DISNEY CHANNEL MARKS ITS 100TH DISNEY CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WITH A MULTI-PLATFORM PROGRAMMING EVENT

BEGINNING FRIDAY, MAY 27

The 100th Disney Channel Original Movie (DCOM) premieres this summer, a milestone in the franchise that has entertained kids and families for over 18 years, set all-time cable TV ratings records, helped define a generation and launched some of today’s biggest stars. Ushering in the 100th movie, a re-imagined tale of the 1980s film “Adventures in Babysitting” starring today’s popular actresses and recording artists Sabrina Carpenter (“Girl Meets World”) and Sofia Carson (“Descendants”), is a nostalgic programming event featuring every DCOM ever made. The “100th DCOM Celebration” begins FRIDAY, MAY 27 with a four day marathon of the 51 most popular DCOMs followed by encore presentations of these and every other DCOM ever made through June. The movies will be seen on Disney Channel, the Disney Channel app and VOD through summer.

The programming event is sponsored by Great Wolf Lodge and Shopkins.

All 100 DCOMs will be available for sale throughout the summer on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video and Google Play.

From the first movie, “Under Wraps,” to 2007’s record-breaking “High School Musical 2” and last year’s smash global hit Disney’s “Descendants,” the DCOM franchise reflects values of optimism, self-expression, believing in yourself, and celebrating family and friendship.

In the U.S., across all basic cable, DCOMs have delivered the #1 cable TV movie for 14 consecutive years in Tweens 9-14 (2002-15) and hold the record of six of the Top 7 original cable movies ever (“High School Musical 2,” “Teen Beach Movie,” “Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie,” “Descendants,” “Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension” and “Camp Rock”).
