Inspired by the weekly "Wonderful World of Disney" family movies... A new agreement has been made between the Hallmark Channel and Walden Media to bring to their network New Family Movies on Friday Nights!
Walden Media is well-known for creating it’s own library of Family Films, including "The Chronicles of Narnia series", "Holes", "Bridge to Terabithia", "Nim’s Island", "Charlotte’s Web", "Amazing Grace", "Journey to the Center Of The Earth", and the recent hit "Parental Guidance".
This year the “Walden Family Theater” will be giving us six new films on the Hallmark Channel and Walmart will sell DVDs of the new movies the Tuesday after they premiere. In addition to these new movies, they will also showcase “a variety of beloved original movies from Hallmark Channel’s vast library”.
The sponsors of this event will be Walmart and P&G.... who you may remember also used to endorse the Family Movie Night films that aired on NBC and FOX. Movies like: “Secrets of the Mountain”, “Change of Plans”, “Field of Vision”, “Truth be Told”, etc...
The first premiere movie for the “Walden Family Theater”, on March 15, will be “Return to Nim's Island”, produced by Walden Media & ARC Entertainment, and starring Bindi Irwin (daughter of the late Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter), Matthew Lillard, Toby Wallace, and Nathan Derrick.
Expect the next new movie in May... “Space Warriors”, starring Dermot Mulroney, Mira Sorvino, and Josh Lucas.
The Hallmark Channel has been quite dependable in bringing to it’s viewers good family entertainment and it looks like this agreement with Walden Media will be sure to give us more of the same! We look forward to watching Friday Family Movie Nights!
