The Disney + global boom has no signs of slowing down any time soon, especially in the Asia-Pacific markets.
Disney: Twisted Wonderland, a mobile video game developed by Aniplex and available in Asian markets, will transform into an animated series for the Disney + streaming service. This will be the most recent anime that will be available on the service. We have already reported Star Wars: Visions, the very first Star wars anime which debuted on the streaming service in September.
The adventure game Twisted Wonderland takes place in a boarding school and features characters such as Azul Ashengrotto, who can grant wishes but with a prize, and Riddle Rosehearts, a tribute to the Queen of Hearts of Alice in Wonderland.

According to a previous article, Disney has more than 27 Asia-Pacific projects planned for Disney +, and The Twisted Wonderland The anime adaptation is just one of them. Disney has even gone so far as to recruit K-Pop stars for certain features and series that will be removed from the service.

âFor many decades, The Walt Disney Company has entertained consumers and been an integral part of the local creative ecosystem.
