Disney+ is introducing the first local productions, original and exclusive of the platform, entirely produced in the region, with an exclusive premiere in Disney+ between the date when the platform launched in Latin America (last November 17) and the course of 2021.
Furthermore, The Walt Disney Company Latin America reinforces its commitment to producing local content, developed by and for Disney+ by renowned production houses in Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, and Argentina, and starring renowned talent from across the region. These are fiction stories, talk shows, documentaries, live shows, and more, appealing to every member of the family.
At The Walt Disney Company Latin America we know how important stories of local relevance are to our audience. That's why for more than two decades we have produced original content from and for Latin America and the rest of the world. Now with Disney+, we offer, in a unique and exclusive destination, continuous, permanent, and frequent access to this repertoire of original content from the region that connects emotionally with each family member while being accessible in other continents, allowing the rich and vast Latin American creativity to be exported.
This is why we reinforce our strategic commitment to Latin America to produce original content with the talents of the region. Initially, we have already developed more than 70 productions that are in different stages of production: 15 in Brazil, 21 in Mexico, 29 in Argentina, and 6 in Colombia," said Diego Lerner, President, The Walt Disney Company Latin America.
Disney+ also offers local Latin American production content from Disney Channels, as well as other relevant local content acquired for exclusive release to streaming subscribers in the region.
Taking into account the culture of each place, three of the new regional productions with an exclusive premiere in Disney+ were developed in three versions (Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina), related to the audiences of each country through local presenters, with Non Stop production for National Geographic.
