Zenon Series on "Disney Channel's Original movies"


Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century" was based on the children's book by Marilyn Sadler.

Kirsten Storms heads the cast as Zenon Kar, 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 her earthbound pals to return to her "real" home with evidence that the "respectable" Mr. Windom is up to no good. -The New York Times 

Zenon the Zequel


While on Alien Patrol, Zenon comes in contact with aliens.

In the third of the Disney Channel Zenon Original TV movies, Zenon: Z3 once again stars Kirsten Storms.

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, but soon she finds herself sidetracked by the efforts of space ecologist Sage Borealis 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.
