Harold the Mummy will return for another Halloween adventure in the comedy Under Wraps 2, a follow-up to the 2021 remake of Disney Channel’s first ever original movie, Under Wraps (read our review here), and filming of the sequel officially wrapped this week.
Phil Wright, who plays Harold the lovably mummy, posted a video on Instagram on Thursday (3/3/22), confirming that filming of Under Wraps 2 has concluded.
Melanie Brook, who plays Buzzy in the 2021 Under Wraps and in the new sequel, also posted an image to Instagram outside her trailer yesterday, saying simply, “Bye bye Buz,” indicating that she has also wrapped filming.
Alex Zamm returns to direct the upcoming sequel, written by Josh A Cagan.
The first film’s stars Malachi Barton, Christian J. Simon, Sophia Hammons, and Phil Wright are all back to reprise their roles, along with Melanie Brook also returning as Buzzy. T.J. Storm, Rryla McIntosh, and Jordan Conley also join the cast for the sequel, in addition to Adam Wylie, who played the original Gilbert in the 1997 Under Wraps movie.
Under Wraps 2 reportedly picks up as Amy (Sophia Hammons) is preparing for her father’s Halloween-themed wedding to his fiancé Carl, but plans soon go awry when Amy and her friends Gilbert (Christian J. Simon) and Marshall (Malachi Barton) discover that their mummy friend Harold (Phil Wright) and his beloved mummy bride Rose (Rryla McIntosh) may be in danger.
The sequel will introduce the new character Sobek, an evil mummy with a thousand-year-old grudge against his best friend-turned-bitter rival Harold, who is unexpectedly awakened and then goes out for revenge. With help from his hypnotized lackey Larry, Sobek kidnaps Rose, and Amy, Gilbert, Marshall, Buzzy, and Harold must use their skills once again to save her and get back in time to attend the wedding.
Under Wraps 2 is expected to premiere on Disney Channel before moving over to Disney+ this October.
