DisneyVersary 2017 — Disney releases DisneyNow, a new app that combines live TV, on-demand, games and music


Disney’s streaming service may still be years away, but the company this week has launched a new app for streaming Disney’s series, Disney Channel movies, live TV and music all under one roof, with the release of DisneyNow. The app is designed to consolidate Disney’s existing “Watch” streaming apps into one, including Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior and Radio Disney.

That suite of TV apps, aimed at kids 2 to 14 years old, have been downloaded over 40 million times since 2012, the company says. To some extent, it made sense to keep them as separate properties – after all, what a 2-year old wants to watch will be very different from a young teenager.

But times are changing. While it made sense for each property to have its own space on linear TV, it’s more cumbersome to have multiple apps installed on our devices for access to content from a single provider.

To address this problem, Disney has added personalization features within the new DisneyNow app so kids (or parents) can customize the app to their programming interests. In addition, there’s a “Disney Junior Only” mode that parents can enable if they want to keep the app focused on preschool-appropriate programming.

What’s also interesting about the new app is that it gives you an idea of how Disney’s forthcoming streaming service may work.


In DisneyNow, for example, each user can set up a profile for themselves, and select from over 180 Disney Emoji avatar character poses to associate with their account. Kids can then customize their setup by choosing their favorite characters and shows, and then receive recommendations about what to watch next.

The app will also remember where users left off, so they can resume watching the next time they log in.

And like Disney’s upcoming streaming service has planned, DisneyNow app offers a combination of content – not just shows and movies. There are also games, music, and special performances available, too.


The app will include the ability to watch live, linear TV channels, as well as on-demand, in-season TV shows from its networks, like: “Andi Mack,” “Raven’s Home,” “Bizaardvark,” “Stuck in the Middle,” “Tangled: The Series”; Disney Junior’s “Vampirina,” “Elena of Avalor,” “Mickey and the Roadster Racers,” “The Lion Guard,” “Puppy Dog Pals” and “PJ Masks”; and Disney XD’s “DuckTales,” “Star Wars Rebels,” “Walk the Prank,” “MECH-X4” and “Milo Murphy’s Law.”

A selection of Disney Channel TV movies, curated from over 100 titles, will also be available, along with over 60 games featuring Disney characters, like the “DuckTales” adventure game “Duckburg Quest,” Princess Elena of Avalor in “Flight of the Jaquins” and the Villain Kids in the “Descendants 2 Wicked Style” activity.

Disney says it will release new games to the platform on a monthly basis.


Radio Disney performances and in-studio appearances will be added to this app, as well, including those from Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Camila Cabello, and others. The app is ad-supported via sponsorships, traditional or interactive TV commercials and sweepstakes, as there’s no subscription fee to use it.

However, DisneyNow is not an over-the-top streaming service, like the one Disney has planned for its 2019 release, nor will it include any theatrical movies, like those from big brands such as Pixar, Marvel, or Star Wars. Those are being saved for Disney’s big Netflix competitor. (It does have sections for Marvel and Star Wars though, for their TV cartoon series.)








While some content in DisneyNow available for free, to watch the full lineup, users will need to authenticate using their pay TV credentials from a supported cable, satellite or digital programming distributor.

The good news for cord cutters is that DisneyNow does work with your YouTube TV, PlayStation Vue, DirecTV Now, or Hulu credentials.

Of course, you could just watch Disney via those streaming apps’, but it’s better to install the DisneyNow app for the kids, so they don’t have to stumble through adult programming to find their favorite shows.

DisneyNow is a free download on iOS, Apple TV, Android, Fire tablets, and Roku. A version for Fire TV, Android TV and the web will arrive next year.

Jenna Ortega & More Announced As Cast For Disney Junior’s “Elena Of Avalor”

disney-princess-elena-jan-29-2014

A couple of days ago, there was an announcement of more of the cast for the upcoming Disney Junior animated series Elena of Avalor. Congrats are in order to Jenna Ortega from Stuck in the Middle, Chris Parnell, Yvette Nicole Brown and more! The show is set to premiere sometime this year. Read more here about Elena of Avalor.

Below is the press release from Disney Junior with this great news:

Later this year, Princess Elena of Avalor, the first Disney princess inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore, will make her debut in a special episode of Disney Junior’s hit series “Sofia the First,” followed shortly thereafter by the launch of the animated series “Elena of Avalor.” As previously announced, the series will follow Elena (voiced by Aimee Carrero of Freeform’s “Young & Hungry”), a 16-year-old ascendant to the throne of the fairytale kingdom of Avalor.

