Disney is trying take the unlucky image of Friday the 13th and turn it Funlucky instead with the premiere of several new offerings on August 13th!
Back to school will be coming for most kids, but there will still be some summer left to enjoy these new shows when they kick off on the Disney Channel and DisneyNOW beginning at 8PM EST/PST.
It will all start off with the premiere of the new Disney Channel Original Movie Spin starring Avantika as Rhea “a relatable Indian American teen who discovers her passion for creating DJ mixes that blend the rich textures of her South Asian culture and the world around her. Her life revolves around her eclectic group of friends, Molly, Watson and Ginger, her after-school coding club, her family’s Indian restaurant, and her tight-knit, multi-generational family, which includes her father Arvind, younger brother Rohan and her grandmother Asha. Everything changes when she falls for aspiring DJ Max and her long lost fervor for music is re-ignited. Rhea discovers that she has a natural gift for creating beats and producing music, but must find the courage to follow her true inner talent.”
Following Spin will be the premiere of the ne animated Descendants special Descendants: The Royal Wedding.
This will be the continuation of the Descendants franchise with Mal and King Ben’s wedding of course there has to be some drama so Hades is at play trying to throw a wrench into their plans.
“The animated special will feature a brand new song, and the original “Descendants” cast is set to reprise their roles including Dove Cameron as Mal, Sofia Carson as Evie, Booboo Stewart as Jay, Mitchell Hope as Ben, Sarah Jeffery as Audrey, Melanie Paxson as Fairy Godmother, China Anne McClain as Uma, Jedidiah Goodacre as Chad, Anna Cathcart as Dizzy, Dan Payne as Beast, Bobby Moynihan as Dude the Dog and Cheyenne Jackson as Hades.”
Finally the new show Disney’s Magic Bake-Off will debut following the Descendants: The Royal Wedding.
This “new one-hour competitive series for kids 6-14 combining the wonder of baking with the ingenuity of young pastry chefs as they create the most extraordinary cakes inspired by the magic of Disney.
Imagination rules and teamwork triumphs as three teams of two race against the clock to design a Disney-inspired cake, including classics such as “Star Wars,” “The Lion King,” “Toy Story,” “Descendants,” “Zombies,” and more! Co-hosts Dara Reneé and Issac Ryan Brown, along with Disneyland resort pastry chef Graciela Gomez, guide the kid bakers through fun challenges and unexpected twists all designed to elevate the contestants’ baking abilities, techniques and creativity to new culinary heights. Each episode will declare a winning team to be named Disney Baking Champion. The winning recipe will become a featured Tastemade video available on Disney Channel and Tastemade social media platforms.”
It looks like there will be a lot of new content for kids heading into the end of summer!
