If we are being honest, Netflix has pretty much become an integral part of our lives since the pandemic first hit, becoming a daily affair for us when we are commuting to work, or unwinding after a hard day’s work. Even as the world slowly regains normalcy, our love for streaming content still grows strong and just the sound of Netflix’s iconic ‘TUDUM’ can brighten our day.
To reward us loyal fans (in the most epic way possible), Netflix will be bringing together more than 145 of their biggest stars and creators virtually from all around the world, representing over 70 films and specials, to give us a day packed full of exclusives and first looks at their inaugural ‘TUDUM: A Netflix Global Fan Event’ — which will premiere on Netflix Asia YouTube on Sunday 26 September 2021 at 12AM SGT.
Here’s a look at what you can expect at the event.
