Now, Under Wraps is getting a makeover just in time for the 2021 Halloween season. Under Wraps premiered Friday, Oct. 1 on Disney Channel. Soon, fans will be able to stream the DCOM remake on Disney+.
Beginning Friday, Oct. 8, Under Wraps will be available to Disney+ subscribers. The story follows three 12-year-old friends: Marshall, Gilbert, and Amy. After they awaken a mummy, affectionately named Harold, the trio must rush to return him to his resting place before midnight on Halloween.
Under Wraps stars Malachi Barton, Christian J. Simon, Sophia Hammons, and Phil Wright. The remake is directed by Alex Zamm (R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour: Don’t Think About It), who worked with Todd Y. Murata (Sightless) and Fernando Szew (Back of the Net) on the film.
