Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Produced for the Disney Channel cable service, Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century was based on the children's book by Marilyn Salder and Roger Bollen. Kristen Storms heads the cast as Zenon Car, a trouble-prone 13-year-old girl, who, in the year 2049 A.D., lives on a space station with the rest of her family. When she runs afoul of Parker Windom, the owner of the station, Zenon is determined to be "incorrigible," and as punishment is exiled to the worst place imaginable: the planet earth. After several painful weeks of adjustment to her new surroundings, Zenon enlists the aid of his earthbound pals to return to her "real" home with evidence that the "respectable" Mr. Windom is up to no good. Originally telecast on January 23, 1999, Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century was intended as the pilot for a weekly TV series -- and though this series never came to pass, the film was deemed worthy of a sequel the following year.
