This might have been the biggest news drop of 2020.
With no huge in-person conventions like Comic-Con or Disney's own D23 in 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic -- and Marvel keeping updates on its upcoming film and TV slate close to the vest -- everyone was glued to the company's Investor Day presentation for updates on the MCU, Disney Animation, Star Wars, Pixar, Disney+ and so much more.
And, man, did they deliver.
During the presentation, Disney+ confirmed that -- over the next "few years" -- the service will be home to 10 Marvel series, 10 Star Wars series, 15 Disney live action, Disney Animation and Pixar series -- as well as 15 Disney live action, Disney Animation and Pixar movies.
While the presentation was all over the place, we'll bump the Marvel and Star Wars updates to the top -- read every major announcement below!
WandaVision is the first Marvel Studios series to debut on Disney+, starring Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany's Vision, dropping January 15, 2021. While the new trailer begins with everything looking just peachy-keen between the two in throwback-sitcom fashion, it becomes clear not all is what it seems.
The show will directly tie into "Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness," which Kevin Feige promised is "really pushing the boundaries" of Marvel storytelling, will be scary and will also connect to "Spider-Man 3."
Up next for Disney+ is "Falcon and the Winter Soldier," which Feige said was a "Marvel Studios movie played out over 6 episodes," before dropping an action-packed (and very expensive-looking) trailer.
Feige confirmed "Black Widow" will still hit "the big screen" May 7, 2021, while "Loki" -- starring Tom HIddleston -- will drop on Disney+ May 2021. The show finds the titular character at "the center of his own crime thriller," following his disappearance in "Endgame."
Disney+ will also be home to the animated "What If?", exploring some superhero stories that could have been -- like Peggy Carter as Captain America -- and "Ms. Marvel," which also dropped some teaser footage.
Feige confirmed "Ms. Marvel" herself, Iman Vellani, will appear in "Captain Marvel 2." The movie will also feature a grown up Monica Rambeau, Teyonah Parris, who will first appear in "WandaVision."
After quick bits about "Eternals" and "Hawkeye," Kevin Feige also confirmed Tatiana Maslany will front "She-Hulk" on Disney+ -- which will also feature Tim Roth returning as Abomination and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk.
As for the Nick Fury series, it will revolve around the "Secret Invasion" storyline from the Marvel comics -- and include Ben Mendelshon returning as Talon as the alien shapeshifting Skrulls infiltrate Earth.
Marvel also announced an Ironheart series about Riri Williams, the creator of the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man. Dominique Thorne will star -- and both series will tie into the greater MCU.
There will also be a show about Tony Stark's tech falling into the wrong hands titled "Armor Wars," which will star Don Cheadle as War Machine ... a series of shorts about Baby Groot called "I Am Groot" ... and a "Guardians of the Galaxy" holiday special which will film in tandem with "Guardians 3." The special will drop in 2022, while the movie is due out 2023.
In other MCU updates: Christian Bale is officially on board for "Thor: Love and Thunder" as villain Gorr the God Butcher, "Blade" is "coming together," Kathryn Newton is joining the rest of the "Ant-Man" crew for "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" as a grown-up Cassie Lang, and "Spider-Man" director Jon Watts is working on a "Fantastic Four" film.
Feige ended the panel by confirming they plan to honor the late Chadwick Boseman by not recasting T'Challa -- but continuing to tell stories in the world of Wakanda with the characters introduced in the first "Black Panther" film.
"I want to acknowledge the devastating loss of a dear friend and a member of our Marvel Studios family. Chadwick Boseman was an immensely talented actor and inspirational individual who affected all of our lives both personally and professionally," Feige said. "His portrayal of T'Challa, the Black Panther, is iconic, and transcends any iteration of the character from any other medium in Marvel's past. It is for that reason that we will not recast the character."
Ryan Coogler is writing the "Black Panther" sequel film now, due out July 8, 2022.
Kathleen Kennedy confirmed "The Mandalorian" is getting two Disney+ spinoffs; "The Rangers of the New Republic" and a series revolving around Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano. The three shows will culminate in a "climactic story event."
The presentation teased Diego Luna's "Andor" series for the streamer, which added Stellan Skarsgard and Fiona Shaw to the cast, as well as Disney+'s "Obi Wan" -- will will take place 10 years after the events of "Revenge of the Sith" and see Hayden Christensen return as Darth Vader. Production is kicking off on the latter in March 2021.
In addition to a Lando Calrissian show, Lucasfilm is also working on an animated original series "The Bad Batch," an Original Series of animated short films titled "Visions," a mystery thriller about the "dark side powers in the final days of the High Republic era," a series about C-3PO and R2-D2 and a follow-up series to non-Star Wars project "Willow."
