After the arrival of Star, Disney + is full of new features in March: Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the next series from Marvel Studios; Black Narcissus, a Star Original miniseries; or behind the scenes of the MCU in Gathering.
THE UNAVOIDABLE :
Friday March 5 – Black Narcissus (season 1)
Launched on February 23 on Disney +, the new Star world is already welcoming an exclusive fifth series called Black Narcissus. An adaptation in three episodes of the novel by Rumer Godden considered scandalous when it appeared in 1939, it tells the story of the installation of a congregation of nuns in an old harem transformed into a dispensary. On the spot, an English general is in charge of helping them to build a school for the children of the region. His presence will quickly become a source of tension, and even repressed desires, among the nuns of this place, it would seem cursed. Already adapted to the cinema in 1947, the story is here carried by the talented Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace). She notably gives the reply to the late Diana Rigg, of which it was one of the last roles on the screen. A Star Original mini-series to be discovered in its entirety on March 5.
