Ramadan, celebrated March 22 – April 21, is a special time of the year for Muslims around the world. It’s a time for reflection, community, service, charity, and celebration. During Ramadan Celebration Month at Disney, we’re shining a light on Muslim employees, consumers, and fans around the world.
“Seeing the company-wide activations Disney has deployed to celebrate Ramadan brings tears to my eyes,” shared Mahin Ibrahim, director of RISE Creative Talent Pathways at The Walt Disney Studios and co-founder of Disney’s Muslim BERG. “This is the first time Disney has celebrated Ramadan in its 100-year history and it makes me proud to work here and be a part of this company.”
The Walt Disney Company is committed to celebrating and inspiring a more inclusive world through the creation of authentic, unforgettable stories, experiences, and products that capture the imagination of people from all walks of life and cultures.
“It truly is a beautiful thing when kids see something familiar on their favorite TV show or movie. ’The Eid Mystery’ episode of Mira, Royal Detective continues to be a family favorite among all my nieces,” added Saima Faheem, manager of media strategy at Disney Entertainment and another co-founder of Disney’s Muslim BERG. “The outfits, songs, food, and the small yet significant details to showcase Eid in India are a few examples of how impactful relatable content is for people of all backgrounds.”
There are numerous ways to celebrate Ramadan Celebration Month and beyond, including the following:
