ABC FAMILY TO PRESENT THE NETWORK TELEVISION PREMIERES OF WALT DISNEY PICTURES' "G-FORCE" AND "A CHRISTMAS CAROL"

Package Also Includes the Network Television Premiere of "Beverly Hills Chihuahua," and Second Position Windows for "Bedtime Stories" and "Race to Witch Mountain"

Burbank, CA (April 9, 2009) � ABC Family has acquired a slate of theatricals including several network television premieres as part of an agreement with Disney-ABC Domestic Television. The network will air the network television premieres of the Walt Disney Pictures 3-D films "G-Force," from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, in theaters this summer, and "A Christmas Carol," starring Jim Carrey, to be released in theaters this November. The package also includes the network television premiere of "Beverly Hills Chihuahua," and second position windows for the studio's two recent films, "Race to Witch Mountain" and "Bedtime Stories."

"Beverly Hills Chihuahua" is tentatively scheduled to make its network television premiere on ABC Family in 2010, "G-Force" in 2011 and "A Christmas Carol" in 2012. "Bedtime Stories" and "Race to Witch Mountain" will both tentatively mark their runs on the network in 2012.

"G-Force"

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer brings his first 3-D film to the big screen with "G-Force," a comedy adventure about the latest evolution of a covert government program to train animals to work in espionage. Armed with the latest high-tech spy equipment, these highly trained guinea pigs discover that the fate of the world is in their paws. Tapped for the G-Force are guinea pigs Darwin (voice of SAM ROCKWELL), the squad leader determined to succeed at all costs; Blaster (voice of TRACY MORGAN), an outrageous weapons expert with tons of attitude and a love for all things extreme; and Juarez (voice of PENELOPE CRUZ), a sexy martial arts pro; plus the literal fly-on-the-wall reconnaissance expert, Mooch, and a star-nosed mole, Speckles (voice of NICOLAS CAGE), the computer and information specialist. Directed by Academy Award�-winning visual effects master Hoyt Yeatman, "G-Force" takes audiences on a high-octane thrill ride, proving once and for all that size really doesn't matter.

"A Christmas Carol"

Disney's "A Christmas Carol," a multi-sensory thrill ride re-envisioned by Academy Award�-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, captures the fantastical essence of the classic Dickens tale in a groundbreaking 3-D motion picture event. Ebenezer Scrooge (JIM CARREY) begins the Christmas holiday with his usual miserly contempt, barking at his faithful clerk (GARY OLDMAN) and his cheery nephew (COLIN FIRTH). But when the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come take him on an eye-opening journey revealing truths Old Scrooge is reluctant to face, he must open his heart to undo years of ill will before it's too late.

"Beverly Hills Chihuahua"

Chloe (voice of DREW BARRYMORE), a diamond-clad, bootie wearing Beverly Hills Chihuahua, enjoys her luxurious lifestyle so much, she hardly notices Papi (voice of GEORGE LOPEZ), a hilarious Chihuahua who happens to be crazy for Chloe. But when the most pampered pooch gets lost in Mexico with only a street-wise German Shepherd (voice of ANDY GARCIA) to help her find her way home, Papi heads south of the border � joining forces with a motley crew -- three dogs (voices of PL�CIDO DOMINGO, LUIS GUZMAN and EDDIE "PIOLIN" SOTELO), two humans (PIPER PERABO, MANOLO CARDONA), a sly rat (voice of CHEECH MARIN) and a nervous iguana (voice of PAUL RODRIGUEZ) � to rescue his true love.

"Race to Witch Mountain"

For years, stories have circulated about a secret place in the middle of the Nevada desert, known for unexplained phenomena and strange sightings. It's called Witch Mountain, and when a Las Vegas cab driver (DWAYNE JOHNSON) finds two teens with supernatural powers in his cab, he suddenly finds himself in the middle of an adventure he can't explain. They work together to discover that the only chance to save the world lies in unraveling the secrets of Witch Mountain, and the race begins. "Race to Witch Mountain" is a fun and thrilling adventure featuring incredible special effects.

"Bedtime Stories"

"Bedtime Stories" is an adventure comedy starring ADAM SANDLER as Skeeter Bronson, a hotel handyman whose life is changed forever when the bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to mysteriously come true. When he tries to help his family by telling one outlandish tale after another, it's the kids' unexpected contributions that turn all of their lives upside down. From Director Adam Shankman ("Hairspray," "The Wedding Planner"), "Bedtime Stories" features an all-star cast, including ADAM SANDLER, KERI RUSSELL, GUY PEARCE, RUSSELL BRAND, RICHARD GRIFFITHS, JONATHAN PRYCE and COURTENEY COX.
