Disney Fairy Tale Movie Marathon (aka Princess Movies) on ABC Family This Weekend
HIstorical Cinderella Edit by Camile Eusse something different - just for fun)
Need to catch up on your Disney (princess) fairy tales? There's a bunch showing on ABC Family this weekend: Saturday, March 21, 2015: The Princess and the Frog - 5pm ET/PT The Little Mermaid - 7pm ET/PT Sleeping Beauty - 8:45pm ET/PT Cinderella - 10:30pm ET/PT Sunday, March 22, 2015: Pocahontas - 12:15am ET/PT (yes, VERY early/late!) The Princess & the Frog - 3pm ET/PT The Little Mermaid - 5pm ET/PT Sleeping Beauty - 8:45pm ET/PT Cinderella - 8:30p ET/PT Pocahontas (again) - 10:15pm ET/PT (So we wouldn't expect Anna & Elsa - too soon - but where the heck are Snow White, Jasmine and Rapunzel - three princesses that had their status right from the beginning of the movie?) Here's the programming pitch:
"Beginning this Saturday, March 21, at 5 p.m. ET/PT, ABC Family will be presenting “Princess Funday.” Princesses of all ages are encouraged to don their tiaras, raise their goblets, and celebrate “girl power” with a princess-packed viewing schedule of animated Disney classics. "
For Saturday that's not a "Funday". That's a sleepover at best. Not sure who in programming plans on having their "princess" up past midnight to watch Pocahontas, (or starting to watch a movie after 10pm on a school-the-next-day night!) but... if you need to catch up on those movies (or want to take the opportunity to DVR them) this is a good opportunity.
And there's a new Disney "Imagicadamy" that's promoting family fun play ideas on the Cinderella theme that have nothing to do with watching - or buying - anything. The activities suggested are:
Find the Shoe - treasure hunt
Wait for Midnight Noon - clothes change dash
Scrub the Floor (unless it's already part of their chores!)
