First Bluey Special to Bow in April


Disney Branded Television, BBC Studios Kids & Family and ABC Australia have slated an extended-length Bluey special to debut on April 14.

“The Sign” will be Bluey’s longest-ever episode at 28 minutes, penned by series creator and writer Joe Brumm, directed by Richard Jeffery and produced by Ludo Studio.

A new standard-length episode, “Ghostbasket,” is also set to premiere on April 7.

Both episodes will air first via ABC Kids in Australia and then roll out globally the same day across Disney+, Disney Junior and Disney Channel in all other available regions (with the exception of China and New Zealand).

Jointly commissioned by ABC Children’s and BBC Studios Kids & Family, Bluey is created and written by Joe Brumm and produced by Ludo Studio in association with Screen Queensland and Screen Australia. The series streams to the U.S. and global audiences (outside of Australia, New Zealand and China) across Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney+ through a global broadcasting deal between BBC Studios Kids & Family and Disney Branded Television.
