Disney Junior will make its way to Canada as Astral’s Playhouse Disney re-brands its English and French-language networks as Disney Junior in May 2011. Just as it will in the US, Canada’s Disney Junior will expand its educational efforts to focus learning on social values, the environment and healthy living choices. The multiplex channel will launch with several new preschool series including Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Disney Poetry Shorts and Special Agent Oso: Three Healthy Steps. Disney Junior will also feature new episodes of existing series such as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Special Agent Oso, Jungle Junction and Imagination Movers, as well as original Canadian series Franny’s Feet, The Secret World of Benjamin Bear and new episodes of Stella and Sam.
Canada’s The Alliance for Children and Television unveils its name change to Youth Media Alliance (YMA) during its annual Media-Jeunes conference currently being held in Montreal. The reason for the name change for the 35-year-old association is to better reflect the YMA’s mission and the various screen-based content available to kids and teens across multiple platforms.
Denis Leary is in discussions to join Columbia‘s new Spider-Man movie, per THR. Leary would take on the role of police captain George Stacy, father of Gwen Stacy who will be played by Emma Stone in the Spidey movie reboot.

The Gruffalo, a mixed model/CGI animated half-hour special, will make its US premiere Thursday, December 9, at 7p on ABC Family, as part of the network’s annual 25 Days of Christmas on air event. Produced by Magic Light Pictures and animated at Germany’s Studio Soi, The Gruffalo is based on the kid’s picture book of the same name by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. The film’s voice cast features Robbie Coltrane, Helena Bonham Carter, Rob Brydon, James Corden, John Hurt and Tom Wilkinson. Directed by Jakob Schuh and Max Lang, The Gruffalo was produced by Michael Rose (Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run) and Martin Pope (The Heart of Me, Lawless Heart) through Magic Light Pictures. The special made its UK premiere on BBC1 on Christmas Day 2009.
