The Clap Disney (NYSE: DIS) is filming a new series based on an ancient Indian poem.
The Deets The poem the series is based on is 200,00 verses – the longest poem ever written. Disney hopes that the series will be a hit in India particularly, similar to Ramayana – a tale in Hinduism that proved to be popular during the pandemic.
The production of the series will not be an easy task, given the length of the poem and the number of resources needed to film for very long.
Why this Matters Disney, like other streaming platforms, has come under pressure lately as subscriber growth continues to wilt. It is hoped that this series will be able to attract enough new subscribers to the platform to hit its target.
