Dubai, UAE – 8th April 2020: This month, OSN – the region’s leading entertainment network – is bringing a host of new Disney+ Original content to OSN Movies First.

Leading OSN’s exciting content lineup this weekend is ‘The Mandalorian’ – the epic first-ever live-action Star Wars series. After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. ‘The Mandalorian’ is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order and follows the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic. Premiering on Thursday 9th April at 21:00 UAE / 20:00 KSA, OSN will host a one-off special event on OSN Movies First, where OSN subscribers will be able to enjoy episode one and two of ‘The Mandalorian’ back-to-back.
Next up is ‘Lady and the Tramp’, a timeless retelling of the 1955 classic, voiced by Tessa Thompson (Lady), Ashley Jensen (Jock), Benedict Wong (Bull), Justin Theroux (Tramp), Sam Elliott (Trusty) and Janelle Monáe (Peg). The film follows the tale of a pampered house dog and a tough but lovable stray as they embark on an unexpected adventure and, despite their differences, grow closer and come to understand the value of home. Available to watch on Friday 10th April at 20:00 UAE / 19:00 KSA, ‘Lady and the Tramp’is a must-see for the whole family.
And for those who love a coming-of-age story, OSN brings ‘Stargirl’ as part of its new and exclusive content. Based on the critically acclaimed New York Times’ best-selling young adult novel, the film follows an unassuming high schooler who finds himself inexplicably drawn to a free-spirited new girl, whose unconventional ways change how they see themselves and their world.
