Disney fans in the Middle East and North Africa will now be able to enjoy Disney XD programmes in Arabic courtesy of pay-TV network OSN.
OSN has announced that from 2018, shows will be available in Arabic, opening up the popular TV channel to a larger and more diverse audience. The announcement follows the exclusive release of much-loved animated television series, DuckTales and Big Hero 6, on Disney XD in April, this year.
Children and teens will be able to experience Disney XD’s roster of animated and live-action shows in Arabic. Popular series such as Marvel’s Spider-Man, Star vs The Forces of Evil and the new Big City Greens, will all be available to watch in Arabic. Audiences who prefer to watch the content in English will still have the option to continue watching in English.
Disney XD’s content has already proved a huge hit with viewers this year, with shows such as the reboot of the iconic classic American animated television series, DuckTales, where Scrooge McDuck reunites with the legendary Donald Duck. The show gives a modern take on the original tale while staying true to its roots. Famous British actor, David Tennant, is the voice of Scrooge McDuck, with Louie Duck voiced by Saturday Night Live star, Bobby Moynihan.
Also airing on the OSN network Disner XD channel, is the award-winning Big Hero 6, the movie, where fans can find out what happens next to the characters on Disney XD.
