Surprising: Disney announces dozens of new movies and series

Especially Disney+ will be massively expanded

No one had expected this to be such a big deal: Disney announces ten Marvel and "Star Wars" series and 15 brand-new Disney and Pixar films. What sounds unbelievable at first was presented during Disney's Investor Day. "Star Wars" in particular will be stocked with plenty of content, including a film by Patty Jenkins called "Star Wars - Rogue Squadron", the new film directed by Taika Waititi and the animated film "A Droid Story", which is about an all-new droid alongside C-3PO and R2-D2.

Other Lucasfilm and Disney projects include an "Obi-Wan Kenobi" series with Ewan McGregor and the two series "Rangers Of The New Republic" and "Ahsoka" - both, of course, from the "Mandalorian" era. Harrison Ford will return to the big screen twice, firstly in "Rogue Squadron" and secondly in a new "Indiana Jones" by James Mangold. Animation company Pixar will not be resting either, and will be launching a Buzz Lightyear spinoff of "Toy Story" as well as a "Cars" series. Marvel, of course, hasn't been short on new content either. Among the upcoming projects are three brand new Disney+ series: "Secret Invasion" starring Samuel L. Jackson, "Ironheart" starring Dominique Thorne and "Armor Wars" starring Don Cheadle. New MCU movies include "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" and a "Fantastic Four" film directed by Jon Watts. Filming on "Black Panther II," directed by Ryan Coogler, is scheduled to begin in August and will do so completely without Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa.

Another innovation also directly affects Disney+, because from the end of February, a new section for adult content called Star can be accessed in Europe, Canada and New Zealand. In return, however, the price will be increased a bit worldwide. Of course you can watch all the new teasers and trailers in highest quality on our channel.
