One Day at Disney—Friday, July 10, on Disney+
Meet Marc Smith, Director of Story, Frozen 2, at Walt Disney Animation Studios. He will show how a drawing is often the key to a moving, emotional story. With each sketch, he emotionally engages with his work to create a bond between himself and the character—i.e., he blurs the line between fiction and reality, resulting in a lifelike portrayal onscreen.

Amphibia—Saturday, July 11, at 8:20 p.m. ET on Disney Channel
Season two kicks off with “Handy Anne.” Worried something bad could happen while they are in Newtopia, Anne (voice of Brenda Song) decides to disaster-proof the farm. Then, in “Fort in the Road,” Sprig (voice of Justin Felbinger) longs for a fun road trip… but Hop Pop (voice of Disney Legend Bill Farmer) enacts strict road rules that threaten to ruin his plans.

The Owl House—Saturday, July 11, at 8:43 p.m. ET on Disney Channel
In “Sense and Sensitivity,” when the feisty yet adorable tiny warrior King (voice of Alex Hirsch) becomes a bestselling author, he learns a valuable lesson in reading the fine print.
