Disney is about to launch its own animated movie franchise that will be based on one of its most beloved characters, the Lion King.
Disney XD, the cable channel Disney-owned video-on-demand service, has announced that The Lion Kingdom will debut on the network this fall.
It will premiere on April 23.
This is a bold move from Disney and the network, which has never been one for major films.
The Lion, the titular character in the LionKing saga, is a white lion who travels the world to help young boys with their arts and crafts.
Disney will be making a series of original short films for the channel, which have already been shown in its original Disney Channel version.
The series will include original animation, voice-overs, and behind-the-scenes clips.
The original animation is already in motion.
In May 2017, Disney announced a partnership with the Cartoon Network to make the original series available for download on the channel.
Disney has also made it available on Netflix, and will soon be making it available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
The Disney XD deal also includes a new short series from Pixar titled Finding Nemo, which will debut this fall and will follow the adventures of a young orphan named Nemo as he finds himself on a search for the sea floor and the mythical treasure that will allow him to save his species.
The Disney Channel will also be bringing back the iconic classic animated classic Toy Story 3, which was shown on the cartoon channel in 1989.
It was originally made available on DVD and Blu-ray in 2015, and Disney has released two movies on DVD, and one on Blu-Ray.
The three shorts in the new series are the most popular Toy Story movies, with Toy Story 4 being the highest-grossing of all.
Disney is releasing the short films through Disney XD as part of a pilot program that will debut in 2017.

In addition to Toy Story, the channel also plans to launch a series on the legendary Disney princesses Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel.
The animated series is expected to premiere in 2019.
The shorts will be released through Disney channels on the first Monday of the month and will be available on Disney channels as well as other Disney-branded platforms.
Disney has also confirmed that it will be bringing the Disney Channel’s live streaming service, Disney XD Live, to Apple TV this fall with a new series of Disney channels that will provide content that will compete with Hulu and Netflix, as well.
Disney’s Live is currently available on the Apple TV App, Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV Stick, and Amazon Fire TV Stick.
The first live video streaming video for the service will be on June 30, 2018.
