Even Pedro Pascal, who plays Din Djarin in the series, had hinted at Brazil’s Comic Con Experience that there would be some exciting new surprises in store. This series follows Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin and Grogu, or “Baby Yoda” to some fans.
Dug Days returns to Disney+ with a new installment, titled “Carl’s Date.” We don’t have a confirmed date for this new installment, but here’s a brief overview of the series, per Disney+:
Pixar Animation Studios’ “Dug Days” is a series of shorts that follows the humorous misadventures of Dug, the lovable dog from Disney and Pixar’s “Up.” Each card features everyday events that happen in Dug’s backyard, through the intriguing (and slightly distorted) eyes of our favorite talking dog. Written and directed by Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Bob Peterson.
Loki Season 2 will premiere in 2023, although we don’t have a confirmed date. We recently reported how this season might look different from Season 1, as Doctor Strange might have something to do with this new series, given his impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Either way, things are definitely going to be interesting this upcoming season with God of Mischief.
Announced at this year’s D23, Peter Pan and Wendy will follow the adventures of Peter Pan, Wendy, Captain Hook and several other characters we know and love from the past Peter Pan adaptations.

Also announced at D23 this year, Win or lose is the first full-length series from Pixar. Starring Will Forte as Coach Dan, this series follows a high school softball team the week of their championship game. Each episode will be told from the perspective of a different character, and we can’t wait to see how the stories unfold in this series!

Secret Invasion is a Marvel crossover miniseries featuring Nick Fury, who has a new look: he now shows off the scarred eye and no longer has the iconic eyepatch. As we recently covered, here’s a look at what this series will entail:
Secret Invasion is a newly announced series headed to Disney+ that stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as Skrull Talos — characters who first met in “Captain Marvel.” The crossover event series showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls that have been infiltrating Earth for years.
American born Chinese is a new Disney+ Original series based on a graphic novel of the same name. This story follows Jin Wang, a teenager who works to balance his social life and home life. His world then changes when he meets a new student on the first day of school and becomes involved in a battle between Chinese mythological gods.
Crater, a Disney+ Original movie, is a coming-of-age story set on a lunar colony. Here’s a closer look at what this film will contain, per IMDb:
After the death of his father, a boy growing up on a lunar mining colony takes a trip to explore a legendary crater with his four best friends before being permanently relocated to another planet.
And finally season 2 of The Bad Batcha Star Wars TV series, will premiere on January 4, 2023. The second season received several positive reviews from certain content creators and critics, who were able to watch some of the episodes ahead of the premiere date.
