It seems like yesterday when we started 2021, and today we are already in Christmas week. Because this Friday is already Christmas Eve, and as such, the VOD services are preparing with ideal premieres for these dates, among which there is everything from the latest animated Disney classic to content other than the typical Christmas.
Fulfilling the policy of taking it to your platform a month later, this week we have Disney’s Latest Animated Classic Charm, which hit theaters in late November and is still in theaters. The film approaches the platform on Christmas days. A weighty premiere, ideal for the dates and that proposes an absolute explosion of color in its images and fun in the songs of a Lin-Manuel Miranda who is ‘on fire’ after Hamilton and The Return of Mary Poppins.
We also have a new version of Those wonderful years, Mythical series from the 80-90s, this time addressing the life of the Williams family in the 60s from the point of view of Dean, a 12-year-old boy with a lot of imagination. Her memories are based on the good and bad aspects of growing up in a middle-class black family in Montgomery, Alabama.
At Prime Video we have your heavyweight for the month, Being the Ricardos, a series directed by the prestigious Aaron Sorkin and starring Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem, based on one of the greatest television icons in the United States: Lucille Ball. In the series, she and her husband Desi Arnaz are threatened by serious personal accusations, political discredit and cultural taboos. The film takes the viewer into the writers room and soundstage as it shows what happens to Ball and Arnaz out of doors in a critical week during the production of their groundbreaking sitcom, “I Love Lucy”.
And the success of La Wheel of time Set in an epic world where magic exists and only a few women can access it, the story follows Moiraine, when she arrives in the small town of Dos Ríos. There he embarks on a dangerous journey around the world with five young men, one of whom has been prophesied as the Dragon Reborn, who will save or destroy humanity.
