'THE ROCKETEER' WILL HAVE ITS EXCLUSIVE WORLD TELEVISION PREMIERE
 ON THE DISNEY CHANNEL, SEPT. 27
 BURBANK, Calif., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Walt Disney Pictures' adventure movie "The Rocketeer" will have its world television premiere on The Disney Channel's "The Magical World of Disney" on Sunday, Sept. 27, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT), announced Bruce Rider, senior vice president of programming for The Disney Channel.
 Based on Dave Stevens' popular comic book, this special effects- filled adventure stars Bill Campbell as Cliff Secord, a barnstorming stunt pilot from the 1930s, who discovers an experimental rocket- powered backpack that enables him to fly. With the pack and helmet on, this ordinary guy becomes an extraordinary hero -- The Rocketeer.
 Relying on the rocket pack, his own ingenuity and the help of his girlfriend Jenny (Jennifer Connelly), Cliff must fend off villains, such as Hollywood matinee idol Neville Sinclair (Timothy Dalton), who will stop at nothing to take control of the device and use it in their quests to rule the world.
 "The Rocketeer" stars Campbell as Cliff, Alan Arkin as Peevy, Connelly as Jenny, Paul Sorvino as Eddie Valentine and Dalton as Neville Sinclair. Joe Johnston directed the film from a screenplay by Danny Bilson and Paul De Meo, based on the story by Bilson, De Meo and William Dear. Lawrence Gordon, Charles Gordon and Lloyd Levin produced "The Rocketeer," and Larry Franco served as the executive producer.
 The Disney Channel is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS).
