It's the question all us Disney Channel Original Movie fanatics have been asking ourselves for years: Is there going to be a Teen Beach 3? Well, let's put it this way – it's as complicated as Brady and Mack getting transported into an alternate sing-a-long universe.
The first sign of hope that we may just get a third Teen Beach Movie started when Garrett Clayton said that he and his co-stars would totally be on board if a third film gets announced sometime in the future. He also even had his own personal ideas about what the plot should be.
"I always say it depends on the script and the story you're going to tell. I think we've all kind of said if it’s a good script, why wouldn't we want to make it?" Garrett said in an interview. "I have my own personal ideas of what it should be, but that’s just me."
Maia put in her two cents as well, saying that she'd be down – but she has no idea if it'll happen.
"We're as in the dark as you are, but it would be really fun— a third one would be cool!" she told People's Choice.
However, that was all the way back in 2015. So has the ship sailed or is there still hope? Well, someone who wasn't in Teen Beach exclusively told J-14 that he would so be down to join the cast of the third movie. Who, you ask? We're talking Rudy Mancuso, Maia Mitchell's boyfriend IRL.
"Definitely! I had to think about it, but now that I actually think about it – it would be a lot of fun. Why not?" Rudy told us.
We just had to ask – what side would he be on? The surfers or bikers?
"Whatever side Maia's on."
Good answer! As for if he's ever watched Teen Beach, he sure has – but not necessarily with Maia.
"Of course I have! Well, she runs to the other room, and I watch it. She's not in love with the idea of us watching her on the screen. I don't even think she likes watching herself on the screen – neither do I. I understand it. But it's just so fun to watch! It's a fun movie," Rudy told us.
So what about leading cutie Ross Lynch?
Well, he seems on the fence about returning to Disney Channel in general. Now that the Austin & Ally chapter of his life has come to a close, the actor has been focusing on some more mature roles – along with touring with his band R5, of course. Seriously though. One moment he's all, "I wouldn’t say that I’m going to do another Disney TV show." But in another interview, he's like "If Disney would take me, I’d love to go back." He's clearly torn.
It doesn't seem like there are any plans for a third film as of now, but we think it's safe to say the cast would be down if the opportunity presented itself.
