The two networks will also air the specials Santa Pac’s Merry Berry Day and Pac’s Scary Halloween, as well as three full-length films based on well-known IP: Kong – King of the Apes: The Adventure Begins, Tarzan & Jane: Genesis and Tarzan & Jane: Tale of Two Jungles.

Meanwhile, beginning in 2020, Discovery Family Channel and Discovery Familia will air two of 41 Entertainment’s new preschool action adventure series that are currently in production, Superhero Summer Camp and Superhero Pets.
