Mark your calendars Mayne Mafia, because this September, Freeform will be celebrating “30 Days of Disney” by airing beloved movies from Disney, Marvel, and Pixar! Tune in as we venture to far-off places and discover daring sword fights, magic spells, a prince in disguise… you get the idea. Each week will be themed to highlight the best of Disney villains, singalongs, pirates, and sheroes—and each weekend will be jam-packed with more classic Disney films!
Freeform will also give viewers an exciting behind-the-scenes look at the new lands at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California with a two-hour special, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge—Adventure Awaits, premiering Sunday, September 29, at 8 p.m. ET. Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, who has also been hosting nights during the Candelight Processional over the past few years, the immersive and exclusive television event will invite audiences to explore the epic new lands and learn more about how this new planet of Batuu came to life.
We think that this will be an awesome program and we cannot wait to see the construction of the lands that we have explored as completed. With celebrity guests including Kaley Cuoco, Keegan-Michael Key, Jay Leno, Sarah Hyland, Miles Brown, and more, Walt Disney Imagineers and Disney cast members will share how they brought Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to life with fascinating insider details.
The special will follow Harris as he meets up with Key for some laughs in Oga’s Cantina and takes a tour of Batuu; Hyland will learn about the tensions between the First Order and the Resistance and create her own droid at the Droid Depot; Leno will explore Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, inside and out, and Cuoco will take a special peek inside the highly anticipated and out-of-this-world attraction Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening December 5, 2019, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and January 17, 2020, at Disneyland park. Yes, friends, we will definitely be there on December 5th when Rise of the Resistance opens!!
“30 Days of Disney” will also feature the Freeform premieres of Iron Man, Disney’s Pete’s Dragon, Newsies: The Broadway Musical, and Tomorrowland, as well as a special airing of the Disney Channel original movie Descendants 3. Throughout the month, Freeform will present a special Disneyland photo series with influencers celebrating Disney bounding culture.
