School is out and the fun is in as DStv offers Disney Channel in an open window this winter break

87

DStv viewers are in for a treat this school holiday, as Disney Channel (DStv, Channel 303) will be opening to DStv Family and Access customers from Saturday, 15 June – Sunday, 7 July. To celebrate, Disney Channel has collected super-sized doses of fun, laughter and adventure, including returning films and seasons of fan favourites as well as brand new live-action and animation series.

Special holiday programming that customers will be able to dive into, includes a mix of new series from Pretty Freekin’ Scary S1 to Chip ‘n Dale: Park Life S2 to old friends on Bunk’d: Against the Ropes S7 and more in-between. A very special Saturday Movie Night block will be launched at 19:30 (VAT) and kicks off on 15 June with the iconic Disney Channel Original Movie (DCOM) High School Musical – following the gifted students at East High, the film broke barriers and stars Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale.

Other movies include High School Musical 2 on 22 June; brand-new animated movie Night at The Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again on 29 June and on 6 July Lego Marvel Avengers: Code Red, all at 19:30 CAT. 

Local is indeed lekker as we welcome back Wandi & Kabz on Friday, 28 June at 16:50 CAT for Season 2. This live-action meets animation comedy series featuring Ogadinma Ngobili (14) as Wandi and Marang Neo (10) as Kabz is a laugh-a-minute. These besties go on grand adventures together, meeting popular African historical figures, thanks to Wandi’s special antique, time-travelling pocket watch. After a quick and playful interaction, the historical figures whisk Wandi and Kabz off to the past for a light-hearted glimpse into significant scenes from their lives.

Animated offerings this month include the Season 4 premiere of Big City Greens on 22 June at 12:20 CAT. Bill Green and his two children Cricket and Tilly move in with his mother Alice (Gramma), who lives on a small farm in the middle of a city known as “Big City”. In Season 4, the Greens celebrate Halloween and Bill is disappointed by the tiny pumpkins he grew, so Tilly steals an alien compound to grow the pumpkins and make her papa happy. You can also enjoy a double bill of Chip ‘n Dale: Park Life followed by Monsters at Work on Monday– Friday, from 17 June at 06:50 CAT.  Monsters at Work is the sequel series to the Monsters Inc franchise and follows the journey an eager young monster Tylor Tuskmon.

There’s also plenty of high adventure highlights with everyone’s favourite ladybug Marinette in Miraculous Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir. Enjoy all three Ladybug movies on Saturday mornings at 10;40 CAT starting with Miraculous World: New York United Heroes on 15 June, followed by Miraculous World: Shanghai, The Legend of Ladydragon on 22 June and Miraculous World Paris: Tales of Shadybug and Claw Noir on 29 June.
