Top picks from Disney and Pixar
The magic of Pixar comes to life with some of the best titles that the acclaimed animation studio has ever produced. Whether you want to re-visit the hilarious and heart-warming adventures of Mike and Sully in Monsters, Inc; enjoy the thrilling superhero action of The Incredibles family; go on a romantic interstellar adventure with WALL.E and Eve; experience the art of Paris’s fine dining scene, courtesy of a talented rat, in Ratatouille, or admire some girl power in Medieval Scotland with Brave: STARZPLAY is the ultimate destination for all Pixar lovers. And to make sure that even the little ones can join in, all movies are also available as re-records in Arabic.
And from Pixar’s parent company, Disney, comes a wide range of timeless animated classics, with the likes of Dumbo, Bolt, Tangled, Aladdin and Mulan, among others. Subscribers can also enjoy the live-action remake of the animated classic Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson, which was one of the biggest blockbusters of the last decade.
Family programmes with Arabic flavor
Children who appreciate their entertainment with a local flavour can opt for a selection of animated Arabic shows, including the hilarious misadventures of the very lazy Kaslan, the intriguing adventures of popular Emirati character- the avid reader Majid, or follow Hamdoon as he rediscovers his Arabic roots and traditions, after returning to his homeland.
The Fast and the Furious franchise is undoubtedly the biggest cinematic action series of all time. And with the anticipated release of a Hobbs and Shaw-focused spin-off this summer, STARZPLAY subscribers can catch up on the last entry in the sage, as The Fate of the Furious premieres on the platform, starting 9 June 2019.
Action fans can also watch some hotly-anticipated titles that have been recently added to STARZPLAY, such as 12 Strong (starring Chris Hemsworth), London Has Fallen (the follow-up to the widely successful Olympus Has fallen- also available on the platform), and more of Vin Diesel with The Last Witch Hunter.
Billions: Season 4 Finale
Fans of the acclaimed series Billions will be treated to the fourth season’s finale on 10 June 2019, the same day it airs in the US. And if you haven’t started watching the show, which presents a gripping forensic look at New York City’s world of high finance, all previous seasons are also currently available on STARZPLAY.
For fans of documentaries with a thrilling edge, STARZPLAY recently added Free Solo, the almost-unbelievable true account of Alex Honnold’s attempt to become the first person to ever free solo-climb El Capitan. The film grabbed the 2019 Oscar for best documentary feature.
