It's time to pick our jaws off the ground after getting bombarded with tons and we mean TONS of new Disney projects coming our way. After the Disney Investor Day 2020, a 4 hour long conference here are the series, projects, and movies we are most excited for.



Disney+ Series

WandaVision premiers on January 15th, 2021, and we were treated to a new trailer ahead of its release.


After much anticipation and a few COVID delays, we finally got a Falcon and the Winter Soldier trailer and it looks AMAZING,along with a March 2021 release date!


What If...? An animated series featuring familiar voices and new stories about our favorite Marvel heroes in new and exciting situations/timelines. What If T'Challa was Star-Lord? Or Peggy Carter was the Super Soldier? We are excited to see where this series goes!


Ms. Marvel staring Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan got a sizzle real and hyped us up even more for this late 2021 series release!


Our favorite god of mischief Loki got a "Glorious" trailer, we cant wait to see Tom Hiddleston take up the horned helm again in May 2021!


Three new series coming to Disney Plus: Ironheart, staring Dominique Thorne as engineer Riri Williams; Armor Wars, starring Don Cheadle, who is reprising his role as  “Rhodey” War Machine; and Secret Invasion,the Nick Fury series that will see Samuel L. Jackson in his role as the SHIELD director alongside Ben Mendelsohn’s Skrull Talos. No release dates for these projects were given.

Marvel Studios


Marvel's First Family is finally getting the MCU treatment! The Fantastic Four was Noah's gateway comic that started his love for reading comic books so to say I am excited would be an understatement! Jon Watts (Spider-Man: Homecoming&Spider-Man: Far From Home) will be directing, no release date or casting was announced. 


The third Ant-Man movie was announced and we have a feeling that this is where the Fantastic Four will be introduced. Either way, Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are officially back as Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man, and Hope van Dyne, aka The Wasp. Also, a new big bad Kang the Conquerer played by Jonathan Majors will be introduced.


Captain Marvel 2 is happening and Brie Larson is bringing Monica Rambeau played by Teyonah Parris and Ms. Marvel's Iman Vellani along with her! 


Finally, we are so excited to see how Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness ties together WandaVison and the unnamed Spider-Man 3 movie! Benedict Cumberbatch is set to reprise his role as Stephen Strange and a personal favorite America Chavez played by Xochitl Gomez will make her big-screen debut!

Disney/Pixar Animated

Disney’s next animated feature, Raya and the Last Dragon will be premiering in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access on March 5, 2021. A trailer for the film was released in October of this year and this past week we were able to meet even more of the cast of this epic fantasy film!


Disney Pixar’sTurning Red, slated to release on March 11, 2022, introduces us to Mei who is not only dealing with the regular trials and tribulations of becoming a teen, but just so happens to turn into a red panda whenever she gets too excited! The human transforming into an animal magic aspect of this is giving us nostalgic Ranma ½ vibes and we are here for it - plus she just looks like too much fun.

Warm-up your voices and dust off your habits because Whoopi Goldberg will be returning to reprise her role as Sister Mary Clarence inSister Act 3! We can’t wait to see what Vegas headliner Doloris Van Cartier has been up to! Currently, in development, it will premiere on Disney+.


Is it too much to ask for round two of “I Put a Spell on You” inHocus Pocus 2? Whether there will be a musical number or not we are looking forward to the sequel of this Halloween favorite. The best news is that it looks like Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy will be back to reprise their roles as the wicked Sanderson Sisters!

A mystery-thriller set in the Star Wars galaxy? Say no more we can't WAIT for The Acolyte, we don't have much information on this show but exploring the dark side and sith has us intrigued. Darth Plagueis anyone?
