The Walt Disney Company Asia Pacific has recently announced that there will be a special “Disney Content Showcase” taking place in Singapore on November 30, 2022.
During this event, Disney will reveal details of its theatrical and streaming schedule for 2023 in the Asia Pacific regions. The exhibition will highlight the growing collection of APAC Originals on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar, narrated by some of the region’s best storytellers.
Since last year’s APAC event, we’ve seen the number of originals from the region grow, with shows like “Snowdrop,” “Rookie Cops,” “Deli Fate”, “Grid”, “Shipwreck Hunters Australia”, and more come from the region.
We don’t yet know what’s going to be revealed during the upcoming Disney Content Showcase, but it’s likely to showcase some of the big movies in theaters and some of the new originals coming to Disney+ globally from the region, including “Big Bet” and “Connect”. Plus, hopefully, some new shows and movies that we don’t know about.
Disney also announced a first-of-its-kind initiative, “The Creative Experience,” which is part of The Walt Disney Company’s continued commitment to the Asia Pacific region, as it continues to deepen its long-term collaborative relationships with the region’s creative community.
“The Creative Experience” has given a select group of attendees access to some of the company’s most influential names through a series of exclusive live panels that provide invaluable insight into the creative processes of Marvel Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Disney Live Action, 20th Century Studios, Searchlight Pictures, Pixar, Lucasfilm, National Geographic, Disney TV Studios, FX ABC and more.
Carol Choi, Head of APAC Original Content Strategy, at The Walt Disney Company, said in a statement:
“The Creative Experience aims to add further momentum to the creative growth of the region as streaming continues to improve local content production standards and storytelling. The Asia-Pacific region has world-class storytellers and talent with so much global potential, and we hope that this new the program will become an invaluable part of the creative development in the region, opening new doors of entertainment for the creative community.”
During last year’s inaugural APAC Content Showcase, Disney announced its creative ambition to greenlight over 50 APAC originals by 2023, and has since launched a growing selection of local language titles from South Korea, Japan, Southeast Asia, ANZ and Greater China on its global streaming platform Disney+.
