Top picks

Shōgun (February 27)

Ambitious men from very different worlds experience an epic collision, in this historical drama set in feudal Japan. It’s based on a 1970s novel that was previously adapted into a 1980s TV series, but the saga of a British sailor (muso Cosmo Jarvis) teaming up with a powerful samurai lord (martial arts legend Hiroyuki Sanada) is perfected in the form of a big-budget, sweeping limited series. It’s a fictionalised retelling of true, culture-clashing events: well worth a dive down the Wikipedia rabbit hole once you’ve dipped your toes into the series.

Iwájú (February 28)

Disney broadens their horizons in this exciting new sci-fi project, collaborating with Pan-African comic book company Kugali for an out-of-this-world, coming-of-age adventure. It follows two friends living in futuristic Lagos, who uncover surprising secrets and incredible possibilities in their two very different cities. Think a touch of Wakanda’s Afro-Futurist, utopian worldbuilding, plus characters and cultures that we haven’t yet seen in the realm of big-budget animated storytelling so far.
