Summer entertainment fiesta continues with the best content for children, only on STARZPLAY


Sheep, hedgehogs, chipmunks and a certain king of the jungle to keep kids entertained during the Eid holiday, and the last month before going back to school! 

The summer might be almost over and, indeed, it’s almost time for kids to go back to school. But that doesn’t mean they can’t cool off before the holidays are over with the world-class entertainment options available on STARZPLAY, the leading subscription video on demand service (SVOD) in the MENA region.



Perfect for a summer or Eid binge-watch, fans of Sonic the Hedgehog can enjoy all 76 episodes of the hit Japanese anime series Sonic X. The exciting story begins with a slight malfunction that causes Chaos Control and sends Sonic the Hedgehog to Earth. While there, Sonic meets Chris Thorndyke, who aids at collecting the Chaos Emeralds, so Sonic and his friends can go home.


With his wit, charm and classic antics, Shaun the Sheep has won the hearts of children and adults alike, garnering a huge global fanbase. The titular hero is an unusually bright and clever sheep that lives with his flock at Mossy Bottom Farm, a traditional small northern English farm. Peace turns to mayhem in the meadow as Shaun leads his flock into all sorts of scrapes and scraps, running rings around sheepdog Bitzer when the Farmers back is turned.

In addition to the series, STARZPLAY subscribers can enjoy more of Shaun and the gang in the short film Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas. The half-hour movie follows Shaun’s attempt to steal the cake the Farmer is bringing to a festival contest but ends up hiding in the latter’s jacket. At the festival, he encounters three llamas who are hypnotized by a flutist. The flute player stumbles and awakens the llamas, and hilarity ensues as they create chaos in the cake contest.

Alvin and his pals return to the small screen with the animated series Alvinnn!!! And the Chipmunks. The series follows the trials of a single parent, David Seville, trying to raise six hyperactive Chipmunks. Like most parents, Dave's patience will be pushed to the limit. 


Whether you want to revisit some unforgettable childhood moments, or  introduce the kids to a timeless classic, STARZPLAY subscribers can always opt for The Lion King, the Disney smash that remains, to this day, a firm family favourite. The story of the young prince Simba - tricked by his uncle to think he was the cause of his father death- and his long journey towards finding his identity and avenging his father death, is still as powerful today as it was 25 years ago. Parents and kids can also sing along to classic soundtrack that includes hits like Hakuna Matata, The Circle of Life and the Oscar-winning Can You Feel the Love Tonight.
