ABC Revives “Wonderful World of Disney” Movie Series

ABC is bringing back its Wonderful World of Disney banner for a series of theatrical movies that will air on the network.

The four films will run on Wednesday nights for four weeks beginning May 20.

Disney Animation’s “Moana” will lead off the series on May 20.

Here’s the full lineup:

  • May 20 – Moana
  • May 27 – Thor: The Dark world
  • June 3 – Up
  • June 10 – Big Hero 6

The movies will help bridge the gap between the end of the September-to-May season and the summer lineup.

Movie nights were long a staple of broadcast schedules, but were gradually eliminated in the 1990s and 2000s as premium cable became the primary outlet for TV premieres of theatrical films.
