List of Disney television films

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Beginning in the 1950s, The Walt Disney Company began producing made-for-television films in their long-running anthology series Disneyland (later to be popularly known as The Wonderful World of Color and The Wonderful World of Disney). Many of Disney's TV movies were miniseries that aired in installments over several weeks, and a few (such as Davy Crockett and The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh) were later re-edited and released theatrically. During the 1980s, in addition to films made for their weekly TV series, Disney began making original films for their television network, The Disney Channel. After the acquisition of ABC in the 1990s, Disney began co-producing uncharacteristic films (Stephen King's Storm of the Century, Home Alone 4) as well as TV reunion movies (The Facts of Life Reunion, The Growing Pains Movie) and a few in conjunction with Hallmark Entertainment (Dinotopia, Mr. St. Nick, Snow White: The Fairest of Them All).
