While Disney surprised last weekend with the launch of a wide variety of exclusive series and movies for the long-awaited streaming platform of the cartoon company (among which was the return of ‘Lizzie McGuaire’, or ‘The Mandalorian ‘), Apple is doing the same.
Thus, the company with the bitten apple is beginning to reel off some of its first releases for what will become its official streaming platform, officially baptized with the name of Apple TV + , immediately after knowing the advances of ‘The Morning Show’ and ‘For All Mankind’.
Now, Apple has decided to pause and move on to comedy, presenting us with an official 59-second teaser trailer in which it shows us the actress Hailee Steinfeld (‘Bumblebee’ or ‘Courage of Law’) in the role of the poet Emma Dickinson , in one created and written by Alena Smith (‘The Affair’ or the spectacular ‘The Newsroom’).
What can we expect from the biopic ‘Dickinson’
Although we still know little about this new series, which apparently will have chapters that do not exceed 30 minutes each , if we have known some aspects related to the plot, and with the own Steinfeld in fiction in the role of the American poet.
As Apple comments, it is a series created by Alena Smith, in whichinvestigates what could become the most rebellious version of the young American writer .
To do this, it shows us a story of maturity, in which the limitations of society, gender and family will be explored from the perspective of Dickinson herself, where we can see the rebellions, doubts, concerns and desires of her youth.
It would therefore be a period production with a modern touch, somewhat more contemporary despite actually being a period story.
In the cast of ‘Dickinson’, in addition to Hailee Steinfeld herself, we will meet Jane Krakowski, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt, Toby Huss and Adran Enscoe among others.
Remember that Apple TV + will become a reality in November and will cost $9.99 per month. Of course, it will only be available in the United States, so for the moment in our country we will have to stay with the desire. Indeed, exactly the same thing that will happen with Disney +, which will also reach the American country (and many other countries), but from Spain… nothing.

Who was Emily Dickinson
Although her original name was Emily Elizabeth Dickinson, she was more popularly known by the simple name of Emily Dickinson . She was born on December 10, 1830 in Amherst (Massachusetts) and died on May 15, 1886 at the age of 55 years suffering from nephritis.
She was an American poet whose work stood out for its special sensitivity and depth. So much so that she has come to be considered one of the greatest English-speaking poets and writers of all time.
One of her official biographers wrote of her that “ she was a specialist in light ”, about her own poetic nature. And she has come to be compared to poets and writers in the style of Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Frost, Walt Whitman or Ralph Waldo Emerson, among others.
