Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced that ‘Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Battle for the Book!’ — the next primetime special for the Disney Junior animated hit, which will air on October 26 — will be available to own on DVD on January 6, 2015.
Jake and his crew of kid pirates take flight over London in Disney Junior’s ‘Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Battle for the Book!’ a primetime special premiering Sunday, October 26 at 6:00 pm ET/PT on Disney Channel and Disney Junior. Beloved Disney heritage characters Wendy, John and Michael Darling make their series debut in the music-filled special, with Maia Mitchell (Disney Channel’s ‘Teen Beach Movie’ and ABC Family’s ‘The Fosters’) voicing the role of Wendy and performing new original song ‘Once Upon A Time.’ Peter Pan and Tinker Bell will also appear.
It’s been more than a year since we first learned about ‘Miles from Tomorrowland,’ an upcoming animated series from Disney Junior, which is slated for a 2015 debut. Since that time, not much else has been revealed about the program beyond the synopsis, but today we have acquired a few additional details thanks to a couple of upcoming books announced by Disney Publishing Worldwide.
Ahead of any official announcement, Amazon has begun listing ‘Mickey Mouse: Season One‘ with a release date of December 2, 2014, although it’s worth noting that Walmart (where the artwork came from in this case) has been listing it for an August 26, 2014 release for some time now.
According to the new listing, the DVD will contain nineteen of the shorts from the award-winning series’ first season as well as a bonus ‘making of’ featurette. The bonus feature, ‘The Making of Disney Mickey Mouse,’ features creators discussing ‘the fun of working with one of the world’s most beloved and recognized characters as they create a fresh new take on an iconic character — Mickey Mouse — for the new millennium.’
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced it will be bringing the holiday episode from the popular Disney Junior franchise, ‘Holiday in Enchancia‘ to DVD on November 4, 2014 (now available for pre-order). The DVD will consist of the special plus four additional episodes as well as a free light-up holiday ornament. The episode has previously been released in book form.
When a snowstorm prevents King Roland from returning home in time for the holidays, Sofia leads her family on a brave expedition to find him. Princess Aurora from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty makes a special appearance to help Sofia and her animal friends reunite the royal family.
Ahead of any official announcements, we have learned that the global television debut of the hour-long special, ‘Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion‘ will premiere on Disney Channels around the world on Friday, October 3 at 9:00 pm ET/PT. Airing in 163 countries and in 34 languages, the series itself will also begin airing on Monday, October 13, 2014 at 9:00 pm ET/PT on Disney XD.
One day after the series begins airing, on October 14, the ‘Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion’ episode will be available to own on DVD — now available for pre-order.
Two years ago, ‘Gravity Falls’ made its San Diego Comic-Con debut. Then a fledgling animated series with just a few episodes aired, the series was intended to be spotlighted along with a few other Disney Television Animation (DTVA) shows in the panel held in a relatively small room. Much to everyone’s surprise — especially the series’ creator, Alex Hirsch, however, it was already a breakout hit with the fans and Stitch Kingdom is pleased to be able to say we were there (you can read the full report here). Fast forward to 2014 and ‘Gravity Falls’ was featured in its own panel, easily playing to a much larger, standing room only crowd.
Ahead of any official announcements, Walmart today began accepting pre-orders for two upcoming DVD releases: ‘Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion‘ and ‘Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars.’ Neither title offers a release date at this time, although the timing could not be more appropriate given the start of the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con.
Presumably ‘Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion‘ is the full title of the upcoming hour-long special that will air in October, serving as the lead-in for the Disney XD series which takes place between Episodes III and IV in the Star Wars saga.
Just ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, Lucasfilm has just released an extended trailer for its upcoming animated series, ‘Star Wars Rebels,’ which will debut as a one hour special on Disney XD in October.
The Jedi have been wiped out and the Empire spreads tyranny through the galaxy. Hope runs thin. But on the small planet of Lothal a big change is looming. A group of rebels meet a 14-year-old con artist named Ezra and soon it’s clear their destinies are linked. Aboard their ship, the Ghost, Ezra and the rebels embark on an adventure to ignite a rebellion and strike back against the Empire.
