Disney Friends for Change Games 2011


Disney Friends for Change Games, the successor to the popular 2007 and 2008 Disney Channel Games that were previously filmed in Orlando, will begin airing on June 24. These games were taped in Los Angeles in March.

Viewers can expect a format similar to the 2007 games with Friends for Change Games segments shown during Disney Channel’s prime-time weekend programming for five weeks. The games will culminate with a half-hour show on July 31. In 2008, the station presented the games in self-contained shows. Fans who prefer that format can see special episodes of the Friends for Change Games at 9:30 p.m. ET Mondays beginning June 27 on Disney XD.

Tiffany Thornton (“So Random”) and Jason Earles (“Kickin’ It”) host the telecasts, and Maria Canals-Barrera (“Wizards of Waverly Place”) joins them to provide commentary.

Disney Friends for Change Games is a series of fun physical challenges inspired by everyday “green” acts. Four teams will play on behalf of environmental charities — Fauna and Flora International, World Wildlife Fund, Ocean Conservancy and UNICEF. Disney will make a $125,000 donation to each charity, and the winning team’s charity will receive an additional $100,000.

Bridgit Mendler (“Good Luck Charlie,” “Lemonade Mouth”) co-wrote and performed the new Disney’s Friends for Change anthem, “We Can Change The World,” which will be released globally June 10. All proceeds from the song will go to environmental charities through Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund.
