Manga Production Company, Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s MiSK Foundation’s affiliate, announced the signing of an agreement with MBC Group. As per the deal, the Saudi-Japanese movie titled The Journey will stream on the latter’s video on-demand platform, Shahid VIP, as from October 1, 2021.
It was agreed that the film will be available in Arabic and Japanese to give viewers a chance to choose their preferred language. The agreement is testament to the success of a series of previous projects between Manga Productions and MBC Group. The Journey has been receiving a lot of good reviews in the region, especially since it was earlier distributed by VOX cinemas across the MENA region.
Dr. Issam Bukhari, CEO of Manga Productions, expressed her excitement on the deal saying: “This step is a continuation of the journey of the movie (The Journey), which since its launch in the cinema has received positive resonance at the local and international levels. This step will allow audiences who did not have the opportunity to enjoy the movie in cinemas to watch it through the Shahid platform, which has proven that Saudi content and production have great momentum, and that local and international audiences are thirsty for this type of authentic entertainment content. This agreement will be the beginning of a rich and enjoyable future business between Manga Productions and MBC Group via the Shahid VIP platform”.
