You may remember Disney’s movie Under Wraps released back in 1997 about a group of kids who accidentally revive a mummy. Well, it’s getting a remake and it’s set to land on the Disney Channel this October, just in time for Halloween. And we’ve got the trailer.
 
 
The new take on the horror-comedy stars Christian J. Simon (Sydney to the Max), Malachi Barton (Stuck in the Middle), Sophia Hammons (The Social Dilemma), and Phil Wright (Disney Fam Jam). Alex Zamm directed the Under Wraps remake.
 
 
“The re-imagined story takes place a few days before Halloween when 12-year-old friends Gilbert (Simon), Marshall (Barton), and Amy (Hammons) accidentally revive a mummy they discover in a neighbor’s basement, which they affectionately name Harold (Wright). However, they must rush to return him to his resting place before midnight on Halloween. Along the way, the team narrowly escapes a nefarious group of criminals intent on selling the mummy to the highest bidder. When Harold is inevitably captured, Marshall, Gilbert, and Amy must band together to stand up to the criminals, face their fears, and rescue their new—but rather “ancient”—friend.”
 
 

Under Wraps introduced a generation of kids and families to what has become the backbone of our programming across the globe: Disney Channel Original Movies,” said Lauren Kisilevsky, vice president, Original Movies, Disney Channel. “We are excited to welcome our audience back into the Halloween spirit and celebrate the unlikely friendship between three kids and a mummy as they embark on an adventure and ultimately save the day.”

 
 
As soon as the exact premiere date is announced we’ll let you know. In the meantime, you can watch the original on Disney+ and on Amazon Prime.
