The world’s most famous mouse returns to television on June 28th. Mickey Mouse Shorts (Fridays, 8:30/7:30C) will be a series of three original shorts that will find Mickey and his friends – Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto – on all new adventures around the globe. Only Mickey could turn buying a hot dog in New York City into an adventure! In any given week, The Mouse could wind up in Santa Monica, Paris or Tokyo (Mickey and gang on a bullet train?) – not to mention Beijing, Venice or the Swiss Alps!

Disney Channel has ordered Girl Meets World – Boy Meets World’s Cory and Topanga have a daughter – to series. Set in New York City, the new comedy series will tell the kind of heartfelt stories that "Boy Meets World" is renowned for — only this time from a tween girl’s perspective — as the curious and bright 7th grader, Riley, and her quick-witted friend Maya embark on an unforgettable middle school experience.

Production has begun on the new animated Star Wars series, Star Wars Rebels, for Disney’s global XD channels. The production is lead by writer/producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes, Mr. & Mrs. Smith), who is an executive producer of the series and will write the series premiere. He will be joined by the force (sorry…) behind Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Dave Filoni, who will be an executive producer. Rounding out the executive producers is Greg Weisman (Young Justice, The Spectacular Spider-Man and Gargoyles).
The series will have a one-hour event premiere on Disney Channel in fall 2014 then proceed as a half-hour series on Disney XD, globally. There is no word on when/if we will see the remaining episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Phineas and Ferb – one of Disney’s most popular animated shows with tweens – will be crossing over with some of Marvel’s most popular superheroes next summer on The Disney Channel.
In Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, Spider-Man and three of The Avengers (Iron Man, Thor and The Incredible Hulk) are dragged into the Phines and Ferb universe – minus their powers! Which is problematic because some of their greatest villains – Red Skull, Whiplash, Venom and M.O.D.O.K – have also come along for the ride.
