This Fall, Disney Channel will premiere STAR WARS: REBELS, an all-new animated series that will run on Disney XD following it's premiere event. As part of Star Wars Day 2014, the first full trailer for the new series has arrived, and I've got it for you below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER. STAR WARS: REBELS takes place in the years between 2005's STAR WARS: EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH and 1977's STAR WARS: Episode IV - A NEW HOPE.
She's the daughter of certified "Rock Father" (OZZY), a fashion designer, red carpet correspondent and singer. Now, KELLY OSBOURNE can add "voice-over actor" to her resume, as she's joined the cast of Disney's THE 7D as novice witch, Hildy Gloom.
A new comedic take on The Seven Dwarfs, THE 7D will roll out this summer across three television platforms: Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD.
When I first caught an episode or two of MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE some years back, I wasn't really into it. There was something that struck me as a bit hollow, and the animation style just didn't appeal to me. Fortunately, by the time my girls started to show interest in Mickey and the gang, the show had improved drastically in both animation and storytelling, and on recent home video releases (like December's SUPER ADVENTURE!), Mickey Mouse Clubhouse has actually tapped into a lot of what I loved about THE MICKEY MOUSE CLUB and THE NEW MICKEY MOUSE CLUB (both of which I'd seen in re-runs as a kid), speaking directly to young audiences and teaching valuable lessons and social skills through story and song. Out this week, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: MINNIE-RELLA keeps that vibe going, introducing families to a new tale based on the classic CINDERELLA story.
Ok, so the headline was misleading. Ron Swanson will not be appearing on the upcoming second season of Disney Junior's massive hit, SOFIA THE FIRST... but his voice (that of actor Nick Offerman) will appear as that of a "well-connected fox who reigns over Enchancia's woodland creatures." But for kids like mine, appearances by some of the most famous DISNEY PRINCESSES will be sure to delight. SOFIA THE FIRST: Season Two debuts FRIDAY, MARCH 7 (9:30 a.m. ET/PT) on Disney Channel. A special episode featuring Snow White will premiere FRIDAY, APRIL 4 on Disney Channel (9:00 a.m. ET/PT) and Disney Junior (6:00 p.m. ET/PT). Check out more details on what (and who) to expect below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER.
SOFIA THE FIRST has been a staple here at Rock Father HQ since it started airing on Disney Junior earlier this year. That said, my girls will be pretty excited to learn that the adventure is going beyond Enchanica, and onto the seas when SOFIA THE FIRST: THE FLOATING PALACE arrives next month. Premiering SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24 (7:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the Disney Channel and THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28 (7:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Junior, Sofia's first primetime special features an appearance from a true Disney legend - Princess Ariel, THE LITTLE MERMAID herself.
