Diego is back for another high stakes animal rescue mission and he’s bringing along an elite team of rescuers in the new hour-long Go, Diego, Go! special, “Diego’s International Rescue League,” premiering Friday, Sept. 24, at 10:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. Actress Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels, Kill Bill Vol. 1) guests stars as the Bear Queen in the new hour-long Ni Hao, Kai-lan special, “Princess Kai-lan,” premiering Friday, Oct. 8, at 1:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. Both specials will be simulcast on Nick Mobile.
In “Diego’s International Rescue League,” Diego has assembled an elite team of rescuers who try to earn their World Rescuers’ patch. There’s Juma -- an African desert expert; Shanti – an Indian forest expert; Burgin – an expert diver and surfer from Borneo and Yang who can climb up the tallest mountains of China. The team is assembled on Rescue Island -- a special island with natural habitats from around the world. They must race against the clock in their Rescue Flyer to identify and return five eggs to their correct habitats before the time runs out.
In “Princess Kai-lan,” Kai-lan, Rintoo, Tolee and Hoho get a visit from their superhero friend, the Monkey King, who really needs their help. There’s trouble in a magical kingdom because the foxes and bears who live there won’t talk to each other. It’s up to Kai-lan and her friends to get the Fox King and the Bear Queen (Lucy Liu) together so they can encourage all of the foxes and bears to become friends. They will have to use their special powers to leap over bamboo forests, travel past a moat of giant bubbles and find their way through the majestic palaces to help unite the kingdom.
