The Disney Channel’s animated series ‘Sago’ (pictured) is coming to Netflix in a live-action, animated-movie format, which will be available to stream exclusively in the US.
The new show is a direct adaptation of the novel by Margaret Atwood and stars Tom Felton, David Harbour, and John Leguizamo, who plays the title character.
It is the first of two live-actions of the series.
The first will air on Netflix in 2018, and the second in 2019.
“Sago is a new kind of storytelling,” Disney CEO Jim Gianopulos said during the company’s investor call.
“It takes place in a world of magic, intrigue and intrigue, all the while being a story about family, friendship and a struggle for survival.”
‘Sango’ is currently in production, with the first season set to be released later this year.
It was also revealed earlier this month that Disney is currently producing two additional seasons of the show in a series order that is expected to last until 2021.
The company’s TV series will be made available to Netflix through the Disney Channel on September 20, 2019.
The series, which has been in production since 2013, will be the first in a planned 10-episode live-Action television series.
Disney previously revealed plans for the show to air on the Disney XD network in 2019 and on the Netflix streaming service in 2020.
‘Sesame Street’ and ‘The Muppets’ will both be part of Disney XD’s live-TV streaming service, which is currently under development.
The show, which was recently renewed for a fifth season, has been available on Disney Channel since 2017, and was renewed for another season on November 20, 2018.
“We are thrilled to partner with Disney Channel to deliver Disney’s award-winning animation series, Sesame Street and The MuppETS to Netflix members around the world,” said Bill Hagerty, president and CEO of Disney Channel.
“These are some of the most beloved shows on the planet and we look forward to seeing them all come to Netflix as a part of our future streaming offerings.”
