Disney Channel Original Movies were a staple for many kids growing up in the 90s and 00s. It all began in 1997 with the Halloween film titled Under Wraps and the mummy-focused kid’s movie is now getting a remake with a new re-imagining of the story.
Christian J. Simon, Malachi Barton, Sophia Hammons, and Phil Wright will star in the comedy. The new version will still focus on a mummy and will be set around Halloween.
As per Deadline, Under Wraps “takes place a few days before Halloween when 12-year-old friends Gilbert (Simon), Marshall (Barton), and Amy (Hammons) accidentally revive a mummy they discover in a neighbor’s basement which they affectionately name Harold (Wright). However, they must rush to return him to his resting place before midnight on Halloween. Along the way, the team narrowly escapes a nefarious group of criminals intent on selling the mummy to the highest bidder. When Harold is inevitably captured, Marshall, Gilbert, and Amy must band together to stand up to the criminals, face their fears, and rescue their new—but rather “ancient”—friend.”
Alex Zamm is directing the updated version, which will premiere in 2022.
