Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The third of the Disney Channel TV movies inspired by Marylyn Sadler and Roger Bollen's novel Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, Zenon: Z3 once again stars Kristen Storms as the title character, a "typical" teenager from the year 2054 A.D. who lives on a space station with her family and friends. In this one, Zenon aspires to attend the Moonstock music festival, and to that end she enters the Galactic Teen Supreme Contest. At first, Zenon thinks that the only roadblock to her success is her snotty rival Bronley Hale (Glen McMillan), but soon she finds herself sidetracked by the efforts of space ecologist Sage Borealis (Ben Easter) to prevent further colonization of the Moon. As it happens, however, the problems of Bronley and Sage don't amount to a hill of beans when a hitherto unsuspected villain appears, intent upon destroying the universe. Many of the film's biggest laughs are delivered by little Alyson Morgan as Zenon's precocious cousin and "biggest fan" Dasha. Filmed in Capetown, South Africa, Zenon: Z3 first aired on June 11, 2004, doing quite well in the ratings despite wall-to-wall coverage of Ronald Reagan's funeral on the other channels.
