Here's why you should watch the Eternals as it releases on Disney+ Hotstar on 12 January

~Watch the powerful immortal superheroes come together to save the Earth from never-seen-before cosmic threats on Marvel’s Eternals only on Disney+ Hotstar~

As the new phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe dawns, fans are set to witness the Eternals- a new set of superheroes exploring the realms of superpowers like never before. A race of immortal aliens from Olympia, the story of Eternals takes place across a vast period of time, primarily focusing on the present day but often venturing to ancient civilization and world events. Led by a vast ensemble, the Eternals were instructed to protect humanity from alien threats known as Deviants. With a diverse and powerful group of thinkers and fighters sharing the same cosmic energy, the Eternals hold many firsts for Marvel. From having the first openly homosexual relationship to a hearing impaired superhero, here is why the Eternals is a must-watch for all Marvel fans as they descend onto Disney+ Hotstar in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and English on January 12. 

A power-packed ensemble cast

With a well-rounded ensemble of actors like Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kit Harrington, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Barry Keoghan, Kumail Nanjiani, Don Lee, Lia McHugh, Lauren Ridloff, the Eternals is filled with God-tier talent. With such a vast ensemble, each one offers a new, distinct point-of-view painting them more as human than hero.

Academy Award-winning Direction

Oscar-winning director Chloé Zhao takes pages out of history and weaves an intricate story that spans over centuries. Zhao and writers Patrick Burleigh, Ryan Firpo and Kaz Firpo make important chapters of history come alive as the narrative keeps going back and forth and establish Eternals as the most powerful, and oldest beings in the universe. With a creative maestro like Zhao at the helm of things, the Eternals is unmissable for the sheer craft of filmmaking that it possesses.

Celebrating Diversity

Eternals is a labour of love built by people from around the world. The superheroes themselves are of diverse races and accents — Black, Latino, East Asian, Pakistani, Irish, and Caucasian. What’s more is that Lauren Ridloff played the first deaf superhero in the MCU as Makkari. Beyond that, this is the first time we see a LGBTQIA+ superhero, Phastos. He is in a committed, long-term relationship, and is the only one with a child!

A Spectacular Visual Feast

Eternals sees superheroes traverse the universe, explore unseen terrains, and battle creatures unknown to humankind. Making it a visual treat for fans, the production design was done at an extraordinary and extravagant scale, with close to five stages and 130 sets always working at full capacity. This resulted in a visually soothing and ethereal cinematic experience.

Treat to the linguaphile

Other than English, the Eternals speak and write in Sumerian, Babylonian, Sanskrit, Hindi, Arabic, and Spanish in the movie. Babylonian is an ancient language that had died out in all forms by 100 AD and we see it featured rather frequently in the film. One of only three academics in the world who is able to speak Babylonian, served as an advisor to the filmmakers to ensure that the language was as accurate as possible.
