Disney Junior Transmits First Kids’ TV Debut in Space


Ahead of its linear premiere, an episode from the Mission Force One chapter of Disney Junior’s animated STEM series Miles from Tomorrowland was transmitted this week to astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS).

“The Space Station Situation” features an exact replica of the ISS. The episode sees young adventurer Miles and his friends travel back in time to prevent the space station from getting stuck in the future. It includes the voices of such NASA astronauts as Scott Kelly, Jeanette Epps and Yvonne Cagle.

“The Space Station Situation” was also shown during a private screening event at the official visitor center for the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston. The episode is slated for linear broadcast on Disney Junior at 5:30 p.m. on May 7.
