The streaming service continues to expand its East Asian content and has announced that a series adaptation of the recently-released feature film “Anita,” a biopic of the actor and Cantopop singing star Anita Mui, will be coming to Disney+. “Anita (Director’s Cut)” will comprise five episodes of 45 minutes and be available on the platform from Feb. 2, 2022.
Directed by Longman Leung and produced by Edko Films, the film tells the story of Anita Mui who was the very definition of a cultural icon during Hong Kong’s golden age in the eighties and nineties. With a career that began at the age of 4 in an amusement park, Mui dedicated almost her whole life to music. Behind stardom, her personal life, passion at work and the love for friends made her an irreplaceable role model of “The Daughter of Hong Kong”. The film opens with her final concert and looks back on her life and legacy. (via dsineyplusinformer)
