You know how hit songs are often repackaged and remixed into (typically much more annoying) dance versions, club versions, and added-rap versions? Disney is now taking the same approach with television. Over the Sept. 3 weekend, fans will have an opportunity to experience Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam three (or even more) ways. But is there such a thing as Camp Rock overdose?
Here's the schedule. Try to keep up with me...
Friday, Sept. 3 at 8 pm: The original Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, starring Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas (with nine-year-old Frankie Jonas making his TV movie debut) airs, with a simulcast on Radio Disney. (If you subscribe to Verizon FiOS, your kids can preview the movie on-demand on Sept. 1, and have the next two days of school to impress their friends).
Saturday, Sept. 4 at 8 pm: The "Rock Along" version of The Final Jam will feature onscreen lyrics (a la the Grease sing-a-long. Watch a clip).
Sunday, Sept. 5 at 8 pm: The "Sunday Dance Jam" version will be hosted by Lovato and the Jonas Brothers, who will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the movie.
An extended version of Camp Rock 2, featuring two exclusive new musical numbers, will be available on Disney DVD Tuesday, Sept. 7. Radio Disney and Disney.com will also offer original content and related shows.
And if you're really really really into Camp Rock, know that the Nintendo DS "Camp Rock Final Jam" game drops on Aug. 31. I assume it has nothing to do with seeing how many Camp Rock movies you can fit into your DVR in a weekend.
Can there be too much Camp Rock? Well, do I need to explain Camp Rock's plot to you? Same answer. I'm just surprised Disney didn't leverage the phrase "six ways to Sunday" literally. Where there's demand, there's always (repackaged) supply. And where there's kids, there's always demand.
Chances are that you'll even see a Camp Rock: The Next Generation before Frankie Jonas sees junior high.
Is this too much Camp Rock? Chime in below!
