Zenon Kar, 15, is two years older in 2051 but none the wiser about the dangers of meddling, but when she shows Nebula a new game and how to play it she inadvertently empties out Commander Planks Office and is assigned work detail in the Alien Patrol lab. Worse the space station is now under command of the military and General Hammond is assigned to command the station and boots Commander Plank out of his office. Even worse, he assigns Zenon to look after his daughter who turns out to be her old nemesis, Margie, who's demanding and threatens to have her dad kick Zenon and her family off the space station if Zenon doesn't obey her. Zenon then discovers that her space station is being decommissioned due to damage from the plot by Wyndum and Lutz and sneaks down to Earth to try and stop it after getting a message from aliens that seem to want to meet with Proto Zoa, but Margie wants to go too and sneaks down to Earth as well, but making it look like Zenon forced her to go with her.

Ever since the last Disney Channel original movie -- "The Ultimate Christmas Present" premiered when they first aired the very first promo for "Zenon: The Zequel" I have been really looking forward to this movie ALL month long and right up until the premEAR of it on January 12, 2001 -- two years after the premEAR of the first one ("Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century") in which I have also been a fan of as well.
This movie is basically everything I could have hoped it would be and more with one minor drawback -- that the producers were unable to get the FULL cast of the first one back to do the sequel. Still, the important characters were still played by the same actors/actresses (Kirsten Storms, Lauren Maltby, Stuart Pankin and Phillip Rhys as Proto Zoa.) Stuart Pankin is simply hilarious and a GREAT actor -- in both "Zenon" movies as well as in "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves". Kirsten Storms (Zenon Carr) is even better in this sequel than the first movie, though she still gave a fantastic performance in the first one. Her arch-earth-nemesis, Margie (Lauren Maltby) is in this sequel a lot more than she was in the first one and also gives a fantastic performance.
The opening scene (after the voice-over introductory scene) is just absolutely so well done and hilarious! This really does a great job of grabbing the viewer's attention and will make the viewer want to keep watching the rest of the movie for anymore just-as-hilarious scenes as this one. So I don't ruin the movie for anyone, I won't go into detail and describe it here but just let me say that it all starts off with a very innocent little computer game that turns out to be a REAL game and proves to be disastrous-major!
It's original movies like this one that really keeps me looking forward to each and every Disney Channel original movie every month as well as collecting them all for my video library!
