If you’ve ever been stuck in Qatar at 3am and wondered where you could get your hands on some All Hail King Julien dubbed into Arabic, your prayers have been answered. On August 1, the all-Arabic Dreamworks Channel will launch throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), in partnership with the beIN network.
The 24-hour Dreamworks Channel, which launched in the Asia Pacific region in July 2015, will eventually include many of Dreamworks’ signature series, such as Dragons: Race to the Edge, Dinotrux, All Hail King Julien, The Adventures of Puss in Boots, and Dawn of the Croods. A daily morning preschool block will offer Guess with Jess, Roary the Racing Car, and Little Red Tractor.
“We seek to meet the needs of our large audience of children in the region and our goal is to provide educational and entertaining services to children and families through our designated channels,” said Yousef Mohammed Al-Obaidly, executive vice president of beIN Media Group. “We are preparing for more partnership with the DreamWorks.”
