Disney has announced that it will be releasing the Marvel Studios “Ms Marvel” series in Pakistan exclusively in theatres, because Disney+ currently isn’t available within Pakistan.
This special release will see the series split into three separate releases that will happen through June and July.
The announcement was made on Instagram by Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, who has directed three episodes of the Disney+ series.
I have exciting news to share: An Eid present for #Pakistan!! We are bringing Ms.Marvel to theaters across the country!! Marvel Studios’ “Ms Marvel” to be Released in Cinemas in Pakistan
The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios have a special announcement to make. Marvel Studios’ new original series “Ms Marvel” will be released exclusively in cinemas only in Pakistan, through their licensee HKC Entertainment. @hkcentertainment @disneyplus
Disney and Marvel will be specially creating a cinema format version of the six episode series for Pakistan, split into three parts as follows:
Episode 1 and 2 will debut on 16th June
Episodes 3 and 4 will debut on 30th June
Episodes 5 and 6 will debut on 14th July
This decision was made to celebrate the introduction of the first Pakistani Marvel superhero, Kamala Khan (played by Iman Vellani), into the MCU. The series also features a diverse cast both in front of and behind the camera. Disney and Marvel did not want Pakistani audiences to miss out on seeing Ms Marvel and her story as Disney+ has not yet launched in their country.
This is certainly good news for Marvel fans in Pakistan and will give them an excellent way of watching the first Pakistani superhero join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
‘Ms Marvel’ will arrive on Disney+ everywhere else on Wednesday 8th June 2022, with new episodes being released weekly.
What do you think of Pakistan getting a theatrical release for ‘Ms Marvel’?
