2. Jump In!
Almost all of Disney’s teen-oriented films follow the same formula. In any case, if you’re looking for a change of pace, check out Jump In! This is a story about jumping rope, not singing or dancing.
As a young boxer, Izzy faces off against his bully in order to earn a spot in a major boxing tournament. His father has coached and mentored him throughout his life, so it’s obvious this is the path he’ll follow.
Izzy’s destiny, on the other hand, is predetermined by fate. He quickly discovers a new hobby thanks to his newest fling, Mary, who also happens to be an accomplished jump rope player. Izzy neglects his boxing practice because he is so engrossed in the sport and because it allows him to spend more time with his crush.

In Jump In!, you’ll learn to stand up to bullies, follow your passions, and not be ashamed if they don’t match the social norm. All of these ideas are presented in a fun and humorous way.
Twitches is a great example of Disney’s versatility when it comes to fantasy films. The story revolves around two sets of identical twins, Alex and Caryn, played by identical twins Tia and Tamara Mowry.

Even if you’re not a fan of teen movies, you’ll enjoy this one. It’s surreal to see the two sisters acting in unison on screen. As the story unfolds, you’ll see why these two were hand-picked for the lead role in the film.
4. Read It And Weep
Over the years, Disney has produced a slew of well-known pop stars and actors, including Kay Panabaker, who currently appears in The Flash. Read It And Weep was one of her first film roles.
The story revolves around Jamie, a high school student who keeps a journal and how it causes quite a stir. Jamie, who is dissatisfied with school, keeps a journal in which she changes the names of all the people she meets. She transforms her everyday existence into a fantastical and exciting fantasy world. On the other hand, she submits her journal for an English assignment by mistake one day. Her journal, which everyone assumes is made up, brings her fame and notoriety. When people in her life begin to see the connection between the two events, trouble begins to brew.
In some ways, it’s formulaic, especially with all the typical high school drama, but it’s still worth watching for the spectacle. Something about high school culture intrigues us, and we find ourselves yearning to return there.
Read It And Weep is your best bet if you’re looking for enthralling films like Starstruck.
5. Halloweentown High
There have been a total of three films in the Halloweentown film franchise. However, prior viewing is not required in order to fully appreciate this film.
High school student Marnie Piper is also a witch. Halloweentown, it turns out, is a magical realm tucked away in plain sight. She invites a few of her magically gifted students to come study with her in the mortal realm. The council of Halloweentown grants her wish after much persuasion.
She transforms the monsters into human beings and brings them to the school as exchange students. Things, on the other hand, do not go as planned. Not everyone supports the noble goal of allowing the mortal and magical worlds to coexist.
Fans of the Iron Dagger, a cult that hates magic, want it to be eradicated. Do you think Marnie will be able to save her students from these extremists?
This is your best bet if you enjoy a dash of the supernatural in your typical teen film. Everything in this sneaky film works together to make it an engaging watch: there’s romance, drama, magic, and mayhem.
6. Let It Shine
When it comes to teen films, one of the best things about Disney is that they have something for everyone. Some people prefer to rap rather than croon like a bird. One such rapper is profiled in the film Let It Shine.
As a shy high schooler with an undiscovered talent for rapping, Cyrus has a great sense of flow and rhythm. He enters a piece of his work in a recording competition in the hopes of landing a record deal. However, when his best friend is mistaken for the rapper, he decides to carry on with the ruse anyhow..
Be brave and show the world who you really are in Let It Shine. Cyrus holds back from pursuing his dream out of fear of ridicule and criticism, but he soon comes to regret it. Don’t worry about it. After all, it is a Disney film. There aren’t many stories with happy endings. There’s still time for our protagonist to turn things around.
It’s about time he took the next step and showed off his incredible talent to the rest of the world. It’s a heartwarming story that will give hope to a lot of aspiring musicians and artists.
With an app that can control the lives of all the boys, this teen film takes us on a wild adventure! Zoey, a sixteen-year-old high school student, recently learned that her household has grown significantly. There are three stepbrothers in her mother’s new marriage to a basketball coach.
They’re filthy, cruel, and Zoey despises them for a variety of reasons. Frustrated, she installs a magical app that grants her complete control over the behavior of any and all men in her life. Soon, not only her brothers, but all of the male students at her school, begin to act better. The rest of the story revolves around whether or not her secret will be revealed and whether or not she will be able to get along with her new family.
As enthralling as the story is, it also has a poignant message hidden within it all. Leting people be who they are is often the best course of action, as we see through Zoey’s eyes. You have no control over the actions of others, and attempting to do so is pointless.
8. The Suite Life Movie
Many of us grew up with Disney’s hit show The Suite Life of Zack and Cody in the background. Many happy memories are associated with the antics of two identical twins who reside with their mother in a hotel. Surely, a movie based on this hit television series must be the best thing that could possibly happen?
After a few years, Zack and Cody are still not getting along as teenagers in the sequel to the series. When the couple has a huge fight on vacation, things come to a head and they part ways. Instead of fighting against each other, the brothers band together after learning of a sinister plan that involves them switching personalities.
The sci-fi aspect of the series keeps it interesting despite the simplicity of the problems. This brother-sister duo, who started out as actors and comedians in their teens, have gotten better and better with age. Allow yourself to be overcome by feelings of awe and wonder.
The Suite Life Movie comes the closest to being a Starstruck-like film. This is a real find; don’t pass it up.
9. Radio Rebel
Radio Rebel is a heartwarming, endearing drama about a girl breaking out of her shell for a variety of reasons.
Tara Adams, a senior in high school, is quiet and reserved by nature. She’s shy in real life, but on her podcast, she’s a different person. She pursues her dream of being a radio jockey and becomes known as DJ Radio Rebel as a result. Everybody in the class loves her because of her fiery personality and fearless demeanor in the booth. The students can’t wait to meet this rock star in person, and Tara is under increasing pressure to reveal her true identity.
The plot isn’t complicated at all. Not many surprises, but the message of not giving in to peer pressure is delivered quite effectively. No one has to be the best quarterback or the best cheerleader in high school to have fun; everyone has a special talent hidden within them. This, in my opinion, is a message that today’s generation of teenagers could benefit from hearing.
10. The Swap
The Swap is a PG-13 reimagining of It’s a Boy, Girl Thing about coming to terms with differences. This teen film takes place at Ellie’s high school, where she meets Jack, a new student. Each individual believes that the other’s situation is preferable. Afterwards, the two suddenly find themselves in the bodies of the other and are forced to live the other’s life. In the future, Ellie will participate in sports, and Jack will take up ribbon dancing, which will help them better understand one another.
In spite of its lighthearted tone, The Swap teaches valuable lessons about empathy and contentment. Grass is always greener on the other side, as the saying goes, and this film only serves to confirm this notion
