Let’s be honest – it’s The Adventures of Baby Yoda :p
I am one of those people that just signed up for Disney+ for the year. Yes, The Mandalorian was the only real new content available or that anyone was interested in. But you know what? It was worth it!
Just after the season wrapped up, Jon Favreau said that we would get more adventures of Mando and the child this coming fall. Side note/rant: I really wish companies would start using quarters instead of seasons – they are different all over the world.
But yesterday Disney+ revealed that the second season would be airing in October – just shy of a year from the debut!
I am a Star Wars fan. I can’t tell you the second cousin of the pilot on the left, but I enjoy the universe. While Disney claimed the extended universe non-canon after their acquisition of the franchise, this didn’t bother me. I was looking forward to seeing what new stories would be told. Respecting series roots is one thing, taking that universe somewhere new is another.
But it’s not just Star Wars that got some love. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier wil be coming in August. I am really curious to see how this folds in to the MCU. Will Bucky help Sam with training as his new role as Captain America? Or will it be a series of adventures that tie in somehow to the wider universe? It will be interesting to see how it works out.
The other show with a more confirmed release is WandaVision in December. This is actually sooner than its original 2021 release window. I am less interested in this show, but I will definitely give it a go. I am assuming that it will be set prior to Endgame, otherwise they are announcing major spoilers for the series. Maybe it’s set in a What If? type of thing?
Either way, it will be great to see how Disney+ is treating some potentially great material 🙂
Until next time,
