The singing, dancing dead

Following in the steps of the massively popular “Descendants” comes the Disney musical “Zombies,” set at a high school where students from nearby Zombietown are being integrated into the student body. The film offers strong songs, impressive dancing and two likable leads: Meg Donnelly as a freshman who dreams of being a cheerleader, and Milo Manheim as a charismatic zombie determined to play football for the Mighty Shrimp, a team that desperately needs a win.
