ABC pays tribute to the wonderful world of Disney
From the looks of the schedule, ABC is showing mostly newer Disney films. While I love films like Monsters Inc., I wish ABC would pay tribute to the older Disney movies like Robin Hood, The Sword in the Stone, and Cinderella.
I have the full schedule after the jump. The Disney extravaganza starts this coming Saturday, June 14th.
MONSTERS, INC. SATURDAY, JUNE 14 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET) -- John Goodman (voice of Sulley, Monsters, Inc.) is hosting the evening with a celebration of Pixar, showing five Pixar animation shorts along with all of the Pixar-themed attractions at the Disney parks. The broadcast premiere of the Pixar animation shorts will include the Academy Award-winning "For the Birds" and the Academy Award-nominated shorts "Luxo Jr.," "Lifted," "Mike's New Car," as well as the Hugo Award-nominated "Jack-Jack Attack."
CAMP ROCK SATURDAY, JUNE 21 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET) Jonas Brothers are hosting the evening with a special Cheetah Girls behind-the-scenes segment and their "One World" music video, a sneak peek at "High School Musical: Get in the Picture" and an exclusive "Making of the Jonas Brothers Burnin' Up" segment, as well as the premiere of the "Burnin' Up" music video from their new album, "A Little Bit Longer."
THE HAUNTED MANSION SATURDAY, JUNE 28 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) Miley Cyrus ("Hannah Montana") hosts a short segment featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the making of her new music video for "7 Things." Then Miley and music video director Brett Ratner introduce the video.
THE PRINCESS DIARIES 2: THE ROYAL ENGAGEMENT SATURDAY, JULY 12 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) A short segment featuring the Walt Disney classic, Sleeping Beauty, and a behind-the-scenes look at the film's restoration will be presented in coordination with the 50th Anniversary 2-Disc Platinum Disney DVD & Blu-ray Disc.
FREAKY FRIDAY SATURDAY, JULY 19 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) -- Jamie Lee Curtis (Tess Coleman, Freaky Friday) will host the evening and discuss her new film, Beverly Hills Chihuahua.
PETER PAN SATURDAY, AUGUST 2 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) Raven-Symon ("That's So Raven" & "College Road Trip") is hosting the evening, which features an exclusive sneak peek and a behind-the-scenes look at the all-new original film Tinker Bell, releasing on Disney DVD & Blu-ray Disc this fall. For the first time in history Tinker Bell will speak, and Raven-Symon fills the illuminating role of Iridessa, a light fairy.
See what I mean? They're showing Peter Pan which is a classic but other than that, they just have a segment of Sleeping Beauty (and it's for a promo anyway).
