Renowned Egyptologist Dr. Zahi Hawass announced that he will cooperate with the leading Disney Corporation for producing artistic children's shows dedicated to Ancient Egypt. They target raising the children’s awareness regarding Ancient Egyptian history.

The new show revolves around an eight-year boy, wearing the world-famed Zahi Hawass’ hat, and unveils antiquities.

Named “Little Zahi,” the show will be later distributed around the world after the success of its first premier.

The Egyptologist highlighted that the main core of the show is the little boy who has various adventures after asking for the historical and archaeological background presented by Hawass himself.

He concluded that the idea of the show was previously introduced in 2011, but it was delayed due to the political events Egypt witnessed at that time. Moreover, he asserted that he asked for a version to be premiered in Egypt as it is a coloration project between him and Disney.