Additional casting was announced today. Jenna Ortega (“Jane the Virgin,” Disney Channel’s upcoming series “Stuck in the Middle”) will star as Elena’s younger sister, Princess Isabel; and Chris Parnell (“Saturday Night Live,” “Archer”), Yvette Nicole Brown (“Community”) and Carlos Alazraqui (Disney Junior’s “Sheriff Callie’s Wild West”) voice Migs, Luna and Skylar respectively, magical flying creatures called Jaquins who support Elena as she learns how to rule her kingdom.

Also joining the cast are: Emiliano Díez (“George Lopez”) as Elena’s grandfather Francisco; Julia Vera (“General Hospital”) as her grandmother Luisa; Christian Lanz (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Elena’s uncle and Royal Advisor Duke Esteban; Jillian Rose Reed (“Awkward.”) as Elena’s best friend Naomi; Joseph Haro (“Awkward.”) as another of Elena’s close friends Mateo, a wizard-in-training; Jorge Diaz (“Days of our Lives”) as Elena’s friend and rising star of the Royal Guard Gabe; Keith Ferguson (Disney Junior’s “Sofia the First”) as Zuzo, a mysterious and wily spirit animal that acts as a link between the human and spirit worlds; and Joe Nunez (“Bridesmaids”) as Armando, a frazzled palace servant who helps Elena on her journey to the throne.

The series was created by Craig Gerber (“Sofia the First”), who also serves as executive producer. Silvia Cardenas Olivas (“Moesha,” “The Brothers Garcia”) is the story editor, and Elliot M. Bour (“The Little Engine That Could”) is the supervising director. The series’ cultural advisors are Diane Rodriguez, Associate Artistic Director of Centre Theatre Group and co-founder of the theatre ensemble Latins Anonymous, who was recently appointed by President Obama to be a member of the National Council on the Arts; and Marcela Davison Aviles, Managing Director and Executive Producer, El Camino Project, an international Latino arts initiative.

Kermit and Co. Spontaneously Converse With Small Kids On Disney Junior's New Muppet Moments Shorts

To hear Nancy Kanter tell the story, it was her favorite part of working on Sesame Street -- being able to walk down to the stage while scenes with the Muppets were being shot and then listening in as the younger members of that show's cast interact with those much-beloved characters.

"Those pieces when -- whether it was Kermit or Grover -- you saw a kid interact with the Muppets, they've always been one of my favorites because they are so genuine," Kanter recalled during a recent phone call.

They were unscripted, so obviously you just never know what was going to happen, what's going to come out between the Muppets and that kid. And sometimes it was pure gold. That suspension of disbelief that kids can do so easily when they are just sitting next to a Muppet and really believing that that character is talking to them without any awareness of acknowledgment of the puppeteer that is sitting 6 inches away from them. I always really loved that aspect of childhood that only the Muppets can bring out. But that was back in the late 1990s when Nancy was working at the Children's Television Workshop as the executive producer of Sesame Street's TV specials and direct-to-video productions. Now jump ahead to 2014, when Kanter is the executive vice president of original programming and general manager of Disney Junior Worldwide. And that arm of The Walt Disney Company's vast media empire is casting around for ways to best make use of Kermit & Co.


To Kanter's way of thinking, the solution as to how best use the Muppets over on Disney Junior was obvious.

"It's been a while since the Muppets themselves have been in something that was very much directed just to kids. Mostly because they've been making movies like The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted, projects that were intended for the family audience. And here at Disney Junior, we hadn't done anything with puppets or Muppets for a long time. So it seemed like there was an opportunity here that was worth exploring," Nancy recalled.

So we pitched this idea to the Muppet folks about recreating some of those kid interaction moments in a brand-new series of shorts that then would be made specifically for the Disney Junior audience. And they really responded to it. The puppeteers themselves loved the idea of going back into the studio and seeing what they could come up with. So now it's November of 2014. And Disney has brought the Muppeteers together with 35 - 40 preschoolers on a soundstage in Southern California. And for four days, they shoot footage of these kids spontaneously interacting with these characters. And the end result was Disney Junior's Muppet Moments. A new short-form series which premieres today on the Disney Channel (with four new shorts bowing at 8:25 a.m., 8:55 a.m., 9:25 a.m. and 9:55 a.m. respectively) made up of completely unscripted conversations between these characters and young kids. As they discuss everyday topics that range from favorite food, apologies and manners.


