The most anticipated Disney+ series
MFC TOP 5
In a world dominated by streaming platforms, it was only a matter of time before Disney launched its own. This is how Disney+ arrives, the new streaming platform of Mickey’s house, that will be available in the United States in November 2019.
In order to expand the Disney+ catalog and place it as one of the preferred platforms, Disney has been acquiring studios and licenses, such as Marvel, Star Wars and 21st Century Fox, in addition to removing its series and films from other platforms. This, added to the already extensive Disney’s catalog, expands the borders of the company in terms of the production of exclusive content for its streaming service.
There are many series and movies that Disney is currently producing for Disney+. In MFC we have a TOP 5 of the most anticipated series of the platform.
5. Marvel’s What If…?
The first animated series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is based on the What If? line of comics, published by Marvel since 1977.
The series will explore alternative versions of the 23 films that are in the Marvel Studios Infinity Saga, based on what would have happened to create new and unexpected stories. The episodes will be narrated by Uatu the Watcher, a character with the mission of observing Earth’s events without intervening in them and whose voice will be provided by the actor Jeffrey Wright.
4. Untitled Cassian Andor Series
Yet without a definitive title, this series aims to expand the Star Wars universe from the perspective of Cassian Andor (played by Diego Luna), the spy of the Rebellion that we previously met in Rogue One: a Star Wars Story (Gareth Edwards, 2016).
The series will explore the period in which the Rebellion arose against the Galactic Empire, as well as the different conflicts that gave rise to what happened in Rogue One and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (George Lucas, 1977). It will be released in 2021.
Back at the MCU, we will enjoy more of the God of mischief in Loki, to be released in 2021.
Tom Hiddleston returns to play one of the fan favorites Marvel Studios characters, this time returning to the wickedness that characterized Loki during Thor (Kenneth Branagh, 2011) and The Avengers (Joss Whedon, 2012).
The series will be set after the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019) and will narrate the adventures of Loki after having escaped in possession of the Tesseract.
2. The Falcon & The Winter Soldier
As a fundamental piece for the Marvel Studios Phase 4 comes The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a series that tells the fight of the two avengers against the villain Helmut Zemo, who we previously met in Captain America: Civil War (Anthony and Joe Russo, 2016), played by Daniel Brühl.
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will reprise their roles as Falcon and Bucky, heroes who will continue with the legacy of Captain America after the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019). Its premiere is scheduled for 2020, along with other Marvel series that will lead the Disney+ catalog.
1. The Mandalorian
Finally, we will explore the distant Outer Rim of the Galaxy in The Mandalorian, one of the first series that will be available at Disney+ launching.
In the show, we will enjoy the story of a bounty hunter from the Mandalorian, a former clan of mercenaries, years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (Richard Marquand, 1983).
The series will take the tropes of the western genre and will star Pedro Pascal. In it, we will meet the Galaxy after the fall of the Empire and before the rise of the First Order. It will be directed by Jon Favreau and will feature performances by Gina Carano, Werner Herzog, and Taika Waititi.
