Disney has announced that the Spanish series, “Pancho Villa: El Centauro del Norte”, aka “Pancho Villa: The Centaur of the North”, will be coming to Disney+ in many countries around the world, including in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand on July 19th 2023, which is also when the show will premiere on Star+ in Latin America.
This Spanish language action biopic chronicles the life of Doroteo Arango “Pancho Villa”, beginning from his life as a young bandit to the ambush that would result in his death, revealing a man fascinated with his own myth and who would do anything to grow it. Unfavorable historians relay the story to Hollywood figures eager to film the Robin Hood-esque character, who ranges from a womanizer to a cold-blooded killer, to an antagonist to the United States and the Mexican Napoleon. But above all, this was a man with an undying commitment to the Mexican Revolution. The good and bad sides of Pancho Villa are examined, from when he survived as a bandit to the grandiose personality that would bring him to become General Pancho Villa, Centaur of the North, the antihero fighting for redemption. Something more than human, perhaps even mystical, steeped in contradictions, Villa would generate hate, scorn, and respect.
The series consists of ten episodes and stars Jorge A. Jimenez, Juan Luis Medina and Leonardo Alonso.
