Disney has recently announced that a brand new Japanese series, “My Family” is going to be released on Disney+ worldwide later this year.

Kazunari Ninomiya stars as Haruto Narusawa, the president of a video game company. He enjoys life in the affluent seaside town of Kamakura and lives with his wife and daughter who attend an elementary school. However, tragedy befalls this happy family when his daughter is kidnapped. Haruto must now face numerous hardships as he navigates through the complex web of human nature that begins to show its ugliness. The only way to save his beloved daughter is to take matters into his own hands without the police’s involvement and, together with his wife, stand against the kidnappers. Can this family’s story reach a happy ending? Or will theirs be a tragedy? This non-stop family suspense-thriller tests the bonds of a family facing life’s worst nightmare.


My Family features a star-studded cast of Kento Kaku, Maryjun Takahashi, Matsumoto Koshiro X, Takeshi Tomizawa of the comedy duo Sandwichman, Gaku Hamada, Hiroshi Tamaki, and more.

“My Family” is created by TBS, who has previously created the Star Original series, “Tokyo MER”, which has been released internationally on Disney+.

The first episode was released this week on TBS and on Disney+ in Japan.  No international release date has been announced yet.
