Disney Channel Premiere Films was a series of movies which debuted on the Disney Channel from 1983 to 1997, after which they were renamed Disney Channel Original Movies.

Both series have received criticism for providing "inferior" remakes of or sequels to older films, such as two sequels to the sixties Disney classic The Parent Trap or a miniseries adaptation of the nineteenth century classic novel Heidi, which is best known for the 1937 timeless film with Shirley Temple.
