Disney+ streaming service planning on getting a villains' series

Content is king if you want to acquire and retain customers, and streaming platforms know this better than anyone else.

They are now augmenting this line-up with a series on some of Disney's most popular villains.

Here's more.

Villains

'Book of Enchantment' to have Disney's popular villains

Book of Enchantment is based on the popular villain-centric series of novels by Serena Valentino.

Michael Seitzman is set to direct the series which will delve into Disney's own archive of popular villains, many of whom we have seen in films and shows that shaped our childhood.

Notably, considering Disney's vast repository of memorable villains, this series could have multiple seasons on the platform.

Who are the villains we can expect to see?

Since the series will be based on Valentino's novels, we can expect to see villains like the titular monster from Beauty and the Beast, Maleficent, and Ursula from Little Mermaid among other antagonists. All of them together should make for a fascinating collaborative series.
