Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced that the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, Teen Beach 2, will arrive on DVD the same day it is scheduled to premiere on Disney Channel, June 26, 2015 (now available for pre-order).
When a science experiment goes awry, teen best friends Shelby and Cyd gain the power to travel back and forth in time, although they can’t quite control their powers just yet, in the new sitcom ‘Best Friends Whenever,’ debuting Friday, June 26 on Disney Channel. The series, starring Lauren Taylor and Landry Bender as time-traveling teen besties Shelby and Cyd, premieres immediately following the highly anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie Teen Beach 2 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT).
Production is revving up on the animated series ‘Mickey and the Roadster Racers,’ a madcap car-racing adventure for preschoolers featuring Disney’s #1 star, Mickey Mouse, and his pals Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, Daisy and Donald. Slated to debut in 2017 on Disney Junior channels and programming blocks around the world, the series takes the Sensational Six and their uniquely personalized vehicles on humorous high-spirited races around the globe plus hometown capers in Hot Dog Hills. The announcement was made today by Nancy Kanter, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide.
Disney Junior will introduce ‘Muppet Moments,’ an entirely new short-form series, to Disney Junior beginning April 3, 2015. The new series will feature the Muppets interacting with young children, discussing ordinary, every day topics, like ‘apologies, favorite foods, Obamacare and manners’ — well, three out of four anyway.
To celebrate the announcement, two videos have been released. The first talks about the series itself, while the second features the Muppets in some never-before-seen audition tapes as they try out for some of the more popular and well-known roles of programs currently featured on the channel.
According to the report in the Wall Street Journal, the series will feature Scrooge, Huey, Dewey, Louie and Donald, as well as Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuack, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell & Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle, Bouncer Beagle), Mrs. Beakley and Webbigail ‘Webby’ Vanderquack.
We will provide more information as it becomes available to us.

Before Hasbro begins producing Disney Princess and Frozen dolls for Disney in 2016, they will debut a full line of dolls and accessories for the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, ‘Descendants.’ At a recent visit to their International Toy Fair showroom in New York City, we got a preview of the full line of dolls and accessories that will launch later this year in support of the film. The dolls were presented in a fun, immersive environment which also featured a couple of the props used in the film (and reproduced as doll accessories). Below you will find a gallery of our photos from the event as well as a video tour and close-up looks at each of the dolls.
Just ahead of tomorrow’s start of the International Toy Fairy in New York City, Hasbro has released a first look at its upcoming line of fashion dolls based on this year’s Disney Channel Original Movie, ‘Descendants.’ Pictures here are Mal and Evie, daughters of Maleficent and the Evil Queen respectively.
Available in stores in Fall 2015, the dolls are based off their unique look in the telefilm and each will come an iconic locket and sticker. They will retail for $19.99 each.
In an unprecedented move, Disney Store has launched several day-and-date merchandise items for the new Disney Junior animated series, ‘Miles from Tomorrowland,’ which officially premieres today.
Fourteen items in all have been released including plush for Miles, his robo-ostrich pal Merc, Callisto family friend Blodger and Tomorrowland Transit Authority agent Watson and Crick. Other items include a figurine play set, a Miles role-play outfit and several clothing items.
Inspired by Latin cultures, Princess Elena of Avalor, a confident and compassionate teenager in an enchanted fairytale kingdom inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore, will be introduced in a special episode of Disney Junior’s hit series ‘Sofia the First’ scheduled for a 2016 premiere. That exciting story arc will usher in the 2016 launch of the animated series ‘Elena of Avalor,’ a production of Disney Television Animation. The announcement was made today by Nancy Kanter, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide.