"Mind you, when you're working with small children, you obviously can't interview them for too long or you then get diminishing returns. So what we'd do is bring these kids in, have them talk with Miss Piggy & Kermit for a little while and then let them take a break. Then after a while, we'd bring these same kids back to the stage and then have them talk with Gonzo & Pepe," Kanter stated. "And what was fascinating to me was to watch as some kids would spark to a particular Muppet and then have a far breezier, easier conversation with that character than they would with another Muppet."

"And the Muppeteers? They're incredible improv artists. So when their conversation with that kid would sudden veer off in an interesting direction, the Muppeteers just went with it. They could turn on a dime," Nancy continued. "And this new series of shorts is a real testament to the talent of those puppeteers. They have this incredible ability to engage in the most genuine, child-like way. Which is why -- when you're looking at these kids on camera -- you can see that they're looking straight at that Muppet thinking that he or she is real."

Of course, what's great about doing anything with these particular set of characters is that they have the ability to perform on multiple levels. So that these Disney Junior's Muppet Moments are genuinely entertaining for children three to five year olds, there's also enough off-the-cuff humor being thrown in there to entertain Mom & Dad should they wander through the room while this new series of shorts are playing.



"Honestly, I don't think that I've laughed that hard at a shoot in ages. As a life-long fan of the Muppets, It was a genuine pleasure to see these characters in action again," Kanter enthused.

You know, people are claiming that children are far more sophisticated these days. They insist that kids are getting older younger. But then when you put them in front of a Kermit or a Fozzie Bear and you know, a kid's a kid. When we were shooting these new 'Muppet Moments' shorts, those kids were just totally there. Captivated and wanting to have a conversation with these characters. That was the magic that we hoped to capture with this project. Me personally, I'm thrilled with the way these shorts turned out and hopefully there are more to come.

Starting today, Disney Junior will be airing Muppet Moments daily now through Friday, May 8. New shorts will continue to roll out throughout 2015 and will also be available on WATCH Disney Junior.

In information from Disney Junior, Debby Ryan (“Jessie”) will be voicing a character in their new animated series called “Goldie & Bear!” That’s so cool! We are happy for her!! Debby just recently wrapped on 4 seasons of the ever-so-popular series “Jessie” and is also working on new music. It will be nice to hear her voice on another Disney show. Read more: Production has begun on Disney Junior’s “Goldie & Bear,” a fairytale-inspired animated series for preschoolers. Slated to debut in Fall 2015, the series follows the adventures of newfound friends Goldie and Bear, following the renowned porridge incident of “Goldilocks and The Three Bears.” The announcement was made today by Nancy Kanter, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide. Kanter said, “Disney Junior embraces strong storytelling and memorable characters, and nothing reflects that more than classic fairytales. We are excited to continue the story of ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’ from a new perspective and hope to inspire kids to create their own ‘happily-ever-afters’ by giving them new stories featuring classic characters they already know and love.” Set in the Fairytale Forest, the series follows the adventures of plucky Goldie and her best friend, Bear, as they encounter well-known characters from fairytales and nursery rhymes, including Little Red Riding Hood, Humpty Dumpty and The Three Little Pigs. Maria Tatar, John L. Loeb Professor of Germanic Languages and Literatures at Harvard University and Disney Junior Advisory Board Member, serves as the series consultant, advising on storytelling, fairytales and folklore. The importance of storytelling is central to the show’s curriculum, with episodes referencing original fairytales and nursery rhymes while providing new insights into their narratives and underlying messages. Throughout the series, Goldie and Bear model friendship and community, demonstrate creative problem-solving and exhibit critical thinking skills such as logic and strategy. Natalie Lander (“The Middle”) stars as Goldie, alongside Georgie Kidder (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) as Bear. Recurring guest stars include Lesley Nicol (“Downton Abbey”) as Fairy Godmother and Debby Ryan (“Jessie”) as Thumbelina. Miles Brown and Marsai Martin (“black-ish”) appear as Jack & Jill. “Goldie & Bear” was created by children’s book author Jorge Aguirre (“Giants Beware!” series) and developed for television by Aguirre and Rick Gitelson (“Handy Mandy”). Joe Ansolabehere (“Recess”) is story editor, and songs are composed by Rob Cantor (from the band Tally Hall). Chris Gilligan (“Frankenweenie”) serves as supervising director and executive producer. The series is produced by Milk Barn Productions in association with Disney Junior.
