On December 10th, Disney had their Investor Day event where they revealed some HUGE things to get everyone excited for what is to come. It’s super easy to get overwhelmed with everything that is being thrown around online, so here is a very simple (but long) list of everything Disney announced!
This list is broken up into two parts. Marvel Announcements and Disney Announcements.
wanda vision trailer
The new trailer that they released looks super dope, and has me personally very excited for this show. This is the first of many things that Disney talked about, that shows how much money and effort is being put into their new shows. This show looks like it has a Marvel Movie budget, and it has been confirmed that this show will directly connect with the events in Doctor Strange 2.
Disney and Marvel are focusing on making their MCU shows very important in the main film continuity. This is a smart move on Disney’s part, since their Disney+ streaming service has been lackluster so far.
DOCTOR STRANGE 2: MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS
The hype has been unreal for the new Spider-Man 3 movie, with the idea of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield returning. However, that is a Sony property and was not touched on by Disney at this event.
What WAS touched on was Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. This movie will continue where Spider-Man 3 leaves off, and I imagine this film is going to dive deeper into the multiple Spider-Men and other comic book universes.
The film is being directed by Sam Raimi (Director of the original Spider-Man trilogy) and is said to have tons of awesome cameos from all sorts of Marvel characters. It was also revealed that Rachel McAdams will be returning for this film. McAdams played Christine Palmer, Strange’s love interest in the first film.
THe falcon and winter soldier trailer
A super dope trailer that shows us what to expect from this show. Nothing crazy to really look into, just be ready for a fun action packed show!
This show is going to be so awesome. If you aren’t super up to date on all of your MCU movies, this is going to be one that you might want to watch Avengers Endgame before. Just to understand how Loki ends up here.
The trailer gives us a look at what we can expect from the show. Loki is going to be working for Marvel’s resident time police, and I can’t wait to see all of the shenanigans that can come from the god of mischief traveling all through time.
We even see Loki as the infamous D.B Cooper, who if you have no idea who that is. Click here.
“what if…?” series
We get a first look at the new animated “What If…?” series. This will be taking an animated look at what if the MCU that we know was different. For example what if T’challa became Star Lord instead of Black Panther?
Looks like a ton of fun, and just another awesome addition to Disney+ in the near future!
Not only did we get to see a first look of the new Ms. Marvel show coming to Disney+ but we also found out that Ms. Marvel will be showing up in Captain Marvel 2. This is big news, because this is our first big example of the MCU shows directly interacting with the MCU films.
So if you plan on seeing Captain Marvel 2 in theatres, you will need to pay for that Disney+ subscription and watch all of Ms. Marvel!
hawkeye on disney+
Disney confirmed that their Hawkeye series on Disney+ will be live on the streaming service next fall. Set photos have been all over the internet lately so this came as no surprise.
People are really looking forward to seeing the actress Hailee Steinfeld play the character Kate Bishop in the new show. Set photos have been going viral of the actress suited up.
She Hulk is going to be having a lot of MCU film vets in the show. As they confirmed that Mark Ruffalo will be reprising his role as the Hulk. As well as letting us know that the character Abomination from the Incredible Hulk movie starring Edward Norton will be showing up as well!
Not many people were a fan of the Norton leading Hulk film, but everyone is super excited to see Abomination return to the MCU! They also told us what to expect from the show, saying that it will be a lot of “court room drama.” They then teased Marvel’s favorite lawyer Matt Murdock aka Daredevil making an appearance.
Secret Invasion is a popular comic book crossover event in Marvel comics. This show will be centered around Nick Fury and will be about the hunting down of the shape shifting villains The Skrulls.
In the comics, The Skrulls have replaced several Marvel heroes and we have to figure out who to trust. It should be a really fun show, and I am curious on who we may see make an appearance. Iron Man is a big deal in the comic version, but as he is dead in the MCU we will have to find some other big hero names to come to play.
iron heart series
Iron Heart is the next step in Marvels Young Avengers plan. This show will center around the teenage, female Iron Man named Riri Williams played by Dominique Thorne.
I imagine all of these young heroes are going to come together in the near future for a huge Avengers style team up film. Hopefully these shows are tremendous and gets everyone hyped for it!
armor wars series
Don Cheadle’s War Machine character will be getting his own Disney+ show. Fans are very excited to see this, as his character kind of fell from relevancy after the second Iron Man film.
This show will center around the fact that Stark Technology has spread to the bad guys, and it’s up to good ol’ War Machine to save the day!
guardians of the galaxy holiday special
James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be filming next year, and while they are filming it they are also going to film a Disney+ Holiday special to be released around Christmas.
This is going to be a lot of fun and it’s the kind of thing that hopefully we will see more of in the future!
i am groot shorts
Along with the holiday special, Guardians fans can look forward to a series of I Am Groot shorts centered around the fan favorite Baby Groot character.
thor love and thunder
Although we were well aware of this movie, Disney did reveal one giant thing to us. Christian Bale will be joining the cast as Gore the God Butcher.
