Disney Plus is entering 2021 with many shows, movies, and shorts in their hands, with “Wanda Vision” being the poster for their first month of the year. What an incredible year was 2020 for the platform. Disney managed to create its own space in the already filled in the market of streaming services. It was already a little easy for the platform as it now serves as a home to abundant content that is loved by a huge number of viewers worldwide.
From Disney classics to new originals, all the Star Wars movies to the brand new “The Mandalorian Season 2”, from classic Pixar movies to new animated ventures and the most prominent big dinosaur Marvel Cinematic Universe coming along with everything related to marvel on the platform is now streaming.
It seems that Pandemic may have affected the movie and television business. Still, the streaming service definitely succeeded in making its mark by supporting Mulan’s releases and Pixar’s Soul onto the platform. Additionally, Disney surprisingly keeps adding classic content for the audience who want to revisit their memories and spark nostalgia in the air.
Also, Marvel will be delivering its new original shows on the platform in 2021 after completely zero releases in 2020. So fans are tuned in and excited to see their favorite superhero house up and going.
Like we said above, Wanda Vision will definitely be the poster boy with fans wondering when and what will take place in the show since the trailer was completely out of context and mysterious. Plus, recently, Marvel Studios announced at Disney’s Annual Investor Day Presentation that a list of Marvel projects would be landing on Disney Plus in 2021, reverting to a year full of no Marvel Movies.
On the other hand, Star Wars is arriving with its Destiny series, a collection of Star Wars shorts intended to keep the audience entertained. Apart from these big guns, Marry Poppins Returns and another show from Marvel Studios, “Legends,” will be hitting the platform in the January of 2021.
With an amazing end to 2020’s December, where we saw The Mandolrian’s second season making its mark all over the streaming market and Pixar releasing Soul before the end of the year, Disney has made sure the subscribers don’t go anywhere. The question comes what to expect from Disney’s streaming platform in 2021.
So here we are with the list of everything coming to Disney Plus with their update in the first month of 2021.
