MUMBAI: Based on the channel’s programming philosophy of being a part of real kids’ lives and inspiring them to realize their dreams, Disney channel has announced a new initiative called Talk Out Loud. The initiative will give kids an opportunity to join their favorite Disney characters.

During this programme, Disney Channel will organize interactive classroom and school auditorium sessions, where the channel will invite schools to send entries for the ‘Talk Out Loud’ and give students an opportunity to interact with their favorite characters.

Commenting on the back to school program, Walt Disney Television International (India) SVP and MD Antoine Villeneuve said, “Disney Channel’s Talk Out Loud aims to connect with the audience through their own idioms while also providing a platform for fans to express themselves. Disney Channel fans have always been a part of the channel and now we are giving them an opportunity to be a popular face and voice on the Channel.”

For Talk Out Loud, 50 short-listed participants per city will be judged on their stage presence, confidence, presence of mind, diction, and unique style. The second round of auditions will further challenge the participants on confidence, creativity, wit, and humor, gift of the gab, unique interests, and the Disney Channel quotient.
