Disney has revealed some new details and a first-look image of the upcoming French Disney+ Original, “Irresistible”, which is coming to the streaming service in 2023.

She has a mutual love for Arthur, a mathematician. But as soon as she is in his presence, she is prone to violent panic attacks. There is no doubt about the diagnosis: Adele has post-traumatic stress syndrome, which is a direct consequence of her previous, love story. Adèle then has no choice but to stay away from Arthur. But the attraction is too strong…
