A new teen musical romance has arrived in the Philippines.

"Status Update" is definitely the answer to your young heart who's hungry for a magical, musical, and feel-good movie.

To take your excitement to a higher level, we've written down the exciting things to look forward to in the film.

1. A teen romance-comedy film.

If you're a fan of "High School Musical," "Glee," or any feel-good, musical movie, this new flick is definitely for you. Mababalik nito ang lakas "maka-high school" kilig sa pakiramdam mo! ❤

2. Two famous U.K. Disney stars in one film.

Ross Lynch

Remember Austin Moon from Disney Channel's original series "Austin and Ally"? Yep, that's him. Ross is not just an actor, but also a singer-songwriter. He sang the theme songs of his past TV projects, and of course, of "Status Update".

Olivia Holt

She is Kim of Disney XD's martial arts comedy "Kickin' It" and the lead actress of Disney Channel Original Movie "Girl vs. Monster". Like Ross, Olivia is also a singer. She is the voice behind "Carry On," the theme song of the 2014 Disneynature film "Bears," Morgan of "Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast," and her latest hit song is "Generous," released last year.

3. Sexy Hollywood actress Courtney Eaton

She is Ross' ex-GF in real life and we see no problem with it. At least, they can give us real "kilig"! ❤

Courtney is known for her role in the 2015 film "Mad Max: Fury Road" as Cheedo, and as Zaya in the 2016 film "Gods of Egypt."

4. They got the best on board.

Director Scott Speer

You'll definitely see great moves because he's the director of hit dance film "Step Up Revolution." He has directed several music videos and has won numerous awards too.

He's also best in giving his audience fresh, young "kilig". Remember the 2017 film "Midnight Sun"? He led that.

"Status Update" is also from the writers of "17 Again" which starred Zac Efron.

5. New music

Music that you can sing and dance to at the same time? They have it! Just stay tuned for their official soundtrack worth adding to your playlist. ❤

6. Storyline

Super relatable! For once in your life, siguradong nangarap ka. This isn't just a fantasy film. You'll definitely have takeaways after watching it.

"Status Update" follows the story of Kyle (Lynch), a Mr. Nobody high schooler who stumbles upon a new smartphone application that will bring all of his wildest fantasies to life.

However, can he really keep everything the magical APP gave him until the end?
