These episodes featuring stars from other Disney shows soared to great heights of popularity back in the day - something that still has us '90s kids begging for them crossover marathons back on screen. Looks like Netflix heard our wishes and decided to answer them in the form of its latest release: a new-age crossover special of some of its highest-grossing kids series. Titled 'Game On: A Comedy Crossover Event', here's all you need to know about it
'Game On: A Comedy Crossover Event' will be available for streaming from August 10, only on Netflix.
