Disney Channel Russia!

The Walt Disney Company is planning on launching a version of the Disney Channel in Russia this year. The company would also produce upwards of three theatrical movies a year for the local market.

The General Director of Disney CIS, Marina Zhigalova-Ozkan, said, “We are planning to follow upon the success of our first movie for the Russian market, ‘The Book of Masters,’ further developing local film production. We would like to try different genres, like fantasy, action and films for teenagers, but all our films will definitely be targeted toward family audiences.”

“Now we’re developing Jetix TV channel and have filed documents for Disney Channel registration on cable in Russia. The programming will include both international and local content, and we plan to gradually increase the number of local programs.”
