I was completely unaware of Disney's soon-to-be most watched preschool series EVER, until a few weeks ago. While in a hotel room in San Antonio, Texas, I had the Disney Channel on for Riley while we were grabbing a bite to eat and freshening up. That's when I saw Jake and the Never Land Pirates for the first time.
Riley seemed to enjoy every minute of the music-filled interactive treasure hunt and I have to admit that I quickly became a fan as well. If you and your children are Jake and the Never Land Pirates fans, keep reading to learn more about the upcoming holiday episode, and catch an exclusive sneak peek too!
Jake and the Never Land Pirates series on Disney Junior 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 Mr. Smee, from Disney's classic "Peter Pan".
Along the way, they model teamwork, problem-solving and physical activity, earning gold doubloons as they conquer a variety of tasks. The series features original "pirate rock" music performed by Sharky and Bones of The Never Land Pirate Band.
Coming up next for Jake and the Never Land Pirates is a December holiday episode, which will be followed in January by the debut of the first-ever 45-minute series special and season two of the series. Disney Junior was kind enough to allow me to post this exclusive SNEAK PEEK of the upcoming December holiday episode entitled, "It's a Winter Never Land! / Hook on Ice":
In the holiday episode, It's a Winter Never Land! / Hook on Ice, Jake, Izzy and Cubby awake to find that Peter Pan has left the crew some presents and a tree to celebrate Winter Treasure Day, and Captain Hook invites Jake and the crew on a winter treasure hunt.
