ALBUM SET FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 20
DVD SET FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 27
Jake and the Never Land Pirates is cable’s #1 series among Boys 2-5 and is on track to be Disney Channel’s #1 preschool series ever. It is the most co-viewed series among all Disney Junior and Nickelodeon series, with 47% of Moms watching with their preschooler. A music-filled interactive treasure hunt, the series introduces a crew of kid pirates – leader Jake and pals Izzy and Cubby – and follows their Never Land adventures as they work to outwit two infamous characters, the one and only Captain Hook and Smee, from Disney’s classic “Peter Pan.” Every episode features the animated Sharky and Bones characters as they pop up throughout to perform original pirate ditties, and each episode concludes with a live action music video featuring The Never Land Pirate Band.
We LOVE Jake, Izzy and the gang! I am one of those 47% of moms watching it with their kids. My daughter, who is 5, LOVES this show. It is her favorite. It is interesting that they say that this is #1 among boys because in our house it is #1 with the girls. It is one of the few shows that I will have all 3 of us sit and watch after school. I knew that my kiddos would be thrilled to find out about the Jake and the Neverland Pirates on DVD!
On September 27, The Walt Disney Studios will be releasing Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Yo Ho, Mateys Away!, a DVD packed full with seven episodes from the series and two incredible bonus features including Yo Ho, You Want To Be A Pirate?, where Jake teaches viewers how to talk like a pirate, and Pirate Party With Pirate-oke, a collection of music videos performed by The Never Land Pirate Band that allow viewers to enjoy with or without the sing-along/karaoke-like feature.
When this dvd arrived earlier this week I was so excited! I do not get excited about many kids shows, but this is an exception. When my daughter got home and opened the package she shouted with joy and then said “Ah hoy mates! ” It was so cute! She ran and got my son and they quickly asked (while jumping up and down) if they could watch it RIGHT NOW! I said yes since I to was excited to watch. This dvd is great because it has many short shows to choose from. So if you just want your kids to watch tv for a a short time you can pick one show to watch each time. It becomes a fun game for us to pick which we will watch each day.
Each show is Jake, Izzy and Cubby going on their journeys. Each show is exciting and funny! We all laugh out loud while watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates. As they go on adventrures they are faced with right and wrong and have to work as a team. Both things I want my kids to know and see!
And the fun continued:
Written and performed by Loren Hoskins and Kevin Hendrickson, a.k.a. Sharky and Bones of The Never Land Pirate Band, the album features 18 swashbuckling tracks sure to thrill any young pirate. Also included are downloadable activities and games to plan the perfect pirate party, a Sing-Along version of the show’s theme song and a bonus track from a future episode. The deluxe edition includes a pirate bandana. The album arrives at stores and online retailers September 20.
The album features a variety of songs that kids and parents can enjoy together. Songs include the kooky, comical “Hot Lava,” “Aw Coconuts,” “Pirate Password,” and the arrrghhh-rated “Talk Like a Pirate.” Some songs refer to popular characters in the show, such as “What’s Cookin’ Smee,” “Captain Hook (Is A Cranky Crook),” “Tick Tock Croc” and “Bucky’s Shanty.” Others capture the island spirit of Never Land, such as “Castaway on Pirate Island,” “Shipwreck Shuffle” and “Never Sky,” as well as the “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” theme song. All songs can be heard in episodes of the show.
The fun does not stop at the DVD because this set comes with a album of all of our favorite Jake songs. My personal favorite is “HOT LAVA! HOT LAVA!” My kids get a kick out of me singing along to that song! They love the intro song and sing it at the top of their songs! “Yo Hoy Mateys Awaaaay!!” We also really like “Talk Like a Pirate”! ARGGGG! You can’t help but want to sing along!
If you are in the mood for some pirate singing now you can listen to samples here from Disney.
