(3:00PM -5:00PM ET/PT) MULAN
Mulan (Ming-Na Wen) is a brave young woman faced with the terrible reality that her ailing father — too old to be a soldier but too honorable not to be one — will be killed in battle. Driven by her love and devotion for her family, Mulan makes a decision that will change their lives forever. Disguising herself as a man, she secretly takes her father’s place in the Imperial army that is being gathered to meet the threat of invasion by the villainous Hun leader, Shan-Yu (Miguel Ferrer). Accompanied by her feisty, fire-breathing “wanna-be” guardian dragon, Mushu (Eddie Murphy), Mulan trains to be a brave and disciplined warrior and ultimately learns some profound lessons about courage, honor and love. “Mulan” repeats on Sunday, June 28th at 1:00PM ET/PT.
(5:00PM -7:00PM ET/PT) TARZAN
This Academy Award®-winning adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s story begins deep within the jungle when baby Tarzan (Tony Goldwyn) is adopted by a family of gorillas. Even though he is shunned as a “hairless wonder” by their leader, Tarzan is accepted by the gorillas and raised as one of their own. Together with his wisecracking ape buddy, Terk (Rosie O’Donnell), and neurotic elephant pal, Tantor (Wayne Knight), Tarzan learns how to swing through the trees and survive in the animal kingdom. His two worlds collide with the arrival of humans, forcing Tarzan to choose between a “civilized” life with the beautiful Jane (Minnie Driver) and the life he knows and loves with his gorilla family. “Tarzan” repeats on Sunday, June 28th at 3:00PM ET/PT.
