Disney Channel and Disney News have signed a licensing agreement to produce a Disney channel special, titled “Disneylands,” to air on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney Home Entertainment, beginning this fall.
The special, to air Monday through Thursday evenings at 11 p.m., will feature guests from the Disney parks and theme parks, along with Disney World guests.
A special episode will be available to all subscribers who subscribe to Disney’s Disney channel and DisneyNews.com.
Disney News will have exclusive access to the special, including the chance to submit comments to the pilot episode.
“Disney’s the new Disney Channel,” said John K. Williams, President, Disney Channel.
The Disney Channel is a network of channels including Disney Channel Classic, Disney Classic Movies, Disney Junior, Disney Princess, Disney Kids, and Disney Junior Kids. “
The new Disney channel will bring the magic of Disney to millions of people across the world,” said Williams.
The Disney Channel is a network of channels including Disney Channel Classic, Disney Classic Movies, Disney Junior, Disney Princess, Disney Kids, and Disney Junior Kids.
Disney Channel has more than 12 million subscribers and is the most-watched channel in the U.S. with nearly 14 million total viewers.
Disney is also the parent company of ESPN, Disney Music, and ESPN2, the premium television network of the Walt Disney Company.
The deal is expected to close by the end of October.
The news comes as Disney, which is currently in the midst of a global restructuring, faces a critical funding shortfall.
In a memo to investors, Chief Executive Bob Iger warned of a $200 million shortfall in the third quarter, which he blamed on the fact that the company will not be able to complete a $300 million capital campaign, which would be required to meet its debt obligations and capital expenditures for the year.
Disney will also have to fund its $5 billion investment in its Disney Movies franchise in the fourth quarter, he said.
“With this decision, we are taking the bold step of releasing an unprecedented offering to bring back Disney Movies on the Disney Channel for all to enjoy,” said Iger.
The channel will be the first to feature a live-action Disney feature film.
The network has already launched a new live-event programming slate with live music, video, and sports, including Disney’s Mickey’s First 100 Days.
Disney announced plans to release an original animated series from Pixar titled “Pixar’s The Incredibles” later this year, which will be followed by an animated series and a live action feature film from Lionsgate Studios.
“Today’s news represents a major milestone for Disney Channel, and is further validation for the team who have been at Disney since its launch in 2008,” said Disney Channel CEO Scott Aukerman.
Disney has a huge future ahead of it.””
I look forward to seeing the new ‘Disneyland’ on Disney Home and all of our fans.
Disney has a huge future ahead of it.”
