Last November, we learned that a spin-off/sequel project for Boy Meets World was in development for Disney Channel. As "in development" doesn't mean an automatic greenlight to series, we've hung on every major bit of news for the project in the hopes that the pilot would eventually go to series. Signs pointed toward good news, but we had to wait for it. It's finally here. Girl Meets World has officially been ordered to series at Disney Channel.
The mouse is back in the house! Or he will be soon enough. For decades, Mickey Mouse has served as the face of all things Disney. But in terms of his presence as a cartoon character, he's a bit overshadowed by so many other film and television animated humans, animals and the like. It looks like Disney Channel's looking to remedy that with a series of 19 cartoon shorts that showcase the iconic mouse, beginning this summer.
We haven't seen a lot of Ben Savage on the small screen in recent years, but the 32-year-old actor is still remembered well for his role as Cory Matthews, the lead character in ABC's 90s sitcom Boy Meets World. And there's a chance he could reprise that role, should things work out for the sequel Disney Channel is reportedly trying to develop.
Fans awaiting their first full look at the new animated adventure in the TRON universe don't have to wait any longer. The upcoming series called TRON: Uprising still doesn't hit television screens for another month but the prelude, TRON: Uprising, Beck's Beginning, is already online and almost a full week before its premiere. Disney has uploaded the entire episode to introduce the ensuing series that is set between 1982's TRON and 2010's TRON: Legacy.
Say what you will about Disney, but it is one well-run company. To elaborate, it is one extremely productive, well-run company that now has a brand new foothold in another part of the world. Disney announced today the company is set to join up with UTH Russia, a media holding company in the aforementioned country. Disney will take a 49 percent share of the ad-supported channel and UTH will nab the remaining 51 percent.
I have a love-hate relationship with the Disney Channel. On one hand, they have allowed me to doze on the couch many a pre-dawn morning while my kids watched Imagination Movers enraptured. On the other hand, well, Hannah Montana. And I can only be thankful that my kids now sleep until sunrise and then head to school since Disney Channel has just given the green light to a talking dog project
Phineas and Ferb is anything but boring, but it is a rarity on the cable network. So, it’s no surprise Disney Television Animation has locked down creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, for a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract. As part of the deal the two creators will be involved with the Phineas and Ferb feature film currently in developed. The two are planning a spinoff series, as well as a brand new pilot. They’ll be making a bit of money, but it looks like there will be a lot of work involved.
Apparently, all it takes is doing your hair up like Carla Gugino to land your own show on the Disney Channel. The tactic is certainly working for network worker bee Debby Ryan who, after years of playing fourth fiddle on Suite Life on Deck, has finally landed her own pilot
American Idol goes Disney this week with guest mentor Miley Cyrus signing on to help the Top 11 Finalists prepare for Billboard No. 1 Hits Week. Then, on the results show, she'll be joined by fellow Disney Channel stars Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato, performing their single, "Make a Wave." Cyrus will perform "When I Look At You."
This Sunday, Hannah Montana is set to feature a guest appearance from Two and a Half Men’s Jon Cryer. We have some details about the episode, including a clip featuring Cryer.
Pop singer Jordin Sparks is headed for the S.S. Tipton later this month. Disney announced today that the American Idol champ is set to perform on The Suite Life on Deck. We’ve got a couple of video clips from the episode along with some details about Sparks’ appearance on the show.
Well, it’s about time! It was announced today that The Walt Disney Company and Hulu are in the process of closing a deal which, among other things, will mean Hulu will eventually include ABC shows on their site. Why is this such a big deal? I mean, can’t we just watch ABC’s shows on their website? Sure you can, if you can get the player to work without it freezing up.
It’s Miley!!! Yeah, I rarely take an interest in the latest going-ons with Miley Cyrus and her Disney Channel show Hanna Montana, however, since this Sunday’s episode concerns a certain second-place winner of last season’s American Idol, that definitely makes the show a tad bit more appealing.
It just won’t stop. Disney has announced that High School Musical 4 is on the way in 2010. After a brief stop in theaters the show is returning to its Disney Channel roots. Too bad not a single original cast member is slated to be back.
