Zetus lapetus! Why is there not an entire television station dedicated to Disney Channel Original movies? These premieres were easily the highlight of my month in middle school and they need to be shared with world again.
Disney did two things right when we were kids: 1) they hit Disney’s golden age of animated feature films with hits like Aladdin and The Lion King; 2) they produced and premiered stellar Disney Channel Original Movies, including Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century and Brink!.
Although Disney continues to premiere Disney Channel Original Movies today, 16-years after the program started in 1997, it is safe to say the highest concentration of awesome was released from 1998-2005. That is not to say I don’t love later releases like High School Musical and Camp Rock, but the truth is I would pick Protozoa over Connect 3, any day.
Launch the gallery to take a look back at some of the Disney hits and see if you remember all the originals that made this list. Don’t forget to let us know in the comments what your favorite Disney Channel Original Movie is.
