What a nice way to start of Spring with all new Miles from Tomorrowland episodes. These new episodes are part of Disney Junior’s “Triple Play Friday” programming event which features 3 back-to-back episodes of popular Disney Junior series airing each Friday throughout the month of March.
Below is the information for the new episodes, along with 2 clips from “Happy Captain’s Day”:
“Happy Captain’s Day / Planet of the Plants” premieres at 9:00 AM ET/PT on Disney Channel
In an effort to give Captain Phoebe a wonderful Captain’s Day, Miles, Loretta and Leo embark on a nearly impossible space-task. Then, during a mission to Antheia, a planet completely covered with orange plants, the Callistos discover something stranger than the plants.
“Ride of the Quarkons / Downsized” premieres at 9:25 AM ET/PT on Disney Channel
The Callistos encounter a pod of Quarkons blocking the Photon Superhighway. Then, when the Callisto family is accidently shrunken down by the Tomorrowland Mail-alien, the tiny family must work together to help Merc save an off-course starship.
“To the Goldilocks Zone / Hiccup in the Plan” premieres at 9:50 AM ET/PT on Disney Channel
Miles helps scout out the perfect planet for his Earth friend Haruna to live on. Then, the Callistos must figure out how to escape when a giant Sporjot alien swallows the Stellosphere.
Last week I had the opportunity to have a quick phone interview with the creator of the new Disney Junior series, “Miles from Tomorrowland.” I spoke with Sascha Paladino, Series Creator and Executive Producer, “Miles from Tomorrowland.” We had a one on one session where I got to ask him questions about the brand new series. You can catch an episode right now on the Watch Disney Junior App and the series will debut on Disney Channel this Friday at Friday, February 6 at 9:00 a.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel. On that day you can see these four episodes.
“Runaway Shuttle/Surfin’ the Whirlpool” (9:00 a.m. ET/PT) – Miles and Merc rescue a trapped pilot before his ship crashes into Jupiter’s moon Io. Then, Miles and Leo must work together to escape the Zuma Whirlpool waves on a father/son surf trip.
“Ocean in Motion/Explorer Exchange” (9:30 a.m. ET/PT) – The Callisto family is visited by alien Blodger Blopp as part of the Cosmic Explorers exchange program. Then, Miles and his family must figure out why a probe on a dry planet has sustained water damage.
“Game On/How I Saved my Summer Vacation” (10:00 a.m. ET/PT) – Miles’ skill at the game of Galaxias becomes crucial when the Callistos are captured by an alien queen. Then, while vacationing on the dried-out planet Alarbus, Miles and Loretta uncover an ancient secret.
“Journey to the Frozen Planet/Attack of the Flickorax” (10:30 a.m. ET/PT) – During a mission on an ice-covered planet, Miles must save Loretta as she is swept down a river towards a waterfall. Then, when lights go out on the planet Calpurnia, Miles and Loretta must protect their ship from light-eating Flickorax aliens.
I’ve seen two full episodes so far. I saw the debut episode of “Runaway Shuttle/Surfin’ the Whirlpool” and “Journey to the Frozen Planet/Attack of the Flickorax”. Both were very entertaining. I enjoyed very much how the parents on the show were represented. They are not buffoons and the dad is not a bumbling idiot like most dads are portrayed. The family unit as a whole is not only a family but a competent crew. Mom, Phoebe, is the captain. Dad, Leo, is the pilot and chief mechanic. Daughter, Loretta, is a genius with technology. And Son, Miles is the adventurous spirit on the team. Miles is the wildcard, he doesn’t do things according to the instructions. He figures things out and does them his own way. He also has his best friend, Merc, the robot ostrich with him all the time. The show is bright and colorful and has a great excitement for Space and Space exploration.
