Disney Channel Renews ‘Star Vs. The Forces of Evil’ for Season 4

Disney Channel has ordered a season four pickup for Disney TVA’s Annie Award-nominated “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” from creator Daron Nefcy.

The fourth season of “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” will follow teen princess from another dimension Star Butterfly (voiced by Eden Sher) and her best friend Marco Diaz (voiced by Adam McArthur) as they continue their adventures in Mewni and explore new dimensions. However, as things change in the royal palace Star will soon learn that running the kingdom is far more complicated than she once thought. Nefcy serves as executive producer. In its third season, “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” ranks as Disney XD’s #1 series in Kids 6-11 and Kids 9-14. The hardcover book “Star vs. the Forces of Evil: The Magic Book of Spells,” created by Disney Press, will be released in July 2018.

Disney Channel Launching Two New Animated Series

Disney Channel has ordered two original animated series – “Amphibia,” from Annie Award-winning director Matt Braly (Disney’s “Gravity Falls”), and “The Owl House,” from Dana Terrace, one of Variety’s “10 Animators to Watch,” whose credits include Disney’s “DuckTales” and “Gravity Falls.” Both series, slated to premiere in 2019, are produced by award-winning Disney Television Animation (TVA). The announcement was made today by Eric Coleman, senior vice president, Original Programming and general manager, Disney Television Animation.

Coleman said, “‘Amphibia’ and ‘The Owl House’ are both set in wildly imaginative worlds and share hallmarks of great Disney storytelling, including fantastical elements and memorable characters. Matt and Dana each bring a unique sensibility to their shows unlike anything else on TV right now.”

“Amphibia” is a comedy series that chronicles the adventures of 13-year-old, self-centered Anne Boonchuy who is magically transported to the fictitious world of Amphibia, a rural marshland full of frog-people. With the help of an excitable young frog named Sprig, Anne will transform into a hero and discover the first true friendship of her life. Braly serves as executive producer.

Executive-produced by Terrace, “The Owl House” is a horror-comedy series that follows Luz, a self-assured teenage human girl who accidentally stumbles upon a portal to the Demon Realm where she befriends a rebellious witch, Eda, and an adorably tiny warrior, King. Despite not having magical abilities, Luz pursues her dream of becoming a witch by serving as Eda’s apprentice at the Owl House and ultimately finds a new family in an unlikely setting. 


Walt Disney Animation Studios’ ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Airs Tonight on ABC

Ahead of the highly anticipated sequel, “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2,” releasing in theaters on Nov. 21, 2018, “Wreck-It Ralph” takes us on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey on FRIDAY, FEB. 23 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.

For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by Fix-It Felix Jr. (voice of Jack McBrayer), the good-guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. Tired of playing the role of a bad guy, Ralph takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a journey across the arcade through multiple generations of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.

On his quest, Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart-racing game Sugar Rush, who may just be his first real friend. But everything changes when a deadly enemy is unleashed, threatening the entire arcade and Vanellope herself. Ralph finally gets his chance to save the day – but can he do it in time?

“Wreck-It Ralph” won the PGA Award for outstanding producer of an animated theatrical motion picture as well as five Annie Awards, including best animated feature, director, screenplay and actor. The film was named best animated feature by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, earned outstanding achievement in casting for an animated feature by the Casting Society of America and won the Kids’ Choice Award for favorite animated movie. The film was also nominated for an Oscar® and Golden Globe® for best animated feature.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Wreck-It Ralph” is directed by Emmy® and Oscar-winning director Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “The Simpsons,” “Futurama”) and produced by Oscar-winning Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Bolt,” “Lilo & Stitch”).


‘Muppet Babies’ Will Premiere on March 23 on Disney Channel

The highly-anticipated ‘Muppet Babies’ reboot will premiere with two back-to-back episodes on Friday, March 23, 2018 at 10am on the Disney Channel.

Based on the original Emmy® Award-winning series, the all-new CG-animated “Muppet Babies” chronicles the hilarious playroom antics of the young Kermit the Frog, Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal and brand-new Muppet Baby, Summer Penguin.

“Muppet Babies” is co-production between Disney Junior, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media’s Publishing and Digital Media group (DCPI), and The Muppets Studio. Tom Warburton (Disney’s “The 7D”) is executive producer, Matt Danner (Disney’s “Gravity Falls”) is supervising director, and Emmy Award-winner Eric Shaw (“SpongeBob SquarePants”) is story editor and co-producer. Andy Bean (“Puppy Dog Pals”) serves as the series’ songwriter/composer and Keith Horn (Disney’s “The 7D”) is co-composer.
