(3:00PM -5:00PM ET/PT) SLEEPING BEAUTY
“Sleeping Beauty” tells the story of Princess Aurora and the evil curse placed on her by vengeful fairy Maleficent. According to the prophecy, Aurora will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into a deep slumber on her 16th birthday, from which only the kiss of her true love can awaken her. Three doting fairies – Flora, Fauna and Merryweather – whisk Aurora away to raise her deep in the forest where Maleficent cannot find her. One day while riding in the woods, Prince Phillip meets Aurora, now known as Briar Rose, and the two fall in love. But when Rose learns from the fairies that she is a princess and must return to the castle immediately to fulfill her royal duties, she is devastated at the thought of leaving Philip. Once back at the castle, Maleficent fulfills her curse, putting Princess Aurora in a deep sleep. The prince rushes to the castle to rescue Aurora but first must battle Maleficent, who assumes the form of a fierce, fire-spouting dragon.
“Sleeping Beauty” repeats on Sunday, September 13th at 2:00PM ET/PT.
(5:00PM -7:00PM ET/PT) TOY STORY
Set in a world where toys have a life of their own when people are not present, “Toy Story” takes moviegoers on a fantastic fun-filled journey, viewed mostly through the eyes of two rival toys: Woody (Tom Hanks), a pull-string talking cowboy; and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), a superhero space action-figure. The comically mismatched duo eventually learn to put aside their differences when circumstances separate them from their owner, Andy (John Morris), and they find themselves on a hilarious adventure-filled mission where the only way they can survive is to form an uneasy alliance. “Toy Story” repeats on Sunday, September 13th at 4:00PM ET/PT.
(7:00PM–9:00PM ET/PT) TOY STORY 2
The toys are back in town and ready to play once again this exciting sequel, picking up as Andy heads off to Cowboy Camp, leaving his toys to their own devices. Things shift into high gear when an obsessive toy collector named Al McWhiggin (Wayne Knight), owner of Al’s Toy Barn, kidnaps Woody (Tom Hanks). At Al’s apartment, Woody discovers that he is a highly valued collectible from a 1950s TV show called “Woody’s Roundup,” and he meets the other prized toys from that show – Jessie the cowgirl (Joan Cusack), Bullseye the horse and Stinky Pete the Prospector (Kelsey Grammer). Back at the scene of the crime, Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and the gang from Andy’s room — Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles), Slinky Dog (Jim Varney), Rex (Wallace Shawn) and Hamm (John Ratzenberger) — spring into action to rescue their pal from winding up as a museum piece. The toys get into one predicament after another in their daring race to get Woody home before Andy returns. “Toy Story 2” repeats on Sunday, September 13th at 6:00PM ET/PT
(9:00PM-11:15PM ET/PT) WRECK-IT RALPH
For decades, Ralph (John C. Reilly) has played the bad guy in his popular video game. In a bold move, he embarks on an action-packed adventure and sets out to prove to everyone that he is a true hero with a big heart. As he explores exciting new worlds, he teams up with some unlikely new friends including feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman). Then, when an evil enemy threatens their world, Ralph realizes he holds the fate of the entire arcade in his massive hands. “Wreck-It Ralph” repeats on Sunday, September 13th at 8:00PM ET/PT.
(11:15PM – 1:30AM ET/PT) MONSTERS, INC.
Set in Monstropolis, a thriving company town where monsters of all shapes and sizes reside, the film follows the hilarious misadventures of James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) and his best friend, roommate, and coworker, Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal). Both work at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream processing factory in the monster world, where Sulley is the top kid Scarer and Mike is his enthusiastic Scare Assistant. The main power source in the monster world is the collected screams of human children. At Monsters, Inc., an elite team of Scarers is responsible for gathering those precious natural resources. Complicating matters is the fact that monsters believe human children to be toxic and direct contact with them is forbidden. When a little girl named Boo accidentally follows Sulley back into his world, he finds his career in jeopardy and his life in utter chaos. Assisted by Mike, he schemes to rectify his mistake but the trio becomes caught up in a series of complications and unexpected intrigue beyond their wildest dreams. “Monsters, Inc.” repeats on Sunday, September 13th at 10:00pm ET/PT.
