The highlights are:

Saturday, April 22

(9:05 - 11:35 a.m. EDT) JUNGLE 2 JUNGLE - FREEFORM PREMIERE Manhattan broker Michael Cromwell (Tim Allen) is engaged to fiancée Charlotte (Lolita Davidovich) but needs a divorce from his estranged wife Patricia (JoBeth Williams) who's been living in the Amazon with a native tribe for years. Michael travels to the Amazon and discovers he has a teenage son Mimi-Siku (Sam Huntington), who begs to be taken to the city to fulfill a quest for his tribe. At first, things don't go so smoothly for the kid from the jungle, but soon the boy and his dad bond.

(11:35a.m. - 1:40 p.m. EDT) MATILDA This film adaptation of a Roald Dahl work tells the story of Matilda Wormwood (Mara Wilson), a gifted girl forced to put up with a crude, distant father (Danny DeVito) and mother (Rhea Perlman). Worse, Agatha Trunchbull (Pam Ferris), the evil principal at Matilda's school, is a terrifyingly strict bully. However, when Matilda realizes she has the power of telekinesis, she begins to defend her friends from Trunchbull's wrath and fight back against her unkind parents.

(1:40 - 3:40 p.m. EDT) GNOMEO AND JULIET In Stratford-Upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare, Miss Capulet and Mr. Montague feud over whose garden is the better. Garden gnomes that decorate each neighbor's flower beds continue the rivalry when the humans aren't looking, and gnomes from the Red Gardens don't get along with those of the Blue Gardens. Then Gnomeo (James McAvoy), a Blue, and Juliet (Emily Blunt), a Red, fall in love, leaving many obstacles to overcome. "Gnomeo and Juliet" repeats on Sunday, April 23, at 11:40 a.m. EDT.

(3:40 - 5:40 p.m. EDT) DISNEY'S POCAHONTAS Free-spirited Pocahontas (Irene Bedard) and her woodland pals, Meeko (John Kassir) and Flit (Frank Welker), are surprised when they discover the first English settlers on the shores of their village. With the guidance and wisdom of her beloved Grandmother Willow (Linda Hunt) and the friendship of the courageous Captain John Smith (Mel Gibson), Pocahontas must find a way to bridge the divide between the two vastly different cultures. Disney's "Pocahontas" repeats on Sunday, April 23, at 1:40 p.m. EDT.

(5:40 - 7:50 p.m. EDT) DISNEY'S BOLT The days of canine superstar Bolt (John Travolta) are filled with danger and intrigue ... until the cameras stop rolling. But Bolt doesn't know that he's on a TV show; he thinks his amazing powers are real. When Bolt is accidentally shipped from his Hollywood soundstage to the mean streets of New York, he begins his most amazing adventure: Armed only with his delusions and accompanied by a cat and a hamster, he sets out to find his beloved owner Penny (Miley Cyrus). Disney's "Bolt" repeats on Sunday, April 23, at 3:40 p.m. EDT.

(7:50 - 9:50 p.m. EDT) DISNEY·PIXAR'S TOY STORY Set in a world where toys have a life of their own, "Toy Story" takes moviegoers on a fantastic fun-filled journey, viewed mostly through the eyes of two rival toys: Woody (Tom Hanks), a pull-string talking cowboy, and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), a superhero space action figure. The comically mismatched duo eventually learn to put aside their differences when circumstances separate them from their owner, Andy (John Morris), and they find themselves on a hilarious adventure-filled mission where the only way they can survive is to form an uneasy alliance. Disney·Pixar's "Toy Story" repeats on Sunday, April 23, at 5:50 p.m. EDT.

(9:50 - 11:55 p.m. EDT) DISNEY·PIXAR'S TOY STORY 2 The toys are back in town and ready to play once again in this exciting sequel, picking up as Andy heads off to Cowboy Camp leaving his toys to their own devices. Things shift into high gear when an obsessive toy collector named Al McWhiggin (Wayne Knight), owner of Al's Toy Barn, kidnaps Woody (Tom Hanks). At Al's apartment, Woody discovers that he is a highly valued collectible from a 1950s TV show called "Woody's Roundup," and he meets the other prized toys from that show - Jessie the cowgirl (Joan Cusack), Bullseye the horse and Stinky Pete the Prospector (Kelsey Grammer). Back at the scene of the crime, Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and the gang from Andy's room - Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles), Slinky Dog (Jim Varney), Rex (Wallace Shawn) and Hamm (John Ratzenberger) - spring into action to rescue their pal from winding up as a museum piece. The toys get into one predicament after another in their daring race to get Woody home before Andy returns. Disney·Pixar's "Toy Story 2" repeats on Sunday, April 23, at 7:50 p.m. EDT.

(11:55 p.m. - 2:00 a.m. EDT) DISNEY'S MULAN Mulan is a brave young woman faced with the terrible reality that her ailing father - too old to be a soldier but too honorable not to be one - will be killed in battle. Driven by her love and devotion for her family, Mulan makes a decision that will change their lives forever. Disguising herself as a man, she secretly takes her father's place in the Imperial army that is being gathered to meet the threat of invasion by the villainous Hun leader, Shan-Yu (Miguel Ferrer). Accompanied by her feisty, fire-breathing "wanna-be" guardian dragon, Mushu (Eddie Murphy), Mulan trains to be a brave and disciplined warrior and ultimately learns some profound lessons about courage, honor and love. Disney's "Mulan" repeats on Sunday, April 23, at 9:55 p.m. EDT.
