Following its acclaimed and Academy and BAFTA Award-nominated global theatrical run, Apple Original Films announced today that Ridley Scott’s action epic feature “Napoleon” will become available to stream globally on Apple TV+ beginning Friday, March 1.

Since its debut, “Napoleon” has drawn broad critical acclaim, and the film has been nominated for three Academy Awards for Best Achievement in Visual Effects, Best Achievement in Production Design and Best Achievement in Costume Design.

Directed by Scott from a screenplay by David Scarpa, “Napoleon” stars Joaquin Phoenix as the French emperor and military leader.

The film captures Napoleon’s famous battles, relentless ambition and astounding strategic mind as an extraordinary military leader and war visionary.

An Apple Studios production in conjunction with Scott Free Productions, “Napoleon” is directed and produced by Scott, and produced by Kevin Walsh, Mark Huffam and Phoenix, with Michael Pruss and Aidan Elliott serving as executive producers.
