The Disney Channel Games - Netflix

Posted on Thu 13 June 2019 in netflix

Over 50 Disney Channel stars from around the globe convened at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida for The Disney Channel Games, featuring comedic relay races, grand scale obstacle courses and all-out fun challenges, to be presented in five special half-hour telecasts each week. Hosted by funny-man Brian Stepanek ("The Suite Life of Zack & Cody"), the games are comedic, colorful and larger than life but the competition is real and the young competitors are determined to win the prize -- the Disney Channel Games Cup. The special telecasts are highlighted by a post-Games concert featuring performances by Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, The Cheetah Girls, Demi Lovato and Jordan Pruitt. The specials will be presented on 27 Disney Channels worldwide with local Disney Channel stars hosting their country's telecasts. The event benefits four children's charities: Make-A-Wish Foundation, Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation, UNICEF and Boys & Girls Club of America.
