Zapped is an American Disney Channel Original Movie. Filmed and produced in Vancouver, Canada,[1] the movie began production in early August 2013. It stars Zendaya, Chanelle Peloso, Emilia McCarthy and Spencer Boldman.[2] Zendaya portrays the lead role, Zoey Stevens.[3]


Zoey Stevens is a 17-year-old high school student who excels in dancing and academics. She has difficulties when she changes schools, including adapting to its inept dance squad, as well as her new stepfather and stepbrothers at home, along with dealing with unrealistically rude and dim-witted male classmates. A dog training app she downloads for her phone changes things when it lets her give commands to boys.[2]



Zapped is produced by Off-Leash Teleproductions, Inc., distributed by Muse Distribution International and MarVista Entertainment and is licensed by ABC Cable Networks and Family Channel.[4]


The first promo aired on April 27, 2014 during an episode of Win, Lose or Draw, while a full trailer aired on April 27, 2014 during the Radio Disney Music Awards. Zapped was released on demand and Watch Disney Channel on June 23, 2014. It made its debut on June 27, 2014 on Disney Channel in the United States,[5] and Family Channel in Canada.[6] Disney Channel (UK and Ireland) will premiere the film on July 18, 2014. [7]


The US premiere garnered 5.7 million viewers.[8] The movie got medium-low reviews, mainly citing the overly-stereotypical portrayal of men.[9]
