Disney has released the first trailer and images from its upcoming teen comedy/drama Prom. Starring Aimee Teegarden from the fantastic Friday Night Lights (seriously, if you haven’t watched this show, get on it) and relative newcomer Thomas McDonell, the film centers on a group of teenagers getting ready for their senior prom. Joe Nussbaum (Sydney White) directs from a script by Katie Welch (Stephen King’s The Dead Zone). The flick looks to have a small documentary-style element and focuses on high school seniors pontificating on the seminal importance of, you guessed it, prom. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and images, as well as an official synopsis of the film. Prom will hit theaters on April 29th, 2011.

At “Prom,” every couple has a story and no two are exactly alike. Several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches; “Prom” portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. For Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), it’s a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Fellow seniors Mei (Yin Chang) and Tyler (De’Vaughn Nixon) harbor secrets, while others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds one of high school’s most seminal events. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there’s only one “Prom.” Featuring an emerging ensemble cast and a powerful soundtrack, “Prom” hits theaters April 29, 2011.
