The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, has announced something exciting for its viewers in the United States (US), particularly Muslims.
This will be a low budget subscription video on demand program distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
Disney however, is seeking Pakistani actors for the short film. The characters in the movie entails a nine or eight-year-old Ameena, who desperately wants to celebrate Eid holiday in America. Eid isn’t recognized as a national holiday in the United States thus, Ameena knows she will have to go to school and her parents will have to work during the festive festival.
Ameena in her quest to celebrate Eid, circulates a petition around her school. When her older sister, Zara, learns this she becomes quite furious. Ameena is heartbroken when her older sister fights over this and stops talking to her.
She then struggles to make Eid a public holiday as it is a very important, yet holy festival for Ameena and her family.
After she has circulated appeals, little Ameena loses hope that she might never have the Eid celebrations again.
On the day of Eid, she felt really delighted as her parents and teachers collaborated a Eid gathering with lots of celebrations in the classroom.
No further details have yet been released about the film. However, rumors claim that Disney is looking for Pakistani artists to act as main leads in the film.
