With summer vacations round the corner, kids’ channels are planning an array of shows and activities to keep them indoors. Disney Channel has unveiled new shows, new episodes, one mega contest and an interactive dance segment as part of its summer bonanza.
The special new shows this summer include ‘The Wizards of Waverley Place’, ‘Life with Derek’, ‘Magical Do Re Mi’, ‘Sanya’, ‘Being Ian’, and ‘Teamo Supremo’, while the new episodes are ‘Hannah Montana’, ‘Art Attack’ and ‘Shararat’.
Aparna Bhosle, Director-Programming and Production, The Walt Disney Television International (India), said, “Disney Channel’s programming line-up promises that there would be no room for a single dull moment all through this summer. The channel showcases a great mix of animation and live action for its tween audiences while providing them unique opportunities to interact with the channel through music and dance.”
Starting April 28, Disney Channel is calling all its tween viewers to save the channel from Professor Silencor’s inharmonious attack. Professor Silencor is a character created by the channel, who hates music and dance, and plans to dampen all the summer fun from the channel by wiping out all the music ‘masti’. To defuse this unmusical plan, the leader of the World Dance Council has summoned his hero dancers to fight Prof Silencor in a Summer Dance off.
Disney Channel fans will need to spot and thereby power up these dancers and quickly report their unique codes via SMS or calling up specified numbers during the dance off Monday to Sunday, between 10 am and 9 pm.
Then there is ‘Nach to the Groove’, where well-known choreographer Shiamak Davar would set the mood for the groove at the start of each segment. And young dancer Kabir Arora, along with eight of his friends, would demonstrate the dance moves.
This summer, the channel also plans a gamut of movies such as ‘Chronicles of Narnia – Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’, Disney Channel original movie ‘Minutemen’, ‘Cheetah Girls’ and ‘High School Musical’, among others.
