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.

Truecaller, a well-known app for identifying and blocking spam calls, is enhancing its services by allowing users to create AI versions of their voices. The new feature, available to those with access to Truecaller’s AI Assistant, stems from a partnership with Microsoft and its Azure AI Speech tool, allowing the generation of realistic AI voices that accurately mimic users’ speech patterns and tone.

“This groundbreaking capability not only adds a touch of familiarity and comfort for the users but also showcases the power of AI in transforming the way we interact with our digital assistants,” explained Truecaller product director and general manager Raphael Mimoun in a recent blog post.

The AI Assistant in Truecaller screens incoming calls, informing recipients of a caller’s purpose. Based on this information, users can decide whether to answer the call themselves or let the AI Assistant handle it.

When the feature was introduced in 2022, users could only choose from a collection of preset voices. The ability to record one’s own voice represents a significant step towards the complete personalization of the service.
