It’s been more than 10 years since Lemonade Mouth premiered on April 15, 2011! The Disney Channel Original Movie immediately became a fan-favorite flick with its epic cast and catchy tunes, and fans have been waiting for a comeback for years.
In March 2021, the official Lemonade Mouth HQ Twitter account teased fans with news that there would be “new Lemonade Mouth-related content soon,” and fans were low-key freaking out! Based on the 2007 book of the same name by Mark Peter Hughes, the movie starred Blake Michael, Bridgit Mendler, Hayley Kiyoko, Adam Hicks and Naomi Scott, among others. It followed the story of high school students who met in detention and formed a rock band. With their newly formed group, Lemonade Mouth, the five teens stand up for their beliefs and compete against a rival band Mudslide Crush.
“When I found out I got the part I was excited, but at the same time I had just finished Good Luck Charlie and really wanted to work on my music for the summer,” Bridgit told Teen Vogue in 2011 about nabbing the major Disney movie role. “Once I got on set it was so cool. You have the stories of these five separate kids who come together and form a band. From the first song to the last the group grows and progresses and the music reflects that.”
Similarly, Hayley told Teen Vogue that she “enjoyed getting to do everything I love in one project— act, sing, dance, play guitar,” noting that “it was a lot of hard work.” The songstress added: “My character Stella is the new kid at the school and sees how the music program is being jipped, so she starts a revolution using a band to make a difference.”
Years later, the songstress even went back to her Lemonade Mouth roots on TikTok. In March 2020, she uploaded a clip of herself singing the movie’s original tune “Determinate” alongside the caption, “Since you always ask … this one is for you.”
