Jake T. Austin,
Disney Studios new teen comedy Hatching Pete is about two high school kids who both are their team's Chicken Mascot. Only one claims credit for it while the other does the work.
I suppose that Cyrano De Bergerac is well in the public domain so no one will be suing the Magic Kingdom any time soon. But I suspect that Rostand would not be too unhappy with this updating of his classic set in 21st Century America. In fact things work out a whole lot better for these kids than for Cyrano and Christian.
Teen Disney Television stars Jason Dolley, Mitchell Musso, and Tiffany Thornton star in Hatching Pete. Musso is the school's chicken mascot, a family tradition as his father was one also. The problem is that Musso's developed an allergy to the costume and just can't go on. So he has good friend and wallflower transfer student Jason Dolley put on the suit for a game.
But Dolley discovers he's got a real flair for those outfits and soon he becomes the reason the crowds come out. It certainly isn't for the team and its coach Brian Stepanek. In fact there's a lot of jealousy developing between Stepanek and his players with the chicken no matter who it is.
In fact both Dolley and Musso would like to win Homecoming Queen Tiffany Thornton even though cheerleader Josie Lopez is a whole lot nicer. Trust me, it all works out in the end.
Hatching Pete is a nice product from the Magic Kingdom and who knows in some English Literature class in some high school in the USA someone may realize where this plot comes from and develop an appreciation for the classics.
