"The movie industry is changing in terms of not only who teens want to see on screen, but also how, when and where they want to watch,” said Brian Robbins, Expelled producer and founder of AwesomenessTV. “Expelled gives fans of this new generation of stars a chance to see them on the big screen...or whatever screen they prefer.”
Dallas plays Felix, a legendary prankster who seems to always charm his way out of trouble. However, after his third strike at school, the principal has had enough and expels him. Never defeated, Felix resorts to his infamous ways and devises a plan with his brother (Johns), best friend (Shively), new friend (Johnson) and classmate (Russett) to convince his parents he’s a stellar student.
