When Star Wars Rebels came to a close at the end of its fourth season earlier this year, many were left wondering what our next animated adventure could be. Speculation was fueled after Lucasfilm job listings were posted for storyboard artists and directors (which could've also been for many projects), but now we have definitive word on what's coming next. Production has begun on STAR WARS RESISTANCE, "an exciting new animated adventure series about Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order." Set in the era prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the series will premiere this fall on Disney Channel in the U.S. and, thereafter, on Disney XD around the world.

After making their debut in one short sequence from 1984's The Muppets Take Manhattan, the Muppet Babies made the jump to television for a long-running animated series that ran until 1991. It's been nearly three decades since the original series came to the end of its run, and now it's time for a long-overdue reboot for a whole new generation. Disney's MUPPET BABIES launches as an all-new original series premiering FRIDAY, MARCH 23 with two back-to-back episodes on Disney Channel (10:00 a.m. EDT) and in the DisneyNOW app. Today, The Rock Father™ and Disney Junior  have teamed-up to present the EXCLUSIVE premiere of Muppet Babies: Show & Tell - a new short-form series that young audiences can enjoy starting March 2nd. In these shorts, kids can get to know the Muppet Babies and their environment, starting with a first-look at the playroom and backyard through the eyes of Kermit the Frog. How connected is the new series to the classic Muppet tales that that kids like me grew up with in the 70s and 80s? There's a definite connection... you might even say that there's a "Rainbow Connection." Check out Kermit's Show & Tell...

Production has begun on what will likely be a huge hit next summer - Disney’s Zombies, "a music- and dance-filled story about a groundbreaking semester at Seabrook High School." Now, what will be "groundbreaking" for "the pride and joy of Seabrook, a suburban town preoccupied with uniformity, traditions and pep rallies?" How about the arrival of transfer students from Zombietown, who "integrate into the school and a cheerleader and zombie football star, Addison and Zed, fall in love?" There's certainly a bit of a "Monster High" vibe being given off in the production announcement, with themes of coexistence and acceptance running right alongside the forthcoming Disney Junior series, Vampirina as well.

Disney's Puppy Dog Pals first hit the scene last month, quickly gaining young fans eager for more adventure with pug brothers Bingo and Rolly. As with most new shows that are fresh-out-of-the-gate, there's often the question of "where's the toys?," and with Puppy Dog Pals I can give you the answer: they're coming this Fall! Previewed at New York Toy Fair a few months back, my friends at Just Play have shared with The Rock Father™ a first-look at their Puppy Dog Pals Doghouse Playset! No doubt the pinnacle of their collection (more toys will be revealed soon),  I'm already anticipating this to be a hot item for the 2017 holiday season. After all, Just Play has a track record, with awesome kid-coveted toys from PJ Masks, Mickey and The Roadster Racers, The Lion Guard, Doc McStuffins and Sofia the First in their lineup.

Two years  ago, I had the unique honor of sitting in a theater in Burbank with Director/Choreographer Kenny Ortega to watch Disney's DESCENDANTS before its official premiere, and before it became a phenomenon. From the moment the kids first walked out singing "Rotten to the Core," I new Descendants would be huge, and now the crew is back! As announced earlier this week, Descendants 2 premieres FRIDAY, JULY 21 (8:00 p.m. ET/PT) on five networks – Disney Channel, ABC, Freeform, Disney XD and Lifetime! Check out the trailer below, along with the new music video, "Ways to Be Wicked!"
