For celebrities like Can Yaman, Hande Erçel, Engin Akyürek, Demet Özdemir, Disney Plus can be a disappointment! / Special Analysis – Looking at the famous names the Disney Plus platform has dated so far, one gets the impression that very effective projects are coming… In fact, he has won the love of millions like Engin Akyürek and made its mark on the last period like Can Yaman and has special audiences like Halit Ergenç.It’s a very smart tactic to bring together popular stars like Demet Özdemir and Hande Erçel.

Turkish officials of the Disney Plus platform not only set about making deals with famous names, but also shook hands with production companies for many projects. You will see the TV series Escape starring Engin Akyürek and İrem Helvacıoğlu as the first local content on Disney Plus, which will air on June 14 in Turkey. The performance of this series and the interest it will generate abroad are also of great importance in promoting Turkey.

Disney Plus’ goal of turning Turkey into a production base that has made arrangements with names like Şahan Gökbakar and Tarkan to carry out projects in different directions was also understood… We know that Şahan Gökbakar has started making Recep İvedik 7 for Prepare for Disney Plus.

It has also become clear that Tarkan will be the voice and advertising face of the platform. However, it became known that Tarkan will also provide content for Disney Plus by doing various projects. While all of this explains the importance the platform places on Turkey, it also explains the point at which our country has arrived in terms of content production.

However, one detail is overlooked… Is it that easy to bring so many famous names together and write great stories? The topic of scripting and storytelling should not be neglected. It’s the right approach for Disney Plus to tie big names to the deals it’s made, but the fact that it’s launched many projects back-to-back shows there can be significant issues surrounding the stories of those works.

TV stations in Turkey had many projects that were unsuccessful for years because of history. The producers are now also very experienced in this regard. However, digital platforms are different and very different projects are needed. How healthy and feasible is it that so many famous names are contributing great projects to Disney Plus one after the other in such a short space of time?

That’s the question mark in your head. If there are projects with famous names but not very good stories, Disney Plus’ dream of turning Turkey into a powerful content production hub could suffer. It seems that producers, players and platform officials need to be rational in this regard.
