disney+ releases new mena content in september

Disney is making plenty of progress as it expands into the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region after launching in 16 separate markets some months back. The corporation is now releasing fresh content for MENA subscribers, which is set to debut on the 8th of September.

The programming upgrade is intended to mark Disney+ Day celebrations and will see global premieres launching from Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic, and general entertainment from Star — as well as original titles from Disney itself.

The new line-up has plenty to offer:

Mike

This eight-episode mini-series explores the controversial life of boxing legend Mike Tyson. Creator and screenwriter Steve Rogers will uncover Mike’s professional and personal life, in what looks to be a fascinating documentary drama.

Welcome To The Club

A new short series set in the universe of The Simpsons. In this new animated storyline, Lisa Simpson tries her hand at being bad and realizes it can be a lot of fun!

Cars On The Road

The series follows famous race car Lightning McQueen and his best friend Mater as they leave Radiator Springs on a cross-country adventure to visit Mater’s sister. Produced by Marc Sondheimer, the nine-episode show is directed by Steve Purcell, Brian Fee, and Bobby Podesta.

Thor – Love & Thunder

Marvel Studios’ famous Norse god, played by Chris Hemsworth, is a story of self-discovery, with an action-filled twist in the form of Gorr – the God Butcher, a galactic killer seeking the extinction of all deities (portrayed by Christian Bale). The fantasy space adventure also features Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson.

Pinocchio

The classic Disney puppet is going on a journey to finally become a real boy. The movie features a star-studded cast that includes Tom Hanks, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cynthia Erivo, Keegan-Michael Key, and Luke Evans.

The initiative aims to inspire women to actively participate in the technology industry, aligning with broader diversity efforts. Reflecting the Kingdom’s commitment to equality, the focus on “Women in Tech” coincides with the increasing female participation at LEAP events.

Annabelle Mander, Senior Vice President of Tahaluf, emphasized the event’s commitment to gender inclusivity, stating, “Female representation is across all of LEAP’s features and reflects the event’s mission of driving economic diversification and providing market access to international business.

The “Women in Tech” program will feature distinguished speakers including Nadine Hachach Haram, CEO and Founder of Proximie, and Sahar Albanarna from IMPACTIQUE Bahrain, who explained: “Over 26 million women worldwide with professional experience and degrees are not in the global workplace. This demographic includes a huge pool of untapped talent which technology can help unleash to fuel the co-creation of exponential solutions across multiple sectors. To help women access productive employment, we urge industry leaders to support high-impact female entrepreneurs as a means to boost their economies and accelerate the UN’s sustainable development goals by promoting inclusive and sustainable economic growth”.

The event will also provide a platform for female-led startups and entrepreneurs to pitch for funding and support through various initiatives such as the Women’s Investor Forum, Entrepreneur Mentorship Scheme, and the Aviatrix Award at the Rocket Fuel pitch competition, offering a prize fund of US$150,000.
