Attention Disney fans! Disney Junior is almost here!
For those of you whose kids have been following the launch of the new Disney Junior, Monday the 14th cannot come soon enough. My four year old has been asking almost daily if it is the 14th, and just today asked me again to list the shows that will on the new Disney Junior. It’s finally time!
So what’s new? Disney Junior is replacing Playhouse Disney in the Disney Channel line-up beginning this Monday and includes old favorites as well as all new, original series.
New shows include:
– Mickey Mousekersize Short – These short segments between shows will focus on exercises to get kids up and moving.
– Babar and the Adventures of Badou – An all new series, this updated version of Babar includes King Babara’s grandson, Badou. My son in particular is excited about this show with updated, more advanced animation and fun stories.
– Tinga Tinga Tales – This new series is inspired by traditional animal folktales from Africa with animation inspired by the art of Tanzania.
– Special Agent Oso’s “Three Healthy Steps” – Another short-form series, each episode will focus on three new healthy steps for kids to exercise and eat right.
– Jake and the Never Land Pirates – The most anticipated of the new Disney Junior shows, Jake and the Never Land Pirates brings the fun of Disney pirates to the younger set who may not yet be old enough to enjoy the Pirates of the Caribbean series of films. It introduces new characters that kids can easily relate to – Jake, Izzy, and Cubby – while also including the villains every child loves to hate, Captain Hook and the accident-prone Smee.
My kids and I were fortunate enough to watch a preview of these series along, and the kids LOVED everything, especially Jake and the Never Land Pirates. I was equally as impressed, and not just because I think Jake looks a bit like Joe Jonas. The shows are fun, the animation fantastic, the story lines interesting enough to keep kids engaged and parents happy. We love our old Disney favorites, but Disney Junior is bringing a twist and a breath of fresh air to the channel that we know and love.
