their turf. From the music and choreography to first loves, find out why people of all ages should Rock out from the stars themselves.
No. 1: A nod to Classic Rock
Kevin Jonas (Jason) tells TVGuide.com about the pop-culture references in the film that an older generation will appreciate. "We have images from records, like a couple [of] Bruce Springsteen, Band on the Run ... They're in the middle of the scene and all of a sudden it'll happen, and you either catch it for a second, or it'll go away."
No. 2: Dancing, dancing and more dancing
"Everyone loves dancing, no matter what age you are," Roshon Fegan (Sander) says. Demi Lovato adds that the dance sequences are bigger and better — and they feature people doing gymnastics tricks and stepping on tables.
No. 3: Nostalgia for summer camp
We all wish were kids again. Who doesn't want the summers off and no work to worry about? "We all were teens," Camp Rock 2 writer Dan Berendsen says. "You either went to camp or wanted to go. It's a great carefree experience and we all get to relive that — first love, standing up for what you believe in."
No. 4: The music will leave you humming for days
And it's not just pop and rock music this time around. Camp Rock newcomer Chloe Bridges says that "the music is more appealing in this one because ... they [also] have hip-hop, and I even bring a little bit of classical music to it."
No. 5: The Jonas Brothers
OK, so they may be 22 (Kevin), 21 (Joe), and 17 (Nick), but their adorable looks, combined with their rock-star status, are enough to make any woman swoon. Star Jasmine Richards (Peggy) certainly agrees. "Any adult, I think, would think that they're still cute, even if they are a little bit younger," she says.
Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam premieres Sept. 3 at 8/7c on the Disney Channel.
