Disney+ Enters the Anime Chat

Disney has announced on October 14th that it will be adapting its mobile game by Aniplex "Twisted Wonderland" into an anime. Though no release date has been announced yet, this news adds Disney+ as a fierce competitor for other streaming services such as Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Netflix.

According to Disney President Luke Kang at the Walt Disney Company Asia Pacific, “Today, we are making another commitment by combining the global resources of the company with the best content creators from Asia Pacific to develop and produce original stories on Disney+. With over-the-top services going mainstream, emergence of world-class content from Asia Pacific and rising consumer sophistication, we believe that this is the right time for us to deepen our collaboration with the region's best content creators to deliver unparalleled storytelling to global audiences.”

Regardless of the outcome this could prove to be a win for anime fans, providing more opportunities for future content.
