It’s been a longer wait than expected due to the pandemic, but Marvel’s WandaVision television series is set to kick off this Friday, January 15th, 2021 on Disney Plus. This is a highly anticipated new series for Disney Plus and the first two episodes drop on Friday. The nine-episode series will then air a new episode every Friday thereafter.
WandaVision on Disney Plus
WandaVision, exclusively on Disney Plus, is said to be the Marvel universe’s most comic book show yet. It is a complex storyline, to say the least, and will be released on an episodic basis. It features two characters and a setting that will be virtually impenetrable to new viewers. So much so that Marvel Studios is producing a clip show recapping critical moments of the 23-odd Marvel films that precede it. You can check out the refresher by viewing Marvel Studios Legends – also on Disney Plus.
This is exciting for popular geek culture since, in the Star Wars universe, The Mandalorian just wrapped up with an exciting finale to season 2.
Here is a brief description of what you can expect from WandaVision (Courtesy Disney):
“WandaVision,” the first Marvel Studios series created exclusively for Disney+, stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff, Paul Bettany as Vision, Kathryn Hahn as Agnes, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, who was introduced to audiences in “Captain Marvel.” Kat Dennings will reprise her role as Darcy from “Thor” and “Thor: The Dark World,” and Randall Park will reprise his role as Jimmy Woo from “Ant-Man and The Wasp.”
Marvel Studios’ “WandaVision” is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. The series is directed by Matt Shakman with Jac Schaeffer as head writer. Composer is Christophe Beck, and theme (for certain episodes) is by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Featuring nine episodes, “WandaVision” kicks off on Disney+ on January 15, 2021.
