Disney Channel - India’s #1 Television Channel for kids and their families will premiere Disney's Peter Pan --- a timeless tale of adventure that's filled with wonder, imagination and pixie dust on Saturday, February 25 at 11 am. One of Walt Disney’s favorite stories, this classic is a tale of fantastic adventures that await Wendy and her brothers when Peter Pan, the hero of their stories, whisks them away to the magical world of Never Land.
Experience their journey with Peter and his feisty friend Tinker Bell as they explore the island and Peter's secret hideout with the rambunctious Lost Boys and leap into high-flying battles with swashbuckling pirates and the infamous Captain Hook!
A fan favorite of multiple generations, Peter Pan, the little boy who never grows up and has the magical ability to fly, is all set to spread the pixie dust and magic this weekend on Disney Channel on February 25 at 11 am.
In addition, Disney Channel is all set to bring back the beloved characters from Walt Disney's 1967 classic animated film, "The Jungle Book" in a television series of their own - "Jungle Cubs". The animated series will make its debut on Monday, February 27 at 10.30 am on Disney Channel.
The series follows the outrageous adventures of six familiar-and-feisty-characters of "The Jungle Book" - Baloo the carefree bear, Bagheera the all-knowing panther, that "king of the swingers" Prince Louie, Shere Khan the sly tiger, Kaa the hypnotic snake, and that ever-so-particular pachyderm, Hathi - only instead of ruling the jungles of India, they're the youthful, ingenuous "Jungle Cubs".
"Jungle Cubs" will also feature the popular original songs from the movie and reprises "The Bare Necessities," the Academy Award®-nominated song from the 1967 motion picture, as the theme of the show. This heart-warming series pounces onto the screen, presenting the action-packed, comic escapades of the feisty cubs as they learn the laws of life in the Indian jungles only on Disney Channel on February 27 at 10.30 am.
