Disney+ Moves Up Premiere Of ‘WandaVision’ To 2020

We are still a few months off Disney+ landing in the UK on 31st March 2020. However, the streaming service has released a trailer which highlights a stack of the new content coming in the next 12 months, which includes an updated release schedule for Marvel’s WandaVision.

‘WandaVision’, which was originally scheduled for a 2021 release, sees Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany return as their MCU counterparts Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff and Vision. Whilst we don’t know the exact plot of the series, we do know it is set after the events of the Infinity Saga… which is odd, given the, erm, “state”… in which Vision was left at the end. The publicity image sees the duo as some sort of 50’s loving sitcom couple, so it would seem we’re in for something very strange and different! In the comics, Scarlet Witch is much more powerful than we’ve seen so far in the MCU, with the ability to bend reality to her will. It looks like we are about to see some of that now on screen too.

Along with moving up ‘WandaVision’, we also have ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ premiering in 2020, which sees Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprise their MCU roles. That was originally scheduled for later in 2020, but I do wonder if they will now move that up to be closer to the UK launch, so they have a big new show for this new market (that is purely speculation on my part, but it would make sense).

Other series coming in 2020 include the final season of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’, and the Muppets unscripted series ‘Muppets Now’, along with original movies ‘Stargirl’ (not to be confused with the unrelated DC series of the same name…), ‘Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made’, ‘The Phineas & Ferb Movie: Candace Against the Universe’, and ‘Secret Society of Second Born Royals’. 2020 will also see a 2nd Season of hit Star Wars drama ‘The Mandalorian’ and the terribly titled ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.’

We don’t have exact release dates for these shows & movies yet, but Disney+ launches in the UK on 31st March 2020.
