- ABC is bringing back 'The Wonderful World of Disney' movie series for four weeks.
ABC is reviving The Wonderful World of Disney movie series featuring theatrical movies on the network.
Starting on May 20, four films will run for four weeks starting with Disney Animation’s Moana. The films that follow will be Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World on May 27, Pixar’s Up on June 3, and Disney Animation’s Big Hero 6 on June 10.
Part of the reason The Wonderful World of Disney has returned is to bridge the gap between the end of the September-to-May season and the summer lineup. As the NBA season has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ABC is filling in the time slots with what they can.
The four movies will play before the final season of Agents of SHIELD, which premieres on May 27.
The Wonderful World of Disney is a nostalgic staple for many Disney fans. Although dedicated movie nights have been removed from networks as premium cable premiered theatrical films, ABC is taking a chance by bringing them back.
