The schedule is as follows:

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

(3:00PM -5:00PM ET/PT) MULAN Mulan (Ming-Na Wen) 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. "Mulan" repeats on Sunday, June 28th at 1:00PM ET/PT.

(5:00PM -7:00PM ET/PT) TARZAN This Academy Award(R)-winning adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs's story begins deep within the jungle when baby Tarzan (Tony Goldwyn) is adopted by a family of gorillas. Even though he is shunned as a "hairless wonder" by their leader, Tarzan is accepted by the gorillas and raised as one of their own. Together with his wisecracking ape buddy, Terk (Rosie O'Donnell), and neurotic elephant pal, Tantor (Wayne Knight), Tarzan learns how to swing through the trees and survive in the animal kingdom. His two worlds collide with the arrival of humans, forcing Tarzan to choose between a "civilized" life with the beautiful Jane (Minnie Driver) and the life he knows and loves with his gorilla family. "Tarzan" repeats on Sunday, June 28th at 3:00PM ET/PT.

(7:00PM-9:00PM ET/PT) KING FU PANDA In this ABC Family premiere of the DreamWorks Animation film, Po (Jack Black) is a noodle-slurping dreamer who must embrace his true self - fuzzy flaws and all - in order to become the Dragon Warrior. "Kung Fu Panda" is full of high-kicking humor and features an all-star cast, including the voice talents of Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Ian McShane, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen and Lucy Liu. "Kung Fu Panda" repeats on Sunday, June 28th at 5:00PM ET/PT

(9:00PM-11:00PM ET/PT) DESPICABLE ME In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences and flowering rose bushes sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden deep beneath this home is a vast secret hideout belonging to Gru (Steve Carrell), a dastardly villain who, along with the help of his many little minions, is planning the biggest heist in the history of the world: he's going to steal the moon! But his plans are foiled the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. This smash hit boasts a stellar all-star vocal cast that includes Julie Andrews, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Danny McBride, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, Mindy Kaling and more. "Despicable Me" repeats on Sunday, June 28th at 7:00PM ET/PT.

(11:00PM - 1:00AM ET/PT) DR. SEUSS' HORTON HEARS A WHO! In this movie based on the classic children's tale, "Dr. Seuss' "Horton Hears A Who!" centers on Horton (Jim Carrey), a friendly elephant who one day hears a cry for help coming from a small speck of dust. Upon closer investigation, he discovers an entire race of microscopic 'Whos' living atop it. Horton befriends the Whos' and protects their tiny world, but his jungle neighbors' worry Horton has gone crazy and believes in things that don't exist. Assuming that nothing so small could possibly be alive, Horton's friends conspire to destroy the speck of dust in order to rouse him from his delusions, but he is determined to save the tiny particle. The all-star cast also includes Steve Carell, Carol Burnet, Will Arnett, Seth Rogen, Isla Fisher, Jonah Hill and Amy Poehler.
