Disney launches trailer for ‘Bluey’ special ‘The Sign’

Disney Branded Television has unveiled the trailer for The Sign, the first extended-length special of the hit series Bluey, premiering 14 April at 12 am PDT on Disney+, 7 am EDT/PDT on Disney Junior, and 7:30 am EDT/PDT on Disney Channel. The week prior, on 7 April, a new standard-length episode, Ghostbasket, will premiere at 12 am PDT on Disney+, 7 am EDT/PDT on Disney Junior, and 7:30 am EDT/PDT on Disney Channel.

According to Nielsen, Bluey started the year 2024 as the number one most-streamed series across all audiences and the number one series for preschoolers and kids overall in the U.S. The 7 April episode Ghostbasket sees the return of the much-loved grannies, Janet and Rita, played by Bluey and Bingo.

The Sign is the longest episode ever of the global hit TV show. 

Dave McCormack and Melanie Zanetti reprise their roles as the voices of Bandit and Chilli Heeler, and Patrick Brammall returns as the voice of Uncle Rad, Claudia O’Doherty as Frisky, alongside Megan Washington as Calypso, Myf Warhurst as Trixie, and Rose Byrne as Aunt Brandy. Making their Bluey  voice debut, this special episode introduces Rove McManus, Deborah Mailman, Brendan Williams and Joel Edgerton. 

Created and written by Joe Brumm, the series follows Bluey, a lovable and inexhaustible Blue Heeler dog who lives with her Mum, Dad, and little sister, Bingo. Bluey uses her limitless energy to play games that unfold in unpredictable and hilarious ways, bringing her family and the whole neighbourhood into her world of fun.

Both episodes will air first via ABC Kids in Australia and then roll out globally the same day across Disney+, Disney Junior and Disney Channel in all other available regions (with the exception of China and New Zealand).

Jointly commissioned by ABC Children’s and BBC Studios Kids & Family, Bluey is produced by the multiple Emmy Award-winning Ludo Studio for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and BBC Studios Kids & Family. The series airs and streams to U.S. and global audiences (outside of Australia, New Zealand and China) across Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney+ through a global broadcasting deal between BBC Studios Kids & Family and Disney Branded Television.
