The expected name for the sequel is not yet determined due to a legal dispute on the movie, so it will either be called Coinflip or Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.
The story begins when Lovato and the Jonas brothers, Nick, Joe and Kevi, all return to Camp Rock only to find that some of the instructors and students have ditched Camp Rock for the rival camp across the lake, Camp Star. Newcomer Matthew ‘Mdot’ Finley plays the dominant hotshot singer at Camp Star who challenges Camp Rock to a musical showdown.
But there is also another twist in the movie. Taking on a similar plot from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Nate (Nick) falls for Dana (newcomer Chloe Bridges, an accomplished 17-year-old classical pianist), who is the daughter of Camp Star’s owner.
Andrea S on working on CR2: ‘It was a good experience because you got to see how movies are filmed and how that type of industry works. It’s cool to be part of something that’s that big.’ There was extra security to protect the Jonas Brothers from crazed fans or stalkers: ‘You could obviously tell [the Jonas Brothers] were there. You’d have to be pretty dim to not know it.’
