Later this year, SELMA Director Ava DuVernay will be back behind the camera to direct Disney's big-screen adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's 1963 science fiction novel, A WRINKLE IN TIME, working from a script by FROZEN's Jennifer Lee. After the casting of Oprah Winfrey in the role of Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon in the role of Mrs. Whatsit and Mindy Kaling in the role of Mrs. Who, one big question loomed as to who would play the role of "Meg," the young hero at the center of the tale? Today it was revealed to be Storm Reid.
This Friday, the second season of CREATIVE GALAXY comes to Amazon Prime, welcoming young viewers to join adorable alien Arty (Meesha Contreras), and his sidekick Epiphany (Kira Gelineau), as they travel around the galaxy to solve problems using various forms of art. Each vibrant and engaging episode highlights a unique creative medium – painting, music, sculpting, cooking and more – to showcase how art can be found in all different places and in many forms. The interactive stories and unique live-action craft segments designed to help adult viewers recreate the art projects featured in each episode with their kids, inspire children to “go be amazing!” and become idea makers and creative thinkers.

With STAR WARS REBELS Season 3 set to premiere on Saturday, September 24 (8:30 p.m. ET) on Disney XD, it's time for a refresher on what happened in Season 2 (just-released on Blu-ray and DVD). My friends at Disney put together a 2.5 minute look at the second season, essential viewing - especially for those not already well-versed in the ways of The Force. I've been saying since the beginning that STAR WARS REBELS is a must-watch, and with the events of the series having definitive connections to both the upcoming ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS Story and the in-progress new trilogy that kicked off with THE FORCE AWAKENS, there's much adventure to be had - a series for lifelong STAR WARS fans and new viewers alike!
