Fans get double the laughter and two times the fun when Disney Channel Original Movies Dadnapped and Hatching Pete arrive on DVD on May 12, 2009 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. For the first time ever, two full-length movies featuring some of the network’s favorite young stars come together in a single disc for one low price! Dadnapped and Hatching Pete will provide viewers with hours of wholesome, hilarious entertainment, as well as a bevy of exclusive bonus features not available anywhere else.
Top-flight Disney Channel talent shines in a pair of the network’s signature productions as Emily Osment, star of the hit Disney Channel series Hannah Montana, and David Henrie of Wizards of Waverly Place headline Dadnapped, an action-packed, thrill-a-minute comedy. Then a pair of tween faves rules the roost when Jason Dolley, of Cory in the House and Minutemen, and Mitchell Musso, of Hannah Montana, star in the screwball comedy Hatching Pete, a tale of fame, friendship and “fowl” play.
In Dadnapped, fourteen year-old Melissa (Emily Osment) is struggling with a unique kind of sibling rivalry. To get her father Neil’s (George Newburn) attention, she has to compete with teenage spy Tripp Zoome, the main character in her father’s best selling novels. Her dad spends so much time on his imaginary son’s exciting missions that even Melissa’s special daughter-dad vacation gets interrupted by a promotional event for Neil’s newest book. But when Neil is abducted by overzealous fanboys and falls into the clutches of a pair of sinister brothers, the fictional Tripp can’t save him and Melissa will have to try to channel her “inner Zoome” to rescue her dad.
A bashful high school student finds fames as a high-flying poultry impersonator in Hatching Pete. Pete’s (Jason Dolley) best friend Poole (Mitchel Musso) wants to keep up his family’s longstanding tradition of playing their high school mascot, the Chicken, but Poole is allergic to the costume. Pete agrees to stand in for his pal, but only on the condition that his identity remains a secret. The anonymity of the Chicken suit gives Pete the freedom he’s always dreamed of and a whole new personality emerges. His unexpectedly outrageous antics make the Chicken an instant celebrity— except no one knows it’s Pete. As Poole reaps the benefits of his pal’s talent, Pete must decide if it’s time to reveal that he’s the man behind the beak.
