Disney Channel Original Movie
Disney Channel Original Movies or DCOM (Formerly a "Zoog Disney Channel Movie") is any movie that is produced under the Disney Channel canon. They have been made at a rate of at once a year since 1999. The first Disney Channel Original Movie was the movie Tiger Town while the most recent one coming out is Zapped.

This is a list of movies produced for the U.S. cable channel Disney Channel. Such movies are currently called Disney Channel Original Movies (DCOM), and were previously known as Disney Channel Premiere Films.

At their peak, the DCOMs were released at a rate of approximately one per month, although this trend has slowed to an average one every two months, although in the summer, it's about three movies in three months usually for some marathon or theme they have celebrating summer. Most hit films are subsequently released on home video.
