The quintet, plus costar Nick Roux, also stopped by Radio Disney recently to chat about the flick.
Hayley and Bridgit had the chance to open up about their characters, Stella and Olivia. Bridgit shared, “Sheâ€™s [Olivia] very reserved, the only reason she was in detention is because she was reading in the janitorâ€™s closet.”
Hayley added, “I think itâ€™s really cool that we have our differences and learn to embrace them. I hope people watch the movie and learn to accept each other. In the movie Iâ€™m a firecracker, strong and spontaneous. Sometimes that gets us in trouble!”
WHAT DO YOU THINK about Lemonade Mouth’s “Somebody?”
Naomi Scott shows off her pearly whites as she’s surrounded by her castmates and press during the TCA Winter Panel held at The Langham Hotel in Pasadena, Calif., on Monday morning (January 10).
The British beauty plays Mohini “Mo” Banjaree in the upcoming Lemonade Mouth. The DCOM follows an ensemble of five students who, after meeting in detention, start a band â€” Lemonade Mouth â€“that soon resonates with students sidelined by the high school elite. However, not everyone in the school is ready to cheer them on, especially since the popular rock group Mudslide Crush is determined to maintain their headline status and win the coveted Rising Star music competition at Mesa High.
While the flick premieres on March 25, the soundtrack hits shelves on March 22. You’ll actually hear a few tracks from Adam Hicks that he wrote!
The story begins in present day as Lemonade Mouth takes the stage at Madison Square Garden before thousands of cheering fans. Olivia (Bridgit Mendler), 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 (Tisha Campbell-Martin) detention that brought this unlikely ensemble together. Stella (Kiyoko), 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.
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 (Naomi Scott) boyfriend, Scott (Nick Roux), who is Mudslide Crush’s lead guitarist.
Lemonade Mouth premieres Friday, March 25 @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel. Stay tuned to JJJ for our exclusive interviews from the set!
