From science fiction to romance and horror: there will be 6 Star Original titles coming to Disney+, here are all the details.
Not only films and TV series for children and young people: from February 23 on Disney+ will be the new Star channel, with lots of content aimed purely at adults. At the time of launch, the platform will host 249 films, 42 TV series and 6 Star Original titles, i.e. produced by the company and available exclusively on the new channel.
The project was announced during the Investor Day organized by the company at the end of 2020 and is now finally about to become reality. Among the new features is the introduction of Parental Control: adults will be able to decide to enter a PIN for particular content, thus keeping under control the use by children. On the other hand, Disney+ was created as a container of titles for children and young people, who will be able to continue to watch their favorite programs on the Pixar, Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic channels. The offer therefore also adapts to the tastes of parents and all adults subscribing to the service. Among the upcoming content there will be 6 Star Original titles. Let's get to know them better.
