Disney starlet and noted tween role model Zendaya Coleman is set to star in Zapped, a new dancing-themed Disney Channel movie slated for a 2014 premiere.

The comedy-adventure featuring the Shake It Up star will debut on Disney Channels around the world as well as on Canada’s Family Channel. Based on the book Boys Are Dogs by Leslie Margolis, the movie follows 16-year-old Zoey Stevens, a skilled dancer who discovers a dog training app on her smartphone that somehow allows her to control all the boys around her.

Also starring are Chanelle Peloso (Radio Rebel) and Spencer Boldman (Disney XD’s Lab Rats).

Filmed on Vancouver Island in Canada, the movie is produced by Off-Leash Teleproductions, distributed by Muse Distribution International and is licensed by ABC Cable Networks and Family Channel.
