Summer heat can be beat. Join Disney Channel Canada every weekend beginning Saturday, June 30 for a cool collection of hit new series.

Big City Greens is a comedy adventure series about Cricket Green, a mischievous and optimistic country boy who moves to the big city with his family.

Big Hero 6 The Series, based on the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Academy Award®-winning feature film, continues the adventures and friendship of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro, his compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax and their friends Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go and Fred as they form the legendary superhero team Big Hero 6 and embark on high-tech adventures as they protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains. Then, everyone’s favourite mischief-making triplets Huey, Dewey and Louie, fly into the weekend morning lineup with new episodes of the animated comedy-adventure series, DuckTales at 9:30 a.m. ET/PT.
Don’t miss the new Disney Channel Original Movie, Freaky Friday, premiering Friday, August 10. Actresses Heidi Blickenstaff (The Little Mermaid and Something Rotten! on Broadway and the stage production of Freaky Friday) and Cozi Zuehlsdorff (Dolphin Tale, Liv and Maddie) star in an update of the American classic Freaky Friday, a Disney Channel musical comedy. This Disney Channel Original Movie is based on Disney Theatrical Productions’ stage adaptation of the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and Disney’s popular feature films of the same name.
