Disney has officially announced that it will be releasing a brand new original documentary, “Mija”, on Disney+ in the United States on Friday 16th September 2022.
The documentary features Doris Muñoz and Jacks Haupt, two daughters of immigrants from Mexico who are both navigating their careers in the music industry. Seeking to provide for their families while achieving their dreams, Doris and Jacks bond over the ever-present guilt of being the first American-born members of their families and the financial risks of pursuing their dreams. For them, the pressure of success is heightened because it is their family’s hope for green cards and family reunification.
“Mija” is a moving love letter to immigrants and their children. Director Isabel Castro’s intimate debut feature constructs an ethereal vision and dedication to the daughters that fight for their families, their dreams and themselves.
Disney has acquired the global distribution rights to “Mija”. However, an international release date hasn’t yet been announced.