In the comics, this character blames the loss of his family on the God’s. So he hunts them down and kills them. I imagine we will see a lot of Thor’s friends and family die in this movie…
black panther 2
Marvel confirmed that they will be continuing with Black Panther 2, and they will NOT be recasting Chadwick Boseman’s character. We don’t know what that means, or who will take up the mantle of the Black Panther, but we know that his legacy will be honored.
fantastic 4 movie
This is the big news from the entire event. Marvel announced that they are going to be making a Fantastic Four film directed by Jon Watts (Director of the MCU Spider-Man films.)
The Fantastic Four are called ‘Marvel’s First Family” for a reason. Considered the top of the top of Marvel heroes, and yet they have not had an impressive track record for movies.
Fox had the rights to this team of Marvel Royalty, but when Disney bought Fox; it was time for the First Family to take their spot in the MCU. Fans are over the moon excited to see the most popular Marvel characters make their mark.
ant man 3 quantumania
Ant Man will be getting a third film! From the looks of the title it appears that Paul Rudd will be going into the Quantum Relm and shenanigans will ensue!
alien tv show – fx
For fans of the classic Alien films, get excited!! Or disappointed! We shall see in due time!
Disney will be making an Alien show for FX and it will supposedly be set on earth… so do with that information what you will!
ice age spin off
Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild will be coming to Disney+ and will be a spin off of the popular animated films.
The spin off will focus around the funny little possums and their leader Buck Wild. This is something that is going to be a lot of fun for the kids, and for fans of the Ice Age movies.
beauty and the beast prequel series
Disney announced that they are going to be making a prequel series for their live action Beauty and the Beast film. The show will center around Gaston and Lefou who are the antagonist of the classic story.
I’m not sure how interesting this series will be… but they have the creators of the show “Once Upon A Time” working on it, so I have faith that it will be good!
diary of a wimpy kid
This is something I think is really awesome. Disney is making a CGI animated Diary of a Wimpy Kid film for Disney+. As a huge fan of the book series growing up, I was disappointed by the live action films.
I think this CGI world that looks a ton like the illustrations in the books, will be a lot better version that can stay super true to the books. I see this being a big success, and we will probably get a film for every book!
chip and dale rescue rangers
This is going to be awesome. The team behind the Lonely Island are working on a Rescue Ranger show for Disney+. Not only is this show going to be hilarious, but the cast for Chip and Dale is tremendous.
John Mulaney and Andy Samberg (SNL Veterans) are going to be voicing the iconic characters for the show. If you don’t know anything about these two, I highly recommend you watching John Mulaney’s Netflix specials, and Andy Samberg has a collection of movies, as well as being the lead in the Brooklyn 99 show.
pinocchio live action film
Disney is working on their live action Pinocchio film! Starring Tom Hanks as Geppetto and a CG Pinocchio character that looks just like the original animation version of the character.
This is going to be a really good movie, and Disney announced that you will be able to watch right at home, on Disney+.
peter pan and wendy
We didn’t get much about the new live action Peter Pan & Wendy film. But we do know that it is starring Jude Law, and it will be available on Disney+.
Disney is really doubling down on their streaming service. These films would do tremendous only in theatres, but they are trying to get their subscribers numbers way way up.
A sequel to the Disney film ‘Enchanted’ is getting a sequel! Disenchanted will be having the star Amy Adams return for her role! The first film was really funny, let’s hope the sequel is just as good, if not better!
hocus pocus 2
Enchanted isn’t the only film getting a sequel. The beloved halloween classic Hocus Pocus will be getting a new movie very soon!
Fans are overjoyed about this, and I don’t blame them. This past halloween season, I was seeing a ton of people talking about the first film, and wishing there were more. Wish granted!
Oh man! Disney and Pixar are making a Buzz Lightyear movie. But let’s be very clear, this is not Buzz Lightyear the toy, that we saw in all of the Toy Story films. This is about Buzz Lightyear the character in which the toy was created.
I know this is a bit complicated, but this movie is going to be an action movie starring Buzz Lightyear. This is the movie that created a whole line of action figures, and one of those action figures ended in Andy’s room sparking Toy Story. So there will be no Woody guys.
Chris Evans will be voicing Buzz Lightyear in this movie, and before you get upset saying “But Tim Allen!” just remember, this is not the toy that we see in Toy Story, this the character that the toy is based on.
When I was a kid, there was a show called Buzz Lightyear and Star Command. This show was very similar, as it was showing us the adventures of Buzz Lightyear the character, not the toy.
The show was absolutely awesome, so I am very excited to see this new movie. I hope it starts it’s own animated universe where we can dive deep into the world of Buzz Lightyear!
So are you excited for everything that Disney is releasing over the next few years? I know I am! Be sure to follow us on instagram to keep up with news as it comes out, and other fun movie and show related fun!
