There are lots of great new Star Originals coming to Disney+ in March including new episodes of “Pam & Tommy”, “Queens”, “The Wonder Years” and a brand new film, “Fresh”.
Unlike Disney+ Originals, the availability of Star Originals can vary between countries due to pre-existing streaming contracts. These are also usually available on Hulu in the United States and on Star+ in Latin America.
Here’s a look at some of the “Star Originals” coming in March:
Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. From Executive Producer Elizabeth Meriwether, “The Dropout” is the story of Elizabeth Holmes (Amanda Seyfried) and Theranos, an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye?
“The Dropout” is coming to Disney+ internationally and on Hulu from Thursday 3rd March.
“FRESH” follows Noa (Daisy Edgar-Jones), who meets the alluring Steve (Sebastian Stan) at a grocery store and – given her frustration with dating apps – takes a chance and gives him her number. After their first date, Noa is smitten and accepts Steve’s invitation to a romantic weekend getaway. Only to find that her new paramour has been hiding some unusual appetites.
“Fresh” is coming to Hulu in the US and on Disney+ internationally on March 4th
Pam & Tommy
Set in the Wild West early days of the Internet, “Pam & Tommy” is based on the incredible true story of the Pamela Anderson (Lily James) and Tommy Lee (Sebastian Stan) sex tape. Stolen from the couple’s home by a disgruntled contractor (Seth Rogen), the video went from underground bootleg-VHS curiosity to full-blown cultural obsession when it hit the Web in 1997. A love story, crime caper and cautionary tale rolled into one, the eight-part original limited series explores the intersection of privacy, technology and celebrity, tracing the origins of our current Reality TV Era to a stolen tape seen by millions but meant to have an audience of just two.
New episodes are going to be released on Disney+ internationally every Wednesday throughout March. In the US, this series will be available on Hulu on the same days.
