Disney+ Day Reveals New Original Content That Was Marvel Heavy And Star Wars Light

Following on the heels of their Disney Plus IMAX announcement and not-well received the fourth-quarter financial report, Disney has hit the road running with a host of Disney+ Day announcements.

Disney+ Day November 12, 2021

Disney has definitely been in the news a lot lately, starting with the announcement that it was partnering with IMAX to present select movies on Disney+ in the IMAX enhanced format, a new one-month introductory Disney+ subscription fee of $1.99 (this promotional offer ended November 14, 2021), and news yesterday that included a lackluster fourth-quarter financial report

Well, despite some doubters, it looks like Disney+ fans hit the jackpot as Disney+ Day turned to out be a fast-paced event that had something for everyone, although details were scarce as to exact “airdates” it looks like Disney+ will of offering up a lot of original content in 2022 and beyond.

Here is a listing of some of the key content announcements made during Disney+ Day.

Marvel

She-Hulk: Tatiana Maslany, the former star of Orphan Black, goes from playing multiple clones to playing one of the strongest superheroes (yes, She-Hulk is green), as well as being a lawyer specializing in “unusual cases”. Mark Ruffalo and Tim Roth also show up for the fun.

MoonKnight: From the pages of Marvel Comics, MoonKnight explores the life of a vigilante with a dissociative identity disorder with ties to ancient Egypt. Is this Marvel’s version of Batman?

Ms. Marvel: Teenage Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) is a Pakistani American who is obsessed with Captain Marvel, and when she acquires her own superpowers, the sky is the limit.

Secret Invasion: Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Ben Mendelsohn (Talos the Skrull) team up for some interesting adventures that involve shape-shifting aliens. Are our familiar superheroes really who we think they are?

Agatha – House of Harkness: Ding Dong the witch is not dead as Kathryn Hahn returns to fan-favorite role as everyone’s favorite evil Witch. What will she be up to next?

Spiderman – Freshman Year: This is the first Spiderman Series for Disney+ as the rights to Spiderman are actually owned by Sony, so it will be interesting to see what Marvel and Sony have come up with. 

Echo: Native American deaf actress Alaqua Cox plays Echo, a new character in Marvel Univers that will be introduced first in the Marvel Hawkeye series before having her own adventures. 

Marvel Zombies: Are you tired of Zombies, Disney hopes will enjoy the spin of superheroes battling Zombies in a series.

Ironheart: A young genius, Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne) designs and builds her own Iron Man suit. How will this change her life?

I Am Groot: Everyone’s favorite plant returns for a series of shorts about its early days.

Star Wars/LucasFilm 

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Ewan McGregor returns to the Star Wars galaxy reprising the role he played in the prequels and post-Mustafar battle with Anakin Skywalker and the fall of the Jedi Order. Kenobi is on the run hiding out on Tatooine while he watches over a young Luke Skywalker. The sizzle reel clearly suggests a new battle with Darth Vader is coming and one that takes place before their final confrontation on the Death Star. Check out our companion report.

Under the Helmet: the legacy of Boba Fett: A preview is available for viewing now for Disney+ subscribers of the new Boba Fett series coming in December 2021. If you watched the Mandalorian, you got a small taste of this character’s return to the Star Wars Universe.
