It’s almost 2023, and Disney+ is reminding everyone of the shows and movies coming to the streamer with a whirlwind of fan favorites, as well as new programming.
Here’s the sizzle reel video for you to watch, and I’ll break down the series and movies shown after:
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”
The massive hit for Marvel is in this splashy reel due to the fact that it’s expected to debut on Disney+ in either January or February 2023.
If you can’t wait to see it again until then, it’s still in theaters.
The highly anticipated third season of “The Mandalorian” will debut on Disney+ on March 1, 2023.
When we last saw Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) at the end of “The Book of Boba Fett,” the man in armor (Emily Swallow) told him that he “is no longer a Mandalorian” because he had taken off his helmet and revealed his face. to others.
He has Grogu in tow, but now faces other challenges, including Bo-Katan Kryze (Katie Sackhoff), as he attempts to reclaim his status as a Mandalorian.
Pixar’s “Win or Lose”
Pixar’s Pete Docter highlighted this new animated series during D23 Expo 2023.
This first long-form series from the studio follows the Pickles, a middle school softball team, in the week leading up to their championship game. It is a comedy about love, rivalry and the challenges of both.
Actor Will Forte (Disney’s “Lab Rats”, “The Last Man on Earth”) will voice Coach Dan in the series, which will air on Disney+ in autumn 2023.
“Star Wars: Ahsoka”
The live-action “Star Wars: Ahsoka” limited series features actress Rosario Dawson as the main character.
Set after the fall of the Empire, the series follows former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates a new threat to a vulnerable galaxy.
The character was first introduced in the 2008 animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”, and made his live-action debut in “The Mandalorian” season 2.
The show will see Hayden Christensen reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker, alongside Natasha Liu Bordizzo who plays the live action character Sabine Wren from the animated series “Star Wars Rebels”.
“Star Wars: The Bad Batch”
The second season of this animated series will debut on Disney+ on January 4, 2023 with the first two episodes.
Months have passed since the events of Kamino at the end of season one, and the Bad Batch continues its journey navigating the Empire after the fall of the Republic.
Marvel’s “Secret Invasion”
The series continues the Skrulls story first introduced in “Captain Marvel”, and last seen at the end of the “WandaVision” series.
The Marvel series stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, Emilia Clarke as Abigaile Brand, and Ben Mendelsohn as a Skrull called Talos.
A teaser trailer was shown at D23 Expo 2023, but no Disney+ debut date has been given.
There are a couple of clips from season two of Marvel’s hit series, “Loki,” starring Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson.
Season one started the multiverse plotline that will continue through phase five of Marvel’s films and series. Can’t wait to see what problems the “God of Mischief” gets into in the new season!
“American Born Chinese”
This new Disney+ series from filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton (“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”) focuses on American teenager Jin Wang (played by Ben Wang), whose parents immigrated from Taiwan. He struggles to figure out exactly who he should be, socially and culturally.
This is complicated by his aunt Guanyin (Michelle Yeoh, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”), who is actually the powerful Buddhist Bodhisattva of Compassion. Ke Huy Quan (“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”) co-stars.
No air date has been given for the series, but I hope to hear about one during next month’s Television Critics Association (TCA) press events.
“Peter Pan and Wendy”
This is a new reimagining of the classic story from Wendy’s point of view, and was part of the Walt Disney Studios presentation at D23 Expo 2023.
It stars Alexander Molony (Peter Pan), Ever Anderson (Wendy), Alyssa Wapanâtahk (Tiger Lily) and Jude Law (Captain Hook).
No date was given for the film’s debut on Disney+.
Pixar’s “Dug Days: Carl’s Date”
This is the first time this series has been mentioned, but it appears to be a continuation of the “Dug Day” series that aired in 2021.
Whether this is a season two or just a separate story is unknown, but hopefully I’ll learn more next month at the TCA press events.
