Disney + will evolve in 2021. The press service of the platform has indeed announced the arrival of a brand new section from February 23, 2021. Called Star, it will offer more adult content to subscribers. And we know the first series that will be offered on this new channel.
Currently, Disney + 's offering is based on five different pillars: Disney content, Pixar content, Marvel content, Star Wars content and, finally, National Geographic content.
It is therefore a sixth pillar that will be added to the service as of February 23: Star.
We know the first 4 series of the new section of Disney +
Offered alongside the other five categories, this new section will bring together slightly more mature content. We are talking about films and series from the catalogs of Disney Television Studios, FX, 20th Century Studios or Touchstone. The opportunity to discover new productions a little different from those usually present on the platform.
Now, in order to promote this new category, Disney + has published the list of the first four series that will be offered through this new section:
- Big Sky: It will be a new series, a series coming to fall into the family of thrillers. We will therefore follow Cassie Dewell and Cody Hoyt, two private detectives, who will accompany a former policewoman named Jenny Hoyt in an attempt to find two sisters kidnapped by a truck driver. Until our shock trio find out that these two sisters aren't the only ones missing in the area.
- Black-ish: This time we're off to a comedy series that focuses on Dr. Johnson and his wife doctor Rainbow. The couple fully live the American dream and everything seems to smile on them. At least until Dre finds himself vice president of his advertising agency and begins to wonder if he has not turned his back on his cultural values.
- Love, Victor: A new series derived from the film of the same name. The story will focus on Victor, a new student at Creekwood high school in the midst of questioning his sexual orientation. Until he meets a former student who has known exactly the same doubts.
- Solar Opposites: Last series of the selection, Solar Opposites. This time, the series pours into the animation and it follows the adventures of four extraterrestrials who will flee their home world to find themselves in a residential neighborhood in deep America.
Four series quite different from each other, therefore. It should be noted in passing that the arrival of this new section will also result in an increase in the prices of the Disney + subscription. Subscription that will go from € 6.99 per month to € 8.99 per month for the monthly offer and from € 69.99 to € 89.99 for the annual plan.
Whether these four series deserve such an increase is a whole different debate.
