Lesson Learned: Mummies aren’t scary—they’re friendly!
The very first Disney Channel Original Movie as we know them, Under Wraps takes a horror concept and turns it into a kids comedy because… sure. A bunch of kids find a mummy in the basement of a dead man’s house and are rightfully scared at first, until they find out he’s actually a good mummy who is just silly and clumsy.
The owner of the house was faking his death to avoid paying taxes and he wants his mummy back, so the kids have to keep hide the mummy from their neighborhood (AKA keep him… under wraps), and the mummy also falls in love with a girl mummy. Pretty boilerplate mummy movie stuff. —AH
