WandaVision Just Got Bumped To A 2020 Release

WandaVision
MARVEL STANS ASSEMBLE!

We already knew that Disney+ was going to really bring it in 2020, but we didn’t realize how hard they were going to go.

Something that fans really anticipate from Disney+ is all of the Marvel shows that we’re going to be getting. Originally in 2020, Disney was just going to release The Falcon & The Winter Soldier. (Which you don’t understand how excited we are for.) And more shows would follow in the next few years. But Disney gave us quite the gift.

In the “What’s Coming to Disney+ in 2020″ trailer below, they announce that WandaVision is now slated for a 2020 release! The show was originally due to come out spring of 2021.

Not much is known about the WandaVision tv show because you know how Marvel is with their secrets. We just want to know what to expect cause… Well… Vision is dead. F*ck you, Thanos.

All we can 100% confirm is that Paul Bettney and Elizabeth Olsen will both be reprising their roles as Vision and Wanda. Other reprisals include Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis (Thor) and Randall Park back as Jimmy Woo (Ant-Man and the Wasp).

So basically, get ready. If you’re Marvel Stans like we are, you are going to be treated real good for the next few years. We’re still due for the Loki Series, What If, and Hawkeye.

Stan Lee 1 Year Later, We Love Him 3000

Stan Lee

We don’t know about you but we still cannot believe that the great Stan Lee is gone… Let alone has been for a year.

Stan Lee has given us a whole universe that helps us escape hard times. A world full of the most amazing heroes imaginable. But he was the real hero in giving us them.

When he tragically passed, the world was well… Shook. We lost a huge icon that we were in mourning over for months… To be honest we still are in mourning.

Stan Lee

The thought of watching all of the new upcoming Marvel movies without a Stan Lee cameo is physically painful. Sure, there is CGI but it’s honestly not the same.

How can we remember him?

The best way to remember Stan the Man would be, of course, to have a Marvel marathon. Coincidentally Disney+ came out today and it contains many many Marvel titles.

So watch them, feel them, live them, and cry to them. We know we will… Especially Endgame… Because we’re still not over that movie.

So watch the movies, read the comics, and remember the man that gave us this amazing universe. We love Stan 3000.

Always remember… Excelsior! (Excelsior means “ever upward” in Latin)

A Wizards Of Waverley Place Reunion?

Wizards Of Waverley Place

When speaking to Entertainment Tonight at Disneyland recently, David Henrie gave us hope for everything we’ve ever wanted – a Wizards Of Waverley Place reunion. When speaking to them, David (Justin Russo) revealed he regularly chats about a potential reunion with co-star Selena Gomez (Alex Russo).

This is what he said they would like to see for a potential reunion…

What made the Russo’s special is that we were a family. The show ended, someone won the competition. So we want to start the show a few years later. Start them off at the worst place ever, so that throughout the series, you give them a nice, beautiful arc of uniting.

So start them out divided. Alex is a fashionista, killing it in some other part of the realm. Justin is the principal who has a family now at WizTech. Max has the sub-shop but its run down.

Start us all out completely discombobulated, then throughout the course of the series, bring us all together.

David Henrie.

Is it just us… or did he say SERIES? Not a movie, a SERIES. Our inner teenager is screaming. We NEED this.

David then took to Twitter to ask fans what they thought of a possible WOWP reunion.

And it seems as if head writer and executive producer from seasons 1-3, Peter Murrieta even wants it!

So far, this is all just speculation. David did say during his interview no formal chats have happened yet. But a Lizzie McGuire reunion was just announced for Disney+, and we are living in the age of re-boots, so we live in hope.

Check out David‘s full interview at Disneyland with Entertainment Tonight here, where he also speaks about life as a dad, and mentoring the next generation of Disney Stars.

Kingdom Hearts III DLC Trailer Set for September 9

Kingdom Hearts III is set to have a new trailer for the downloadable content “Re:Mind.” Square Enix will release the trailer on September 9 at 11AM EST / 8AM PST. “Re:Mind” is due out this winter, and if you missed the official trailer for it back in June you can watch it here.

There’s not too much known about the upcoming DLC, other than that we’ll finally be able to play as Roxas again. The official Twitter for Kingdom Hearts shared that a new trailer will release next week. What it could contain… we’re not really sure. What we ARE hoping for is some clarity, or maybe just a voiceover so it looks like Square put in any kind of effort. At the very least, we really want a release date.

It’s extremely likely that a release date will be given only because it’s supposed to launch sometime this year and we’re running out of days. The DLC was revealed earlier this year, the trailer in June, and that’s all we know about “Re:Mind” so far. Fans have a theory that Square Enix will show off the Kingdom Hearts III DLC at Tokyo Game Show 2019.

Kingdom Hearts III is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The upcoming DLC is set to release at some point this winter. For PlayStation users, you can pick up a copy of Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far at any local store that carries video games if you wanna keep up with all the action. Xbox users, we’re so sorry.

Every Movie From Disney’s D23 Expo.

Disney gives fans an idea of what to expect through 2020 and Beyond.

Today in Anaheim, California at the D23 Expo, Disney gave fans a peek of all of their upcoming movies. While they didn’t show anything from their Fox slate of films, there was still plenty to see.

Star Wars – The Rise of Skywalker

Poster: LucasFilm / Disney

Disney started by bringing up Kathleen Kennedy and JJ Abrams. They talked about the film “Being a wrap up to a saga that began over 40 years ago.” From there they brought the rest of the cast, including, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, the droids of course, and newcomer to the Star Wars franchise Keri Russell.

Keri Russell described her character as “Shady. Kind of a criminal. And sort of this old friend of Poe’s.”

