This special episode will air on Friday, July 31 and guest-stars legendary actor Malcolm McDowell (CLOCKWORK ORANGE, ENTOURAGE) as Lord Fathom and Jim Rash (COMMUNITY) as his sidekick, Sinker. (Bonus Fact: I once worked an event with McDowell in Las Vegas with the band Slipknot. Somewhere, photos exist!)
All of the new episodes will also be available each weekday on WATCH Disney Junior, which will launch a SOARING OVER SUMMER ARCADE, featuring several retro arcade-style games with voxel versions of Sofia, Doc, Miles, Jake and Henry.
