Disney Junior, the new multiplatform destination for kids age 2-7, will present “Imagination Movers in Concert,” a 45-minute primetime special featuring more than a dozen songs from the Emmy Award-winning “Imagination Movers” television series. Premiering during Mardi Gras week, SUNDAY, MARCH 6 (6:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel, the concert was filmed before a sold-out crowd at the Lakefront Arena in the Movers’ hometown of New Orleans. The special includes appearances by series guest stars Joey Fatone (*NSYNC) and Duff Goldman (Food Network’s “Ace of Cakes”), along with Nina and Warehouse Mouse.
On Monday, February 21, DisneyJunior.com will launch an “Imagination Movers in Concert” supersite (www.DisneyJunior.com/Movers) featuring the new “Join the Band” interactive game, where parents can help their child upload a photo to create their own Mini Mover and play along as kids help the Movers learn their big dance moves in time for the concert. The site will also feature printable personalized Imagination Mover name tags and a dedicated section for parents and caregivers with Mover-inspired recipes, crafts and party planning tips and ideas.
The popular Imagination Movers are currently on a Disney Junior 50-city national concert tour with stops including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and Washington, DC. For details on the tour dates and venues visit www.imaginationmovers.com.