Anthony Daniels tells the fans that he can’t believe the Skywalker Saga is Ending, “But what an ending. I can’t wait for you to all see what we’ve been working on. You’ll love it.”

Next, the crowd saw the poster for the upcoming film. It highlights Rey and Kylo battling on what appears to be a part of a ship, behind them the face of Emperor Palpatine.

According to Twitter the footage was something special.

According to many sources, we should expect to see the footage shown at D23 this coming Monday. We will have to sit back and wait, because I cannot wait!

Star Wars – The Rise Of Skywalker will release December 20th, 2019.

Black Panther II

Ryan Coogler came on stage with Kevin Feige, who has had a bit of a rough week, to officially announce Black Panther II. Two things have been confirmed from the announcements. The first treatment of the script has been completed. The official title has not yet been finalized. It is probably safe to assume that Chadwick Boseman will return to star. The film is set to release May 6, 2022.

The Eternals

Next up Marvel brought out the cast of The Eternals, the next movie on the cosmic side of the MCU.

They officially announced Gemma Chan to be playing Sersi, another member of the Eternals. Sersi has been a member of the Avengers in the comics. This isn’t Gemma’s first time in the MCU. She previously played Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel.

They also announced that Kit Harrington famous for his role as Jon Snow (or was it Aegon Targaryen?) will be playing Dane Whitman who is also known as the Black Knight. Barry Keoghan who was previously seen in Dunkirk, and is about to star in Y: The Last Man on FX as Yorick Brown was also announced to be playing Druig.

The Eternals will also Star Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Brian Tyree Henry, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Lauren Ridloff and Dong-seok Ma. The Eternals is set to release November 6, 2020.

Black Widow

Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, and Florence Pugh were unable to attend the expo as they are busy filming the movie, however, they did send a video from the set. They showed the San Diego Comic-Con footage again but showed a couple of new bits as well. The most notable is a short scene between Florence Pugh‘s Yelena and Johansson‘s Natasha.

Jungle Cruise

Dwayne Johnson made his entrance on a full-sized Jungle Cruise boat in order to show some footage of the new movie. Of course, there is a reference to the backside of water. Nothing has been officially released yet, but Dwayne Johnson explained the movie by saying “Big action, big comedy, big romance, but most of all… it has me!” and that it is inspired by films like Indiana Jones and Romancing the Stone.

Emily Blunt also came out, this time in an old-timey car, and showed another cut of the trailer with her character as the main hero. While neither is the final trailer, fan reactions seem to be positive.

Jungle Cruise releases on July 24, 2020.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Angelina Jolie came on stage again with Elle Fanning, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Chiwetel Ejiofor to show some footage from the upcoming movie. A small clip of a conversation between Pfeiffers and Jolie’s character was shown. The movie releases soon, so its possible Disney didn’t want to share too much.

The film will release on October 18, 2019.

Mulan

Director Niki Caro came on stage to show some new footage from the film. A couple of snippets from different scenes were shown.

We’ll see how the non-musical remake turns out when it releases on March 27, 2020.

Cruella

We got our first look at Emma Stone as Cruella De Vil from the upcoming film. A video from set was sent in and not too much information was shared. The film was described as ‘Punk Rock’ and seems to be set in the 1970’s London. The Film will also star Emma Thompson, Pual Walter Hauser, and Joel Fry. It will release on May 28, 2021.

Pixar’s Soul

Photo: Disney

A new film was announced coming from Pixar named Soul. Pete Docter introduced the film by asking “Why am I here? where did I come from? And what am I here for?”

The footage shown shows the main character Joe played by Jamie Foxx getting his chance at his dream gig, playing at the Club of Dreams. From there, he falls into an open manhole and possibly dies? His Soul then goes through a ‘Soul Seminar’ where souls are trained. The film is about Joe getting back to earth to play his jazz set.

Jon Batiste is writing original jazz songs, and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are producing the score.

The film also stars Questlove, Phylicia Rashad, Daveed Diggs, and Tina Fey.

Pixar’s other movie in 2020 Onward was shown next. Stars Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus showed 8 minutes of new footage from the movie.

The plot is definitely a bit different than what we’ve seen from Pixar in the past. Reportedly, its about the two elf brothers Ian and Barley resurrecting their deceased father for a day with a magic spell. However, only the bottom half is resurrected. They then go on an adventure to find a gem to bring him back fully.

You can watch the previously released teaser trailer below.

Tom Holland also addressed the Spider-Man controversy to the crowd after the footage.

Listen guys, it’s been a crazy week, but I want to let you know I’m grateful from the bottom of my heart. I love you 3000!” Dont worry, we’re already over here crying.

Onward will release on March 6, 2020.

Raya and the Last Dragon

Walt Disney Animation Studios came out to close the show and debuted a new film.

Raya is a mix between classic Disney animation and Hong Kong action films according to writer Adele Lim. It takes from Southeast Asian culture and folk tales. The film is set in a realm called Lumandra, described as “a reimagined earth inhabited by an ancient civilization.” Five clans form the land of the dragon, and Raya is determined to find the last dragon.

Cassie Steele will voice the lead character Raya, and Akwafina voices Sisu, the Dragon in the movie. An official logo and concept art have been released and can be seen below. The film will release in November, 2020.

To finish out the show, clips of Frozen II was shown. Sterling K. Brown as Lieutenant Matthias and Evan Rachel Wood as Queen Iduna were announced to join the cast.

The film was described as a completion of the story from the first. Director Chris Buck said

Why does Elsa have powers. Why does Anna NOT have powers? Where were their parents going when their ship went down? And is there such a thing as Happily Ever After?

Footage of Queen Iduna singing a lullaby to young Anna and Elsa was shown in a flashback.
